Scientology forbid kids to see Nicole

Los Angeles - The Church of Scientology are facing the stark accusations of turning Nicole Kidman's children against her.

The actress' son Conor was just six and his sister Isabella was eight at that time when Nicole divorced their father Tom Cruise in 2001. The kids have lived with him ever since.

While Isabella recently claimed to have a good relationship with her mother, it has been alleged Tom's controversial religion stopped them from seeing her.

Nicole did not want to deal in Scientology

Former Scientologist Marty Rathbun claims in an article in the October issue of Vanity Fair that the central problem in the marriage was the fact that Nicole did not want to deal with Scientology.

Another former Scientologist John Brousseau added to that saying: "They (the children) rejected Nicole - they'd been instructed to do so. They took a course called P.T.S./S.P (Potential Trouble Source/Suppressive Person) for persons connected in their lives who are a suppressive person according to Scientologists."

Meanwhile Brousseau also claimed all Scientologists were warned against Nicole and banned from seeing her movies. He added: "The Scientology-world hated Nicole. People were mandated to see every freaking Tom Cruise movie that came out. But if you ever mentioned an inkling to see a movie with Nicole, you'd hear about it."

According to CNN Tom's attorney, Bert Fields has ridiculed the article's claims saying: "Vanity Fair's story is essentially a rehash of tired old lies previously run in the supermarket tabloids, quoting the same bogus 'sources. It's long, boring and false."
