“Tom Cruise’s Scientology Marriages: The Secret Wife-Auditioning Process Before Katie Holmes, Revealed” reads the headline of a Vanity Fair article.
In the magazine’s October issue, special correspondent Maureen Orth claims that prior to Cruise’s relationship with Holmes, “Nazanin Boniadi, an Iranian-born, London-raised actress, was selected to date Cruise from November 2004 until January 2005.”
According to Orth’s “sources,” Boniadi was extensively “audited” before being set up with Cruise, and allegedly had to divulge “her innermost secrets and every detail of her sex life.”
She was also allegedly “told to lose her braces, her red highlights, and her boyfriend.”
After signing a confidentiality agreement, Orth claims Boniadi and Cruise began dating — but while “the first month of the relationship was bliss, by the second month Boniadi was more and more often found wanting.”
“Anything she said or did that Cruise found fault with he immediately reported to a member of the Scientology staff, and she would be audited for it,” alleges Orth.
