Katie Holmes wanted out of Scientology and wanted her daughter with Tom Cruise (Suri) to have nothing to do with it.
Long suspected, but something which Tom Cruise would never cop to… unless under oath.
Then, you at least have to hand it to him for finally telling the truth:
HAT TIP / The Stir Cafe:
You know how we’ve all always known that Katie Holmes most likely divorced Tom Cruise to get (daughter) Suri away from Scientology before she got old enough for that creepy, creepy, creepy version of 20 questions that asks people if they blew up planets?
But nobody ever confirmed it, exactly??
Well, Cruise let the truth slip while giving a deposition as part of his defamation suit against In Touch magazine:
Apparently lawyers asked him if Holmes divorced Cruise to “in part to protect Suri from Scientology,” and that’s when the Top Gun star flipped, saying, “Listen, I find that question offensive. I find it, those statements offensive. Like with any relationship, there are many different levels to it. You know, I, I find it very offensive. There is no need to protect my daughter from my religion.”
And THEN the lawyers asked, “And Ms. Holmes has never indicated in any way that was one of the reasons she left you? …To protect Suri from Scientology?”
And finally Cruise was like: “Did she say that? That was one of the assertions, yes.”
I must say I’m surprised Cruise didn’t deny that one with all the passion of a lovestruck couch jumper.
Scientology’s PR team is gonna have to start working overtime to reverse all this damage..
