Scientology Members Accused Of Turning Nicole Kidman’s Children Against Her [PHOTOS]
Divorce has never been really easy for a family to go through such ordeal especially with the children.
However, it appears that the adopted children of "Mission Impossible" actor Tom Cruise and Australian actress Nicole Kidman may have had a little bit harder situation than most children during their parents divorce in 2001. Scientology members are reportedly being accused of planting ideas in Connor and Isabella Cruise's heads in order to reject their mother Nicole Kidman.
It took only one allegation to change their lives. According to the cover story by Maureen Orth in the Vanity Fair magazine, members of the Church of Scientology turned both children against their mother Nicole Kidman after Tom Cruise ended their 11-year marriage back in 2001.
"The central problem in the marriage was Nicole did not want to deal with Scientology," former high-ranking Scientologist Marty Rathbun revealed to the magazine.
At the time of their parents divorce, Isabella was 8 years old and Connor was 6. In the magazine cover story, members of the Church of Scientology were accused of planting ideas to the children against their mother. It has been claimed that the "Moulin Rouge" actress became a suppressive person and someone that should be avoided.
"They rejected Nicole. They've been instructed," said John Brousseau, a former Scientologist for 32 years. Brousseau is also the brother-in-law of David Miscavige, head of the Church of Scientology, and he was even Tom Cruise's best man in his wedding to actress Katie Holmes in 2006.
Meanwhile, Rathbun and Brousseau further revealed to the magazine that Connor and Isabella were both home-schooled and have allegedly spent time attending what Scientologists call auditing sessions with their movie star father Tom Cruise and the children were taught to recognize an S.P.
"They took a course, P.T.S./S.P., Potential Trouble Source/Suppressive Person, for persons connected in their lives who are an S.P.," Brousseau revealed. "Bella and Connor whispered to me, 'J.B., Nicole is an S.P.! Our mom's an S.P. We hate going and seeing her,'" Brousseau further shared.
In this controversial story, it has also been claimed that Nicole Kidman was really rejected within the Church that members were even told to evade her movies.
"The Scientology world hated Nicole," Brousseau, who left the Church two years ago revealed. "People in Sea Org were mandated to see every freaking Tom Cruise movie that came out. But if you ever mentioned seeing a movie that stars Nicole, oh my God, you'd hear about it," Brousseau added.
On the other hand, the Church of Scientology said in a statement released that the Vanity Fairy story is gibberish.
