In a damning letter, former Scientologist Leah Remini Tom Cruises called the leaked COVID-19 outbreak "Employees: Impossible 7" staff "psychotic" and stated that it was being done for the public.
"Tom doesn't care about his crew's families; that's all for advertising," claimed Remini. "Tom doesn't believe in family values."
Remini was a member of the Church of Scientology aged 9 to 43 and resigned from office in 2013. She then won three Emmys for her documentary series on religion.
In her letter, Remini named Cruise an "abusive dictator" and wrote in part, "I would bet Tom wrote this abuse for him."
In a statement to The Wrap, the Church of Scientology said in part, "Remini is an unreliable source who attacks Scientology for advertising and money - as it has admitted."

Remini, who won an Emmy for her documentary series "Scientology and the Aftermath," wrote a letter that was posted on The Underground Bunker blog describing Cruise as an "abusive dictator."
"Tom doesn't care about his crew's families; that's all for the public. Tom doesn't believe in family values," Remini wrote in the long letter she retweeted.
"Hearing a wealthy actor with tremendous power address his crew in this way is a sign of weakness and a deeply troubled person," she continued in the letter.
"This isn't just a rant from another a-hole actor. Tom Cruise, pretending he cares, is why some have yelled him. They know this is a publicity stunt."
Insider has approached Cruise and The Church of Scientology representatives for comment.

However, in a statement to The Wrap, which also covered Remini's letter, the Church of Scientology said it "has done more than any other religious institution in promoting COVID-19 prevention efforts - in the US and around the world - long before it did Stay." At home, the Church has taken aggressive action to prevent the virus from spreading. The leader of the Church acted way ahead of the curve. "
Her testimony went on: "Remini is an unreliable source who attacks Scientology for advertising and money - as she herself admitted."
The leaked audio recording, which was released earlier this month, is said to have come after seeing employees working on a film in England stand too close together in violation of coronavirus guidelines. Cruise repeatedly threatened to lay off the employees, saying, "I call every studio, insurance company, producer at night and they look at us and use us to make their films. We're creating thousands of jobs, you mother."
The actor's reaction divided fans, with some praising Cruise for taking the virus so seriously and others berating the way he addressed his colleagues.
However, Remini speculated that Cruise was fake and considered himself a "god-like" figure without whom Hollywood could not operate.
"The reality is that everyone who works in Hollywood today is working under strict COVID guidelines," Remini wrote, according to the blog. "Everyone who works knows that. Tom Cruise doesn't dictate how films are made, even if he seems to believe it."
"This psychotic abuse only proves what many who know Tom or have worked for Tom know: He is an abusive dictator ..." Remini wrote in part.
It's not the first time Remini has targeted Cruise because of his beliefs. During a Reddit AMA in 2017, Remini was asked if Cruise was a nice guy, to which she flatly replied, "No!"
She added, "There is a public figure of the man who looks you straight in the eye and shakes hands and hugs you. He's an observant person to you and there's the person behind the mask who is a completely different person is. "
"Someone could say that we all have what we are to the public and who we are behind the scenes, but the people who are around Tom and work for Tom don't even become Scientologists say he's fiendish. " She said.
Remini wrote a bestselling treatise in 2015, entitled "Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology," which illuminated their ordeal with the Church. She then examined the Church based on her own experiences in the documentary series "Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath," which ran from 2016 to 2019. Remini won three Emmy Awards for the show.
Cruise was first associated with Scientology in 1990 at the age of 28 through his first wife, Mimi Rogers. He has been a member of the Church ever since.
In the meantime, it has been reported that several employees working on the production of Mission: Impossible 7 have quit after Cruises ranting.
