Tom Cruise’s Mother Dead? Church Of Scientology Involved In Disappearance?

Tom Cruise’s mother, Mary Lee South, has not been seen since Apr. 5, 2015. Her last known activity was attending an Easter brunch at the Celebrity Centre of Scientology in Los Angeles, California. The length of her absence from the public eye has raised concerns about her well-being. What is going on? What might have happened to her? Read on for more details.

The 78-year-old had been a Eucharistic minister at the Roman Catholic Church in San Marco Island, Florida for years. She then decided to join her son’s religion back in 2007, as reported by ShowBiz411. Upon joining the church, she instantly transferred to her son’s Beverly Hills mansion. Eventually, according to public records, she transferred to Belmont Village in Hollywood Heights back in November; a location near a Scientology building.


For awhile, it seemed that everything was all well and dandy until the “mysterious” disappearance. A rumor regarding South’s current predicament is currently involving the church of Scientology. The article states that the church may have kidnapped the old lady since she wanted to leave the church, as reported by Realty Today.

There is another rumor saying that the “Mission Impossible” actor’s mom has actually passed away at the age of 78. The evidence that led to this speculation is due to South’s empty apartment in Belmont Village in Hollywood Heights. However, since no death certificate has yet been filed, this story is still backed by pure speculation, as reported by Radar Online. Aside from these two grim speculations, some say that South is simply just staying under the radar and is not missing at all.

The current buzz regarding the condition Tom Cruise’s mom is said to be a by-product of the kind of celebrity news the American public craze for. It’s also said that these kinds of rumors is an example of the public’s endless fascination with Scientology, and Cruise’s loyalty to the church. Beyond all the speculations, in the end all that can be, given the lack of evidence, is that no one has seen Tom Cruise’s mom for a while, as reported by Esquire.
