It seems like only yesterday that Tom Cruise was jumping up and down like a gleeful child on Oprah Winfrey’s couch declaring his love for the Dawson’s Creek star, Katie Holmes. Now their six year marriage is ending in divorce.
Amongst the popular reasons for celebrity divorces, this one is a little out of the ordinary, as it seems that the catalyst for the divorce was Cruise’s high profile relationship with the Church of Scientology.
The Church of Scientology is continuously at the centre of media speculation and this week, it hits the news once again as claims arise that Holmes is trying to ensure that daughter, Suri, 6, stays away from the much disparaged religion.
Boasting millions of members, zealous adherents pay masses of money -signing a billion year contract- to learn about the religion which claims that humans are, in fact, extra terrestrials.
