Tom Cruise’s mother, Mary Lee South, hasn’t been spotted since April — and sources speculate the Church of Scientology may know what’s up.
Radar Online reports that rumors have circulated suggesting the 78-year-old — who was allegedly last seen at an Easter brunch at the church’s LA headquarters — may have secretly passed away.

According to Radar, public records suggest she was moved to an assisted living community a mile from the Scientology building last November — but her apartment in the community allegedly remains empty, leading some to speculate she may have died.
Though, Radar notes, no death certificate has been made public.
