Leah Remini's unpublished chapter about Tom Cruise

Remini wrote a chapter about Cruise for her book 'Troublemaker' but her publisher thought everyone would only focus on him so they didn't include it in the book. Now Remini believes Tom Cruise helped cancel her latest show “Scientology: Black Ops” because it revealed some info about him so she decided to release said chapter @Tony Ortega's website:

“I think it’s time for people to start waking up to the real facts here. Tom has for years manipulated his image to be the good guy, and although I believe there was a time when Tom was a decent and kindhearted person, he has morphed himself into David Miscavige and is completely dedicated to Scientology’s mission to ‘Clear’ planet Earth — which means making 80 percent of the world’s population into Scientologists,” Leah says.

“Tom has for years used Scientology and its staff to do his dirty work. Tom has used Scientology and its thugs in suits, like Tommy Davis, to break up with his former Scientologist girlfriend. He used Tommy’s ex-wife Jessica to give his girlfriend sex advice on how Tom likes it. Davis has used confidential Scientology counseling confessions to break up two Scientologists so Tom could date one of them, used confidential Scientology counseling sessions to bring a wedge between Tom and his wife Nicole because Nicole didn’t want to do Scientology anymore. And David Miscavige, through Marty Rathbun, got rid of Nicole to get Tom closer to Scientology. Tom has for years used his church to torture his employees by sending them in for interrogations at their expense, causing a woman I know to go bankrupt simply because the hours she worked for Tom made it impossible for her to raise her family. She was interrogated and punished by her church for years, causing her to lose her home. These are some of the things Tom has done that never get talked about, and I think it’s time to change that.”

Good for her for continuing to expose him and his cult. Tammy has gotten away with too much for way too long.

Random: Remember when Cruise was considered one of the hottest men in Hollywood? It's as strange as remembering that Lindsay Lohan was once considered to have had "potential".

The medal:

With Pat Kingsley out of the way and safely silenced, now the Sea Org was in charge of Tom’s production company and its employees. Staff who didn’t meet expectations could now expect to be sent to the church for “correction” for any false move. Any errors at all were dealt with at the church. Which is illegal, by the way. And employees had to pay for these corrections, costing $500 to $900 an hour.

Andrea and Michael Doven were put through so many expensive sec checks [interrogations], that they lost their home. They were living in a trailer in Malibu. Tom, though, told Michael to donate $50,000 to the IAS to make up the damage he had done while working for him. This almost caused a divorce. The staff were required to work 14 plus hours a day. No overtime, all salaried employees.

Slowly but surely, all non-Scientologists were replaced with Scientologists and Sea Org members around Tom, whether they were qualified or not.

Despite the unreasonable hours and workload, any infraction would be dealt with harshly. When Andrea got pregnant after 17 years of working for Tom, his camp considered it an act of an enemy. Anything other than servicing Tom Cruise was considered a liability. And having a baby was a distraction to Tom.

One employee’s parent had become terminally ill and was not allowed to leave to take that parent for treatment. It was “not approved,” Shawna said.

by Anonymousreply 208/01/2020

Leah says the stories she’s heard from former Tom Cruise employees follow a repeated pattern. “I think it’s important to show a history of Cruise using Tommy Davis and his Scientology power to abuse and bully people,” Leah says. “They used the information of Nicole’s confessional folders. They went into the folder of Nazanin’s boyfriend to find his confidential ‘trangressions’ to feed to Naz and break them up so Tom could have her. When the member of the team started making noises about Tom not being able to do what they had been hired for, they were pulled in for interrogations. ‘Do you have overts towards Tom?’ they were asked. It’s a history, and it’s a pattern. It’s all about keeping people silent about Tom, and they’re using the money and power of Scientology to silence people, like they did with the Australian news program.”

One way that Cruise silences people is through draconian non-disclosure contracts that he requires people in his life to sign, including the employees at Odin Productions. We obtained a copy of an Odin employment contract, which included a section about how much his employees could expect to pay if they dare to speak out about him.

A list of liquidated damages amounts follows, “which they [the signer] acknowledge and agree is reasonable in light of the circumstances at the time this contract is made.”

