Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise's divorce could turn into a much bigger battle -- with Scientology at the center of the whole mess! We have details on Katie's concerns about Suri and Scientology ... and the legal reason she secretly filed the divorce in New York.

Plus, Charlie Sheen's "Anger Management" debut was nearly record-setting for F/X -- but there's one thing he might wanna change on his new show.

Also, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian go bare ... as in laser hair removal. Is a baby next? And Harvey's in major pain. Seriously -- but can he get just a little sympathy??

does this mean katie and suri will become fair game - just like nic and the kids ?

lmfao

The term Fair Game is used to describe policies and practices carried out by the Church of Scientology towards people and groups it perceives as its enemies. Founder L. Ron Hubbard established the policy in the 1960...s, in response to criticism both from within and outside his organization.[1][2] Individuals or groups who are "Fair Game" are judged to be a threat to the Church and, according to the policy, can be punished and harassed using any and all means possible.[1][2][3] In 1968, Hubbard officially canceled use of the term "Fair Game" because of negative public relations it caused, although the Church's aggressive response to criticism continued

As a mom, my gut tells me this is Katie's attempt to save her daughter from the cult of Scientology. Whatever she may have agreed to (or thought) years ago, she's now had 5 years to see the "church's" activities from the inside - and over time - her concerns may have deepened. It will be interesting to see if a judge agrees that it is "in the best interests of the child" that Suri be protected from the teachings and practices of Scientology.

I think that the thought of being Mrs. Tom Cruise overshadowed any common sense that Katie might have had. Everyone has known for YEARS that Tom Cruise is a devout Scientologist. What did she think was going to happen after she married him? Did she think that she would just be able to continue her daily routine of shopping and never be pulled in the direction of the church? And did she really think that Tom would have a child and NOT want that child involved in the church? Too bad she didn't think of these things before they got married and had a child. It would have been better for the both of them.

Katie should have residence in Germany. At one Germany was considering making Scientology illegal because the church was bankrupting German converts. They give all assets to church and go on Germany's welfare.

She has no grounds for divorce on basis of religion are humans fundamental right especially when she fully entered the marriage knowing about his religious values and beliefs. She is **** he will get shared custody at least she will get nothing extra from the pre nup and everytime he has custody of her he will bring her to the scientology church, so katie holmes will gain nothing from any of this. And i really cant wait to see the judge laugh when he hears her grounds for requesting full custody. The law does not have the right to grant such on this type of basis, that would be 'ultravires' and no divorce court judge will touch that with a ten foot pole. So the judge will ask for other proofs or reasons she should have sole custody, and when her only defense will be showing the judge a clip of him jumping on oprahs couch like a weirdo, he may laugh, but this will be the fastest, easiest case he ever presides over! She will get exactly what she entered this msrriage with- an ugly face and a **** career and a bag full of condoms for when she goes back to her B-list movie parties and goes back to banging broke ass nobodies...

Thank the good Lord that Katie is taking her stance. I agree. I don't agree with most of the comments that they didn't see it coming, because I sure did. Tom Cruise is a control freak. So this is not a surprise to me. Good for you Katie and surround yourself with
all your loved ones because he will try to talk you out of it. God only knows Nicole Kidman escaped the scene and she really looks happy for it.
