Tommy Davis


The answer to the above question is no. From the outside looking in, it appears that high-ranking Scientologist Tommy Davis DID do billionaire James Packer a favor by influencing him to dump his spendthrift fiancée Mariah Carey. Back in the early 2000s, Packer’s life was a disaster and Tom Cruise stepped in to help. (Tommy Davis was Cruise’s Scientology “handler” at the time.) They helped solve Packer’s problems (we’d LOVE to know HOW!) and pulled the billionaire into Scientology where he lasted for five years. Packer drifted from Scientology, but he was so impressed with Tommy Davis that he gave him a vague job “managing his investments” in the USA. Not long ago Davis pointed out to Packer that his fiancée Mariah was spending absurd amounts of his money. Packer ended the engagement and Mariah is blaming Tommy Davis for the split. Did Tommy do Packer A FAVOR when he disengaged the couple? Probably yes. BUT, and this is a BIG but, now Packer is ripe to be drawn back into Scientology, so that’s the horrible downside.

Here’s a juicy piece of Scientology gossip: Anne Archer’s son Tommy Davis is famous for being head of the Los Angeles Celebrity Centre and an official Scientology spokesperson – very high ranking. He was known among journalists for evading important issues and playing dumb about strange church practices. Until 2011, that is. Then he abruptly LEFT his Scientology position and DISAPPEARED for two years! His wife Jessica had also been a high ranking spokesperson for Scientology, and she left when Tommy did. (Jessica was Katie Holmes’ “constant companion” when she first married Tom Cruise.) We’re dying to know what happened. It turns out Tommy and Jessica have been quietly hiding out in Austin, Texas, where he works for a private equity firm and she is a realtor. Will he ever tell his story?


If you’ve been watching Anderson Cooper’s Scientology investigation on CNN, you might be wondering who this Tommy Davis person is who has assumed the role of spokesperson for Scientology. (Scientology leader David Miscavige has repeatedly refused to appear in person to defend the church – some say he is avoiding being served with a warrant.) Tommy happens to be the son of actress Anne Archer, a Scientologist for over thirty years. He was Scientology educated (which is very limited) and his family became so wealthy in real estate that he once said “I never have to work a day in my life.” Since the church is so heavily invested in real estate (with no property taxes!) we figure there’s a connection there. Anyway, Tommy’s former friends who left the church, actor Jason Beghe and director Paul Haggis, both called him a “liar” when David denied the existence of “disconnection” – the splitting up of families to shun critics of the church. In fact, it looks like he’s not telling the truth about a lot of things. Watch the final segment tonight or catch up on the CNN website.
