Katie Holmes

Fires Security Team

They're Too Close to Tom

Katie Holmes
has fired her old security team because they were way too close to Tom Cruise ... TMZ has learned.

The team -- made up of a bodyguard and driver -- worked for Tom for years, before Tom even met Katie ... and when he and Katie hooked up, Tom assigned the duo to Katie full-time.

The security team worked directly for Katie for years -- but today, Katie appeared with a new security detail made up of 5-6 bodyguards. Neither the old bodyguard nor the driver was anywhere in sight.

Sources connected to the actress tell us, Katie let the old team go after filing for divorce last week -- because of their allegiance to Tom. It's unclear if the duo were Scientologists.

The last time Katie was seen with her old security team was last Tuesday. Katie filed for divorce on Thursday.

Excellent move. Now, if she has any PR assistants, handlers she should have them removed to along with anyone that was close to Cruise or the Cult. I'm thinking accountant somewhere in there too.

I wonder if she's got a Nanny, cook, housekeeper in that apartment of her's. She should be looking at replacing them too. It's never bad to be overly careful in her situation.

So she's dictating that Tom is no longer allowed to choose who protects his daughter, and that she should be solely allowed to choose who protects their daughter?
Controlling. Dictatorial. Selfish. Katie.

I wonder if the people close to her will be sourcing out tidbits of information. She likely won't dare to talk but those close to her can, under the guise of gossip. It will be interesting to read whatever comes out next. I am sure she did not release this bit of information herself. .

This is good to hear. Everyone needs to watch the BBC Do***entary about Scientology to see the lengths these people will go, including stalking and threatening people who don't agree with them, including journalists.

Search YouTube for the title "THE SECRETS OF SCIENTOLOGY (FULL DO***ENTARY)" ... You can see the full thing there.

If they weren't a cult and had nothing to hide, they would not be doing what they do.

TMZ ... PLEASE LOOK INTO SHELLY MISCAVIGE. She is the wife of Scientology's current leader, David Miscavige, and has been missing for years. David was Tom's best man in his wedding to Katie.

I know people were aware of how nutty Scientologists are and always refer back to Xenu, but there is a much darker side that people are finding out about now and I am so happy that the cult is getting exposed.

Wonder if she's enjoyed that security provided by Tom over the years?
Or the maids and butlers and chauffeurs and gardeners and breakfast-in-bed cooks?
Wonder if she's like Hillary Clinton, who once bragged that she's never cooked for Chelsea or Bill?
As if it's a matter of pride to brag about how much you *don't* do for your spouse or child :D
