Someone Made a Shroud with a Naked Picture of Tom Cruise on It
Someone made a shroud with a naked image of Tom Cruise on it. It’s got two views, front and back. Supposedly, it’s to celebrate his 25 years in the Church of Scientology, and it’s accompanied by a commemorative coin. But it’s highly unlikely that the church had anything to do with this. Because for starters, why on Earth would they? Secondly, the artist who did this is a guy named Daniel Edwards, and you’ve heard his name before. Because over the years, he’s gotten a lot of publicity for his bizarre sculptures, like Britney Spears giving birth on a bearskin rug, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez as a single, three-legged being, an Oprah sarcophagus, and, going back to Tom, Suri Cruise’s first bowel movement, in bronze.

Supposedly, things started getting physical between them while Ben and Jen were on a trial separation. And when Jennifer found out, she fired her. Ben and Christine were seen together as recently as July 17th. Ben’s rep has come out swinging, saying, quote, “All allegations of a romantic relationship are baseless and untrue. We are considering legal options.” Get more here.
