CLAIM: Tom Cruise And Katie Holmes Marriage Torn Apart By FBI Probe

Truth rating: 0

Tom Cruise


“FBI probe tearing Tom & Katie APART!” screams this week’s Star magazine cover story about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. You’ll recall, this is the same tabloid that recently wrongly claimed “Holmes had a “drug shocker”. According to the publication’s latest foray into journalism, a reported FBI investigation into the Church of Scientology has “sent Katie reeling and driven a wedge between her and Tom.”

Star claims Holmes panicked shortly after The New Yorker published an expose on Scientology, in which a former member alleged that Church resources were used to do special favors for Cruise. “Katie flew up to Vancouver, where Tom is filming Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol, right away to talk to Tom about it face-to-face,” says a so-calledsource.” “She’s concerned that this time, Tom’s passion for the Church could land them in legal trouble,” the supposed “source” adds. The magazine further reports that the expose has left the couple’s marriage “hanging by a thread.”

Here’s the real deal: A former member of the Church claimed that its funds were used to cater to Cruise, an allegation his lawyer and the Church itself denies. More importantly, a Cruise insider tells Gossip Cop there is absolutely “no truth” to the story. And a rep for Holmes assures us as well that “there is no wedge” between them. And contrary to the tabloid’s assertion, the marriage is not hanging by a thread. Week after week, magazines like Star claim Cruise and Holmes are breaking up, and week after week the couple remains happily married.
