(Jan. 6) - From the infamous biographer who has chronicled the lives of Princess Diana and Monica Lewinsky, among others, comes a new book about Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise .
Perhaps the most bizarre of Morton's allegations is that sperm from Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, left, may have been used to inseminate Cruise's wife Katie Holmes, and gave birth to Suri Cruise.
When Cruise was first wed to Nicole Kidman, Morton claims that Scientology leader David Miscavige was desperate to woo Cruise, going as far as to have a meadow of wild flowers planted for the couple to run through. But the marriage is said to have been ultimately sabotaged by the church.
Scientologists were supposedly worried that Kidman's Catholic faith and her father's work as a psychologist -- a practice Scientology frowns upon -- would compromise Cruise's belief in Scientology. The book also claims that Kidman feared her children Isabella and Connor would be kept from her by forces in the Church of Scientology.
Cruise briefly dated his 'Vanilla Sky' co-star Penelope Cruz, a relationship that worried her father, Eduardo. Fearing his daughter would be drawn into the "cult" of Scientology, Eduardo contacted "an organization devoted to helping cult members and their families" just in case.
The book claims the recruitment of soccer star David Beckham and his Spice Girl wife Victoria is Cruise's current mission for the church. This project has been in the works as far back as 2004, when Cruise took Miscavige to watch Beckham play for Real Madrid.
