The hits keep on coming for the Church of Scientology. After a rocky year that saw Leah Remini leave the controversial organization, RadarOnline.com has learned that they could be about to lose yet another high-profile member.
According to a source close to Tom Cruise’s camp, the actor and proud Scientologist’s son, Connor Cruise, has distanced himself from the church and begun exploring other spiritual paths. And he’s currently in the desert on a “spiritual quest” doing just that!
“Connor is in Morocco right now doing some soul searching,” a source close the Cruise family tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. “He is on a spiritual journey.”
On Monday, the aspiring DJ took to his Instagram account to post a photo of himself in Morocco, along with the caption “#Simplicity #Africa #Morocco #Kasbah.”
According to the insider, this trip is no simple vacation; but rather, it’s yet another sign that he could be leaving the Church Of Scientology for good.
“Connor is no longer as interested in being a member of Scientology,” the source says.
Reports about his allegedly growing disenchantment with the church first surfaced months ago: In an interview with Woman’s Day Australia, Cruise addressed the rumors that he had an estranged relationship with his mother, Nicole Kidman, who left the church after her divorce from Cruise.
“I love my mum,” Cruise said to the magazine. “I don’t care what people say, I know that me and Mum are solid.”
Although he’s yet to make a public break from Scientology, the source tells Radar he is simply exploring his options. “Connor is just coming into his own now,” the source explained. “And he is allowed to believe whatever he wants to believe.”
Cruise, 19, and his sister Isabella, 21, are the adopted children of Cruise and Nicole Kidman, 47, who divorced Cruise in 2001.
