Tom Cruise has reportedly been secretly videotaped by a Scientology 'Auditor'. According to Radar Online, Marty Rathbun, a former Scientologist, was entrusted with the job of 'auditing' the actor. Scientology leader David Miscavige allegedly then used the secret videotapes of Cruise's "confessionals" to entertain his friends. Rathbun revealed on his blog that the highly sensitive sessions took place as Cruise was going through his split from actress Nicole Kidman. Rathbun has claimed that he stopped the videotaping in February 2002 because he found it to be "unethical".