Disclosure of confidential information: $50,000 “for each person to whom each such disclosure or repetition is made.” Cooperating with a publication: $20 for each copy printed of a newspaper or magazine, with a minimum of $1,000,000 per publication. $250 for each copy printed of a book, with a minimum of $1,000,000 in the US, $500,000 per territory in Japan, the UK, Germany, Italy, France, Canada, Australia, Scandinavia, or Spain. $20,000 per theatrical exhibition. $5,000,000 per network television broadcast. $2,000,000 per non-network television broadcast. $1,000,000 per foreign television broadcast in “major” territories (see above) $500,000 per broadcast in other countries. $30 per unit for video recordings, with a minimum of $1,000,000. $10 per unit for audio recording, with a minimum of $1,000,000. By other public disclosure: $1,000,000 per disclosure or repetition.

No wonder, Leah points out, that most people never utter a word.

Leah says that this Sea Org operation to get Cruise a mate also included intimate instructions about how to please Cruise in bed.

“Nazanin was getting notes from Jessica Feshbach about how to be more aggressive with Tom sexually. Because Tom had told Tommy and Jessica, ‘I don’t like that Naz is not aggressive with me sexually, handle it.’

When Nazanin would show up on set where Tom was, he would grab her in front of everyone and stick his tongue down her throat. And when she didn’t reciprocate, she was sent to her church for fixing — and the fixers were Jessica and Tommy. Jessica said “what the fuck, chick. You made Tom look bad.”

Another time, Nazanin told Leah about being asked to join Cruise on the set of War of the Worlds. “He grabbed her and started making out with her right in front of Steven Spielberg. Nazanin was extremely uncomfortable about it. It was inappropriate on any level, doing that in public. She pushed him away. The next thing she knew, she was visited by Tommy and Jessica. ‘Don’t ever do that again,’ they told her. ‘And also, we want to talk to you about your sexual performance.’ They told her that what Tom wanted was for her to be more forward. ‘Like be more aggressive, shove your hand down his pants,’ Jessica said.”

Leah reminds us that it was Tommy Davis who delivered the news to Nazanin that Cruise was breaking up with her.

“Tom just didn’t have the time or balls to do it himself.”

Weird. Tom felt it was necessary to make sure other people know how much he loves making out with women. As if he were putting on a show.

by Anonymousreply 708/01/2020

Pat Kingsley protected Tom Cruise from the media. She was a pioneer in her industry, the person who brokered her A-list clients for her smaller clients. She had power and control over journalists, and if you fucked with Tom Cruise, you fucked with her entire client list.

Tommy Davis had taken it upon himself to run the operation after insisting that Tom fire Kingsley. Tommy had a folder of “intel” that he had collected of Pat Kinglsey’s entire history. There were copies of financial records and other sensitive information, and photographs revealing private details of her life that Davis felt could be damaging to her if there was any backlash to Cruise after he fired her. He called it a “dirt file.”

In essence, it was blackmail.

(...) Leah Remini makes no bones about it: She believes Cruise had to know that Tommy Davis, on behalf of David Miscavige and the church, was blackmailing Kingsley to keep quiet about what was really going on.

everything in it indicates that it isn't a church. it's a mafia. they just use that "church" nonsense as a cover. who falls for it, and why? they must seek out the most damaged children (emotionally, children) to be controlled and ordered in such a way and think that is "religion".

also, isn't this the way Hollywood itself works? no one is up front with anyone, no one speaks out honestly about anyone because dozens and hundreds of people are making money off one asshole's back? everything is about image, and people are hired and fired around made up nonsense related to preserving it?

basically, cruise has gotten away with it for decades because of the apathy of the public and the whoredom of hollywood meaning as long as cruise makes money and personally is NICE to everyone on the set, studio heads and so on, NO ONE CARES!......

his career should have literally ended years ago, when he should have been asked and MADE to answer to all he has done and KNOWS has gone on in his "religion" and turned a blind eye to it all...

like a politician, whose entire career, success and power and wealth is solely because of the public's favor, cruise should have suffered the consequences! a politician would have indeed been cornered, FORCED to answer to what he's involved in, the allegations, rumors, lawsuits and acts of what he's involved in and rightfully if he didn't answer been forced out of office or never attain office. but with cruise? he has gotten a free pass and why? because well he's ONLY a actor, and he doesn't have power authority over people's lives (like a politician) and he's handsome and entertains people!

