Kyle Sandilands claims ‘Scientologists locked him up and Tom Cruise’s son spoke to him during a visit to the church’s Celebrity Center in LA’

Kyle Sandilands has spoken about his experience of visiting the Church of Scientology’s Celebrity Center in Los Angeles.

The 49-year-old radio host was discussing Backstreet Boy AJ McLean’s encounter with Scientology on Thursday when he revealed he’d also had a similar experience.

Kyle told his co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson that he’d visited the Scientology centre during a trip to LA years ago.

After touring the centre, he was taken to a media room and invited to watch a short film.

‘If you are lost as a human, and you watch the movie then you’ll feel like you’re in the right place,’ he said on The Kyle and Jackie O Show.

Once the video ended, Kyle claimed he went to open the door because he wanted to leave, but the door was locked.

‘And guess who opened it: Connor Cruise,’ he said, referring to the adopted son of Hollywood actor and high-profile Scientologist Tom Cruise.

‘Then he sat down with me and chatted. I just thought, “I’ve got to get out of here!”‘

It comes after AJ McLean recalled his experience with the controversial religion on his Pretty Messed Up podcast with Cheryl Burke and René Elizondo Jr.

The Backstreet Boys star said he was ‘living down the street from the mega centre of Scientology’ about 2002 and 2003 and got ‘curious’ about the religion.

‘I didn’t know what it was, I didn’t know anything about it. But I wanted to not go alone, so I took a friend with me,’ he said.

‘We got a tour of the facility and they brought us to this media room and they sat us down and they said, “Would you mind watching this short film?”

‘And we watched this short film – it was about 15 minutes long – and then I said, “Okay, well, that was interesting,” and we went to leave and the door was locked.’

‘They wouldn’t let us out and they replayed the same film again,’ the singer said.

‘We didn’t get out of that room for about 15 minutes [or longer]. They played it three times until someone heard me knocking.’
