Some breakups are pretty amicable and the two parties remain friends.
But others? Well.... others are less than amicable.
Click through the following photos and stories to remember the splits that resulted in anger, bitterness and many mean social media posts:
1. Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris
2. Johnny Depp & Amber Heard
3. Kailyn Lory & Javi Marroquin
4. Madonna & Sean Penn
5. Matt Damon & Minnie Driver
6. Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries
Leah Remini rose to fame as a no-nonsense, straight talking character on the terrible CBS sitcom King of Queens.
And, based on her latest comments about Tom Cruise, it doesn't sound as though this woman was a stretch for Remini to portray.
The actress, who will reunite with Kevin James this fall as a series regular on Kevin Can Wait, sat down this week for a Reddit AMA.
Asked at one point whether Cruise is a good person, Remini did not hold any opinion back.
"No! Just going to get straight to it, no!" she replied, expounding as follows:
"There is a public persona of the guy who looks at you directly in the eye and shakes your hand and hugs you and is an attentive person to you and there's the person behind the mask who is a completely different person."
In what way, exactly?
Remini tried to explain.
"Someone could say we all have that - what we are to the public and who we are behind the scenes," she said.
"But the people who are around Tom and work for Tom, not even people who are Scientologists, they will say he is diaboloical [sic]."
Remini, of course, has become as famous at this point for her connection to the Church of Scientology as she is for her career.
An ex member of that religious organization (for which Cruise is essentially a spokesman), Remini has broken free from the alleged cult and spoken out against it.
Frequently and passionately.
She said late last year, for example, that Scientology is full of rape and forced abortions.
The star made these stunning accusations as part of the A&E series Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath.
In this AMA, Remini noted that some folks she has worked with in the past might say she "can be an asshole," yet claimed it's a different story for Cruise who is one of the most high-profile members of the Church of Scientology.
Probably the most high profile.
"He's very similar to David Miscavige, they could be twins," she wrote, referencing the organization's leader.
A new season of Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath is on the way, one in which the host will once again delve into the dangers of her former religion.
She's talked previously about the child abuse and sexual harassment that takes place within in.
"Tom and most Scientologists, all Scientologists, are taught to believe that people like me are literally the devil, that we mean them harm," she told Larry King in December 2016 prior to claiming that the church is "defrauding people out of their lives."
In regard to her assessment of Cruise, the Church of Scientology said via statement to Us Weekly:
"Leah Remini has been obsessed with the leader of the Scientology religion and with Mr. Cruise for years, ever since she made a scene at Mr. Cruise's wedding when she couldn't get the seat she wanted.
"Remini is only commenting on these two prominent individuals to generate media coverage for herself and her hate campaign.
"Remini is bent on inciting hate and bigotry against a worldwide religion and its parishioners and she will stop at nothing to grab attention."
Tom Cruise is a crazy person. Not just because he’s the face of Scientology and actually believes whatever crazy stuff they believe this month. But because he’s a 55-year-old millionaire who still insists on doing his own stunts.
Currently, Cruise is filming the latest installment of Mission Impossible. His mission in this movie is to get from one building to the next without killing himself.
Here’s the problem when you’re 55-years-old and still believe that you can jump across buildings. You can’t. Why do you think they re-cast super heroes every seven years? No one believes that a 50-year-old can save the world because most 50-year-olds can barely get out of bed without their knees creaking and their back popping. The only reason we buy Tony Stark as a 50-year-old superhero is because he’s a millionaire who flies around in an armor suit and doesn’t actually do any of the work. If Stark were Captain America, he’d be dead.
The “splat” in the video is pretty unnerving. It sounds like every bone in Cruises’ body breaks as he slams into the side of the building.
I give Tom Cruise a lot of credit. He’s a brave man for continuing to want to do his own stunts. But no one will think less of him if he just retires from doing stunts. I’m willing to bet that most movie goers don’t even know that Cruise does his own stunts. They just assume it’s a double because why the hell is Tom Cruise doing his own stunts?
Here’s my suggestion, Tom. Stop doing your own stunts. And stop making Mission Impossible movies and make Top Gun 2 before Val Kilmer actually dies and you feel bad. The world doesn’t need more Mission Impossible movies. The world doesn’t need Top Gun 2 either, but we do need one last Val Kilmer movie.
Now that's one hell of a purpose!
But it looks like salvation may be on the horizon, as new reports claim the singer might be taking some time off to focus on his faith -- and possibly even start his own church!
That's right. The Church of Bieber -- or, if he wants to go more contemporary, Biebertology -- could actually be a reality.
