Per TMZ, Tom Cruise admitted that Katie Holmes left him partly because of his ties to Scientology.
Cruise sat for a deposition in his $50 million libel suit against a magazine that claimed he abandoned his daughter Suri.
In the deposition … Cruise squirmed in his chair as the lawyer for the magazine repeatedly asked if Katie fled their marriage because of the Church. Cruise hemmed and hawed, suggesting it wasn’t true, and then the lawyer asked whether “Katie Holmes left you in part to protect Suri from Scientology.”
Cruise answered: “Did she say that? That was one of the assertions, yes.”
Cruise also admitted that Suri is NOT a member of Scientology anymore.
The story that triggered the lawsuit claimed Tom abandoned his daughter. In his depo, Cruise says for the period between June 18, 2012 and Thanksgiving, 2012, he estimates he only saw Suri 10 days.
