Scientology expert, Margery Wakefield, has recently told reporters that Cruise’s next wife will be a member of the church. “Tom’s next marriage will be inside the church,” Wakefield said.
He also suggested that it would be Yolanda Pecoraro, known as a “Scientology princess,” who’s been taking classes since she was 13 years old.
However, it’s not the first time the 27-year-old Latin beauty has been linked to Cruise. Andrew Morton in his book “Tom Cruise: An Unauthorized Biography” mentions that Pecoraro first met Cruise at the opening of a new Scientology center in Spain in 2004 and that he fell head over heels for her.
The book also contains a proof to Morton’s information: a photo of Cruise, Pecoraro and his high-profile pals David and Victoria Beckham at a soccer game a month after the two allegedly first met, writes The Huffington Post.
Yolanda, who lives in a modest Silver Lake, Calif. Apartment, confirmed: “Yes, I knew and still know Tom Cruise. And no, I’m not married or engaged.”
Another source revealed to reporters that the actor has paid for Yolanda to attend expensive Scientology courses at the Celebrity Centre in Hollywood, reports Radar Online.
And even though Yolanda lives with a boyfriend, who also belongs to the church, an insider assures Scientologists will do whatever it takes to provide damage control to the Tom and Katie’s public divorce.
“With the embarrassment his divorce has caused the church, they want to stabilize the situation quickly,” the source said.
“They also want to show that Tom has rebounded fast and that his new wife is beautiful and steeped in Scientology. If the church decides to make Yolanda Tom’s next wife, they’d certainly want her to have a child soon.”
He continued: “So she could quickly be going from her modest apartment to a mansion in Beverly Hills with a baby on the way. And there’s little doubt she’d do what’s best for the church.”
Recent reports claim that the church isn’t pleased with the sudden amount of coverage surrounding the actor’s split from Holmes, and the related questions about the religion.
“I am not a big fan of media, but you may have glanced the news of the split between [Cruise] and Holmes and all the speculations around,” said in an e-mail Daniele Lattanzi, a member of the “Office of Special Affairs,” according to well-known Scientology detractor Marty Rathbun.
“While this is a personal matter, when people start to bring our religion into the middle and a bunch of uninformed people start to spread false datum, rumors and defame our religion it became a matter that does affect my Dynamics and I believe that affects yours as well,” Lattanzi said in an email.
Meanwhile, Cruise is still reported to be sad of the divorce. As his lawyer revealed, the Mission Impossible star will see the couple’s 6-year-old daughter, Suri, “very soon,” and is “still tremendously saddened and shocked about the divorce.”
“Tom will be seeing Suri very soon, I don’t know exactly when that will be, and I couldn’t tell you, but I do know it will be very soon,” Cruise’s lawyer added.
“Tom loves his Suri very, very much, as he does his other two children. Tom is a family man, and dedicated to his children. They are the center of his world.”
