A relatively unknown actress by the name of Yolanda Pecoraro is reportedly Tom Cruise’s most recent lady friend since it was announced he and wife Katie Holmes are divorcing.
According to RadarOnline, the 27-year-old Nicaraguan-Italian actress is a devout Scientologist, something Holmes was not until hooking up with Cruise.
Pecoraro is said to be the daughter of fellow Scientologists and began taking Scientology courses at the age of 13.
Should the rumors of their relationship be true, this would not be the first time they’ve been linked. In 2004, the pair reportedly met at the opening of a new Scientology center in Spain and were also spotted with former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham and the head of the Church of Scientology, David Miscavige, at a soccer match in Madrid a month later.
Though Pecoraro has shot back at claims she is engaged or married, she has confirmed that she has known Cruise for years. And while she is said to be living with a boyfriend right now, he status in the church has so-called insiders moving to make her the next Mrs. Tom Cruise as part of damage control.
A source told the National Enquirer, “They also want to show that Tom has rebounded fast and that his new wife is beautiful and steeped in Scientology. If the church decides to make Yolanda Tom’s next wife, they’d certainly want her to have a child soon. So she could quickly be going from her modest apartment to a mansion in Beverly Hills with a baby on the way. And there’s little doubt she’d do what’s best for the church.”
So what do you think? Is Tom getting a bit of Latin fever?
Also, what do you think about the fact that all three of Tom’s marriages (Mimi Rogers, Nicole Kidman, and Katie Holmes) ended when the ladies (all actresses) were 33?
