Despite denials and protests, J.Lo is moving closer to Scientology.
Sources say that as recently as December, Jennifer Lopez and her husband, Marc Anthony, were taking professional business meetings at Scientology's Celebrity Center in Hollywood.
Anthony is said to have taken the "purification" course, a hopped-up sauna that the
Cult Church of Scientology says "cures" all ills.
Lopez may have invested
big buck$ her soul in the IRS-sanctioned religion thanks to infertility issues and difficulties in the couple's marriage.
What's clear is that Lopez and Anthony's sudden friendship with chief celebrity Scientology
freak leader Tom Cruise is no accident. Other than belonging to the expensive, pay-as-you-go religion, Cruise and the Lopez-Anthonys would have nothing in common.
We're also told Lopez and Anthony entered Scientology with help from Angelo Pagan, the husband of King of Queens actress Leah Remini. Both Pagan and Remini have taken dozens of pricey courses in L. Ron Hubbard's creation.
This would also account as well for Remini's sudden entry into the Cruise inner circle, as witnessed by her appearance at Cruise's wedding with Katie Holmes outside Rome.
Scary stuff. Add to this group newly arrived U.K. celebs David Beckham and Victoria Beckham, and you've got a certifiable, star-studded collection of freaks.
Not to mention huge breasts, in the case of the latter.
Lopez confided in at least one friend that she "would do anything" to help her marriage. Sadly, among the couple's problems has been infertility. At 36 and with a strong desire to become a mother, J.Lo is growing impatient.
Through three marriages (Anthony, Cris Judd and Ojani Noa) and two other long-term, public relationships (Diddy and Ben Affleck), no knocking up of Jennifer has taken place - and that's a list of prospective baby daddies almost as long as the one Anna Nicole Smith was juggling!
Okay, not that long.
Scientology is notable for recruiting stars at low points in their careers or personal lives, preying on uncertainty, instability or just plain fear by promising to fix life issues. Looks like they just snared a big fish.
