Church of Scientology desperate to land Posh and Becks as followersMarch 10th, 2008 - 3:26 pm ICT by admin
Washington, Mar 10 (ANI): The head of the Church of Scientology is desperate to have British soccer star David Beckham and his wife Victoria as followers of the religion, a former Scientologist has claimed.
According to ex-Scientologist Marc Headley, who used to produce promotional films for the controversial religion, leader David Miscavige is very set on enlisting the famous couple.
Miscavige is going so far as to use Hollywood actor and fellow Scientologist Tom Cruise’s star power to entice the Beckhams, by having a wall of photographs of the Cruise family with the Beckhams in his office.
The Scientology leader even tried to get the L.A. Galaxy player to make a guest appearance at the Church’s Gold Base headquarters in Helmet, California, by relaying the soccer field. However, Beckham refused to take up the offer.
“Tom’s a good friend of the Beckhams. The church leader David Miscavige has literally hundreds of pictures of him with Beckham and Victoria and all the kids. They’d love to get them into the religion, Contactmusic quoted Headley as saying.
“There was talk about introducing David to Miscavige. They redid the field with the best turf you could get - just to impress him,” he added. (ANI)
