Katie Holmes is being dragged in Leah Remini and Tom Cruise’s alleged feud.
According to In Touch Weekly, Remini is encouraging Katie Holmes and other celebrities to expose the dirt on the actor and Scientology.
Remini will headline a new podcast called Scientology: Fair Game, which will serve as a follow-up to her explosive docuseries, Scientology and the Aftermath.
Leah Remini allegedly wants other celebrities to expose Tom Cruise
An unnamed source told the tabloid that Remini is encouraging anyone who has negative experiences with Cruise and Scientology to come forward.
“Leah knows Tom isn’t a nice guy and now she’s encouraging others in Hollywood to come forward and tell their stories about him. She knows it’s a long shot, but she’s still trying to get Katie Holmes to talk about her experience in the church,” the source said.
Will Katie Holmes follow in Thandie Newton’s footsteps?
Life & Style also published a similar story about Holmes, Cruise, and Remini. The tabloid also said that Remini was inspired by Thandie Newton. She previously revealed that she was so scared of working with the actor in Mission: Impossible 2.
Remini’s fellow whistleblower, Mike Rinder also talked about Cruise and his influence on Hollywood.
“Maybe 10, 15 years ago, Hollywood was very complicit—and that had a lot to do with the influence Tom Cruise had. He had a lot of influence through CAA, his production deals, Paramount, his lawyers, everything. People did not want to get on the bad side of Tom. Nowadays, that’s changed pretty dramatically. His luster has been dimmed and he’s no longer the world’s leading superstar. He still makes a ton of money from the Mission: Impossible franchise but other than that is pretty irrelevant. And we’re now even seeing his former leading ladies come out against him,” he said.
Katie Holmes allegedly struggling with her finances
Rumors about Katie Holmes and Cruise have also been rife throughout the past couple of years.
New Idea previously said that the Dawson’s Creek actress was desperate for cash. And Holmes is, allegedly, asking Cruise for help with her finances.
“Katie was proud of walking away from Tom without securing a hefty financial settlement. But in hindsight, that may have been a huge mistake. Katie has huge expenses, and she’s not bringing in a steady paycheck from films or TV shows right now,” the source said.
However, one should take the claims made by the tabloids with a grain of salt. Katie Holmes isn’t struggling financially, and Remini isn’t also trying to make her talk against her ex-husband.
