Recently, Leah Remini came out with some pretty wild claims about Scientology and Tom Cruise. It turns out Cruise is not very happy about what Remini had to say in her recent interview and book. US Magazine shared that a source close to Tom Cruise is now speaking out about it, and Cruise is not happy. Leah left Scientology and since then she has been revealing a lot about the organization and the people who are part of it.
In her book, Leah talks about a time when Tom Cruise was trying to bake cookies and started yelling at his assistants because the ingredients were not in front of him. It turns out there was pre-packaged cookie dough right in front of him, but Cruise must have not noticed it. The insider says that Cruise thinks this book is a “major betrayal.”
Another story that Leah Remini told about Tom Cruise is all about how Cruise and Katie Holmes thought she was inappropriate at their wedding. They turned her into the church and Leah ended up getting sent to Florida by the church. They sent her there for what they call “reprogramming.” This cost Leah $300,000, and she had to send a note to Katie and apologize for the way she acted at the wedding. The source close to Tom Cruise shared how he feels about it all.
“Leah is what the church calls a ‘suppressive person,’ so she’s evil in his mind. He wipes the memory of any SP out of his life. He’s letting the Scientology people discredit her.”
So far the church is denying the claims that Leah Remini has made against them. They even put up a statement on their website about it all.
“Sadly, bitterness and anger are common threads through Ms. Remini’s life. Rather than take responsibility for self-inflicted problems, she is quick to blame others.”
EW recently shared some of the craziest things that Leah Remini admitted in her new tell-all book Troublemaker. While in the church, Leah Remini donated $3 million and says she spent around $2 million on training through the church. At one time, the church had Leah pay them back for food she had stolen years ago, and they rounded it to $40,000. After Leah donated $1 million to the church, this was when she was invited into Tom Cruise’s circle. She even shared about a time that they spent time together at Jada Pinkett Smith’s house where Cruise said he wanted to play hide-and-seek.
“At first I thought he was joking. But no, he literally wanted to play hide-and-seek with a bunch of grown-ups in what was probably close to a 7,000-square-foot house on almost three full acres of secluded land.”
Leah Remini actually tried to avoid playing the game with him by saying that she had on high heels and couldn’t play. Tom Cruise then reportedly tagged her and told her that she was “it” and ran to hide. It was also shared that when Tom Cruise’s long-time assistant quit, things were a bit strange. Leah shared about it all
“Someone decided that she had done something wrong, and she had to undergo a sec-check (a form of interrogation) that she says cost her so much that she lost her house. Instead of viewing this…. as cruel injustice, she felt a huge sense of accomplishment when she finished her sec-check. She took pride in the fact that she left Tom in good standing with the church.”
So far, Tom Cruise is not speaking out at all on his thoughts about what Leah Remini had to say about him and the church. Cruise is normally a very private guy, so it would be shocking if he says anything at all. Are you shocked about what all Leah Remini has to say? Sound off in the comments section below.
