Actress Leah Remini, who was a former Scientologist, is making claims that Tom Cruise was well aware of the abuses that occur within the church.
According to Fox News:
Leah Remini claimed Tom Cruise was aware of the abuses that occur inside the Church of Scientology, going as far to say that he’s “been part of it.”
Remini, 48, told the Daily Beast that Cruise, one of the church’s highest ranking members, received special treatment by Scientologists. The “King of Queens” star was a member of the church but left in 2013. She is now an outspoken opponent of Scientology and speaks with former members of the church in her Emmy Award-winning series “Scientology and the Aftermath.”
“Scientologists are told that Tom Cruise is saving the world single-handedly, so he is considered a deity within Scientology. He is second to David Miscavige—the savior of the free world. Tom is even called ‘Mister Cruise’ by staff members,” she told the Daily Beast.
The “Kevin Can Wait” star claimed Scientologists make sure Cruise does not see materials with “anything disparaging about Scientology.”
The actress also claimed that Cruise was ordered to punish a high ranking member of the church.
