Actress Leah Remini quit Scientology in 2013 and has since written an expose on her life within the controversial church, with part of the book shedding light on Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ life as practicing Scientologists.
In a particularly shocking extract of ‘Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology’, the 45-year-old claims that the former couple had their pre-wedding dinner constantly interrupted by baby cries, but they didn’t seem at all concerned by the wailing.
Leah then states that after five minutes of hearing the sobbing baby she decided to investigate and followed the noise to a bathroom, where she found Tom’s sister, his assistant, and another woman staring at Tom and Katie’s then-seven-month-old daughter, Suri, who was crying on the floor.
Leah claims that the three women were looking at Suri “as if she was L. Rob Hubbard incarnate”, but eventually she managed to convince them to pick the baby up and feed her.
The book also claims that Tom’s two eldest children, Isabella and Connor, had been taught to keep a distance from their mother, Nicole Kidman, because she is a ‘suppressive person’, or a ‘SP’, according to the church.
Recalling a time when she asked them if they saw their mother often, Leah claims Isabella responded: “Not if I have a choice. Our mum is a f*cking SP.”
Tom and Katie have since split, and neither has not commented on Leah’s claims but the Church has branded them “ridiculous and stupid”.
