Lisa Marie Presley reveals why she hated actor Tom Cruise

Lisa Marie Presley revealed a few years before her death that she did not have a good relationship with Tom Cruise, one of the actors most associated with the "Scientology" sect. Elvis Presley's daughter hated the actor, or so she said, all because of the religion they were involved in.

Lisa Marie joined this powerful group when she was only nine years old. It was her mother, Priscilla, who decided to join, allegedly recruited by John Travolta's assistant, Sylvia 'Spanky' Taylor. Scientology had already tried to recruit Elvis, but he always maintained that they wanted him for his fame and money, something his daughter also believed.

In fact, Lisa Marie slammed Scientology in an interview with Tony Ortega, accusing the religion's leader, David Miscavige, of profiting from her family's fortune. Lisa Marie Presley in 2014 after leaving the sect said that:

"At 25, after I got the inheritance, they started nurturing me to be this person who was going to go out and take everybody else in. I hate Tom. I met him 20 years ago. I said no I never want to be in a room with him again."

In addition, she explained how they tried to recruit her family and friends, as was the case with her second husband, Michael Jackson.

Founded in December 1953 by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology is one of the world's newest but most popular religions. The beliefs of Scientologists are not known to the general public, and information about the religion is often contradictory.

All of this is controlled by the central authority located in the California church. Although its ideals are secret, its most famous members are not, as is the case with Tom Cruise, one of the most active.
