That headline probably prompted at least one person to wonder when Captain Obvious got into Scientology. But the former Scientologist in question is once again Sam Domingo, former wife of Placido Domingo Jr. The last time Sam opened up about Scientology, she claimed that Tom Cruise and his children Isabella and Connor Cruise were forced to disconnect from their mother, Nicole Kidman, after she split from Tom and Scientology. Sam is back, this time talking to UsWeekly. And according to Sam, there’s a reason why you don’t see current pictures of Tom and his 13-year-old daughter Suri Cruise, and it’s because Suri allegedly got the Nicole treatment.
Sam talked to Us Weekly to promote her book titledJe Suis a Cult Whistleblower: Scientology Kill, and claims that Tom chose to live out some kind of opposite-day version of Not Without My Daughter called My Best Friend David Said I Gotta Live Without My Daughter, So I’m Gonna Do That.
The internet is filled with rumors that Tom Cruise hasn’t seen Suri since 2013. Tom Cruise got divorced from Katie Holmes in 2012, and she’s got custody of Suri. Obviously the theory was that Suri and her mom were now considered “suppressive persons.” The last time Tom was seen with Suri was in 2013, and Sam implies it might have been a phony bonding session.
“Maybe he did it for a photo op to make it seem like he was connected so he wouldn’t be criticized.”
Sam adds that Tom probably believes Suri isn’t even his daughter anymore, and that she’s merely just a spiritual being in the body of his daughter. I wonder if he’s allowed to send birthday presents to a spiritual being? Because if not, then he really is the deadbeatiest of dads. All that Mission: Impossible money and Hollywood connections and you can’t even hook your a kid up with Taylor Swift tickets?
Unsurprisingly, a Scientology rep shot back at Sam’s claims, and told UsWeekly Sam’s claims are “fiction.”
“Everything about your inquiry misrepresents the Church of Scientology, its practices, and the lifestyle of its ministry.”
Misrepresents? In what way? There’s literally no proof that Tom Cruise has seen Suri since Obama was still in office, and multiple people have claimed that Scientologists cut off contact with non-Scientologists, regardless if they’re their kids. The burden of proof is on Scientology at this point. I just hope Scientology higher ups don’t try to fake it with some new, exclusive pictures of Tom getting ice cream with what appears to be Suri. Because we’ve all seen what John Travolta looks like in a brown wig and a pink dress, and it’s not Suri.
