Church of Scientology denies calling Nicole Kidman a 'gold digger'

London, Jan 11 (ANI): The Church of Scientology has vehemently denied claims that their leader David Miscavige called Nicole Kidman a gold digger who had faked her conversion to the religion.

He goes on to claim that Miscavige had described her as a "suppressive" person and was hopeful that the actor, now 50, could be "peeled away" from her.

Both the Church and Miscavige have issued a robust denial of the allegations made in 'Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood and the Prison of Belief', which will by published by Knopf on January 17 with a reported print run of 150,000 copies. (ANI)
