Tom Cruise and his peeps are battling another one....

So the drama around Tom Cruise just seems to never end. Once he is done with someone, another fight begins. This time around the drama is surrounding remarks made by celebrity therapist Dr. Drew Pinsky, from VH1’s Celebrity Rehab and Loveline fame. Dr. Drew was interviewed for Playboy in regards to celebrities and their kooky ways and the doc brought up Mr. Cruise for some reason. Even though Dr. Drew has never treated Tom he did go on record saying that Cruise’s erratic behavior and participation in a “cultish kind of environment ….that’s a function of a very deep emptiness and suggests serious neglect in childhood, maybe some abuse”, and I kind of have to agree. His behavior over the past few years has sent many of his fans away and the rest of us searching for the thing that set him off.

Of course Cruise’s lawyer needed to step in for his client in regards to this nearly slept on quote and released a statement saying “"He seems to be spewing the absurdity that all Scientologists are mentally ill.”, in regards to Dr. Drew. The therapist asked his representative to release a statement regarding the lawyers comments that said basically that Dr. Drew was sorry (i.e. AFRAID OF THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOOGY) and while Mr. Cruise’s reps were intending to “slander and discredit Dr. Drew, under no circumstances is Dr. Drew making a blanket diagnosis about Scientology nor Mr. Cruise, whom he does not know.” Wah wah wah.

And to prove that Mr. Cruise isn’t suffering from any delusions of grandeur. Life & Style is reporting for this week’s issue that Tom will not travel anywhere withour his bomb and bullet proofed transportation. While I can agree that Tom should have security detail, with his bank account and importance to the Hollywood community, I am not positive that he is first on anyone’s bombing list – but who knows. This seems to be another tactic though that can provide Katie Holmes with an even greater sense of being watched and “protected” by her husband. Can’t wait to hear the rumors flying when they are “living” here during her time on Broadway.
