A few weeks ago, it was reported that Isabella Cruise’s boyfriend, Eddie Frencher, quit Scientology’s Sea Organization. This allegedly caused tension between Frencher and Bella’s father, Tom Cruise. But during Bella’s recent trip to Italy, the fallout from this Scientology no-no was apparent when French was nowhere to be seen.
Flying on RyanAir (as if she can’t afford anything else…), Bella stopped over in London before heading to Florence, Italy for her quick, summer vacation. According to Radar Online, “Bella and friends splashed in the pool, played tennis on traditional grass courts, and enjoyed an al fresco dinner with wine aplenty during their stay.”
Bella appeared to be completely oblivious to the fact that her boyfriend wasn’t present.
Cruise’s divorce from Katie Holmes placed Scientology in the spotlight like never before. There were rumors of corruption, intimidation, and blackmailing of ex-Scientologists. The cult-like church was ridiculed for its bizarre belief system, which prompted several notable Scientologists to not only leave the church, but to also reveal the truth behind Scientology’s preposterous dogma. During this time, it was widely reported by ex-Scientologists that there is no “escape” from the religion’s organizations. One such example is The Sea Organization (Sea Org) – a separate unit for the church’s most dedicated members – which forces followers to sign a “one-billion-year” contract with the church in exchange for free boarding and a weekly allowance.
The Cruise bunch managed to steer clear of the gossip rags over the past few months, but they were once again placed under the media microscope following Frencher’s departure from the church. His absence from Bella’s vacation only further solidified the alleged, underlying tension.
One flew over Tom Cruise’s nest, but unfortunately there’s no Jack Nicholson or Louise Fletcher to save him from his inevitable fate.
What do you think? Do you think Tom Cruise is forcing Eddie Frencher to stay away from his daughter? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
Editor’s Note: Eddie quits Scientology (quitting Sea Org is tantamount to quitting Scientology) and Tom freaks – Isabella quits Eddie! Isabella gets a new hairdo and makeover followed by a nice vacay with a safe group of Scientologists to get over her ex and his betrayal of the faith. That’s how I read it.
