Tom Cruise: Scientology is a Reason Behind Katie Holmes Divorce

Posted Friday November 8, 2013 9:34 AM GMT

During his deposition in his lawsuit against a tabloid, Tom Cruise revealed a very important piece of information from his divorce with Katie Holmes.

The “Top Gun” actor is battling the publication after claims that he abandoned his daughter Suri Cruise, suing the mag for $50 million.

During the legal battle, Tom was repeatedly asked if Katie left the marriage because of his involvement with Scientology.

According to TMZ, once the publication’s lawyer told the 51-year-old directly, “Katie Holmes left you in part to protect Suri from Scientology,” Tom responded, "Did she say that? That was one of the assertions, yes."
