Scientology has been shrouded in quite a bit of drama mostly relating to some of its celebrity followers. Tom Cruise, for example, has made headlines for his unusual behavior, which many people have chalked up to the influence of Scientology.

1. Banning his ex-wife from attending their son's wedding

In March, it was reported that Tom Cruise kept his ex-wife, Nicole Kidman, from attending the wedding of their 24-year-old son, Connor.

As Connor prepared for his wedding to his Italian girlfriend, Silvia, in a Scientologist ceremony, the Hollywood actor apparently demanded that Nicole should not be present.

A source reportedly told RadarOnline that Tom made the decision to keep Nicole away and Connor had no choice but to follow his father's decision. The insider claimed that Connor deeply respected and adored his father so there was no way he would go against the 56-year-old star's wishes.

2. He refused to see his daughter, Suri, for years

Banning Nicole from her son's wedding wasn't the first time Tom's parenting choices were called into question. UsWeekly once reported that Tom was absent from his daughter Suri's life for years because she wasn't a Scientologist.

A source told the publication that the religion itself did not ban people from seeing their children, but Tom simply chose not to.

3. He encourages his children to take lead roles in recruitment into Scientology

In a post reportedly published in the church's newsletter, Tom Cruise's 28-year-old daughter, Isabella, not only opened up about her love for Scientology but also her role in interviewing and recruiting other members.

According to Page Six, this left no doubt that Tom's kids were not only members but also promoters of the church.

4. He reportedly participates in 'punishments'

Former Scientologist Leah Remini once made a shocking revelation to the press that Tom Cruise would often participate in punishment beatings of other members of the church. While speaking to the Daily Beast, the actress said Tom was complicit in the corporal punishment that is believed to take place in the religion.

While Tom Cruise's role in these allegations is yet to be confirmed, it's safe to say that many people believe his participation in Scientology isn't such a beneficial thing for himself and his family. Do you agree?
