Tom Cruise testimony in explosive lawsuit is Church's nightmare
National Enquirer|July 22, 2019

Religion’s leader accused of abuse & human trafficking!

An explosive lawsuit accusing Scientology of vile abuse has rocked the embattled church — and may force poster boy Tom Cruise to testify in court, The National ENQUIRER has learned.

Scientology bigwigs are locked in a living nightmare amid fears Cruise, who did not respond to our request for comment, may reveal damning information that could destroy the religion!

The lawsuit filed on June 18 at Los Angeles Superior Court by a Jane Doe — who is believed to be around 40 years old — claimed the church “presents a façade to the outside world to disguise what in reality is nothing more than a church built on mind control and destruction.”

Among the charges, the woman — who claimed she was born into the church but escaped in 2017 — alleged children are forced to work in “military-like conditions” and that members are subjected to “physical, verbal, psychological, emotional and/or sexual abuse and/or assault.”

She is suing church leader David Miscavige and Scientology — whose famous members include Cruise, John Travolta, his wife, Kelly Preston, and Kirstie Alley — for kidnapping, stalking, human trafficking, false imprisonment, libel, slander, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

The Church of Scientology denies all allegations of abuse.
