Isabella Cruise insists she is still ''very close'' to Nicole Kidman.
The 19-year-old artist - the adopted daughter of the actress and her ex-husband Tom Cruise - has not appeared in public with her mother for several years but she has denied there is a rift in the family.
She told New Idea magazine: ''I love mom. She's my mom. She's great. I see her sometimes and I speak to her.
''We're a very close family. I love all of our family.''
Nicole - who also has adopted Connor, 17, with Tom and daughters Sunday Rose, three, and 16-month-old Faith Margaret with current spouse Keith Urban - has previously admitted
Isabella and her brother call her by her first name.
She has said: ''My kids don't call me mommy, they don't even call me mom. They call me Nicole, which I hate and tell them off for it.''
Her comments came at a time when Tom's current wife Katie Holmes admitted the two teenagers call her 'Mom'.
She said: ''Tom's first two children are incredible, really smart and kind. They call me Mom.''
Isabella opted to continue living with Tom in Beverly Hills when her parents divorced in 2001.
