IT looks like Tom Cruise’s unlucky number is 33 - as all three of his ex-wives called it quits when they reached that very same age.
Perez Hilton dug deep into Scientology to find out what, if any importance there is to the number 33. Turns out, the first Church of Scientology was established in Phoenix, Arizona, which lies on the 33rd parallel. In numerology, the number 33 is for the ‘master teacher’ represented by the Archangel Michael. The number 33 is associated with the power of healing through love; people with the life path number 33 are totally selfless and love unconditionally.
Regardless of the positive connotations, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s divorce will not be recognised by the church of Scientology, according to church documents.
There is a belief in the church of Scientology that marital problems come from ‘withholds’ or ‘overts’ - undiscussed issues or problems.
Mrs Holmes is believed to have blind-sided her Mission Impossible star husband by initiating divorce proceedings and seeking sole custody of their daughter Suri. With sole custody of Suri, Mrs Holmes would be able to remove her daughter from the Church of Scientology despite her husband’s enthusiasm for it.
The estranged couple have been raising Suri in accordance with the doctrine of the Church of Scientology - treating her as an adult, free to make her own decisions.
‘Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children,’ a spokesperson for Cruise said. The actress cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the cause to the split. –DM