Never one to be shy about talking faith, the Biebs has become more and more vocal about his religious affiliations these days.
Last month, he attended a conference for Hillsong, a Pentecostal megachurch based in Sydney, and afterward sat down alongside hipster pastor Carl Lentz to talk worship, professing:
"My faith grows every day, so my faith is stronger than two years ago; better, wiser, kinder."
Well, insiders are now saying the 23-year-old might actually be working to take his Beliebers to a higher ground with a church of his own. A source told Australia's Today Extra:
"I am led to believe that the real reason he's come off the road is because he wants to reconnect with his faith and maybe even planning to start his own Church. Whether he's looking at teaming up with [Hillsong]... or starting his own church, we're not quite sure... That's the word from an inside source."
Wow. Move over, Tom Cruise!!!
While we admit this is pretty farfetched, these spirited claims do have some merit.
Bieber has been closely linked with Lentz, a rock star within the Hillsong church, as of late. The preacher joined the singer on the road during his Purpose tour and has been popping up ALL over Biebs' Instagram:
A post shared by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on Jul 15, 2017 at 2:58pm PDT
A post shared by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on Jul 19, 2017 at 2:32pm PDT
The hitmaker confessed he canceled his tour due to some much needed rest, and his manager Scooter Braun responded to upset fans saying Justin's "soul and well being" came first.
We'll see if Bieber will use this time off to start saving the souls of his disciples.

Sean Penn is one of those celebrities that people conveniently forget is crazy. We’ll make fun of Tom Cruise until the world ends, but always seem to forget that Johnny Depp and Sean Penn are terrible people.
Penn has a well established history of freaking out at people that most of us actually like. So it’s not too surprising that he laid into musician Jimmy Giannopoulos. Or that he did it in front of his wife, Robin Wright. Giannopoulos dates their daughter, so maybe that has something to do with it? Nah, Sean Penn is crazy.
‘Sean had his cell phone in his hand and held it up to Jimmy’s face to show him the screen. A heated exchange followed, and Sean’s face got redder and redder as he confronted Jimmy with whatever was on the phone,’ one eyewitness recalled.
Things got so intense that Robin Wright started crying. Was it because of what Giannopoulos did or said? Or was it because Sean Penn looks like a scary tomato monster when he’s mad?
i should note that whatever is in the photo is prob upsetting because it made sean yell and robin CRY pic.twitter.com/ZHNDVEwUMD

In other news, why are all these hotties into Sean Penn? Robin Wright should be way out of his league. He dated Scarlett Johansson, remember that? WTF? Don’t they all know that he’s an abusive rage monster? He likes to hang out with notorious murderers for a reason. Because he’s crazy. No seriously, we all need to stop enabling Sean Penn. That dude needs to learn.
Sean Penn is so crazy, he makes Tom Cruise look sane standing next to him.
The rebooted The Mummy, which stars Tom Cruise and is part of Universal Pictures’ vision for a “Dark Universe” franchise, opened in American theaters recently. Despite netting $32 million, it still got its ass kicked by Wonder Woman. Some people are pointing their fingers at the leading man with some whispering that he took way too much creative control. Apparently, his ego’s out of control, since he’s called a “young man” in the movie. Yeah, maybe if he met the ancient “He chose… poorly” Knight Templar from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
Universal is showing public support for Cruise, issuing statements like:
“Tom approaches every project with a level of commitment and dedication that is unmatched by most working in our business today. He has been a true partner and creative collaborator, and his goal with any project he works on is to provide audiences with a truly cinematic moviegoing experience.”
You can almost hear their eyes rolling behind the PR-speak. It’s not like they are going to badmouth him in public. No stars do.
The thing that everyone seems to be dancing around is that Cruise might have ruined everything with his micromanaging. He’s not the same Cruise that he was in the 1990’s and 2000’s. Scientology’s Golden Boy is still a star, but his luminosity has faded… in America, at least. He’s still box-office gold overseas, which is what can help keep The Mummy from taking a complete bath. Still, if he wants to keep the crown on in Hollywood, he’s going to have to do a lot better.
Let’s be honest – staying at the top of the movie star heap is VERY difficult now. It’s a very different mindset and while some leading actors can make bank, special effects and other considerations curtail salaries. Jim Carrey, who could practically print money in the 1990’s, is now trying to climb his way back. It’s the way of Hollywood. Cruise may learn, like some football coaches who also took on a general manager’s duties, that wearing too many hats can hurt the overall product. If he stays this course, he’s going to have to eat all the hats.
