This is the SECOND time we've heard this rumor in less than a month, so maybe there is some truth to it…
A friend has come forward to reveal that Tom Cruise blames Scientology for his third divorce and might be giving up the religion he has practiced since 1990 as a result.
The unexpected divorce from Katie Holmes seems to have given the actor an epiphany because he's starting to think that L. Ron Hubbard's teachings aren't marriage friendly, as the source explained:
"Now he's lost the most precious thing in his life, he sees that his Scientology beliefs may not have hurt his box office [success] but have ended not one but two marriages. He lost Nicole and now his wife and daughter. He has always used the Scientology techniques but he has now realized they don't work in marriage."
He's just starting to realize this now? Guess third time really is the charm!
On top of his marriage woes, his relationship with Church leader David Miscavige has been dissolving as well. His friend continued to explain:
"Tom and David have been attached at the hip but this relationship has deteriorated and that, along with the loss of Katie and Suri, is forcing his to question his role in the church. He hasn't lost faith completely, but he is blaming Scientology for what has happened."
We doubt Katie would welcome her ex back into her life with open arms, but at least his next romantic relationship won't be doomed from the the start.
