Bella Cruise denies reports of a rift with parents Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise after secret wedding

It was quite the shock when Bella Cruise had a secret wedding last September without either of her parents Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise in attendance.

Now, the 23-year-old has spoken out for the first time about rumours she isn't speaking to her famous mum and dad.

"Of course [we talk], they're my parents," Bella told , adding that anyone who says otherwise is "full of s---".

According to the magazine, Tom's work schedule prevented him from coming to Bella's Scientology wedding to IT consultant Max Parker, 29, at the Dorchester Hotel in London.

However, it's less clear what prevented Nicole from making the nuptials – she was rehearsing for her West End role in London at the time. Surely she could've popped over for a celebratory drink?

Rumours have swirled for years that Bella's commitment to Scientology had fractured her relationship with her mother. She skipped Mother's Day with Nicole and spent it with Max's mum Beverley instead (gasp!).

When asked if Bella was actively detaching herself from the Hollywood lifestyle of her folks, Max told : "Yeah, you could say that. It's more [of a] weird [situation] for everyone else."

Max, who is not a member of the Church of Scientology, revealed that he didn't seek out Tom's permission to propose either. When asked about Tom not walking Bella down the aisle, Max said: "Yeah, it is what it is."

Apparently he said it "with sadness". Read into that, FIXers, because he's not giving away much.

According to Max, all has been patched up and Tom, 53, and Nicole, 48, have welcomed him into the family.

Bella and Max are certainly doing things their own way, living a low-key life in the south London suburb of Croydon, far from the bright lights of Hollywood.

They live in a converted terrace house with three other people, and Max catches public transport to work every day.

According to , the pair has even rejected financial help from Bella's parents, who are worth an estimated $850million combined. Well, you know what they say about money not buying happiness.

Bella, who considers herself "very lucky" to have her man, added that there's no truth to the pregnancy rumours…at least for now.

"I'm 23, so we'll see," she said. "I'm still a baby myself!"
