Following reports that the 19-year-old was about to follow her boyfriend into the super-secretive ‘higher order’, her father’s reps released a statement, saying: “[Isabella is] not a public figure and deserves privacy,” they said. “However, she is not joining the church’s religious order.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Village Voice claimed that “Isabella, announced on a private Facebook page this week that her boyfriend Eddie Frencher signed Scientology’s billion-year Sea Org contract about a week ago and is now going through its Estates Project Force camp in Los Angeles… Former Sea Org executives tell us that Isabella would be under intense pressure to join the hardcore Scientology organization herself or be forced to give up her relationship with Frencher.”

In 1966, L. Ron Hubbard stepped down as executive director of Scientology to devote himself to research and writing, and went on to form the Sea Organization, an elite group within Scientology that was based on three ships, the Diana, the Athena, and the Apollo. According to reports, Sea Org members routinely work 100 hour weeks, for $50 a week, and have no contact with family or friends outside of the organization.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Isabella was unceremoniously fired from her step-mom Katie Holmes’ clothing line, Holmes and Yang, just weeks before Katie filed for divorce from Tom.
Isabella and Frencher had been living together in an apartment near downtown Los Angeles.
