Author Lawrence Wright’s new tell-all book “Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief,” tells an interesting tale of money, manipulation, and guys named Tom who believe in weird alien cult stuff.
The controversial book also goes into detail about how big a role Scientology played in the divorce between Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman- a topic which has been discussed, almost ad nauseam, throughout the years.
According to Lawrence, the church’s current leader David Miscavige became “bedazzled by the glamour surrounding” Tom in the early nineties. Tom was equally compelled by David and “fell under the spell of Miscavige’s commanding personality.” (This already reached creepy status.) In an effort to win over Tom and then wife Nicole, David engulfed the couple with a “completely deferential environment as spotless and odorless as a fairy tale,” and after learning of a fantasy the couple shared involving running around
like crazies in a field of wildflowers, David went to great lengths to make their fantasy a dream come true.
However, according to once high-ranking church official, Marty Rathbun, David freaked out when the couple started drifting away from the church in the mid-nineties and blamed Nicole, whom he saw as a “gold digger who was “faking” Scientology, thus began David’s dastardly plan to break the marriage up. Dun, dun, dun!
Marty claims that David hoped to convince the actor that his wife was a “Suppressive Person,” in order to get him back into the thick of things. According to David’s former brother-in-law, John Brousseau, things went so far as the couple’s children taking classes on how to identify a Suppressive Person. At one point the kids allegedly told John, who lived in the Cruise-Kidman household for some time, that their mom was “an S.P.!” and they “hated” going and seeing her.
Lawrence writes that after the divorce between Tom and Nicole, Tom became even more dedicated to the church and he and David grew closer. Even creepier.
As for as the short-lived relationship between Tom and aspiring actress Nazanin Boniadi- David was supposedly also responsible for that break-up. Apparently David had it with Nazanin, who allegedly auditioned for the role of Tom’s
cover girlfriend, when she asked him to repeat himself, as she couldn’t understand whatever stupid crap he was saying. Lawrence writes about the incident and how Tom lectured Nazanin; “You don’t get it, it goes like this,” Cruise said. He raised his hand over his head. “First there’s LRH.” He moved his hand down a few inches. “Then there is COB.” Bringing his hand down to his own eye level, he said, “Then there’s me.”
By the mid-2000’s his holiness, I mean Tom, was considered the unofficial Ethics Officer of Hollywood. L. Ron Hubbard would have been so proud.
TELL US- HOW MUCH OF THIS DO YOU THINK IS TRUE? ALL OF IT OR MOST OF IT?
Katie Holmes blind-side divorce to Tom Cruise six months ago isn’t the only shocking news to come down the pike. A new documentary is set to release detailing all the occult-like dramas the Scientology “religion” entails.
According to In Touch: “One of the most powerful things about this documentary is that those interviewed took part in the wrongdoing themselves,” says Tony Ortega, a longtime Scientology critic who contributed to the film. “They’re speaking out, revealing everything Scientology tried to bury.”
Apparently, this new movie will give us a true look into this secretive organization, shedding light on things their members (including Tom) won’t be happy to have revealed.
Since Katie’s break from Tom and the cult, she’s being called a ‘unintentional heroine’ giving a voice and hope to other members who are feeling trapped.
“They can’t silence us anymore,” Tony tells In Touch. “They can’t control all of us. It’s over.”

TELL US – WILL YOU WATCH THIS “INSIDER” MOVIE?
We will be sure to use a lot of “alleges” in this story as it appears Tom Cruise is suing mad!
So is he suing Scientology for allegedly ruining his life? No! Or better yet is he suing himself for his alleged rumored homosexual desires which has allegedly ruined his marriages to three women? Of course not!
Rather he is suing Life & Style and In Touch Weekly magazines for claiming he abandoned his daughter Suri Cruise. Yes, of all the negative, folks and we mean negative, stories that have been put out about Tom, 50, in the past few months, he is choosing to sue for claims he has abandoned his daughter.
TMZ broke the lawsuit story that Tom is suing for $50 million plus punitive damages for defamation and invasion of privacy. In Touch and Life & Style are sister magazines are owned by the same publishing company Bauer Publishing.
Tom’s lawyer, Bert Fields states: “Tom is a caring father who dearly loves Suri. She’s a vital part of his life and always will be. To say he has ‘abandoned’ her is a vicious lie. To say it in lurid headlines with a tearful picture of Suri is reprehensible.”
Bert adds: “Tom doesn’t go around suing people. He’s not a litigious guy. But when these sleaze peddlers try to make money with disgusting lies about his relationship with his child, you bet he’s going to sue.”
