Was It Scientology Or Did Tom Cruise Really Turn His Children Against Nicole Kidman? [PHOTOS]
A new and shocking allegation was recently reported against the "Mission Impossible" star Tom Cruise claiming that the Church of Scientology has turned the adopted children of Tom Cruise and Australian actress Nicole Kidman, Isabella and Connor, against their mother after their 2001 divorce.
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman are proud parents to Isabella and Connor during their marriage but it was the actor who retained full custody of the children upon their divorce. Now, a controversial article in the United States has claimed that it was the religion of the Hollywood superstar that estranged the children from their mother.
According to the new report in Vanity Fair magazine, Nicole Kidman was pushed out of the relationship by Tom Cruise.
"The central problem in the marriage was Nicole did not want to deal with Scientology," former Scientologist Marty Rathbun told Vanity Fair. Another Scientologist named John Brousseau backed up the claim."They rejected Nicole, they'd been instructed. The Scientology world hated Nicole," Brousseau revealed.
The article also claimed that the children were told that the "Moulin Rouge" actress was a sociopath. According to a source, it was told to Isabella and Connor over and over again that their mother was a sociopath and after some time, the children started to believe it.
In 2007, Nicole Kidman admitted that she did not have a good relationship with her children. Earlier this year, Isabella Cruise revealed in an interview with New Idea magazine that the relationship has now improved.
"I love mom. She's my mom. She's great. I see her sometimes in Nashville and I speak to her," Isabella said. Nicole Kidman is currently married to musician Keith Urban since the actress' split from Tom Cruise and she has now two biological children with Urban.
Accounts of Tom Cruise's personal life regarding his devotion to the Scientology religion have been strenuously denied by the actor. Recent accusations about his personal life and romantic connections have been slammed by his legal team as tired old lies.
"Vanity Fair's story is essentially a rehash of tired old lies previously run in the supermarket tabloids, quoting the same bogus sources," Bert Fields, Tom Cruise's lawyer, stated. "It's long, boring and false," Fields added.
