Recently, “Vanity Fair” published an article about the Church of Scientology auditioning wives for Tom Cruise. Reportedly, Iranian actress Nazanin Boniadi received auditing on a daily basis so that she could date Tom. This all went down allegedly in 2004, prior to his meeting future ex-wife Katie Holmes.
Tom’s lawyer Bert Fields is hitting back at the reports in the article, calling the article “long, boring and false.” Are you buying it?
The attorney issued a statement to “The Hollywood Reporter”, saying, “Vanity Fair’s story is essentially a rehash of tired old lies previously run in the supermarket tabloids, quoting the same bogus ‘sources’.”
The article stated that Nazanin breached her confidentiality agreements with the church after speaking with a friend about the ordeal. It went on to say that she was punished for her act by being made to clean toilets with a toothbrush.
A rep for the church said, “The allegation and entire premise of the Vanity Fair article is totally false. We have been denying this ridiculous tale now since it first appeared in print four years ago. No Church members were ‘used’, nor were they punished, nor silenced. This is totally false.”
Who’s side are you on in this?
