Now Woman’s Day can reveal the truth behind her heartbreak. The 51-year-old is set to lose her son Connor for good, as the 24-year-old prepares to marry a “Scientology Princess”, hand-picked for him by the church – and mum Nicole will be banned from the wedding.

Woman’s Day has learned Connor is in a long-term, serious relationship with Silvia Zanchi and is said to be engaged to the stunning fellow parishioner. A second-generation Scientologist from Italy, Silvia moved to Clearwater, Florida and fell in love with Tom Cruise and Nicole’s adopted son.

Sources in the town of Clearwater tell us they’ve been together almost a year, and are often seen in the grounds of Connor’s swanky apartment within the church’s Sandcastle waterfront hotel.
