Church of Scientology

We're NOT Tailing Katie

EXCLUSIVE

0701_scientology
The Church of Scientology has responded to TMZ’s story ... that Katie Holmes believes she is being followed by the Church -- they say it ain't so.

Gary Soter, lawyer for the Church, tells TMZ ... the Church of Scientology is not following Katie or conducting surveillance on her in the wake of her divorce with Tom Cruise.

As we previously reported, several vehicles have been on Katie’s tail in recent weeks, but again the lawyer says the Church is not behind it.

You actually expected then to admit it? Of course they are having her followed, thats what cults do when someone wants out. They get people to follow them around, and scare them into not revealing any of the cults secrets.

The paparazzi, including TMZ, are trailing Katie closer than anyone. If the Scientologists want to get close to her they'll just buy off some paps.

Wow a celeb putting paps to good use. She was always nice to the camera though. It paid off.

The scientists are not stalking Katie, and Tom is not a homosexual! BLAH, BLAH, BLAH. Good luck with his next sales pitch. I think America has shown and proved that they do not want to see ANY MOVIE with him in it. He needs to move on to producer. I hope Katie takes as much money as she can, whether or not she deserves it... I loathe his presence.

Poor Katie is being following by: Church of Scientology, Tom Cruise, National Enquirer, five European tabloids, NYPD (for her own safety), TMZ, her own security, and miscellaneous freelance paps. It must look like a funeral procession.

Yeah, right!!!!!! Did anyone see the do***entry the BBC did a few years ago about their tactics? They would even get out of the Black Vehicles and just get in his face and not say anything. "CREEEEEEEPPPY. When the reporter asked the head guy in the U.K. why are they following him around and trying to intimidate him that head guy said, he had no knowledge of that and they don't follow or monitor people. Again. Yeah Right!!!!! Also I don't like Rupert Murdoch, but I agree with him today. He tweeted: that these guy are creepy and to stay tuned as this divorce is going to get weird and fast.

Katie needs to hire security. The scientology cult is made up of freaks and looneytoons. She needs to protect herself.

Would they admit to lying or following her if they were anyway?

Would have loved TMZ to add a paragraph or two on others who have stated the same thing and how this cult has always denied it. Check out Village Voice's Tony Ortega...he has been reporting on this for over 10 years now.