this is a man who BANS anyone, anywhere, anytime from asking him about ANY of this! who hasn't sat for a REAL interview in years and years, who only shows up on late night talk show ass kissing affairs and the hosts sickening comply with his demands! oh wait, i forgot such shows are NOT the right place and time to ask him about it! then when is it? cruise only does these shows when he's promoting a film, so exactly when is ANYONE ANYWHERE suppose to ask him the questions that should have been asked and answers demanded years and years ago!. cruise is laughing at these shows, these hosts, entertainment tonight shows and so on, and hollywood and these shows and hosts seemingly don't care because it's a you kiss our ass (ratings) and will kiss your ass (attention for tom).....shame on all of them and the whole industry!

[quote]cruise has also been accused of shoving a female employee into a cabinet....

Yes and she wasn't the only one, from Marty Rathbun's book "The Scientology Reformation":

"…Miscavige’s reaction to my escape was chilling. He ordered John Brousseau, his resident handyman – and the architect of most of the Tom Cruise vehicle and home upgrades – to install prison bars on all windows in the Hole so that no one else could escape.

With me out of the way, Miscavige’s madness was unbridled. He began to tell Tom Cruise tales of having to physically beat the degraded beings in his environment to keep them in line. Cruise followed suit, doing the same to his own staff. Michael Doven (the one in R2), his long-time personal assistant, started receiving regular physical abuse from Tom. Another of Tom’s staff – a woman – was grabbed and slammed up against a file cabinet by Cruise for failing to show him proper respect. He railed and screamed, like Miscavige, when he discovered a near-microscopic chip in a drinking glass handed to him by one of his staff. He was convinced the degraded beings were steadily sabotaging him, stalking him like the zombies from Night of the Living Dead. Tom even physically abused the one-time international spokesperson for Scientology, one Tommy Davis.

Miscavige was happy to have Tom ape his own psychotic behavior. He once briefed the inhabitants of the Hole that Tom was fully informed of their conspiracies to destroy Miscavige. He told the assembled that Tom promised to come to the Hole to give Yager, Ray Mithoff (the highest scriptural authority in Scientology) and the former executor of Mr. Hubbard’s will, Norman Starkey, black eyes if their confessions were not to Dave’s liking. In order to prevent the world’s biggest star from having to do Dave’s dirty work, the leadership within the Hole decided they had better do it first. The eighty staff went into a frenzy of punching and kicking the trio, fattening the lips and blackening the eyes of all three.

By mid-to-late 2004 Tom was so locked in to Miscavige’s spell he was incapable of comfortable socialization with the outside world, at least on an intimate basis. He asked his best friend Dave to help him find a good-looking Scientologist wife, so he would not wind up with another degraded being like his previous two wives…"

Speaking of family, I believe this was posted before on here but a reminder that he kicked out his 14yo niece because she kissed a boy:

"Jamie’s offense was simply making out with a boy in Tom’s house in Los Angeles, where Jamie lived with her mother Cass Mapother. Jamie’s activity was caught on Tom’s in-house security cameras. The Scientology security staff working at the house reported Jamie to Tom. Jamie’s punishment was to be sent to Scientology’s “Applied Scholastics” facility in St. Louis to complete Scientology’s lower ethics conditions under the supervision of high-level public Scientologist Bennetta Slaughter.

Lower conditions can usually be completed in days or weeks. Jamie spent two years working on lower conditions before Tom decided she’d done enough and could be allowed back in the family. (...)During this two-year period Jamie was allowed to speak with her mother on the phone but was not allowed to go to LA to see her because Tom did not want Jamie near him. Jamie was not allowed to spend holidays with her mother or attend family gatherings.

Jamie had to submit a written request to be accepted back into the family. Final approval of the request could only be given by Tom, not Jamie’s mother. (...) Only once the request had been approved by the President’s Office at Flag and by RTC could it be sent to Tom. The first time Tom received the request he disapproved it, saying that more amends needed to be done. Eventually Jamie was accepted back into the family by Tom and was allowed to move back to Los Angeles.

