Marty Rathbun is a former high ranking Scientology member who left the church. He writes a really good blog about his time with the church. In one of his latest entries he says that when he was auditing Tom Cruise back in 2001 when Tom was divorcing Nicole Kidman, he was ordered to videotape the sessions by David Miscavige. He says that the sessions were recorded without Tom's knowledge but that David wanted to see exactly what was going on and that Tom's return to the church was the most important thing.
You would think the sessions would be kept secret, but, according to Rathbun, the sessions were actually shown by Miscavige at parties he would have at his house. Oh, how I would love to see those tapes.
"DM regularly held court with others in his personal lounge...while sipping scotch whiskey at the end of the night," Rathbun says. " Miscavige would read Tom's overts and withholds from my reports to others, joking and laughing about the content of Tom's confessionals."
I'm guessing this has happened with more people than just Tom. Why anyone would join this thing remains a mystery to me.
