Tom Cruise allegedly “blames Scientology” for divorce, wants Katie Holmes back

Katie Holmes

Here are some new photos of Katie Holmes at a meet and greet for her upcoming Broadway comedic play, Dead Accounts. She looks healthy and happy and ready to get back to the business of acting in front of a live audience. Furthermore, Katie seems very glad to be rid of Tom Cruise, who has been (curiously enough) amusing himself of late by receiving spankings from drag queens at Matt Damon’s London birthday party. Okay. OH, and I am also pleased to announce that we got confirmation over the weekend (from a source who would know) that Tom’s email address really does begin with “1makdaddy.” Hurrah! I am also eternally grateful to Katie for starting the ball rolling by including that ridiculous email handle in her divorce papers. She really does look good here, right? Such dewy skin and glowing eyes.

Now onto some more news about how Tom is so lonely and miserable and might allegedly be having a crisis of faith over Scientology. This new spin on the topic even alleges that Tom is more than ready to end his friendship with David Miscavige (thereby ending the most intense bromance in history). I’m not necessarily buying this story at all, but it’s still fun to consider:

He’s one of the most high profile supporters of controversial religion Scientology, but A-lister Tom Cruise could be leaving the church in a bid to win back his ex-wife. When the couple announced their separation earlier this year, the religion was widely acknowledged to be one of the main catalysts behind it.

Now sources close to the actor have revealed that he might be becoming disillusioned with the church that has helped to destroy his marriage. Speaking to The People, a friend has admitted that Tom might be questioning his involvement with the church:

“Now he’s lost the most precious thing in his life, he sees that his Scientology beliefs may not have hurt his box office [success] but have ended not one but two marriages,” said the source. Tom joined the church in 1990, during his first marriage to Mimi Rogers, but the religion was blamed for the breakdown of of his second marriage to Nicole Kidman.

Katie, who shocked her husband when she presented him with divorce papers in June, was said to have been concerned with Tom’s involvement with the religion and worried for their daughter, Suri. “He lost Nicole and now his wife and daughter. He has always used the Scientology techniques but he has now realised they don’t work in marriage,” said the source.

The Top Gun actor, who’s been spending a lot of time in London recently, shooting his new film Oblivion, has allegedly been cooling his close friendship with the church’s leader David Miscavige. “Tom and David have been attached at the hip but this relationship has deteriorated and that, along with the loss of Katie and Suri, is forcing his to question his role in the church. He hasn’t lost faith completely but he is blaming Scientology for what has happened,’” said the source.

[From Daily Mail]

I don’t believe for one hot moment that Tom would try to get Katie back after their divorce has been finalized. I mean, what’s the point of that? He allegedly lovebombed Katie from afar throughout their marriage, and it didn’t help matters. It’s not like he’d ever change his weird, overcompensating ways (that would be like asking him to give up his precious lifts), and even if he grew a pair of balls and left Scientology (which he won’t do), how the hell would he cope? Dude is an empty vessel, and he paid to be programmed in such a manner. I feel sorry for most civilian Scientologists, but the celebrity ones are there because they want to be there. They love getting their asses kissed and treasure the slave labor, and Tom is the king of such indulgences.

So no, Tom isn’t changing, and he isn’t planning upon leaving the CO$ — ever. He’s not going to try and get Katie back either. To put it simply, since he chose not to howl “You’ve lost that loving feeling outside her Katie’s Chelsea apartment, that means he accepted her decision. Sure, Tom’s probably worried about how he’ll find his next wife since everyone knows about how his horrific wife auditions really happened, but he at least knows better than to bother Katie now.

Here’s some photos of Tom out on the town in London on Friday night and not hanging out with Suri. Again.

    auditing auditions not going so well? too bad, there’s not a chance in hell of it happening, or at least I don’t think so..And I don’t think he’ll really hang around Suri again until she’s old enough for him to turn her against her mother. Probably early teens.

  2. Hautie says:

    Oh please.

    He is not leaving The Cult.

    But for sh*ts and giggles… what if he did. It would only be for self serving reasons.

    Like it finally dawned on him, he could sell more movie tickets, if he didn’t come off as a complete loon.

    But hey, give The Cult a little credit. For trying to float this “rumor” of Tom wanting Katie back. (I bet Katie laughed at it.)

    I guess that Cult is desperate to make him not look like such a loser.

    He has movie tickets to sell!!

    And a big fat donation to make to them!!

  3. gloaming says:

    I don’t believe this for a second. He regards himself as a Big Being now and she’s a degraded being.

    From Marty Rathbun’s new book.

    “Dave and me, we’re big beings. We are surrounded by DB’s (degraded beings). Dbs can’t help but try to destroy big beings. That’s just the way it is in this universe. You have to understand this. This is LRH, man. It’s the plight of the big being getting jumped on by all the degraded beings. You gotta be unreasonable to survive around a big being like me. You can’t be weak. You gotta be strong to protect the big being from all the degraded beings.”

