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.

Smart move, Katie! I'm glad your family is helping you through this rough time. You're lucky your dad is a lawyer. Circle those wagons. Keep Tom's people AWAY at all costs! Protect Suri from the cult! You will get through this...and you will prosper and be happy again! The public is overwhelmingly ON YOUR SIDE of this!! Be strong! Kick ass!!

Howz come if you go to Google image, most of the pictures of Katie with Suri are of Suri looking sad, angry, subdued, distant look on Suri's face?
And why does Suri always look happy, smile, laugh and seem so content when she's with Tom?
Could it be Katie is controlling and Suri's time with her is miserable?
Thinks that make ya go Hmmm ;)

So far the only positive thing I see coming out of this is not only Suri being saved from these nuts...but Scientology itself being called to the carpet once again. Maybe someone else might be saved the anguish of choosing this crap cult in the fallout.

I think what she is really doing is breaking away from the cult firstly and being TC's beard secondly. Her Dad is a divorce attorney so she's in the right hands. Put a hault to the cult :)

Katie's making all the right moves. The mighty midget Davey boy must be smashing furniture and beating the hell out of people at Gold Base.

My respect for Katie Holmes is shooting upward by the minute! Everything I'm reading, about her reasons, about her planning and execution of her escape, points to an intelligent woman taking back her life for herself and her daughter. Good for her! I hope her career takes off the way people's respect for her has. Remember when Tom wanted to change her name to Kate Cruise? Ha!
