Tom Cruise Might Be Leaving Scientology ... For Love

tom cruise suriPlease let these exciting rumors be true! A source is saying that Tom Cruise may be leaving Scientology to save his relationship with his daughter. Will he finally walk away from this famously powerful organization for the sake of Suri? We hope so!


The source tells Star magazine that it was a phone call with 9-year-old Suri that pushed Cruise to consider leaving Scientology. His daughter has been living with Katie Holmes, who retained custody after the divorce. They've stayed in touch over the phone, the source says, but Cruise is becoming more aware of how much he's missing from his daughter's life.

She was going on and on about her ballet class and how much she loves it. That's when Tom realized he's never seen her perform ballet and he started to tear up. It hit him that she's growing up before his eyes and he's not there to witness most of it. They talk on the phone and video chat, but it's not the same.

That's heartbreaking! We all know how quickly children grow up. If that's true, the past couple years must have been painful for both Cruise and Suri.

The source also says the church has pressured Cruise to distance himself from his daughter because he's not raising her in the church, and because she's being raised by what they call a "supressive" person, Katie Holmes. Cruise has admitted himself in a court deposition that Holmes left him partly to protect Suri from Scientology.

We're crossing our fingers that this latest bit of gossip is true and that Cruise really is going to choose his daughter over Scientology. It may sound like a no-brainer to most of us, but leaving that church has been incredibly difficult for other members. And I would expect it would be especially hard for a high-profile member like Cruise. They're not going to let him go easily! But he has the best motivation he could possibly have. 

Do you think Cruise will leave Scientology?
