MATCHBOX 20 frontman Rob Thomas has rubbished reports he had sex with Hollywood superstar TOM CRUISE - and is even more mortified he's been labelled a fellow Scientologist.

The SOMETHING TO BE singer is horrified by claims he was caught in bed with the WAR OF THE WORLDS star and has finally spoken out to end the rumours.

But he's even more offended by reports he's joined Cruise and other followers of L RON HUBBARD's Church Of Scientology, which has been labelled a "cult" by some critics.

He says, "If I were gay, Tom wouldn't be on the top of my list...It would be Brad Pitt.

"I'm more offended by the rumours saying I'm Scientologist."
