Connor Cruise, superstar actor and avid Scientologist Tom Cruise's son, is not being the best son to his father. Katrina Reyes, a former Scientology church member, said that the 23-year-old is currently being punished by the upper echelon of the order for committing serious crimes against the church.

Reyes said that Cruise is currently living in The Sandcastle, which is a hotel owned by the church right next to their headquarters in Clearwater, Florida. The crime? He was partying too much and was a wild child. According to the ex-church member, Cruise is being compelled to replace alcohol with long drawn-out hours of Scientology coursework. Reyes' mother, Yelena, is the manager of The Sandcastle. 

Reyes also told RadarOnline that her mother is also the manager of The Osceola Inn where Tom Cruise had a glamorous penthouse floor that was taylor-made for him. The former church member also said that the young Cruise is being watched around the clock by security guards at the hotel. She also said that it made sense in a way that Cruise had bodyguards to protect him but the real reason they were there was so that they could "monitor" him and also "control his every move".

Reyes has claimed that the master plan of the church is to make Cruise's son into the most "perfect scientologist". She told RadarOnline, "He’s not having a normal life, that’s for sure. They’ll have him on course and doing some auditing, he can’t go out and party and drink, and he’ll be on vitamins and juices. The only reason I’ve ever seen it happen before with someone like Connor is that he did something he wasn’t supposed to do, like interacting with everyday people, having ideas or regular thoughts of doing what he wants."

The ex-church member has also said that the young Cruise is not really in the best spot to argue his way out of the treatment because his world-famous father just so happens to be BFFs with David Miscavige, the church's current leader who was the deputy to founder L Ron Hubbard. Reyes has said that the church has plans to use Cruise as a pawn. She said, "They need to make money and need people to join the Sea Org. So second and third generation members are getting the flak and were told they need to get their s**t together."
