Tom Cruise Blacklisted Tabloids That Wrote Mean Things About Scientology
Wah, wah: Tabloids that reported on the less-flattering aspects of Scientology and Tom Cruise's relationship to the religion are getting shut out in the cold for the premiere of his latest film "Oblivion."
Cruise has developed a sizable enemy list in the media, particularly this year when his divorce from Katie Holmes shone a big ol' spotlight on the inner workings of the Church of Scientology and its relationship to their biggest star. There were reports about how Scientology helped Cruise fight his ex-wives, how the the Church held auditions for the part of Cruise's wife and the woman who failed to land the role eventually awarded to Holmes. Cruise was really unhappy about reports that involved his daughter Suri.
The tabloids that reported on the scandals that came out fast and furious this year—US Weekly, Life & Style, In Touch and The Hollywood Reporter—have been banned from the red carpet premiere of "Oblivion," according to TMZ. Cruise is apparently especially pissed at our own trade The Hollywood Reporter than ran 20 unflattering stories on Scientology stories in less than a year.
Earlier Cruise sued the publisher of Life & Style and In Touch for reporting that he'd abandoned Suri for $50 million.
