Katie Holmes

Fires Security Team

They're Too Close to Tom

7/2/2012 10:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

It takes a LOT of courage for Katie to do this. Knowing that it could effect her career, her life-- she chooses to protect her daughter. We should all be praying for her safety from this cult.

No, what's scary is people who don't have any real concern for Suri or Katie or Tom or family who spend hours pretending they're oh-so-worried about a little girl they don't really care about as they spew on and on to win an argument to appease their own ego ;)

You just don't get it Davet. People have do have compassion. They see the pitfalls ahead for this poor mother. It's like a David and Golith with a big star and a huge evil cult against a mother and child. Everyone roots for the underdog Davet especially if they are being bullied. Didn't you watch the bus video with the bullied older woman? People do care!

Katie's high school dream has turned into a real life nightmare. Best of luck to her. In the end money talks and Tom has a boat load.

Katie Holmes went into this marriage with her eyes wide open. Why did she convert to Scientology, and why on earth didn't she research what kind of organisation they were before marrying their most famous acolyte?

Not only that, she lived with Tom and had Suri before marrying him - so it's not like she didn't know what she was getting into.

Unless the allure of being with a big star was the main attraction, in which case, deal with it.

I feel sorry for TC. Read Andrew Morton's biog. Tough childhood, punitive father, 23 schools before he was 16. Very little stability. Poverty. No wonder he was drawn to a cult with its tight structure and certainties.

Katie Holmes made a choice to be with him and have a child with him. Nobody forced her to sign on the dotted line.

This woman is as smart as she is pretty. She now knows Scientology is a sham and I am challenging Scientology to open their doors now for the world, IRS and the "Cult" analysists to see their world....
Now Tom needs to speak with Matt Lauer again.....
And when will John Travolta open his eyes... It is interesting that he may be a member, but does not seem to be a controlling factor as Mr. Cruise....

Will everyone please stop feeding the Davet troll! You are only giving it the attention it so obviously craves.