Jamie Lesavoy later joined staff at the Church of Scientology in LA (LA Org) and a few years ago she joined the Sea Organization where she still works to this day. It’s not unheard of for a celebrity’s child to join the SO, however the Sea Org recruiters in Los Angeles had very explicit orders never to attempt to recruit any members of Tom Cruise’s family as earlier attempts to do so had created big upsets in the family. None of Tom’s nieces or nephews were encouraged to join staff or the Sea Org, so it’s a bit of a mystery why Jamie would make that decision. We can only speculate, but we are left to wonder if perhaps signing up to work for Scientology was the only way Jamie could truly make amends for having offended Tom’s conservative sensibilities.

Do you think Tom actually believes Scientology is real? Is he mentally ill? Brainwashed? How did this happen?

Or does he know it’s all fake but they have the goods on him like Travolta?

He certainly can’t be making any money off this. He’s likely lost money having to give it to the church. Why is he still doing this?

He 100% believes in it, so does Travolta.

Does Remini have 24 hour security? She must live in constant fear that these people are going to take her out. Tom could write a check and it would even put the smallest blip in his wealth to have her disappeared.

R76.. well could be a number of factors known and unknown for a few examples 1) he's not the smartest tool in the shed, barely graduated from high school and seemingly has not a shred of critical thinking skills 2) was coddled by his mother and sisters and never told no before or since he became a star... he obviously has abandonment and personality disorder issues never addressed too...

3) one has to wonder why if someone is quote "normal and logical and sane" would they make the leader of their religion, a alleged sociopath their best friend and not REMOTELY consider how this is improper, inappropriate, immoral and unethical for him to do so or the leader to have a best friend that he places above all others..

4) he's addicted to the ass kissing his "religion" has given him 24/7 for over 3 decades and thinks it's normal, okay and even DESERVED because of "who he is"?... hollywood and the public kissing his ass wasn't enough, he needed it from his "religion" too? yikes, what does THAT say?!...PROFOUNDLY insecure going into mental illness land?...

he obviously had/has issues never addressed and that the cult seized on and made WORSE ON PURPOSE........

i wonder if 3 wives ever tried to get thru to him and how those arguments went down...

R76 I don't know about now but there was a time when Tom Cruise must have believed in it and scientology's promises of giving you super powers because in 1990 he had to learn how to "audit" someone they picked a teenager, Marc Headley, who grew up in scientology and Cruise tried for weeks to make him believe that he could make objects move just by telling them to...

[quote]"You do a lot of things with a book and a bottle," Headley says. "It's known as the book-and-bottle routine." Cruise, he says, would instruct Headley to speak to a book, telling it to stand up, or to sit down, or otherwise to move somewhere. "You do the same with the bottle. You talk to it. You do it with an ashtray too," he says. "You tell the ashtray, 'Sit in that chair.' Then you actually go over and put the ashtray on the chair. Then you tell the ashtray, 'Thank you.' Then you do the same thing with the bottle, and the book. And you do this for hours and hours." (...) Headley says that after a couple of weeks, he did begin to wonder about trying to make objects move by talking to them. But this was Tom Cruise, and not someone you would question.

[quote] i wonder if 3 wives ever tried to get thru to him and how those arguments went down...

Mimi Rogers brought him into scientology, Kidman tried to get him out but Cruise's assistant started reporting everything back to scientologists:

"That same year, 1990, Cruise had begun dating Kidman. But if Miscavige was hoping that Cruise was going to become a more involved Scientologist, instead the actor pulled away. Late in 1990, Cruise and Kidman were married. In 1991, Cruise all but separated from Scientology, but the church managed to keep it quiet.

“Nicole was really sour on Scientology and kept pressing Tom to stay away from Int Base,” Marty Rathbun tells me. Until 2004, Rathbun was perhaps the highest-ranking official in the church after Miscavige. (He wore the title of the RTC’s Inspector General-Ethics, but all that really mattered was that he answered to only one person — Miscavige.) “Nicole spotted Miscavige and didn’t like what she saw. Her big issue was that Tom was becoming like Miscavige. Nicole didn’t like the relationship that was developing between them,” Rathbun says.

“She was sort of leading him away from it. I don’t think Tom did really anything from 1991 to 2001, except for a few sessions in 1998. And he hadn’t talked to Miscavige that whole period, which really drove Miscavige ape shit,” Rathbun adds.

