Tom Cruise

Betrayed by Scientology?

5/9/2010 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tom Cruise was secretly videotaped as he spilled his guts in Scientology confessional sessions, and those tapes became fodder for Scientology cocktail party humor ... this according to a high-profile and former high-level member of Scientology.

Mark Rathbun says in his blog, he recorded Cruise during the confessional sessions and Scientology guru David Miscavige read the transcripts at parties, "joking and laughing" at them.

Rathbun says the video was "well-concealed" in the VIP auditing room, per orders of Miscavige. Rathbun says Miscavige ordered him to prepare transcripts of the sessions. Then, according to Rathbun, Miscavige would hold late night whiskey parties, reading the transcripts and laughing out loud.

The nature of Tom's alleged confessions were not disclosed.

For the record, L. Ron Hubbard has been dead for almost 25 years. He's on the giant spaceship recording blaxploitation film soundtracks with Chef.

Who cares about Tom Cruise? He's a jerk. He's not good looking in my opinion and he's pretty much a wuss. Thinks he's all that.
Think again, Tom.

Whatever    

Any "religion" that is cool with so-called confessions done openly and publicly (that may or may not be secretly taped) sounds like one that encourages feelings of shame. F-off, Scientology. Pull your head of your outer-space-as-religion asses.

OMG is this little pipsqueak still on tv. He has always looked like a little kid, so not manly or attractive. From anything anyone knows about him, he is a weirdo.

Unless you live under a rock these two things are plain as day...$cientology is a cult that blackmails people, and of course, Tommy Girl is gay...yawn...I need some real news here TMZ!!!

The guy who gave Rathbun the info just escaped from the Scientologists' Gold Base. This guy knows where a lot of the "bodies" are buried. They are really afraid of what info he has and what info can get out there.



Because of that, twenty people were sent to chase him and try to get him to come back. Among those people were Michael Doven (who was an assistant to Cruise and an associate producer on at least five of his movies), the musician Michael Duff, Michael Roberts (actor, formerly on Barretta).



Google "John Brousseau" to learn more.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_Base Geez, you have to google to find out what all this stuff is. The COS should be broken wide open...it sounds like it is full of abused, programmed robot slaves. Shame on Cruise and other celebs that attach their names to this "church".
#80 Sounds like damage control.

This is what scientology does--record confessions and then blackmail members with it for the rest of their lives. How do you think they keep members and get them to spread the word. I had an aunt who got into it briefly and they took all of her money and was very hard for her to get out. She had to leave town.

Let me guess... the subject of his confessions is that he's GAY. Big shocker. NOT.
