    Default Aussie billionaire James Packer quits Scientology

    Oh dear, another of Tom's "amazing" friends has seen the light.


    Looks like some of the Scientology cash flow may have just dried up.

    Yep, one of the cult, er religion's, richest members, James Packer, has decided to distance himself from the group.

    The timing couldn't be better for his wife Erica, who it seems will now be able to scream and yell as loud as she wants when she goes into labor next month.


    Still on the silent front, and pal Tom Cruise must be seething on the inside, after introducing his pal to Scientology way back in 2002.

    Apparently, our Aussie billionaire feels he no longer "needs it."

    Friends however, claim that James' growing casino empire might have had something to do with him leaving.

    Scientologists believe "an obsessive gambler is a psychotic just like a drug addict or an alcoholic."

    Sure.

    Sounds like a reason to me.

    Owning a casino empire doesn't equal being a gambler or having a gambling problem.

    He probably realized that the Cos were only out to fleece him.

    They have a term for it. It's R2-45.
