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.

I can't believe anyone is falling for this. Scobbie is a media hound, playing out her personal vendetta for her minute of fame at the expense of people who actually give a damn.

Mark...I agree.

Arrogant, judgemental Tom Cruise deserves to be taped and played for everyone's amusement in this so called "Church". This fraudulent place just brainwashes, takes a ton of money from celebrities and laughs at them while their doing it.

Scientology ruins people's lives, manipulates people of normal financial means to take out one paid course after another, until they have gotten into so much debt - sometimes thousands of $, that some have tragically committed suicide over it - that is a FACT! check out some of the Scientology docu films on youtube. It is a highly manipulative organisation that taps into people's vulnerability's and shakes them down for their money - if they have or not to give. Whether or not people have the financial means to pay these con artists or not - it is their money and their lives, and Scientology wants both money and their blood! Every cloud has a silver lining and hopefully people will start to see these people for what they are.

What has happened to Tom Cruise was cruel and nasty. It doesn't matter that he may have the money to give them, it is his money, the guy has feelings - Tom Cruise is actually a kind and generous guy (because I know someone who once worked for hi), but has been vulnerable and brain washed by these people.

I know some of you people laugh about him and some of the others celebrities caught up with it, but you should really feel bad for them, they may be "celebrities" but they are essentially only "people" like you and I.

The "church" of $cientology will protect their celebrities, no matter what. They already lie to them, and all "in", constantly--so what's new here? "Oh Tommy---You KNOW *we* wouldn't do ~that~.

Delusion runs high within this group. It takes most years to face the truth: Those that run it, are liars and cons: PERIOD.
Tory/Magoo---30 years "in", escaped OUT 10 years ago---free at LAST!

When are people going to wake up and realize that scientology is not a religion; it's a business that's pretending to be a church. Its main goal is money and power. I have no respect for anyone who is hoodwinked by these con artists. People have died for scientology. Very scary. They need to be investigated by the feds and taxed out their backsides from now until the end of time.
