Suri Cruise was left "to cry on the bathroom floor by her parents, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. At least, that's what Leah Remini claims in her new tell-all book.
According to the New York Daily News, Leah Remini, who takes on Scientology in her book Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood And Scientology, alleges that Cruise and his ex-wife left daughter Suri, who was just 7-months-old at the time, crying on the bathroom floor during a dinner that was held just prior their wedding.
According to Remini, she and several other women responded to the infants cries during the dinner. But, instead of assisting the baby, the three women just watched the baby cry.
Remini claims that she finally convinced the women to pick up the upset child from the floor, and they eventually gave her a warm bottle of milk to drink.

Remini further claims that the older children of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, Bella and Connor Cruise, never saw their mother because she was shunned by the Church of Scientology.
Remini writes that after asking if she’d seen their mother recently, Bella reportedly told her, “Not if I have a choice. Our mom is a f****** SP.” SP is a term used by Scientologists to describe an enemy of the church, and it is an acronym for Suppressive Person.
The Church Of Scientology quickly responded to Leah’s recent interview with ABC, insisting, via the Daily Mail, that the King Of Queens actress is lying.
“Leah Remini knows the truth she conveniently rewrites in her revisionist history.”
“The real story is that she desperately tried to remain a Scientologist in 2013, knowing full well she was on the verge of being expelled for refusing to abide by the high level of ethics and decency Scientologists are expected to maintain.”

“Her repeated ethical lapses and callous treatment of others led to an ecclesiastical review which resulted in her being expelled.”
“She now regurgitates the tired myths the Church has repeatedly debunked, circulated by the same tiny clique of expelled former staffers bitter at having lost the positions they enjoyed before their malfeasance and unethical conduct were uncovered.”
“Ms. Remini is now joined at the hip with this collection of deadbeats, admitted liars, self-admitted perjurers, wife beaters and worse.”
Leah Remini knew this response was coming from the church.
“I know what my former Church — how they deal with people who tell their story,” Remini said. “And so I wanted to be the one to say it.”
Neither Tom Cruise nor Katie Holmes have responded to the claims that Suri Cruise was left in a bathroom to cry when she was just a baby.
