Tom Cruise Admitted Scientology Played Role in Split With Katie Holmes in Libel Lawsuit Against Gossip Magazines

Daughter not practicing Scientology but Cruise disputes magazine's assertion he abandoned her


Tom Cruise has admitted his devotion to Scientology may have played a part in his divorce to Katie Holmes.

During their five year marriage the actress was a practitioner of the church although as soon as the couple broke up she left—taking their daughter Suri with her.

The revelation comes as part of a 36-page disposition transcript the actor gave in his legal battle against two U.S. magazines he is suing for libel.
