Tom Cruise Feels David And Victoria Beckham Took Advantage Of Him After Refusing To Convert To Scientology

Tom befriended the Bekchams when they moved to LA in 2007, but they apparently want nothing to do with him now.

According to reports, Tom Cruise unsuccessfully attempted to convert David and Victoria Beckham to Scientology. However, a recent rumor claims that the actor still holds some animosity toward the Beckhams because of it. Tom was close to the couple when they relocated to Los Angeles in 2007, according to a source who spoke to National Enquirer. He reportedly went above and above to make them feel at home, but when things went south, Tom reportedly believed they had abused his generosity.

Tom Felt Taken Advantage of By The Beckhams When They Moved To L.A.

When they first relocated to Los Angeles, Tom handled everything for them. They stated that “he practically handed them the keys to the city.” When they became established, they threw him out after he hosted a party for them to meet all the key people.

Since their friendship broke down, the Beckhams appear to have made efforts to get in touch with Tom, but these efforts haven’t seemed to make much of an impact because the Mission: Impossible star appears to have little interest in speaking with the power couple. He’s still upset and doesn’t want to be friends again, the insider said. “David and Victoria tested the waters a while ago, but Tom ignored them — so it makes sense they haven’t invited him to anything.”

It’s not exactly clear what caused David and Victoria to put distance between themselves and Tom, but it may have something to do with a recent claim that Tom was keen on converting the couple to Scientology.

The Beckhams Fell Out With Tom Cruise After He Tried Converting Them

A claim made by Mike Rinder in his book A Billion Years: My Escape From a Life in the Highest Ranks of Scientology that Cruise made a number of significant promises to the Beckhams in an effort to convert them to the religion went viral earlier this month. Former senior Scientology official Rinder talks about leaving the mystery cult in the new book. According to the former scientist, Cruise promised David Beckham that he would assist in building a stadium at the Church’s headquarters in California, implying that a specialized training facility would be a great asset to the soccer player’s career.

“A professional-grade soccer pitch was constructed on the property at Gold [HQ in San Jacinto],” Rinder says in the book. “The ground was leveled, irrigation installed, perfect turf, goals raised. A full-time caretaker was appointed from the Gold staff.”

“It was built for one purpose only: so Tom Cruise could woo his friend David to come to Gold. It never happened,” he continued. Rinder provided few details as to why the Beckhams eventually backed out, but they’ve clearly tried to put distance between them and Cruise as well as Scientology in the years since.

While Tom has become known as one of the most famous Scientologists, his association with the religion may be dwindling, as reports have said he’s been trying to distance himself from the Church in recent years.
