Unauthorized biography of Tom Cruise sparks angry denials

"An explosive and unauthorized biography of Hollywood star Tom Cruise hit US bookshelves Tuesday, despite an angry denial of the book's most startling allegations from The Church of Scientology.

Cruise, one of the most high-profile members of the group, had no immediate comment to make on the book, according to his publicist's office, while the church described the book as "a bigoted, defamatory assault replete with lies."

Penned by British journalist and writer Andrew Morton, who lifted the lid on Princess Diana's marriage in "Diana: Her True Story," the book offers a mostly unfavorable portrait of Cruise as a calculating control freak.

The Church of Scientology, which comes across as the real subject of the book, issued a lengthy statement rebuffing some of the book's most lurid allegations and insisted Morton had not given it the right to reply.