Are you fed up with Tom Cruise yet? Universal is hoping you aren’t, because they basically turned The Mummy into the Tom Cruise show. I’ve got to imagine that working with the diminutive diva is a nightmare though. Drama follows Crusie wherever he goes, and even though he was trying to be a pal, drama came between him and Mummy co-star Jake Johnson.
The New Girl actor was busting his ass to get in shape for the movie. Cruise being Cruise, saunters over and is all like, “Hey bro, come use my gym.” Most of us would figure, thanks, I will use your gym. On the other hand, Cruise is crazy, so maybe we’d suspect shenanigans.
But when Johnson showed up things weren’t so simple. A trainer barred him entry. “You can’t go in right now because Tom is working out,” they said. Johnson must have been weirded out, so he left. When Cruise found him later that day he said, “What happened to you? I thought you said you were going to work out this morning?” Johnson told Cruise what had happened, and Tom was pissed.
“Let me make something crystal clear,” Cruise said to Johnson, with an intensity somewhere between Jerry McGuire and A Few Good Men. “I don’t care what anybody on the crew says to you, they don’t know what I’m saying to you. And I’m saying to you that you are always welcome.
So Cruise totally didn’t tell anyone else about the gym date right? The guy is in so deep, he probably assumes that just by saying something, he wills it into existence. Johnson didn’t seem to mind though. When asked about working with Cruise, he just said, “He’s the best.”
In the worst kept secret in Hollywood, Tom Cruise has confirmed that there will be a Top Gun sequel. He said he hopes to start filming within the next year. For Val Kilmer’s sake, I hope filming starts a lot sooner.

No one knows what Top Gun 2 will be about, but given that it’s 30 years later, it’s safe to assume that Cruise will still be the main star and do all of his own stunts. Tom Cruise does not age, ladies and gentlemen.
No one is even quite sure why there needs to be a Top Gun sequel other than there is always a need for speed. But there’s already been a Need for Speed movie.
I bet Kenny Loggins is super excited for this sequel, though. If he thought the royalty checks he got for the first movie were good, he’s going to be able to retire with all of the cash he banks off of the sequel. Good for you, Kenny Loggins.
The kicker is that the co-star was a woman. Hey ohhh!
This is all according to Curtis Armstrong, who played Booger in Revenge of the Nerds. He’s got a book coming out, Revenge of the Nerd: Or . . . The Singular Adventures of the Man Who Would Be Booger. One story from the book involves himself, Sean Penn and Tom Cruise.
They were all having breakfast. At the time, Cruise was filming Risky Business. He was bitching to Penn about his co-star Rebecca De Mornay and complained:
“She directs me. Constantly. How I should deliver lines, character stuff…”
“Character stuff? She’s giving you notes? Tell her to fuck off.”…
Tom was still smiling. “Yeah…” his voice trailed off. Then, “I’d love to f**k her though.
“So?” Sean said, now moving to nearby tables, taking those placemats and with focused deliberation, adding them to the pile. “Fuck her.”
Tom laughed. “I can’t fuck her,” he said, and I could swear he was blushing. “I’d like to, though.”
Penn finally told Cruise to give an ultimatum to De Mornay:
“Just tell her either she fucks you or she’s off the picture.”
Hollywood. Love it. Eventually, Cruise and De Mornay dated for two years, so looks like De Mornay did what she needed to keep that role.
Later on, Booger wrote in a diary entry:
“Tom and Rebecca are having it off in grand style. In my naïveté I thought it wasn’t all that serious, but last night Shera [a Risky Business co-star] and I interrupted them and threw ice over the bed.
“We had, the four of us, a party in the bar tonight, during which we danced and stripped. It was the best floorshow in that bar since I’ve been there…”
Orgy. You know that definitely happened.
Penn denied the story through his publicist, but what else is he gonna say?
Tom Cruise is a crazy motherfucker, but the fact that he’s willing to kill and torture himself in order for me to be entertained for under a minute really touches me.
He’s spent over a year training for some crazy MI6 stunt, almost drowned himself for another movie, and just did 64 takes in zero gravity to enhance my movie-going experience.
For a plane crash sequence in “The Mummy,” the actor’s upcoming monster movie, Cruise did 64 takes in zero gravity. The sequence took two days to shoot and four high-altitude flights, the filmmakers said during a trailer presentation on Wednesday at CinemaCon.
“There was a lot of barfing,” said Alex Kurtzman, the film’s writer and director.
Tom Cruise not only needs to be committed but is also very committed to films.
He does the kind of shit to himself on the regular that hasn’t happened to actors since Albert Hitchcock tied birds to that one chick to get vengeance on her for not sucking his dick and filmed it.
Tom Cruise was offered the option to do it on soundstage but turned it down because he wanted assholes like me to have a better movie going experience.
