If Tom Cruise wants to walk down the aisle for the fourth time, he may not have to look too far, as Latin actor Yolanda Pecoraro could be the “perfect match” for the Hollywood star, according to experts.
Pecoraro is said to be a devout Scientologist and has apparently dated the 50-year-old actor in the past. It is believed that Cruise’s next wife will definitely be affiliated with the Church of Scientology.
“Tom’s next marriage will be inside the church,” the Daily Mail quoted Scientology expert Margery Wakefield as telling the National Enquirer. A former member of the church also described the brunette as a “Scientology princess” who is “perfect for Tom.”
It has also been reported that both of Yolanda’s parents were members of the church, and she has therefore been taking Scientology courses since she was a teenager.
In Andrew Morton’s unauthorised book, Tom Cruise: An Unauthorised Biography, he suggests that the pair first met at the opening of a new Scientology center in Spain back in 2004 where Cruise “fell head over heels’” for her.
Pecoraro, who currently lives in California with her boyfriend, apparently told the National Enquirer: “Yes, I knew and still know Tom Cruise. And no, I’m not married or engaged.”
Another source added that Cruise even paid for Pecoraro to attend expensive Scientology courses at the Celebrity Centre in Hollywood. Another insider claimed that the church will do whatever it takes to provide damage control to the very public divorce between Cruise and Holmes.
“With the embarrassment his divorce has caused the church, they want to stabilize the situation quickly,” the source said. “They also want to show that Tom has rebounded fast and that his new wife is beautiful and steeped in Scientology. If the church decides to make Yolanda Tom’s next wife, they’d certainly want her to have a child soon. So she could quickly be going from her modest apartment to a mansion in Beverly Hills with a baby on the way. And there’s little doubt she’d do what’s best for the church,” the source added.
