David Miscavige’s alleged indiscretions with audit reports of high-profile Scientologists.

Katie Holmes’s pre-nuptial agreement with Cruise, negotiated by her father, Martin, a divorce lawyer, reportedly filled five Bankers Boxes; 4. Martin Holmes’s concerns about keeping his daughter from Scientology’s clutches before Suri was born; 5. Why Cruise and Nicole Kidman’s children, Bella and Connor, were estranged from their mother.
