When it comes to Tom Cruise's family, the ties that bind seem to be tight ones.

The star's two children with ex Nicole Kidman, Connor and Isabella Cruise, have so far remained mum following the bombshell news of their father's divorce from Katie Holmes.

Now, Connor seems to be weighing in, taking to Twitter to allude to the news.

But has he taken a side?

"#LaFamilia‬ Always. Friends Come And Go, But Family Is Forever," the 17-year-old implied in a post that he retweeted on Sunday.

Connor has been especially tight with his father—who turns 50 today—these last few weeks, recently accompanying the Mission: Impossible star to a Friars Club gala in New York City where he was honored with the group's prestigious Entertainment Icon Award. (Little sis Suri was there, too, but Isabella was MIA.)

Also MIA these days? Holmes' wedding ring.

The 33-year-old, who is reportedly seeking sole custody of Suri, 6, stepped out in Manhattan yesterday sans her sparkler to attend the taping of an episode of Project Runway.

Holmes has been hunkering down in New York City following the split, amid speculation that Cruise's commitment to Scientology played a key role in their relationship's demise.

The church has also shot down reports that it dispatched a surveillance team to monitor her activities.

Meanwhile, Cruise, who's been on location in Iceland filming the sci-fi flick Oblivion, has left the country and is on his way back to California just in time for his 50th birthday, E! News has confirmed.

He's also hired Dennis Wasser to represent him in the divorce—the same attorney who handled his divorce from Kidman in 2001.