    • SusieQ says:

      Yup, this is all pr spin by the cult – no way is he looking to get back with Katie. Get BACK at her maybe.

      I read that post by Tony Ortega and then went over to the Marty Rathbun site. He makes much worse allegations about Cruise’s behaviour towards his staff. I’m not going to say anything here, but Mr Cruise is NOT going to be too happy.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        SusieQ – That was my thought as well: Get back with her to get back AT her? Maybe. (A “hey, look at me, I gave up all…and really tried, but she just couldn’t get past it” type thing. He’s still trying to earn that bid for public sympathy and repair his image!)

        But I don’t think he’s capable of loving anyone as much as he loves himself; nor anything as much as he loves CO$.

      • TrustMeOnThis says:

        It isn’t very nice of me, but I’m secretly hoping TC will sue Marty. The pretrial discovery would be delicious! And NDAs do not apply to sworn testimony in court. Which is why it will probably never happen. To be fair, I certainly do not wish for more chaos for Naz – she has been through enough.

        BTW I finally made it to the Master! Fascinating film.

  4. Seagulls says:

    Katie really does look good since she got rid of her “theTom.” Tom was the largest thetan, after all.

  5. Jackie O says:

    looks like he has fillers in his face.

    no way is he leaving scientology. ever. he loves the ego stroking too much.

    • LAK says:

      What people fail to understand is that the ego stroking is par of the course for ALL A list celebrities. C0$ is religion based ego stroking but all of them get the same level of sycophncy. An ex-universal publicist wrote a book that was published last year that had a chapter per specific A listers, Tom Cruise being one of them. She barely touched the c0$ and instead wrote about the level of ego stroking these people expect and have come to expect. The only difference is that in a non-co$ situation, they are dealing with non-believers but still expect the same level of devotion. To give a different ie non-religious example….consider the book the devil wear prada. Book much more detailed than film. That was ghosted as fiction to get around a confidentiality agreement but the workers are that devoted, and expected to be that devoted, and no promise of spiritual reward involved!!!!!!

      Tom swopping out his c0$ loonies for regular people will not make a dent in his world. And since per Marty Rathburn’s book we now know that he is self auditor, he probably knows all he needs to know about c0$ so he can cope ‘outside’ the church. Much like Marty Rathburn is doing.

      • Miss T says:

        I think it would make a difference to Tom. I think he loves having a “church” kiss his ass, give him medals etc. It makes him feel special, as if he is some sort of prophet. Sure, he could pay people to do some of the things that CO$ does, but it wouldn’t be the same as having an entire religion worshipping him.

        I don’t think he’s leaving CO$ anytime soon.

  6. lucy2 says:

    If he quit CO$ he’d have nothing in his life – they’ve made sure of that. He’s not going anywhere.
    Also don’t believe he wants her back – I’d be surprised if he ever had any real feelings for her at all.

    • Ella says:


    • Raven says:

      I don’t think he’d know how to function without Sci. I don’t think he could hire staff to maintain a household or hire an assistant who could take care of his personal business. I haven’t been around him, but get the impression he’s somewhere on the autism spectrum, maybe Asperger’s. If he had a moment of clarity, he’d be smart to crawl back to his publicist, was it Pat, and beg her to take him back. Then dump Scientology and get her to help him set up everything. And do whatever she said. And just work, because I suspect that is where he’s happiest.

  7. MoxyLady007 says:

    No. He is a controlling narcissist who found the perfect controlling match in Scientology. There is no coming back from having to live in constant fear and worry and needing to be smuggled burner phones. So he can blame anything and everything besides himself – it’s was narcissists do- but the problem here is him. Always has been. Scientology isn’t helping matters by any means. It’s a cult. But in their marriage, Tiny Tom was the biggest problem.
    Honestly it’s hard enough leaving someone like that. To leave him AND a murderous cult? Amazing. Go Katie!

  8. Lady_Luck says:

    I actually feel for him right now. I know a lot of people enjoy taking the p*** out of him, but he must be going through hell. I think he’s a nice person when all is said and done. Also, I think perhaps this might have been the one thing which might have made him rethink the whole C.O.S. It just might be true.

  9. Kim says:

    HELL will freeze over before he leaves COS.I guess he can’t book a flight to NYC to visit Suriname for the weekend. Oh yeah I forgot he owns private jet.Well I hear jet fuel is very expensive.

    • Tilly says:

      Perhaps, as part of their divorce decree, Tom is required to give Suri (& by default Katie) some space.

      • swack says:

        Both sides have said that Tom has generous visitation rights so I don’t think he has to give Suri space. I believe his workaholic ways was a big part in the break up. He was never home and was an absentee father and husband (doesn’t mean he doesn’t love Suri). Unless he is willing to take time off from work (and he doesn’t have to work continuously), he will probably never have a real relationship with anyone.

