    Tom Cruise’s mother dies at 80

    Tom Cruise‘s mother, Mary Lee South, has died at 80 years old, reps for the actor confirmed to Page Six Monday.

    South, who reportedly dealt with health issues in recent years, died in her sleep last week, People reported. A memorial was held for her over the weekend at her local Church of Scientology. Cruise, 54, along with his sisters, were present for the service.

    A former special education teacher, South enjoyed what would be her final Mother’s Day with Cruise’s son, Connor, 22, in Clearwater, Fl., last May. She accompanied her movie star son to the Golden Globes in 2009.

    In an interview with Rolling Stone, South spoke of Cruise’s talent and how she and second husband, Jack, supported his career.

    “Tom said, ‘Let me see. I really feel that this is what I want to do.’ And we both wholeheartedly agreed, because we both felt it was a God-given talent, and he should explore it because he was so enthused about it,” she said in 1986. “So to make a long story short, we gave him our blessing — and the rest is history.”

    Poor guy. He's a crazy Scientologist but I feel for anyone who loses a parent. No snark today.

    I think there were, and that it was because his mother was starting to drift back towards Catholicism as she declined in health and that was a big No No for Mr Supah OT.

    RIP.

    To make myself sound just as crass and twatty as I am, I wonder if this will cause him to twist off. Again. Or more. Or something.

    He always seemed very close to her. Maybe this will be a crack that will get him away from that crazy faux religion.

    I think this is going to be particularly rough for him. That, or he'll button up even tighter.

    RIP. Losing a parent sucks.

    Before that, she had not been seen since 2010."

    That sounds kind of ominous, especially from the Scientology angle of the story. Ick.
