Former Scientologist Marty Rathbun told the October issue of Vanity Fair magazine: "The central problem [in the marriage] was Nicole did not want to deal with Scientology."
Another former Scientologist, John Brousseau, added: "They rejected Nicole - they'd been instructed.
"They took a course, P.T.S./S.P., [Potential Trouble Source/Suppressive Person] for persons connected in their lives who are an S.P.
"[Bella and Connor] whispered to me, 'J.B., Nicole is an S.P.! Our mom's an S.P. - we hate going and seeing her.'"
Meanwhile, Mr. Brousseau also claimed all Scientologists were warned against Nicole and banned from seeing her movies.
He added: "The Scientology world hated Nicole. People were mandated to see every freaking Tom Cruise movie that came out. But if you ever mentioned an inkling to see a movie with Nicole, oh my God, you'd hear about it."
According to CNN, Tom’s attorney Bert Fields has ridiculed the article’s claims, saying:“Vanity Fair’s story is essentially a rehash of tired old lies previously run in the supermarket tabloids, quoting the same bogus ‘sources. It’s long, boring and false.”
