Katie Holmes

Scientology

Is Watching Me

7/1/2012 8:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0701_cars_splashKatie Holmes believes Scientology now views her as a threat to the organization and has put a team on her tail ... sources close to the actress tell TMZ.

We're told Katie believes in recent weeks -- as the discord between her and Tom Cruise grew -- Scientology has been following her moves, especially in New York City.

This does not appear to be the mind of a paranoid person. People who have photographed Katie multiple times tell TMZ there have been several "mysterious" men and vehicles around Katie's apartment and following her when she's out.

Specifically ... a white Cadillac Escalade and black Mercedes SUV (see above) have been seen near Katie's NYC apartment for the past week.

FYI -- there is a publication that has put a tail on Katie, but the people doing that are separate from the people Katie believes have been dispatched from Scientology.

It is unclear if the two vehicles that have been constantly spotted near Holmes' pad are from Scientology or from the publication.

If Katie is able to keep the divorce in New York -- where courts generally like to award sole legal custody to one parent or the other when there is conflict -- proof that she's being tailed could help her case.

We put in a call to Scientology ... so far, no word back.

"We put in a call to Scientology ... so far, no word back." Tom says he will personally call you back when he gets back from Iceland...He says to stay cheerful.........

All religions display some cult behavior, not just Scientology...they all teach their members that all other religions are evil and to stay away from them, and that non-church members are "worldly" people and not to associate with them.
So...Tom-haters must be just as worried about Katie teaching Suri to be Catholic...right? :D

Who would you rather be stalked by? A TMZ pap or a scientologist. Vote now.

I always thought Scientology creeps were following
Nicole Kidman and caught her cheating (who could blame her) and that is what blindsided her..when she figured out she was being followed. This is like rosemary's baby..so creepy. nothing would surprise me with Scientology..hope they do not kidnap Suri.

@PERSNLMGR: "
If you don't think the L Ron Moonies have been following her since Day One, you're either incredibly naive, or a member of the CULT (it is NOT a religion). "
-
Wrong again :D
I'm neither naive nor a member of Scientology...and I know nobody is following her except paparazzi ;)
P.S. - There's a very fine line between cult and religion, sometimes no line at all, all religions display cult-like behavior

What would these guys sitting in their cars be able to find out about Katie? It would make more sense to bug her apartment, if they haven't already. That idea is probably what made her find her own place to begin with.

Here I assumed one of the reasons she filed for divorce was that she couldn't take being constantly watched and spied on anymore.

DAVET must be a cult member. creepy. How many fallen catholics do you know? I know lots. Never heard of them being followed or threatened. Many former scientolists have come out and said they were threatened. there is the difference.

Bottom line: Katie is trying take Tom's child away from him, and trying to take Suri away from her father, additionally she has been backstabby and deceitful in her method of divorce and custody plays.
Tom-haters want Tom to be the bad guy, regardless of the facts...using Scientology is just the easiest method of doing so, requiring the least effort of thought, and bringing the most amount of drama-excitement to their lives.
Tom's a good dad, a good guy, an honest man about his true feelings, doesn't back down from his convictions, and isn't the type of weak noodle that today's society want's men to be ;)

I am glad I live in a country where all people of "faith" are given the benefit of the doubt. I am sure that since Scientologists are some of the most devout "people of faith" on the planet, they are doing nothing wrong.

This is scary. I feel for her and Suri. I'd be fearful those nutbag Scientologists would attempt to kidnap Suri or when Tom has her, he would hand her off to some of those creeps for "safe keeping".
I really think this is going to get nasty.....very, very nasty. Lord only knows what's going to come out in the upcoming weeks.
