Connor Cruise celebrated turning 18 with his sister Isabella having a DJ gig and taking to the decks at the Boujis nightclub in South Kensington
Connor Cruise, Tom Cruise’s son, celebrated turning 18 yesterday having a DJ gig and taking to the decks at the trendy Boujis nightclub in South Kensington, London.
Connor Cruise had his biggest fan there to watch him – in the form of big sister Isabella, 20.
Connor and Isabella Cruise, who have always had a close relationship, were adopted by Tom Cruise and second wife Nicole Kidman.
He was dressed casually to celebrate his birthday and wore a red plaid shirt along with black trousers and matching lace-up shoes.
Joined by a group of friends in the club they drank Grey Goose Vodka and had some crack baby shots, which went down well.
Connor and Isabella Cruise both wrapped up warm to combat the cold weather, with Connor in a simple black coat and his sister sporting a khaki parka.
Isabella Cruise also wore a simple black tank top, matching skinny jeans tucked into oxblood Doc Martens and a navy beanie hat to keep her head warm.
Connor Cruise decided to pace himself before the evening’s festivities and sensibly squeezed a disco nap in.
He tweeted: “About to take a pregame nap cause I’m old before I head to @boujis for some fun.”
The comment was met with many of his Twitter followers chiding the teen for calling himself “old”, and some suggesting that his famous father was a good way ahead of him at 50.
Connor Cruise later added: “This debate over age is hilarious. All I can say is you are as young and as old as you act. In regards to my pops all I can say is #Ironman.”
Not seen today were either of the pair’s parents, who are both currently in Los Angeles.
Nicole Kidman recently said of her son and daughter in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter: “I have two children who are Scientologists – Connor and Isabella – and I utterly respect their beliefs.”
Connor Cruise, Tom Cruise’ son, proudly posted a snap of him and his sister Isabella on his Twitter page last night.
Connor Cruise, who has just followed in his father’s footsteps with his first action film role, captioned the snap simply: “Me and my sister.”
The picture showed Connor Cruise, 17, posing with her arm around Isabella, 19, both teens grinning for the camera.
Isabella Cruise was casually dressed, wearing a slick of lipstick to brighten her look.

The aspiring artist has been spotted spending lots of time with boyfriend Eddie Frencher, a fellow Scientologist, recently.
The pair shares a modest apartment in the notorious Skid row district in Downtown Los Angeles and enjoys living a less famous life than her surname demands.
Meanwhile Connor Cruise has embraced the celebrity side of life, DJ-ing at Hollywood parties and now starring in a remake of Eighties teen action film Red Dawn.
He plays Daryl Bates in the movie, a member of armed resistance forces the Wolverines.
Tom Cruise and his ex-wife Nicole Kidman adopted Isabella in 1992, nine years before their separation, and added Connor to their family in 1995.
Since their parent’s divorce Connor and Isabella have remained with their father, being home schooled at his Los Angeles home, and are rarely seen with their mother.
Isabella and Connor are siblings to Suri Cruise, the daughter of recently divorced Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.
Disc jockey Connor Cruise was spinning the tunes at the Expendables 2 party during Comic-Con in San Diego Thursday night.
Tom Cruise’s adopted son “didn’t appear to pay any attention to the scantily-clad dancers near him on the stage,” US Weekly reports.
“He was totally consumed by his DJ set.”
In reality, says the magazine, Connor Cruise has been disoriented by the quick break-up of his father, Tom Cruise and the woman who has been raising him for years – Katie Holmes.
“Connor is actually really upset,” US quotes an “insider” as saying.
“Katie was practically his mom. He called her mom, too.”

Connor Cruise, 17, and his sister Isabella, 19, were both adopted as babies by Tom Cruise while he was married to former wife, Nicole Kidman.
After their divorce, Nicole Kidman fled to Nashville with new husband, Keith Urban, and largely left the rearing of the couple to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have been together for eight years and have a six-year-old daughter, Suri.
During that time, Katie Holmes also took on the mothering role to the growing Connor and Isabella Cruise and was a regular at their school functions and sports games.
On Monday, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes reached a speedy settlement after she blindsided the Mission Impossible star by suddenly filing divorce papers June 28.
Known as DJ C-Squared, it was a stoic Connor Cruise who spun last night from a Mac computer.
“He was very focused on the screen the entire time,” the eyewitness added.
In between sets, he talked to pals sitting with him in the DJ booth.
Connor Cruise’s DJ gig came a day after he visited newly single dad Tom on the Mammoth Lakes, California set of his film, Oblivion.
Father and son seemed very free with one another and smiled easily at one another.
Tom Cruise quietly returned to Los Angeles, following a filming spell in Iceland, to spend time with adopted teenage children Connor and Isabella, from his marriage with ex Nicole Kidman.
Tom Cruise, who turned 50 yesterday, was expecting friends and family – including estranged wife Katie Holmes and his only biological child Suri – to flock to him in New York where they lived in an apartment together.
However, after Katie Holmes made a shock decision to file divorce papers last Friday, the powerful king and queen of A-list stardom have now gone their separate ways.

A source told People: “The plan was to spend his birthday with Katie and Suri (in New York City).
“Then they were going to fly to California where he is going to finish Oblivion and spend time there.”
Connor Cruise, 17, openly showed support for his father by tweeting this week: “#LaFamilia Always. Friends Come And Go, But Family Is Forever.”
The insider added: “They were all together, and one of the reasons he came back to California was that he had to take his family back to LA (in the Burbank area).”
To dampen Tom Cruise’s spirits further, is has been reported that the air between the pair is turning sour as Katie Holmes’ lawyers are said to have filed for an emergency custody and child support hearing in New York, which will see the pair come face to face for the first time since their split.
Katie Holmes, 33, has requested sole legal custody and primary physical custody of six-year-old Suri.
However, Katie Holmes seems to have been empowered by the move, venturing out for ice-cream with Suri last night with a smile painted on her face and telling reporters: “I’m alright.”
A hearing on the filing, called an emergent application, has been set for July 17, reports Radar.
