'Hurt' Tom Cruise won't be friends again with David Beckham and Victoria after they dumped him
Tom Cruise apparently drifted apart from David Beckham and Victoria over their refusal to join Scientology, and the ex-friends no longer speak
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Tom Cruise was "hurt" after being dumped by former pals David Beckham and Victoria Beckham and has "no intent" to see them again, according to a source.
The three had become fast friends when 'Posh' and Beckham relocated to Los Angeles in 2007 for the footballer to play for the LA Galaxy. David and Victoria were frequently photographed on nights out with Tom and his then-wife Katie Holmes.
Tom has drifted apart from David and Victoria
According to the source, Tom has drifted apart from David and Victoria, and the ex-friends no longer speak. The decision was apparently related to Tom's involvement with the Church of Scientology.
Scientology is a set of beliefs and practices founded by American author L Ron Hubbard that has grown into a global church. The Church of Scientology's core belief is that a human is an immortal, spiritual being - called a thetan - who is simply a resident in a physical body.
One of the most well-known church members and ambassadors, Tom is regarded by followers as receiving treatment that is almost divine, as reported by Mirror.
According to the source, who was speaking about Tom's previous friendship with David and Victoria, "Tom did everything for them when they first moved to LA. He practically gave them the keys to the city. He threw them a party to meet everyone important, and the moment they were established they chucked him!"
Tom Cruise 'has no intention of being friends again' with Beckham and Victoria
The source added, "He's still angry and has no intention of being friends again. David and Victoria tested the waters a while ago, but Tom ignored them — so it makes sense they haven't invited him to anything. Tom clearly thinks they should have tried harder."
They claimed that Tom "wouldn't take no for an answer" when he pushed David and Victoria to become members of Scientology. According to the source, the Beckhams felt they had "no choice but to pull away" because Tom was being so persistent. He is thought to have been "hurt" by the rejection, though.
