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.

another smart decision by Katie
the other body guards would report her every move to Tom
and since they were his team- they probaly had a connection to Scientology I'd imagine

I think she's been smart taking all those precations BUT she has to be careful because they will make her look like she's crazy or paranoid and they will use that to take Suri away from her. TEAM KATIE!

I think this is the first time I can see a silver lining in the paparazzi stalking a celebrity. Thankfully, Katie is high profile and TMZ is watching over her. It will be unlikely that Katie will go missing like Miscavige's wife. Shelly Miscavige has been missing since 2006/2007.
