Tom Cruise was once one of the world’s most loved celebrities, and even though his reputation took a beating in the last decade due to his involvement with the controversial religion, Scientology, his popularity still remained high. That could all change due to some shocking new claims by Tom’s ex-girlfriend Nazanin Boniadi, 36, who secretly dated Tom a few years ago.
According to RadarOnline, Nazanin describes Tom as unpredictable, and prone to temper tantrums and violent tendencies. The allegations are now coming to light because in January 2010,
Nazanin participated in an FBI investigation of the Church of Scientology, who was being accused of “human trafficking”. Although the names of those interviewed were to be kept confidential and names censored, one report still mentioned Nazanin by her nickname, “Naz”.
According to Nazanin, she was “auditioned” by Scientology officials to be Tom’s girlfriend, although at the time she was only told that they needed her help with a project to help Scientology. She wasn’t given any details, but she was still told to keep it top-secret. A man from the church contacted her and told her she would be awarded the “Medal of Valor”, a prestigious award given to devout Scientologists.
When Nazanin arrived in London to receive her medal, she was put through a month of security background checks, auditing, and interviews to make sure there was nothing scandalous in her background that could embarrass Tom. She was then given a contract and told if she didn’t sign it, she wouldn’t see someone important to her again.
Nazanin moved in with the actor and states that at the beginning Tom was romantic. But that quickly gave way to temper tantrums and unpredictable mood swings. When Nazanin complained about the relationship, she claims that Scientology officials screamed at her and punished her by forcing her to dig ditches in the middle of the night and scrub the tile on bathroom floors.
She was given a strict curfew and had to be escorted everywhere by Scientology officials. She was told that she couldn’t talk to anyone and if she did, she would be banned from speaking to her parents ever again. The relationship ended shortly after.
Nanazin has also left the controversial religion. Tom remains deeply engrossed in the church although his involvement has led to two divorces and being estranged from his daughter, Suri.
