Tom Cruise ‘absolutely’ had Scientology audition girlfriends for him, Former Member Claims


According to a former Scientologist, the church “absolutely” auditioned women to be Tom Cruise’s girlfriend.

During an interview with Tony Ortega for his Scientology site, the Underground Bunker, former Scientologist Valerie Haney, who recently revealed her story of defecting from the group on Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, spoke about the issue.

Shelly Miscavige, the wife of church leader David Miscavige, allegedly oversaw the auditioning of partners for the organization’s star member in the mid-aughts.

Haney also described Cruise and Scientology leader David Miscavige as “worship[ping] each other“, before talking about Miscavige’s wife, Shelly, who has not appeared in public since 2007.

“Tom Cruise worships David Miscavige like a god,” Haney, who spent 22 years as a member of Scientology’s inner elite Sea Org, said of Cruise’s connection with the church’s leader. “They worshiped each other.”

Haney was asked what Shelly told her about it during her years as a member, where she worked closely with the Miscaviges. “She thought it was ridiculous,” replied Haney, who was Shelly’s personal steward. “She was just doing what Dave asked her to do. But it absolutely happened.”


Miscavige’s marriage to his wife began to disintegrate in 2005, according to Haney, when she became envious of another church worker.

“Shelly was getting sick of Dave’s lack of response to her, and of his arrogance and the way he was mistreating other people,” Haney told the outlet.

“Shelly was pi**ed off all the time. Dave was raging at everyone day after day, except for (the woman). And he had nothing for Shelly. So she was crying every night.”

Shelly was reported missing by the LAPD in 2013, when actress Leah Remini, a former Scientologist, filed a missing person report on her. The LAPD claims they’ve subsequently had “a face-to-face” with her.

Shelly is most likely in the Church of Spiritual Technology’s headquarters at Lake Arrowhead, California, Haney told

“I don’t think there’s any other place where Dave can control her like at that place. It’s super secret, and the CST workers take that seriously,” said Haney, who left the church in 2016. “I think that she is going to die there. It’s very unfortunate because she’s actually a lovely lady.”

There have long been rumors about the alleged “auditioning,” and in 2012, Vanity Fair’s Maureen Orth reported that a Scientologist named Nazanin Boniadi “was allegedly selected by officials in the organization” to be Cruise’s next girlfriend, but it didn’t work out and he ended up with Holmes, who later became his third wife. Boniadi and other actresses inside the group were informed they were auditioning for a film, according to the magazine, and sessions were taped in which they were asked questions such, “What do you think of Tom Cruise?” Former Scientologist Marc Headley told the magazine that he had viewed some of the dozens of three- to four-minute audition videotapes while he worked at Scientology’s in-house studio. A Scientology representative disputed that Miscavige was involved in Cruise’s personal life at the time.

Marc Headley, a former scientist who worked closely with Miscavige for 15 years throughout his long stint with the organization, described their relationship as “the most intense, expensive bromance in history.”

The Church of Scientology has yet to reply to a request for comment from Yahoo Entertainment on Haney’s latest interview. “The Church of Scientology stated that Valerie Haney is outright lying and making up stories, as part of her employment for Leah Remini,” they said in a statement to Fox News. A video titled “Valerie Haney: Leah Remini’s Paid Liar” was also released by the org’s Freedom Media section.
