Tom Cruise Leaving Scientology June 2016


Tom Cruise is NOT leaving Scientology, despite a new tabloid cover story falsely claiming he’s abandoning the church for a new relationship. Gossip Cop can debunk the story.

The new issue of OK! hit newsstands on Wednesday blaring, “Tom Leaving Scientology For Love!” The accompanying story declares, “The actor is so smitten with Annabelle Wallis, he could leave Scientology for her.” The magazine claims the two have hit it off while filming The Mummy, and quotes a so-called “insider” as saying, “She told him she couldn’t make a commitment to him so long as he was a practicing Scientologist.”

“Annabelle really likes Tom, and she can see herself falling for him big-time. But not while he’s a Scientologist. She has no interest in converting,” says the supposed source. And so, the outlet alleges “she’s inspired Tom to rethink his extreme religious beliefs,” and now he’s “considering leaving the church.”

The alleged tipster goes on to claim, “Tom has always done what the church asked, but he’s finally realizing what a negative impact that’s had on his relationships.” The snitch further adds, “The buzz in Tom’s circle is that he’s ready to walk.” And OK! even claims Cruise and Wallis “shared a dinner date” with none other than Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx.

Of course, OK! has been running untrue cover stories about Holmes and Foxx on weddings and babies for the better part of the last year. This new one on Cruise, Wallis, and Scientology is equally inaccurate. The actor remains committed to Scientology… while the tabloid stays committed to spreading fiction over fact.
