Tom Cruise second in command of Scientology, according to a new book

Hollywood star Tom Cruise has become second in command of the controversial Church of Scientology, according to a new biography – which makes an extraordinary attack on the star by comparing his 20-month-old daughter Suri to the Devil’s child in the film Rosemary’s Baby.

According to reports, the book, an unauthorized biography written by author Andrew Morton, claims Scientology has taken over the 45-year-old actor’s life, with its officials selecting many of the staff at his Hollywood mansion.

Morton, a former biographer of the late Princess Diana alleges that the ‘Top Gun’ actor is consulted by Scientology leader David Miscavige on “every aspect of planning and policy” and is tailoring his career to fit the aims of Scientology.

Miscavige and Cruise are said to have a close relationship, and according to the book, the pair are so close, Miscavige even joined him on honeymoon in the Maldives after his wedding to Katie Holmes in 2006.

These are claims Cruise denies vehemently, and Scientology lawyers are believed to be drawing up a lawsuit seeking $100million in compensation from Morton’s publishers, St Martin’s Press.
