Tom Cruise rejects “diagnosis” from Dr. Drew as Nazi garbage


cruise-and-holmes.jpgTom Cruise is no fan of psychiatry so he wasn’t too happy to get an unsolicited diagnosis from celebrity doctor Drew Pinsky — or so said his representative who compared the diagnosis to the “garbage” of the Nazis.

Pinsky, who hosts the nationally syndicated radio program “Loveline” and appears on cable TV on the VH1 reality show “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew,” was interviewed for the July issue of Playboy, and wondered aloud why Cruise was ”drawn into a cultish kind of environment like Scientology.”

“To me, that’s a function of a very deep emptiness and suggests serious neglect in childhood — maybe some abuse, but mostly neglect,” Pinsky said.

That did not please Cruise, and the actor’s lawyer, Bert Fields, told the New York Post that Pinsky sounded like a Nazi.
