Leah Remini thinks Tom Cruise would have a plan to ‘lure’ daughter Suri into Scientology once she gets older.
The church member-turned-outspoken critic said that based on her experience with Scientology Cruise, 58, is likely waiting until the 15-year-old grows up to get her ‘away from her mother’ Katie Homes, 41, and into the religion.
‘Scientology considers Katie a suppressive person which is an enemy and therefore Tom believes, like all Scientologists, that he can’t be connected to Suri,’ Remini, 50, explained to the New York Post.
‘I’m sure his master plan is to wait until Suri gets older so that he can lure her into Scientology and away from her mother,’ she claimed.
It’s been reported that Cruise has not seen Suri since she was just seven. The last time his was photographed with his daughter was in 2013.
Cruise has not made any statements indicating he plans to introduce Suri to Scientology. DailyMail.com reached out to Tom’s team for comment.
Leah went on to say how surprised she was to see Holmes walk from the relationship in 2012.
‘I knew Katie when she was in (Scientology) and she seemed very indoctrinated into Tom’s world,’ she said.
‘But as time went on, and I understood why she did what she did to protect her daughter… I’m only assuming that there’s some type of agreement to protect her daughter.’
Leah went on saying she was ‘really proud’ of Holmes ‘for getting her daughter out of something that would have been potentially very toxic and dangerous for not only Suri but for their relationship.’
She then slammed Cruise, claiminig he is simply ‘not a good person’ and that he ‘continues to sit by and watch people’s lives get destroyed, including the disappearance of his best friend’s wife, Shelly Miscavige, who has not been seen in public in 15 years.’
Shelly Miscavige, the wife of leader David Miscavige, has allegedly not been seen in years with many believing she was ‘banished’ in 2005, according to The Post. The church disputes those claims and says that she is alive and well.
Leah was raised as a Scientologist starting from age nine after her mother joined the organization. She left in 2013 and has since become a staunch critic of the church.Leah Remini opens up about Scientology to Jada Pinkett Smith
While Suri and Tom are reported to have no relationship, Cruise is said to be close with older kids Isabella, 27, and Connor, 25, who are both practicing Scientologists.
Their mother Nicole Kidman has remained quiet about what kind of relationship she has with her adult children, given their chosen faith.
‘They are able to make their own decisions,’ she told Australia’s Who magazine in 2018.
‘They have made choices to be Scientologists and as a mother, it’s my job to love them. And I am an example of that tolerance, and that’s what I believe — that no matter what your child does, the child has love and the child has to know there is available love and I’m open here.’
