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.

Good move....The further she can get away from that whack job soon to be ex husband of hers and his whack job cult church the better off she and her daughter will be!

EXCELLENT!

In addition to physical security - the new team should step up electronic counter -measures.

It's 2012 - they'll be "monitoring" from a distance.

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.

99.99% of Katie supporters aren't really Katie supporters, don't really care about Suri, have no interest in the well being of anyone in the Cruise family, and only comment to squawk like hens squaaaawk! :D

I don't blame Katie. I would do the same thing. I bet Tom is livid.

All I can say is that any time a man says to a woman that he want s to send the child away from the mother, for school, for church, for whatever....and into the control, or care of strangers......there is going to be a serious war. Most women will tell you that you better kill them first before they will allow you to send their child away like this. She wants the child to have a normal childhood. I agree that it is something worth fighting over but unfortunately people underestimate their religious allegiances when they get married and when children come along, that is when this type of fight usually rears its head.

Suri isn't going anywhere. tom will make sure of that. in the end, she WILL be submitted into the church. Katie has obviously chose the harder way of doing things. she is allowed to escape, but not suri

Observe how the feminist women are responding:
...Team Katie!
...Owned!
...Hahaha!
....Go Katie!
....Great!
....Hilarious!
---
No motive in there reflecting concern for Suri, their entire agenda is to take sides and "win" an argument.
This isn't a small thing, it's the way they behave out in real life too, the consequences of their ego-driven meddling in people's marriage is often the breaking up of a family, and children separated from parents through custody arrangments.
How do meddling feminist women look in the mirror when they wake up in the morning, and like themselves?
Ah yes that's right...they don't like themselves. Can't blame 'em, there's no personal pride in destroying other people's families ;)

Poor Suri, she seems to like this particular body guard. She's always smiling and waving at him, like he was a trusted protector...I hope she gets some counseling to help her through this period. Katie should check the apt. for taps.