Tom Cruise has done more for me than most people I’ve dated.
Tom Cruise Casting Couched Vanessa Kirby, His ‘Mission: Impossible 6’ Co-Star and Future Alien Bearer
Run, Vanessa Kirby. Run.
Tom Cruise hasn’t had a serious relationship since he was jumping on Oprah’s couch screaming about Katie Holmes, but it looks like that might be ending.
A report suggests he’s crazy about his Mission: Impossible 6 co-star, English actress Vanessa Kirby. He cast her after seeing her role as Princess Margaret in The Crown.
We’re guessing he was not only super impressed with her role, but also super wants to bone her.
An insider told Us:
“He told the other MI producers that he had to have Vanessa for a crucial role in the franchise’s sixth installment. He’s blown away by her endless charm and energy.”
Yeah, I bet he is.
Apparently, they had instant chemistry, and he even wants to make her his next wife.
Yeah, but will Lord Xenu approve?
When you’re a celeb, your every move is watched and monitored by paparazzi, adoring (or even obsessed) fans, and even thieves. Thieves know that celebs are the perfect target for a burglary with the combination of celebs having expensive electronics, jewelry and other lavish items in their home and the fact that celebs are often traveling a lot and rarely home. Some famous faces know that they can be easy targets so they have taken some large and hard to believe security measures when it comes to protecting their homes. Here are just 3 celebs who have taken home security measures that are hard to believe.
Arguably one of the best professional quarterbacks to ever play football, the five-time Super Bowl winner has taken the ultimate precautions when it comes to keeping his home and supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen and kids safe. Tom Brady is not known for being much of a spender when it comes to luxury cars or flashy clothes, but when it comes to homes, Brady likes to take home security measures that you would find out of a fairytale. Brady actually designed his family home to be surrounded with a moat. Burglars would not only have to outwit his state of the art security system, they would actually have to get wet by having to swim to get to their property.
Tom Cruise has been a household name for decades but also has a reputation from his staff for running his household with military precision. The movie star and prominent Scientologist reportedly has the best money can buy when it comes to security. If you want access to his home, be prepared to encounter a heavily monitored gated property with armed guards. If you want to work in the Cruise household, be prepared to undergo intense background testing in order to be hired there. Even then, only certain employees can go into designated zones throughout the Cruise estate.
The billionaire and Microsoft founder has a mansion that is incredible. His home has technology built into every room, a 23 car garage, 24 bathrooms, a reception hall, swimming pool, and a trampoline room. With a mansion as amazing as his, of course, you want to take crazy security measures to protect it. It is reported that Bill Gates has the most advanced security systems that money can buy to protect his home and he also takes personal security to new measures by traveling in public with bodyguards always being by his side.
There is no need asking these celebs if a home security system is worth it. All 3 have fame and fortune and want to protect themselves by taking these incredible security measures to keep their home and family safer.
The Mummy trailer for IMAX was released a few days ago where it stayed up until someone discovered that they forgot to add the music track. Whoops. Luckily for everyone who enjoys other’s misfortunes, someone ripped the trailer and re-uploaded it for posterity. And also to just point and laugh at it.
The screaming without ambiance is just wonderful. Especially Tom Cruise’s “Waaahaaaa!”
In somewhat related news, this is a remake of Brendan Fraser’s version, but it’s also supposed to be part of the Universal Monsters shared universe. It’s actually the third in the series but has now become the first. You wouldn’t even know that Dracula Untold and Wolf Man were the first two because they were absolutely horrible. So, like your embarrassing sibling, Universal just pretended they didn’t exist.
Noses are such little things, really, but tiny nips and tucks can make huge differences! For some, a nose job can be a door opener.
For others, a nose job can be a total mess - even a career ender.
Sometimes, it's obvious which is which. Other times, it's a thin line, as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as they say, right?
In any case, here are 20 celebrity nose jobs you won't believe!
1. Britney Spears
2. Michael Jackson
3. Ashlee Simpson
4. Jennifer Aniston
5. Blake Lively
6. Tom Cruise
Some breakups are pretty amicable and the two parties remain friends.
Then there's the ones that just don't go down well and both parties throw jabs at one another on social media.
It can get pretty tiring.
We've compiled a list of some of the most bitter celebrity breakups in Hollywood history below:
1. Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris
2. Johnny Depp & Amber Heard
3. Kailyn Lory & Javi Marroquin
4. Madonna & Sean Penn
5. Matt Damon & Minnie Driver
6. Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries
Back in April, we reported that Tom Cruise had not seen his daughter Suri in 1,000 days.
