Is Tom Cruise's love-affair with the Church of Scientology causing him to fail in relationships? Not only may it have caused his divorce from Katie Holmes, but it may have kept him from marrying Penelope Cruz, too.
Tabloid reports have surfaced that say that the Church of Scientology may have driven a wedge in the relationship between Tom and former girlfriend and Vanilla Sky co-star, Penelope Cruz.
"Tom had absolutely planned on proposing to Penelope, and they had openly discussed marriage during the three years they were dating," claims a tabloid source. "Tom was head over heels in love with Penelope and could see them spending the rest of their lives together...However, Penelope pulled the plug on the relationship because she felt that the Church of Scientology was the third wheel in their relationship.
Everyone knows that Tom Cruise is a little crazy about the Church of Scientology, but really? To let his passion about the church (which many see as a bit cultish) get in the way of his personal relationships? Is it possible that Tom is sabotaging his own relationships. Has he really gone this crazy... beyond "standing on a couch while visiting Oprah" crazy?
Clearly, Penelope Cruz didn't want to go down the road (the one that Katie Holmes ended up going down) being stuck inside the Scientology circles, and having a difficult time breaking out. One thing is for sure, she certainly saved herself a lot of grief and aggravation in splitting with Tom Cruise before they got married.
