Scientology ‘bending rules’ for Tom Cruise to meet Suri
Washington: Tom Cruise, who has barely been able to meet his daughter Suri after his divorce with Katie Holmes, is getting special treatment from the strict heads of Scientology to have contact with her, it has been revealed.
The 50-year-old actor has recently been busy fulfilling his filming commitments.
“They have already bent the rules for Tom,” Radar Online quoted the former president of the celebrity centre, Nancy Many, as saying.
“If Tom was any other Scientologist, including lesser celebrities, he would not be allowed to continue seeing and maintaining communication with Katie or Suri, because they are no longer in Scientology. So far, because of who he is, Cruise has spent time with Suri, which has already upset the parents and children of existing Scientologists who can’t talk to their loved ones.
“If he is supposed to be a Scientologist, why don’t the rules for every other member apply to him? When every other person that I have known of leaves Scientology, which Katie did without speaking of it directly, they are instantly shunned,” she said.
She said that by rejoining a Catholic Church right afterwards, the ‘Dawson’s Creek’ star made a very public statement of rejection of the controversial religion.
Apart from a fun-filled trip to Disneyland last June, Cruise has spent far less time than usual with Suri over recent months, and even missed her first day of school on September 11 because he was filming in London.
However, Many is surprised that Cruise is allowed to see Suri at all.