    • SusieQ says:

      Kim, Tom is helping to save the planet! He’s watching his carbon footprint, THAT’S why he won’t fly to see Suri!! LOL!!

      (Until he has a new movie to promote)

    • haha says:

      Visiting Suriname is nice…u should all do that..Its ALWAYS tropical warm!no snow, no cold….no natural disasters,NEVER.Sometimes some wind, and long rains…Its a VERY blessed country.
      Im from there.

  10. La Calabaza says:

    Wow! Katie looks amazing! Her hair is to die for. She looks like she is in her 20th now. Leaving Tom has been her best beauty tip.

    On the other hand, Tom is still a creep.

  11. Kim says:

    I hate this phone I meant Suri not Suriname

  12. Suzie says:

    I wonder if Tom will go for another naive, much younger female he can mold and shape and bend and tweak, or will they all be there, all ages, queuing up, just to be seen on his arm? I think the age difference was probably the final straw for Katy. She didn’t need Tom Cruise’s money and all that promises to offer. If he’s got sense he’ll team up with an older, ex scientologist with no illusions or delusions about the cult.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Tom needs the upper hand in his marriages. Both Kidman and Holmes were of the sorta famous mold when they met Tom. He doesn’t want a woman his own age who can hold her own. He wants a puppet.

  13. Christine says:

    Katie’s face is dewy bec of the enormous amount of Botox she has injected into it. She looks good, but lets not pretend it’s natural.

    • Elizabeth says:

      If she’s doing botox (not saying she isn’t), then it looks a hell of a lot better than most other actors I see with botox. Let’s hope she tapers off before it goes too far.

    • SusieQ says:

      I don’t know, looking at that last close up picture, I see forehead lines and lines around her eyes. Her make up has good coverage and hides them well.

      I think she looks great and her hair is beautiful, it’s so shiny and healthy.

      • Azurea says:

        Okay, let’s get it straight: Botox does nothing for the skin. It is simply a modified form of a toxin which paralyzes the muscles. Sheesh.

    • Just Me says:

      She probably has fillers and has had several chemical peels or laser treatments.

    • Blondey says:

      Why not natural? She’s only 33. The only wrinkles I have are in the inner corners of my eyes and I’m 41.

    • G says:

      Yo hater it’s called a microderm abrasion and it’s AWESOME! She’s still young and doesn’t need fillers. Quit hating she’s glowing and looks fabulous! It’s called having a good esthitician so look into it and you too can glow and look fabulous.

  14. Sabrine says:

    She’d never take him back. It’s not just Scientology. Workaholics make lousy husbands and are, just as now, absent fathers.

    She looks fantastic, doubt she’s had any work done, just good makeup, and her new life has made her appear younger and much happier.

  15. Boo says:

    Katie looks really good, but I wish she’d smile more evenly (genuinely?) with her whole mouth rather than that smirky, right-side smile thing she does.

  16. Cathy says:

    Katie does look alot happier on her own. More power to her.

  17. dorothy says:

    Oh please, no way Tommy Boy is leaving the cult. He’ not that smart.

  18. Jayna says:

    Yeah, that crooked side smile is not attractive. I don’t remember her having that when she was young. I just realized not only did she have her nose done, but she had something done to her eyes. Her eyes used to droop down on the sides..

    COS wasn’t the only factor in their breakup. Tom’s nonstop career I have a feeling played just as big a part.

  19. ladybert62 says:

    She needs a decent haircut – get it shaped and shorter to frame her face and dont wear it behind the ears.

    He will never leave COS – ever. He gets more emotional, psychological support from it than from anything else in the world. He will never leave it.

  20. Amy C says:

    I am tired of his games. I think he want something to control that he probably what he miss. May be Robo round 2 on the air? I doubt it.
    Too bad for her she is not as interesting as she was at the begining of the divorce then again she is never been big or had a lot following before him, better during with but now she is going back to her old times in a way.

  21. Mayday says:


    • LeslieM says:

      I would love for this story to be true! I would love to see tons of interviews with him discrediting Scientology. They probably have so much on him he can’t get out.

  22. Memphis says:

    I hoped Tom would leave the cult when Katie came to her senses and left him, but I really don’t think it will ever happen.

    He has to much invested in Sci at this point. Hell, his whole family (with the exception of Suri) is in this cult. No way he is leaving all that behind.

    It would be nice if he did though.

  23. Chell says:

    She looks healthy & happy, good for her! And regarding all the comments on her crooked smile…she suffered from Bell’s palsy, she can’t help it!

  24. Jaded says:

    Tom is a black hole of narcissism. Co$ fills that hole with Miscavige’s hero-worship and the constant petting and stroking from Co$ minions. Where would he get that kind of worship in the real world?

