NICOLE Kidman apparently encouraged Tom Cruise to back away from Scientology.
According to a lengthy piece by the Village Voice, the actress kept Tom away from the controversial church from 1991 to 2001, except for a few sessions in 1998.
Nicole and Tom were married from 1990–2001 and have two children together — Connor and Isabella.
“Nicole was really sour on Scientology and kept pressing Tom to stay away from Int Base,” said Marty Rathbun, formerly Scientology’s second-highest ranking executive.
“Nicole spotted David Miscavige and didn’t like what she saw. Her big issue was that Tom was becoming like Miscavige. Nicole didn’t like the relationship that was developing between them.
“She was sort of leading him away from it. I don’t think Tom did really anything from 1991 to 2001, except for a few sessions in 1998. And he hadn’t talked to Miscavige that whole period, which really drove Miscavige ape shit.”
