If John Travolta and Kelly Preston are the Kate and William of Scientology’s royal couples, then Beck and Marissa Ribisi are the Meghan and Harry. But as Prince Charles proved (or Tom Cruise in this scenario), there’s no actual law prohibiting a royal divorce. Lifelong Scientologists Beck and Marissa (both were raised by believers), are proving once and for all, that all is possible Under His Eye (L.Ron’s eye in this scenario). Quick, somebody needs to run tell Jenna Elfman that just because you’re a dyed in the wool Scientologist, it doesn’t mean you have to spend an earth eternity living in miserable marriage in the name of Going Clear.
According to People, Beck and Marissa filed divorce papers last week after being married for 15 years. The couple have 2 kids with appropriately hipster names; 14-year-old son Cosimo Henry and 11-year-old daughter Tuesday. Marissa’s twin brother, Giovanni Ribisi, is twice divorced himself. Their mother, Gay Ribisi, is a producer and talent manager (she currently represents Elisabeth Moss). Now ex-Scientologist Jason Lee’s ex-wife, Carmen Llywelyn, claimed that Gay effectively ended her career when she decided to divorce Jason because she wasn’t down to clown with L. Ron. I’m sure momma Ribisi is none to pleased with this development involving her own child. There are probably fewer second generation celebrity Scientology marriages than there are living OT 8s!
Beck recently attended the Grammys where he won for Best Alternative Music Album and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. He brought his daughter Tuesday as his date. Beck also has a song out on the Lego Movie sequel called Super Cool. Marissa sells organic tampons.
