Tom Cruise is reportedly leaving the controversial Church of Scientology. Sources say “Tom has finally had enough” and that he “may soon part ways with the cultlike religion.”
There have even been accusations that Scientology is to blame for Tom’s failed marriages to both Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes.
Similar rumors surround Cruise’s failure to particpate in Suri Cruise’s life, creating even greater hostility between Tom and ex-wife Katie Holmes.

The 52-year-old movie star recently had a tearful phonecall with his daughter that changed everything.
“She was going on and on about her ballet class and how much she loves it. That’s when Tom realized he’s never seen her perform ballet and he started to tear up,” an insider claimed.
“It hit him that she’s growing up before his eyes and he’s not there to witness most of it. They talk on the phone and video chat, but it’s not the same.”

An In Touch headline claims that Cruise had spent "540 days" away from the eight-year-old daughter he shares with Katie Holmes.
"My understanding is that Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise don't even speak to each other," Piers Morgan said.
"And she, I believe, is very concerned about the effect of the Church of Scientology on Tom Cruise."
Earlier this year, a new documentary, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, took an inside look at what was once considered to be one of the most secretive religious organizations in today’s society.
But now, as the actor begins promoting his latest Mission: Impossible film, a change has come over Tom’s demeanor. He is no longer as outspoken on his belief in Scientology as he once had been.

Tom is one of the highest paid actors in the world and his net worth is estimated to $450 million according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Tom is claimed to hire plenty of lawyers to leave the religion. “He knows things are going to get ugly,” says the source.
