Nazanin Boniadi is not into Scientology anymore, and she will tell you all about it—if you listen to her new rap song.
The Iranian-born actress is opening up about some of the biggest names in the organization, including her reported ex-boyfriend Tom Cruise.
In the song, which was put together by Italian producer Titziano Lugli and first posted on the website Gawker, she raps:
"But we all know how it is
This ain't no road to freedom
It's a blind alley, like Kirstie Alley
Travolta, and Cruise, but we ain't no fools"
Boniadi reportedly dated Cruise back in 2004, according to Vanity Fair. The actress was set up with Cruise by his Scientology friends when they set out to find him a new wife following his divorce from Nicole Kidman.
Boniadi and Cruise dated for a month, according to the magazine, and she even moved into his home and shared his bedroom, before the actress accidentally slighted Cruise and Scientologist head David Miscavige one too many times, at which point she was moved out, and into the Scientology Center.
The magazine reports Boniadi had fallen in love with Cruise, and was devastated when she was dumped without a word from Cruise. They say she confided in a friend at the Center, breaking her confidentiality agreement, was subsequently turned in by said friend, and then punished by being made to scrub toilets with a toothbrush and dig ditches at night.
Her lyrics in the song are the first official confirmation that she is no longer associated with the Church of Scientology.
