Los Angeles - Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's daughter is reportedly joining the Church of Scientology's controversial division, Sea Org.
Isabella Cruise, 19, apparently announced the decision on her social-networking website page.
The Village Voice newspaper reports: ''Isabella announced on a private Facebook page this week that her boyfriend Eddie Frencher signed Scientology's billion-year Sea Org contract about a week ago and is now going through its Estates Project Force boot camp in Los Angeles...
"Former Sea Org executives tell us that Isabella would be under intense pressure to join the hardcore Scientology organisation herself or be forced to give up her relationship with Frencher."
In 1966, L Ron Hubbard stepped down as executive director of Scientology to devote himself to research and writing, and went on to form the Sea Organisation, an elite group within Scientology that was based on three ships, the Diana, the Athena, and the Apollo.
According to reports, Sea Org members routinely work 100-hour weeks, for $50 a week, and have no contact with family or friends outside of the organisation.
Representatives for Tom have denied that Isabella is signing up to Sea Org, stating: "[Isabella is] not a public figure and deserves privacy. However, she is not joining the church's religious order."