Now, he's reportedly inching close to the three-year mark with no apparent plans to break his shameful streak of negligent parenting.
Sources say Cruise justifies his abandonment of Suri through Scientologist directives that require Church members to cut ties with those who have abandoned the faith (known in CoS jargon as "suppressive persons").
Cruise refused all contact with ex-wife Katie Holmes immediately after she left the Church, and sources say he gradually distanced himself from Suri until he reached the point of having zero contact with his with his youngest daughter.
“They used to Skype and text, but that trailed off drastically,” one insider tells In Touch.
“He uses his film commitments as an excuse, but the truth is that doesn’t hold much weight with Suri anymore.”
Many who were formerly close to Cruise speculate that he was eager to remove Holmes from his life, and his relationship with Suri was simply collateral damage.
It seems there was a time when Cruise wanted 10-year-old Suri to be "reformed" by attending a school for Scientologist children.
Not surprisingly, Katie doesn't want her daughter to have anything to do with the Church.
As a result, Scientologist leader David Miscavige reportedly gave Cruise all of the justification that he needed to cut off contact with his daughter.
“Tom eats, breathes and sleeps Scientology,” one insider states.
“He’s disconnected from Katie, and then de facto from Suri, because of her connection to Katie. He hasn’t seen her since she was 7.”
"Miscavige would have hammered home to Tom that Suri has been infiltrated by a bad Thetan,” says former Scientologist and Cruise associate Gary Morehead.
Cruise has yet to respond to claims that he's abandoned he's not longer a part of his daughter's life.
If eyes are said to be windows to the soul, a smile must mean something just as poetic, right? When people are asked what the first thing they notice about a person is, 37 percent say they notice a smile first, 33 percent say they notice your eyes, 15 percent judge you by your weight, 9 percent judge the way your hair looks, and a whopping 2 percent notice your nose.
Kind of funny to realize that only 2 percent of people even notice your nose, yet this is one of the most talked about things in regards to celebrities and the work that they get done. The nose is not even close being to the only thing that celebrities get altered on their bodies.
In any case, it will probably not come as a surprise that most celebrities in Hollywood have have some serious work done on their smiles. Apparently 77 percent of women think that bad or crooked teeth are worse than balding men, so it goes to show that people put a lot of weight on a smile. It makes sense. When you see perfection, nothing else measures up.
Here are the best examples of celebrities who went from more than a little crooked to straight, and are now lighting up the world with their perfect smiles.
The Man With the Perfect Voice to Go With His Smile
There is no doubt that this man is a fan favorite. Any time he makes an appearance, people go wild and the movie almost instantly receives better ratings and success because of him. People recognize his voice from everyone else. The man is none other than Morgan Freeman.
Funny enough, he got quite a late start in the acting business. His breakout role was in the movie Driving Miss Daisy. Freeman had some less than pretty looking teeth, before. As his fame grew, he decided to whiten his teeth and have the gap removed. Freeman now looks better than ever, and can go on charming audiences with his beautiful teeth and inspiring voice for years to come.
A Plastic Face and a Plastic Smile?
There are rumors that Tom Cruise had plastic surgery. I mean, look at these photos…he was not super good looking when he was younger. It’s like he went into the cocoon an ugly caterpillar and emerged a beautiful butterfly. Puberty can work wonders, but it doesn’t work THAT well.
While the plastic surgery rumors are not known to be true, there is no doubt that Cruise did have work done on that smile. Thank God.
If you ask any dentist, they can tell you that a majority of the stars in Hollywood have had work done or have altogether fake smiles. They’re called veneers. In any case, they all look perfect and the rest of the world is sitting here looking very sad in comparison. Luckily enough, the general public can afford to have beautiful teeth, too. It’s never too late to make a beautiful smile.
Watch Leah Remini Tearfully Respond To Katie Holmes’ Statement, Saying They’re Both ‘Back To Being Human’ After Leaving Scientology!
This was very inneresting!
Leah Remini joined Good Morning America on Monday to talk more about her much-discussed upcoming tell-all memoir about growing up in Scientology.
As we reported over the weekend, Remini's book Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology -- which will be released to the public on Tuesday -- details various accounts of goings-on within Scientology, including the wedding of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.
Now, Remini is speaking out even more, calling Scientology an "extremist" religion, and responding directly to Katie's statement wishing her well, saying:
"It's really because we both left that we're able to have this kind of grace towards each other because we're back to being human."
Ch-ch-check out the video with Remini discussing more of her book and experiences in the church (below):
Wow. At least it sounds like Leah and Katie are doing somewhat better -- and on better terms with each other, if and when they can reconcile!