    Unfortunately Tom is clearly too stupid to realize that all that adulation is
    Miscavige’s way to keep money rolling into Co$ coffers and himself at the top of the organization in a position of total power and greed.

    • sandra says:

      Jaded….what you said plus a million!

      The guy is too addicted to CO$ to even think about leaving.

      He is scary.

    • candigirl says:

      ITA! The smug self-centeredness just reeks from these photos of Tom Thumb.
      Suri is lucky she is far away from him, it’s only sad she has to listen to his daily brain washings via phone calls. It’s also interesting that he thinks of himself as a “big being” and everyone around him as “degraded beings.” Congratulations Tom, you’ve finally turned into your own father, an abusive jerk. Thank you Celebitchy for keeping the spotlight on this horrible deadly cult.

  25. TG says:

    I think getting his a** handed to him is what is shaking him. When has tiny tom ever not been the one doing the firing? I love it that katie got the better of him. Someone said on one of the very first divorce postings about the psychology behind the Co$ techniques and how to be human and that was so interesting. I wish I could recall it all but it was the basics of feeling emotions whether they be anger, hate, love, happiness, whatever that they are important and that is how we learn from experience but if you shut all that down like the co$ freaks do than you aren’t human you are a robot. It was a really neat comment and worth thinking about.

  26. vvy says:

    Tom hasn’t had the opportunity to find himself…his ‘real’ self because the CO$ brainwashed it all out of him. No wonder he’s always terrified to be alone…there’s no one home. Scary. He needs intense deep therapy and he needs it now. I think this is all a desperate media plant to make him look more sympathetic and likeable to the public. It’s all spin. It always is if it comes from a mainstream media mag.

  27. Ruth says:

    She finally looks alive.

  28. Anon says:

    Well, that is the beginning of wisdom…

  29. the original bellaluna says:

    There’s a sparkle in her eyes again!

    Agree that he won’t leave CO$: He (and they) are just trying another tack at damage control. It’s all about the public image with both him and the cult.

    And as much as it grates them both, both took a big hit with the timing of the divorce (escape) and those TV specials about CO$ and that book(s?) that came out, all in close succession.

    He’s still playing the “poor, poor pitiful me” card. Stuff it, Tom!

  30. G says:

    It certainly is possible that a person can experience an emotional or psychological break that could precipitate a break from a cult.

    In his case, when you add the extra dimension of his long-standing celebrity, that’s going to hurt. But there are lots of examples of long term high level members who have done the same.

    I hope this is true. I don’t however, see Katie getting back with him.

  31. carol says:

    interesting. 1st thought – this can’t be true. (?)

  32. carol says:

    Katies does look alive. not depraved (?)

  33. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Katie can’t dress for sh*t, but facially and hair wise she looks stunning in these photos. Beautiful.

  34. Turtle Dove says:

    Katie looks beautiful. Her skin and hair are gorgeous. Divorce did this woman a world of good.

  35. India says:

    Get over it Tom. It’s never gonna happen.

  36. Moana says:

    The Thetans are flying out of the closet, and he can’t think of any other way to stop the freefall. He’s a n-u-t with or without Scientology. A gay nut with a narcissistic little man complex. And he’s aging. Boo hoo, Tiny.

  37. Vesper says:

    If Katie and Suri really were the most “precious thing in his life”, Tom would be spending more time with Suri instead of being an absentee father.

    I think it’s clear by his actions since the divorce that his priorities remain the same. It always has been and always will be about him.

  38. laura says:

    Tudo isso é propaganda para levantar a imagem desgastada. O real motivo do divórcio foi o contrato que ela não quis renovar. Inocente nesta história só Suri. Dois oportunistas e narcisistas. Porém, lindos de morrer.

  39. CF98 says:

    Yeah this is a good laugh it would’ve made more sense if this was rumored before the divorce was final.

  40. deehunny says:

    in other tom news his lifts are looking nice in the last pic. the mud really shows how tall they are!

  41. Frobeast says:

    So…am I the only one rooting for him to continue not seeing Suri. I see so many articles making a big deal about the amount of time they are apart (and I get why, he says he’s a devoted father, etc), but I hope it just goes on indefinitely. It’s not like he is an awesome father figure.

  42. dana says:

    I don’t buy Cruise would never leave because that CO$ kisses his but. Cruise is a major hollywood star, and people would say yes and kiss his but even if he wasn’t a Scientologist anymore.

    Instead, he can’t really leave without Scientologist releasing any piece of dirt they had on Cruise to embarass and destroy the guy.

    There’s no way Scientologists would ever let him go otherwise- they secretly recorded his auditing sessions where Cruise spoke out his deepest, darkest secrets.

  43. Francesca says:

    He is a creep of the highest order.

  44. Moreaces says:

    She does look more stress free and happy than she has in a long time, Good luck Katie.
