Though their divorce has been finalized, Tom Cruise is still missing actress Katie Holmes and the couple’s daughter, Suri. Reports have surfaced yet again saying that Cruise is considering leaving Scientology with the hope that he’ll be able to reconcile with Holmes once his connection to the controversial religion is severed.
Rumors continue to surface that Cruise, an avowed Scientologist, is thinking of leaving the religion behind in a bid to get Katie Holmes back. Though Cruise, originally a Catholic, has been a Scientologist for over two decades, he has been distancing himself from the religion lately.
“Tom hasn’t admitted that he’s definitely leaving Scientology for good 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,” a source reportedly told Star Magazine (via Christian Post).
“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 alleged insider went on. “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.”
But is the 50-year-old actor just distancing himself from a religion that failed to help him save not one but two marriages? Or does he genuinely want Katie Holmes back?
“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,” said a source, via Daily Mail. “If Tom truly leaves [Scientology], 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.”
Do you think that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes could get back together?