What do U think of this whole Scientology controversy??
[Image via Good Morning America/ABC.]
What the WHAT?!
On Friday, Leah Remini opened up to ABC's 20/20 about her tumultuous relationship with the Church Of Scientology.
To see the video, ch-ch-check it out (above)!
Scientology has more than a fair few of critics and detractors. The controversial, high-profile religion has been called a cult on numerous occasions, and for good reason. It’s only when Scientology’s high-profile, celebrity members leave the church that they’re able to truly share their experiences, which are often borderline abusive.
Leah Remini, TV actor of “King of Queens” fame, is one of those A-list members. She was a member of the Church of Scientology for 30 years, brought into the church by her mother since she was extremely young. Leah left the Church in 2013, because worshipping at the church every day left her so little time with her family.
Since leaving the Church, Remini has said, her eyes have been opened to the true nature of membership. In a new interview on “20/20″ set to air on October 30, Remini talks at length about the dark side of the Church, including criticism of its most famous member, Tom Cruise himself.
Watch the short teaser trailer below:
In the video, Remini says, “I think that people need to understand, this has been my whole life.”
Earlier this year, Remini revealed much of her reasons for leaving the Church of Scientology. She said her “a-ha moment” was when she witnessed her daughter swimming for the first time, without ever having taught her or even knowing she could swim at all.
‘I don’t think people know the amount of dedication it takes to be in this organization. I mean it was every day, three-and-a-half hours minimum, seven days a week usually. You know, I’m working most of my time, and then the other time was spent at the church, so minimal time is really spent with your family.”
In the short video above, Remini also fires at Tom Cruise: “Being critical of Tom Cruise is being critical of Scientology itself. You are evil.” Cruise is the undeniable poster boy for Scientology; his involvement in the church has always been his defining attribute, to the detriment of both his career and his marriages. Remini’s comments against the church’s most active and famous proponent is to attack the church itself, an action that, as we’ve seen, Scientologists don’t take lightly.
Remini’s interview comes ahead of her new book about the same topic, entitled Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, to be released on November 3rd of this year.
In that memoir, Remini goes deep into her Scientology roots, the way it has shaped her life for good and bad, and the largely negative experiences she had in her three decades in the church. She describes a particularly harrowing three-month “interrogation” she was subjected to that sounds like straight-up abuse.
Doubtless her memoir and the “20/20″ interview will provide even deeper insight into this shadowy organization.
The post Leah Remini Talks Life After Scientology, Criticizes Tom Cruise [WATCH] appeared first on PopCrunch.
After Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise divorced because of Cruise's obsession with Scientology, Katie landed more the $400,000 a year in child support from Tom.
And now, years after their divorce settlement, Katie is threatening to take Tom back to court for more child support money.
We aren’t sure why Katie needs more money to support their 9-year-old daughter Suri. But we do think this could be a way of punishing Tom for not seeing his daughter for more than two years.
According to an insider who dished the details to Life & Style Magazine, “She’s going to ask that the $400,000 a year in support she currently gets be amended to a higher amount.”
The source added, “While Katie’s taking every acting job that comes her way, she doesn’t have the ability to keep her and Suri living the lifestyle that Tom’s fortune allowed.”
More money is needed to keep up with Suri’s lifestyle the source said: “There’s also the fact that Suri is getting older and needs more money to travel back and forth across the country with Katie, as well as for her dance, skating and music lessons, new clothes, arts and crafts, and tutors.”
The insider stated that Suri’s “needs will only grow exponentially over the next few years” and that Holmes is “preparing … to make sure she gets the money she needs.”
Will this be a wake-up call for Tom? Will he be reminded that he needs to support and see his daughter?
In August, rumors claimed Tom saw his daughter for the first time in two years and that he was attempting to build a relationship with her. However, the newest gossip suggests otherwise.
Cruise blames his work commitments, citing that they prevent him from seeing Suri. He spends most of his time in London, while Suri is in New York and Los Angeles.
Holmes isn’t accepting any excuses though. According to the insider, she is ready to put up a fight. “She’s grown a lot tougher since splitting from Tom. The marriage was suffocating her, but she’s no longer afraid,” the source dished.
Like most people, Katie feels that life without Tom is no big deal. In fact, life without Tom is probably better!
She just wants him to take care of their daughter. Holmes “would be fine if she never saw Tom again, but taking proper care of his daughter financially is another matter,” the source reassured.
South Park has been satirizing the media for nearly two decades, and creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone plan on kicking off Season 19 with 2015's hottest topic -- Caitlyn Jenner!