But throughout the period when Cruise stayed away, Rathbun says, Miscavige received detailed information about the Cruise household through Doven, who had become Cruise’s assistant. (...) I asked Rathbun if Cruise realized he was being spied on. “I’m not sure what Tom knew,” he answered. “But he treated Doven like shit in front of me.”

R82 Did Tom have him handle his cylinder during the audit?

by Anonymousreply 84Last Wednesday at 9:53 AM

wait my bad r81 you probably meant to ask if they got through to him about his other issues not just scientology, poor reading comprehension skills here sorry...

R84 could that be why he called his book "BLOWN for GOOD"?

I think Travolta had doubts. Because that's when photos and stories started leaking out about him being gay.

But then suddenly there were articles about Travolta sticking with Scientology and the leaks stopped.

Somehow I always thought that Scientology had some way of re-starting the stalled careers of former "big" stars. The more that I have been exposed to the once very secretive cult - the less this seems to be the case. For the life of me, I can't figure out what any of them are getting out of it (minus the big wigs at the top of the cult - what they are getting is obvious).

by Anonymousreply 88Last Thursday at 2:03 AM

R88.... good point... back in the day scientology had a actual list of stars they wanted to get into this cult...99% to 100% of them of course never knew and never got in....

the "celebrities' that did get involved were always has beens and never were's until cruise of course! that is what makes cruise's involvement so bizarre...

he was a superstar before he ever heard of scientology, why did he need it that badly, felt it was that incredible and to stay in it for over 3 decades risking wives, children, career and reputation?

helped him with his long dead daddy abandonment issue?, what they got him to read a bit better?, gave him the idea he was smart and more than just some "actor"?, the leader conned him cruise into thinking him the leader being such a good good guy and best friend he cruise never had (?)? they, scientology, had a "good message"?, and offered even more then hollywood and the public 24/7 ass kissing?...

A little interval in the discussion, ranking of TC’s performances. I was pleasantly surprised by number one, and shocked by a few performances towards the bottom.

For a long time I refused to watch any of his movies due to his involvement in the cult, and especially because of the rumors of him being a violent asshole towards those below him in the cult. Then one day I accidentally watched one of his latest Mission Impossible movies when it was on tv and rather liked it. And then I even paid for a ticket to see the latest one in a theater. I guess I wanted to give him a pass because I like the movies series. But now after what Remini said I guess it's time to return to another non-Cruise era. I mean this man so seriously believes he's better than people around him that he has no trouble physically attacking them. What a stupid fucking cunt.

Cruise just never resonated with me. He was very attractive but never sexy, he's a decent actor but not at all engaging, he exuded confidence but never an ounce of authenticity. Let's face it - most leading men are actually quite obnoxious, lack in talent and can be called far worse than my descriptions of Tom. In many ways - the fact that he is a fucked up cult member and deeply closeted gay man make him vaguely more interesting than the bland piece of cardboard that he would have been otherwise. I'm just not sure that any great reveal would surprise me and frankly he is too old and tired for most to care about one way or the other in 2020. He will forever be a great star, but his days of anyone caring much about his personal life are long over IMO. And yeah he sounds like a complete asshole behind the scenes.

R90 - very interesting ranking. I would have to agree that Magnolia might be Tom's best acting to date. It was a wacky movie - but also quite great nonetheless. PTA was on roll and had wowed us all with Boogie Nights 2 years prior. Magnolia could have been Oscar bait for more actors than just Cruise - quite a few pulled off some amazing acting with the bizarre material. Admittedly, I have never been a huge fan of Cruise's looks - but he was at a peak here and his acting was quite compelling. Interesting list.

I’ve always wondered what the story is behind Nicole Kidman not having any type of relationship with her 2 kids with Cruise. They were pretty young too. She could have taken him to court and fought for at least 50-50 custody; that’s pretty standard. I’ve always felt he must have given her a large settlement in exchange for giving them up.

What day of the week do Scientologist go to church on, or is the right question which day don’t they go on?

by Anonymousreply 97Last Friday at 6:49 PM

R97 Wikipedia says Sunday.

A Scientology Sunday service has a sermon, similar to other religions in the United States. It typically begins at 11am and Hubbard's writings are read aloud during the service.
