Tom Cruise Dumped By Penélope Cruz Because Scientology Was 'Third Wheel In Their Relationship'

| Filed under: Tom CruisePenelope CruzLove LineNicole KidmanKatie HolmesJavier Bardem

It sounds like the Church of Scientology has done more harm than good in Tom Cruise's life.

Not only has David Miscavige allegedly recorded and mocked the actor's secrete confessions — without his consent — but the religion scared off Penélope Cruz too!

Following his divorce with Nicole Kidman, Cruise fell deeply in love with his Vanilla Sky co-star and dated her for three years.

He was hoping she'd become his third wife, but after the seksi actress began to feel like Scientology "was the third wheel in their relationship," she delivered a crushing blow by dumping him. A source close to the situation explained:

"Tom had absolutely planned on proposing to Penelope, and they had openly discussed marriage during the three years they were dating. Tom was head over heels in love with Penelope and could see them spending the rest of their lives together, and she felt the same way. However, Penelope pulled the plug on the relationship because she felt that the Church of Scientology was the third wheel in their relationship."

Even though the religion got in the way of their happiness, Penélope doesn't have anything against it. In fact, she even "admired Tom's dedication to it" at one point, as the source continued:

"Penelope doesn't have anything against the Church, but it just wasn't her thing. She admired Tom's dedication to it, but it wasn't her cup of tea and wasn't something she wanted to give her life up for."

The Mission: Impossible star's rep says "it's ridiculously false" that his religion got in the way of his romance with Cruz, but after reading Vanity Fair's controversial cover story, it's hard NOT to believe that at least some of this stuff has to be true.

Eight years since their split, Cruz is happily married and shares a child with Javier Bardem, while the other Cruise is not happily married but shares an adorable child with Katie Holmes.

    "It sounds like the Church of Scientology has done more harm than good in Tom Cruise's life." That's not for you to say, asshole. The only exposure you've had to Scientology is through stealing gossip and opinions from other sites. I personally have no use for any organized religion (they're ALL cults … some are just older than others), but it's up to the individual to define harm and to define good; it's up to the individual to decide what one's priorities are. You are a flamer gay whose most meaningful romantic relationship is with his mommy. You are laughed at by most, and you have accomplished nothing of merit in your wasted life. You are hardly one to make judgment calls when it comes to the lives of others.

    Damn, you have such a hard on for Tom Cruise and everything he does. Why? Why is it your business. You cry all the time about "bullies" then relentlessly post unflattering pieces about him. Fuck off homo, more people like and respect him than they do you.

    Haha, two hate-comments in short order, one of them even of the "I'm not a Scientologist, but" class!

    Face it, Scientology seems to have pretty much wreaked his career AND his personal life. I don't hate him, in fact, I really feel sorry for him. It appears he is increasingly unable to form long term relationships due to the Church of Scientology meddling in his affairs. He's talented enough and good looking, he would probably have fared a lot better without them.

I don't understand that, if two people care for one another it shouldn't matter so what's the big deal than. well tom you should just let up on it some, I come from two backgrounds and it never came between me or anything else. susan kuby stassi,

    Re: david – You scientologists are against gays, so why is your leader David Miscavige as well as Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Will Smith, Jada Smith who are your "dedicated Scientologist celebs are in the closet gay?
    Why you have so much hate about gays? What have you done to them, I mean in your scientology lingo (what is your Overt/sins towards gays).
    IMO, the non-scientologist gays are the most loving people but on the other hands, you "dedicated" kool aid drinkers of the cult of scientology, are the haters. If you believe your auditing process can handle your hate, then you may want to get some auditing, if it hasn't worked for you. Maybe we can help you to be at peace with yourself.

    Re: Andie – You are right, they are not Tom's kids. They were actually delivered by 2 of the Sea org member who were forced to give up by David Miscavige since he cuts families ties and won't allow procreation in the Sea org. At the same time, David Miscavige's buddy Tom Cruise could make babies so David told him to adopt those kids (Connor and Bella) and then once they are grown, put them back into the Sea org where David Miscavige could control them.
    As we know Bella is going to join the Sea org or she might already be in it. Connor on the other hand is still out and is spying on Tom Cruise for David Miscavige.
    That is how David Miscavige controls people's entire life and family. Sucks!

    Penelope Cruz is still a devoted Scientologist. Her brother was recently having some emotional situation and Penelope called her connections in the church of scientology to sent him an auditor (counselor) immediately to "help" him.
    This is TRUE!

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – Oh hi there Mr. I-Am-Not-A-Scientologist!
    Can you give me a stress test?

    Re: Nadine – Jeez, everyone who reads gossip sites or magazines in the beauty parlor knows his first two are adopted.

    Re: Nadine

    So what you're saying is 2 scientologist women had Connor and Bella and were forced to give them up and they were given to Tom Cruise?
    I find that very hard to believe. Also your comment ' At the same time, David Miscavige's buddy Tom Cruise could make babies so David told him to adopt those kids' sounds even more ridiculous.

    Re: Yes You Bore Me

    It is completely obvious that Scientology has done him more harm than good. Can you not see that? His latest wife had to plan a secret escape ffs!!!
    How can the individual of ANY cult define harm or good..they are brainwashed. The evidence is out there and not just on gossip sites, there are thousands of interviews, books etc by ppl who used to be in the cult but were able to get out..I believe everyone has a right to judge this cult the way we judge other cults, including Perez.

    The romantic relationship with his mom statement was silly, just say you don't like him, why do you need to stoop that low?

    Re: TRUTH
    Penelope Cruz is not a scientologist.
