Tom Cruise has gone power-made from his clout in the Church of Scientology!
That's the troubling claim from her new book "Troublemaker," where the former "King of Queens" actress reveals the church's shocking inner workings that have turned a movie star into a monster!

The most shocking claim in "Troublemaker" is that Tom is far more than just a devout Scientologist. Leah — who was raised in the church — had her faith shaken by the power that Tom holds over Scientology. "I had seen behind the curtain," she wrote. "There, in the role of the great and powerful Oz, was not [founder L. Ron Hubbbard], as I had come to believe, but instead, it seemed to be Tom Cruise. Was my church falling apart? Was Tom in charge?"
The great and powerful Tom had chosen Leah to be part of his Scientology-approved circle of friends over a decade ago. That position meant that Leah was also chosen to hide Tom's most bizarre behavior— along with fellow celebrity Scientologists who counted as "heavy contributors."

Leah learned that Tom, now 53 years old, had been indulged to the point that he could pursue all kinds of "goofy ideas of fun." She was soon playing hide-and-seek in Tom's huge mansion with fellow celebs like Jada Pinkett Smith. Leah has also confirmed The ENQUIRER's reporting that friction continues between Tom, Kirstie Alley and John Travolta as Scientology's top followers. As Leah reported: "I had heard that Tom didn't like them."
Leah also revealed Tom's childish temper tantrums — including the wild-eyed actor screaming at a female assistant over cookie dough. "It was horrible to watch someone I admired come undone, and even worse to witness the fear in the assistant's eyes," recalled Leah , watching Tom scream at his help: "Get in the f---ing present time, is what you need to do!'"
Tom also went into a Scientology-inspired tantrum when he felt disrespected over a drink being handed to him. Leah claimed Tom went off another epic tantrum, screaming: "You served me tea in a chipped mug? Do you know who gets served with a mug that's chipped? F--ing DBs!" (That was a reference to the Scientology term of "Degraded Being," meaning someone possessed by so many evil Body Thetan spirits that they can be considered insane.)
Leah also provides an inside look at how Scientology leaders set up Tom with a fresh stash of brides! She claimed that her actress friend Nazanin Boniadi was recruited in 2004 as a potential wife for Tom, and was provided a new wardrobe and instructed to break up with her current boyfriend.
She was further disillusioned by Scientology after showing up to give salsa lessons to Tom, and discovered that he had abruptly given up his relationship with Nazanin to take up with Katie Holmes. "Naz had been manipulated and lied to, all in an effort to keep Tom Cruise happy," Leah wrote. "For him to have dismissed her without saying goodbye or speaking directly to her seemed beyond cruel."
Leah also claimed that Nazanin then made the mistake of talking about how she was groomed for Cruise — an act that was punishable with four months of enforced silence while the snubbed actress was ordered to perform tasks that included scrubbing toilets with toothbrushes! Nazanin and her family would later leave Scientology.
None of that could prevent Leah from attending Tom's 2006 wedding to Katie, but even that happy day ended in a disturbing manner. Leah's faith in Scientology was further shaken when she talked to Tom's older children — Bella and Connor — after the wedding. She asked if the offspring was getting to see much of their mother, Nicole Kidman. "Not if I have a choice," sneered Bella snarled, according to Leah. "Our mom is a f---ing SP." (A reference to the Scientology term "Suppressive Person," meaning someone who criticizes or defies the church, much like Leah has become now!)