Months ago, Tom also threatened to sue the National Enquirer for a very unflattering story they did about him.
However, Tom will more than likely have a hard time winning this case as he hasn’t been photographed or seen with 6-year-old daughter Suri in 3 months now. Yes, 3 months. Apparently, he’s been very busy filming a new movie in London, though the rumor and speculation is that he might have been allegedly forced to allegedly cut ties with Suri who is no longer a Scientology by Scientologists.
This is all ALLEGEDLY of course!
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LAWSUIT? DOES TOM HAVE A CASE?
Looks like Tom Cruise is feeling the effects of his years with the alien worshippers scientologists. A source close to Cruise claims that Tom may be thinking of leaving Scientology once and for all, in a bid to win back ex-wife Katie Holmes.
“Now he’s lost the most precious thing in his life, he sees that his Scientology beliefs may not have hurt his box office but have ended not one but two marriages. It was a terrifying and rude awakening for Tom when Katie served him with divorce papers. He’s used to feeling undefeatable and untouchable. When he lost Katie he felt a failure,” the source told The People newspaper.
Tom first entered Scientology back in 1990 when he was married to Mimi Rogers. Cruise then went on to marry Nicole Kidman and sources claim that his religion played a role in their surprising divorce back in 2001.
“He has lost Nicole and now his wife and daughter. He has always used the Scientology techniques but he has now realized they don’t work in marriage,” the source added.
Would Katie be crazy forgiving enough to go back to Tom though? According to the source, she may just be: “If Tom truly leaves, Katie would reconsider. She was in love with Tom, he was her childhood crush, it took a lot of strength to break free. But now she has peace of mind but no love.”
You have to wonder if Tom could truly leave the cult he’s been a part of for so long. Or if they would even let him leave … ya know what they say- once you go alien you can’t go back …

Has Tom Cruise finally stopped drinking the extraterrestrial Kool-Aid??
An article in Star magazine, set to hit newsstands this coming Friday, is claiming that Cruise, 50, may be ready to move away from the Scientology cult church he’s been so adamantly involved with over the last several years.
“Tom hasn’t admitted that he’s definitely leaving Scientology for good,” an insider said. “But he’s distanced himself from those in the church and has been hanging out with good friends who aren’t part of the religion.”
In other words non-immortal beings.
Apparently Cruise has been contemplating how his role as one of Scientology’s most well-known supporters has affected his relationships. (Um, very badly Tom.) Rumors still circulate that the church played a role in his romances, though the actor’s reps deny that allegation.
Tom has also been concerned about what role the “religion” may have played in the relationship between him and daughter Suri, Tom’s only biological child, down the road. While Tom’s ex-wife Katie Holmes has custody of their daughter, Tom has been a loving father to Suri and seems to want to continue being a big part of her life.
“Tom’s been leaning on friends who have different perspectives, getting advice on moving on from Katie as well as on everything he’s been going through with Scientology,” the insider said. “He’s finally seeing that being such an advocate for Scientology hasn’t served him as well as he’d hoped –he’s gone through three divorces, and his public perception has sunk to an all-time low.”
Though not with the alien population according to a little green person from the church of Scientology that visited me recently … Oh wait that was only a very scary dream. *Phew!*
Tell Us- Do you think Tom Cruise will leave Scientology?
Where is Tom Cruise?
That’s what Suri wants to know. Apparently the last time the sweet six year old saw her daddy was back on August 4th, when the duo was snapped during a photo op at Disney World. Making it over 40 days since the actor saw his little girl.
Cruise didn’t even bother showing up to Suri’s first day of school at private NYC school Avenues. A family friend told In Touch magazine, “He has the means. He could have flown to NYC for one day to see Suri off to school. It was selfish. He was out having a good time.”
Tom didn’t even bother trying to gain custody of his daughter from his wife of five years, Katie Holmes, after she announced her divorce plans, unbeknown to him. Instead, just a few days before the first day of school, he was seen at a pub, “laughing and talking a lot to everyone like he didn’t have a care in the world,” according to an onlooker who spoke to In Touch.
Attorneys have been quoted as saying that Cruise has been busy working in London for the film, All You Need Is Kill.
Though it stands to reason that, if a man with Tom’s kind of money can’t bother to show up for the first day of school of his own daughter, something drastic MUST have been standing in his way. Perhaps the Mother Ship finally came to get him?? Maybe he had some more couches to jump on?
It must have been a pressing matter either way.
