The Dredge: Tom Cruise says it's all lies about the toilets

We get our hands mucky with the best of the morning’s dirt.

EVERY MORNING, we dig through the celebrity dirt to bring you the best of it. Here’s The Dredge…

“Lies, designed to sell magazines” is how a rep for Tom Cruise described the allegations in Vanity Fair that his ex Nazanin Boniadi was forced to scrub toilets after their relationship went down the tubes. (Radar)

However former Scientologist and Oscar-winning director Paul Haggis has backed the claims, saying Boniadi was “callously punished” by church authorities. In an email to Showbiz 411, he wrote: “It wasn’t just the threats; they actually made her feel ashamed, when all she had been was human and trusting.”

Meanwhile, Katie Holmes and Suri shared a high-five. No, really. (Radar)


The Words

Whirlwind: How Spice Girls meteorologist-in-chief Geri Halliwell described her relationship with Russell Brand, saying her ideal man was “trustworthy, sweet and kind.” Brand, the man who last month held up an entire movie production for two hours until a wardrobe assistant agreed to flash her breasts at him, is yet to comment. (The Sun)

Relaxed: How Prince Harry feels wearing clothes, according to sources who observed the royal family’s Vegas correspondent at his first public appearance since, you know, that thing. “You’d never know anything had happened”, the source said. Although, this happened. (People)

Super anxious: How Jennifer Aniston feels about tying the knot, according to an ‘insider’ who said the actress and fiancé Justin Theroux will get married on Valentine’s Day. It will be held in an “amazing plateau-like area” in the back of her house. So there. (OK!)
