Is Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's 19-year-old daughter, Isabella, joining the Church if Scientology's ultra secretive and controversial division, Sea Org?

According to the Village Voice, "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 boot 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.

Reps for Tom Cruise have denied that Isabella is signing up to Sea Org though, stating: "Isabella is not a public figure and deserves privacy. However, she is not joining the church's religious order."

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.
