Fluff: Tom Cruise reveals Katie Holmes left because of Scientology.


Tom Cruise confesses Scientology played a role in his divorce from Katie Holmes.

The revelation comes from the Top Gun star’s recent defamation lawsuit against Bauer Media whose tabloid magazines claimed that he had abandoned his daughter in their coverage of his divorce last June.

In the deposition, Cruise admits that Holmes said one of the reasons she left him was to protect their daughter, Suri, from Scientology.

Lawyers for Bauer media ask Cruise if he believes it’s false that Holmes divorced him “in part to protect Suri from Scientology.”

Cruise responds: “Listen, I find that question offensive.”

“I find it — those statements offensive. And like with any relationship, there are many different levels to it. You know, I — I find it very offensive. There is no need to protect my daughter from my religion.”

But when the attorney questions him further, “And Ms. Holmes has never indicated in any way that was one of the reasons she left you? … To protect Suri from Scientology?”

“Did she say that? That was one of the assertions, yes,” Cruise says, before noting that neither Suri nor Holmes are practicing Scientology now.

8. Beyonce fans petition against her attending Kim Kardashian’s wedding.

Oh Internet. It’s only Monday and you’ve already outdone yourself.

Somebody started a petition on Change.org this week called ‘BEYONCE CANNOT ATTEND KIM KARDASHIAN’S WEDDING’.

If you need further explanation, the creator of the petition basically thinks that Beyonce cannot attend Kim Kardashian’s wedding.

Apparently, according to this fan anyway, Queen Bey is too much of a holy figure to be seen at such a lowly event.

They attached this online signature template:

Along with this explanation:

“We must do all in our power to stop Beyoncé from attending that god forsaken wedding, since her husband Jay Z is BFFs with Kanye he problaby [sic] wants both of them to go…”

And (our favourite):

“Your [sic] Beyonce you always have something better to do than to attend a Kim Kardashian wedding.”

Well, that’s proabably true, but before the petition could even reach 500 signatures, the creator got cold feet and took it down, leaving this update in it’s place:


And that was that.

Bey really does bring out the crazy in people.