Comedy Central was pretty vague in revealing just how the show would handle the reality star's public transition, teasing only that "the boys express their utmost respect" for the Olympian.
We're sure the long running animated series will have no qualms about poking fun at the former Olympian, as it hasn't held back making fun of other celebs like Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie, and Kanye West!
But will it be tasteful? Or transphobic?
As for what actually goes down in the episode, the cable network did reveal:
"There is a new principal at the helm of South Park Elementary. He forces the boys to confront the damage they've done through their history of racism and unconscious bias. It is the most stunning and brave South Park ever."
It's not clear how Jenner will tie in just yet, but she isn't the only celeb in the line of fire -- in the sneak peek clip (below), Tom Brady gets roasted for his #Deflategate scandal!
Check out the episode Wednesday night at 10pm ET on Comedy Central!
Two Dead After Plane Carrying Crew Members From Tom Cruise’s New Movie Mena Crashes Into The Andes Mountains
What truly awful news.
Three men were flying back to Colombia after production had wrapped on Tom Cruise's new film Mena when severe weather caused their plane to crash into the Andes Mountains.
Unfortunately, Venezuelan pilot Carlos Berl and American pilot Alan D. Purwin died in the accident on Friday.
Alan was a rather experienced pilot, having worked with Tom on Tropic Thunder as well as a number of other Hollywood films like Pearl Harbor, Armageddon, and Transformers.
There is some silver lining to the tragedy, however, because the third man on board, pilot Jimmy Lee Garland, luckily survived the crash and is currently at a local hospital in Medellin recovering from his injuries.
It's also being reported that Tom himself narrowly avoided the weather issues having flown the identical path a mere 10 minutes before the downed plane.
Our thoughts are with the friends and families of all those involved.
Rest in peace, Alan and Carlos.

Oops! Their hilarious bad!
Over the years, a number of big-time celebrities have found themselves in a number of compromising positions.
From their spray tans dripping down their legs at the wrong time to their lunch being lost on stage, here's a rundown of the most embarrassing moments in Hollywood history...
1. Mo Hair for Mo'Nique
2. If It's Brown, She's Letting It Down
3. Justin Bieber Vomits
4. Down Goes J. Law!
5. Anne Hatha-WHOA!

Jimmy Fallon‘s antics never seem to get old… and Tom Cruise is the latest actor to join in his shenanigans!
As part of his promotions for “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” the fifth installment of the well-known film franchise, Tom visited “The Tonight Show,” prepared to lip-sync his heart out!
He started out with The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face,” but kicked into overdrive come Meatloaf’s “Paradise by the Dashboard Light.”
“…I’m going back to high school, the parking lot on Friday night. The Jersey girls would sing all the lyrics and the guys would just sit there and sweat, hearts pounding. This is for all those Jersey girls and those hot summer nights,” Cruise dedicates.
Yep, still got that swagger.
More Tom here!

Tom Cruise is currently promoting Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (alternate title : Holy Sh-t, Another One?!), and as usual, he's all over the airwaves humblebragging about what a badass stuntman he is because of thetans or whatever.
One thing Tom's not doing, however, is talking up the movie's female lead, Swedish actress Rebecca Ferguson.
Usually, Tom gushes about his leading ladies every chance that he gets, but this time he won't even pose on the red carpet with Ferguson.
The whole awkward press tour has left many wondering if there's some truth to the rumors about Cruise trying and failing to preach the Gospel of Xenu to his sexy co-star.
Tom's controversial religious beliefs have been in the news a lot lately, partially due to the popularity of the HBO documentary Going Clear, and partially due to some bizarre new rumors about Cruise's personal life.
One report claims that Cruise recently banished his 14-year-old niece from his life for violating Scientologist doctrine by kissing a boy.
Some sources say Ferguson made the shortlist of potential Cruise suitors, but when Tom rolled up on with with his 1,000-kilowatt smile and a copy of Dianetics, she wanted none of it.
The Daily Mail even claims that Cruise handpicked Ferguson for the role in hopes of making her one of Hubbard's Honeys, and he flew into a rage when she rejected his advances.
There was a time when such boldness might have led to Ferguson being blacklisted in Hollywood, but Cruise doesn't have quite that much clout these days.
In fact, all you have to do to thwart him is put something on a high shelf and hide the stepladder.
Well, Tom Cruise is apparently seeing fault in Scientology and in other news, pigs develop flight.
Even the catered-to, poster boy of the wacko “religion” is starting to notice, “hey, this is batshit insane,” joining nearly everyone else in the world. This alleged questioning stems from an insider’s statement to Star magazine where he talks about missing Suri’s ballet performances. Via Hollywood Life:
“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. 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.”
