Scientology accused of turning Kidman's children against her

The Church of Scientology has been accused of turning Nicole Kidman's children against her.
The actress' son Conor was just six and his sister Isabella was eight when Nicole divorced their father Tom Cruise in 2001 and the kids have lived with him ever since and while Isabella recently claimed to have a good relationship with her mother, it has been alleged Tom's controversial religion stopped them from seeing her.
Former Scientologist Marty Rathbun told the October issue of Vanity Fair magazine: 'The central problem [in the marriage] was Nicole did not want to deal with Scientology.'
Another former Scientologist, John Brousseau, added: 'They rejected Nicole - they'd been instructed.
'They took a course, P.T.S./S.P., [Potential Trouble Source/Suppressive Person] for persons connected in their lives who are an S.P.
'[Bella and Connor] whispered to me, 'J.B., Nicole is an S.P.! Our mom's an S.P. - we hate going and seeing her.''
Meanwhile, Mr. Brousseau also claimed all Scientologists were warned against Nicole and banned from seeing her movies.
He added: 'The Scientology world hated Nicole. People were mandated to see every freaking Tom Cruise movie that came out. But if you ever mentioned an inkling to see a movie with Nicole, oh my God, you'd hear about it.'
According to CNN, Tom's attorney Bert Fields has ridiculed the article's claims, saying:'Vanity Fair's story is essentially a rehash of tired old lies previously run in the supermarket tabloids, quoting the same bogus 'sources. It's long, boring and false.'
