Possible Scientology Arranged Marriage between Tom Cruise and Yolanda Pecoraro
According to some reports, the Church of Scientology wants Tom Cruise to remarry promptly and within the faith this time.
A list of suitable spouses is being looked at in a quasi-arranged marriage which the controversial church believes would repair the public image of both Cruise and the Church.
At the top of the list is 27-year-old actress Yolanda Pecoraro. Yolanda’s mother is from Nicaragua and her father is Italian.
A former member of the church told the Enquirer that Yolanda is a “Scientology princess, perfect for Tom,” both her parents were members and that she’s been taking Scientology courses since she was just 13 years old.
The Huffington Post reports.
Yolanda lives in a modest Silver Lake, Calif. apartment and told the Enquirer, “Yes, I knew and still know Tom Cruise. And no, I’m not married or engaged.”
Cruise and Pecoraro have known each other since 2004 and have kept in touch.
It’s reported she’s a devout Scientologist and should have a compatibility of beliefs that Cruise has not had in his two prior marriages.
According to Andrew Morton’s tell-all book Tom Cruise: An Unauthorized Biography, the couple met at the opening of a Scientology center in Spain in 2004 and he fell for her immediately.
Some reports suggest Cruise has already paid for Pecoraro to attend courses at the Scientology Celebrity Centre in Hollywood, according to the National Enquirer.
“With the embarrassment his divorce has caused the church, they want to stabilize the situation quickly,” a source said.