Now, if you are unfamiliar with the crazies associated with Scientology and why they would ban a father, their main show-off “Scientology is noooormal!” person from his young daughter, it’s because Katie is a “suppressive person” (aka a normal person who agrees Scientology is crazy pants) and she is raising their daughter out of the church.
“Tom has been under tremendous pressure where Suri and Katie are concerned because the church doesn’t want him close to them. They can’t stand that their own poster boy isn’t raising his child in the church. If they label Suri a suppressive person (a Scientology term for an enemy of the church), as they’ve been known to do with dissenters, that would make it hard for Tom to have a relationship with her. He’s between a rock and a hard place, but he’s finally making a choice to put his daughter first.”
Said the source, but what bells and whistles will they give Cruise to keep his unsymmetrical teeth in the crazy cult? Maybe they’ll just think up a really clever way to get what they want out of their rules, I mean, the church has plenty of lawyers and the fundamentalist Christians had a good run with the Old Testament. There’s hope!
Or perhaps Cruise is hearing the public’s feelings of the HBO documentary Going Clear and he’s finally realizing he’s in a different religion than those around him and they’re pretty much using him to look less crazy. Good thing they’ll still have Travolta, now that’s who you hire to make something look not laughable!
‘Jerry Maguire’s Jonathan Lipnicki Wishes A Happy Father’s Day To Tom Cruise’s Iconic Character [Watch]
Jerry Maguire gave us a number of memorable lines and moments and has been hailed as one of the greatest sports movies of all time as well as romantic comedies, but one thing that was also special about it was Jerry Maguire’s relationship with the young boy.
The young boy in the film, Ray, was played by Jonathan Lipnicki and shared some incredibly cute moments with the film’s star and won over the hearts of everyone who saw the film.
In a segment called Dads Of Our Lives with ScreenJunkies, Lipnicki shared a special message for the man who played a father figure to his character in the 1996 film. He thanks him for everything that he did for him, showing how much Tom Cruise’s character meant to not only his character, but himself as well.
Jerry Maguire‘s Jonathan Lipnicki hasn’t done much in the film industry since the release of Jerry Maguire, but as he explains in the video, he is a competitive Brazilian jujitsu fighter now and that he is a purple belt, referring to himself as J. Lip.
At one point during the video, he even references the classic Jerry Maguire line when saying “You complete me, Jerry. Sure you weren’t my real dad, but, you loved me anyway.” He continues to show footage of himself from the film and talks about how adorable he was as people have talked about for years.
Like many child stars, Lipnicki has been forgotten over the years by most film fans, and it seems that he will be forever known as “the kid from Jerry Maguire.” In addition to playing Renee Zellweger’s son in the film, he has also appeared in The Little Vampire, Like Mike, Stuart Little and Stuart Little 2, among others.
Jerry Maguire‘s Jonathan Lipnicki was known for his cute glasses, his hair and several fun facts that we might not know otherwise such as the human head weighing 8 pounds. He also lets director Cameron Crowe know that if he ever wants to cast him again that he can find him on Twitter at the end of the video in a fun and teasing way.

There's no love for Tom Cruise these days.
A lady friend.
According to Life and Style Magazine, the Church of Scientology is trying to lure some unlucky lady to be Cruise's next wife.
The tabloid publication claims that Cruise is on the prowl for wifey number four to repair his increasingly damaged reputation.
Odd that the controversial religious group would lead the way, since many feel Tom’s association with Scientology mangled his celebrity stature.
His high-profile marriage to Katie Holmes brought forth negative attention and rumors about Scientology’s questionable belief and value system.
And what’s a better way for Tom and the church to fix its reputation?
With another weird marriage, of course.
A source claims that Scientology matchmakers (yes they really exist) are designing a plan to find Tommy’s new wife.
If that wasn’t weird enough, they will be training the wife-candidates to be suitable for their leading man (this is as weird as it gets).
The top candidate will be shorter than Tom Cruise (they must be looking for a little person), beautiful, and smart.
She will graduate from the program and get to marry Cruise in some freaky Scientology wedding where everyone will probably drink the Kool-Aid.
Scientology has been accused of setting up the movie star before.
In the recent documentary Going Clear, former scientology members claim that Tom was set up with ex-girlfriend, Nazanin Boniadi.
Boniadi sold a record number of Scientology books before the church promoted her to celeb status and hooked her up with Cruise.
Rather than a coincidence, that was probably Boniadi's prize.
Is it just us... or do Hollywood stars and their smiles make you want to put down the coffee and run to the nearest drug store for some Crest White Strips?
