Blind Item #2

This former A+ list mostly movie actor is having trouble making ends meet. You would think he would have a ton of cash but he has some very big expenses and hasn't been able to get the big movie paychecks he used to because of all the attention focused on him the past couple of years. Most of the money he earns comes from a place very close to him. He speaks, they pay. It's a great way to bring in new people and have them part with their money.

Tom Cruise?

Has TC slipped to 'former A +'?

libby said...

If so, alert the masses.

Cyn Choo said...

Tom Cruise

John Travolta/Scientology. I think Tom has more money than God.

Red said...

It's totally the other closeted Scientologist. This fits John Travolta way better than Tommy. The attention are the rumors surrounding him & his wife, plus his son's tragic death.

John Travolta. Running a jumbo jet ain't cheap. And you can see he is cutting back from the quality of his rugs.

I was thinking Mel Gibson.

Unknown said...

It's pricey to keep that big jet in the air. - Travolta

Also, the line "because of all the attention focused on him the past couple of years," could be referring to all the stories of him hitting on men (the masseurs, hotel employees, etc.).

Count Jerkula said...

Travolta. Has he done anything since the masseur stuff.

Meanie Rhysie said...

I was thinking Mel Gibson.

crapbag said...

This is Mel. The place close to him is his church that he runs.

John travolta is paid by Scientology?

VIPblonde said...

Definitely Travolta

Harry Knuckles said...

Don't think it's Mel. At the time of his divorce he had a net worth of around $800M. I don't know how much of that he had to cough up, but still ...

katie said...

me too. speaking at his Spanish Inquisitional church.

katie said...

probably skipping breakfast now :)

Now! said...

Mel's sins are more than a couple of years old.

Felicia said...

Big expenses could also be paying off all the gay masseurs who were groped/etc. by him rather than going to court. I think that's a piece pointing to JTrav.

Notorious W.i.g. said...

Count Jerkula, other than men? No.

Meanie Rhysie said...

I guess my phone really, really, really liked my Mel guess! lol

But I change my mind to The Revolting One.

trudi said...

It's only a matter of time before Travolta is a contestant on "Dancing With the Stars"

LucasH said...

Travolta is my guess too. Lots of negative press. Cruise is doing just fine.

Kelly said...

Travolta.

Unknown said...

My first thought was Nicholas Cage since at one point he was in debts.

D Brown said...

Mel closed his church in 2010. I think it still exists but stopped having services.

Cruise/Scientology

crila16 said...

...or maybe Travolta.

ms snarky said...

Mel, with his income being his private crazy church.

sarah.estell said...

I think this is definitely Travolta. Big expenses such as payoffs to men in lawsuits. I'm sure Kelly Preston's beard salary doesn't come cheap either. He's been doing some speaking on behalf of Scientology. And it wouldn't surprise me a bit if Scientology is paying him. I would think they have a bit of a mutual detente going.

MrPresident said...

its not TCruise...according to forbes he was the highest paid actor the other year

NovaNightly said...

I was thinking it's Mel and his church....he could easily go to them and speak about whatever malarkey he can think of and they will throw their cash at him. It's an exclusive church that I am sure is filled with rich idiots. John Travolta still has his wife and is still making movies and commercials and such. Nothing from Mel at the moment and everyone hates him.

Unknown said...

Not Mel - Mel is working as an actor in Expendables 3 which is either started filming or will be and he has a number of interesting projects in development. Even after 2 divorces he's got lots of moola, don't forget he also has Icon Productions which is a successful production company.

Mel's church is for ultra conservative Catholics and quite frankly Mel is no longer the poster boy for ultra conservative Catholics after two divorces and apparently convincing his father to divorce his evil step mother.

Don't forget that Oksana blew it, she was offered a lot more to settle the divorce, played her game with the tapes, took it to court and the judge only gave her $750,000 - that chump change to Mel.

Unknown said...

Not everyone apparently hates him. Sylvestor Stallone sought him out for Expendables 3 and it is being produced by Millennium run by Avi Lerner, an Israelis, who apparently has no issues working with Mel. Lots of people including those who are Jewish want to work with him as a director/producer which is where the money is anyway. Which is really no different for Mel before his public humiliations. If Mel wants to act he just gives himself a role.

Unknown said...

read this as travolta. he has an aiport for a house

Unknown said...

mel should have money enough to last him several lifetimes

Unknown said...

Between Scientology, the payouts to hide his exploits probably for decades and/ or settle lawsuit and that airplane or airplanes if he has more than one all had to cost a lot of money along with the lifestyle and not like Kelly is pulling in any huge paychecks, besides she is probably getting paid for being the dutiful wife/beard.

Travolta

Frufra said...

Best. Travolta. Picture. Ever. My absolute favorite. Thanks, VIP :-).

evie2345 said...

I agree with the Travolta guesses. He isn't working very much, and no recent high profile roles- and given all the bad publicity, no real big prospects either.
Scientology always seemed like a tax shelter for those guys, I wonder if they are mad at him for the scandals and not taking care of his bills so much anymore?

NaughtyNurse said...

John Travolta recruiting for CofS.

Secondbecky said...

Ditto

Unknown said...

My husband recently interviewed for a job w/ Bombardier in Montreal and they told him that John Travolta was the spokesperson (or some such nonsense) for one of their jets (or maybe it was for all their jets, not sure). So if he's peddling jets for a company he may be hard up for cash.
