Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes

Divorce NOT

Over Scientology

Katie Holmes
may say her decision to divorce Tom Cruise is over Scientology, but it's NOT ... so say sources directly connected to Tom.

Our sources tell us ... they believe Katie and her team are leaking false stories to the media by maintaining she was trying to save Suri from the grips of Scientology, and that's why she left Tom.

As one well-connected Tom source put it, "She [Katie] was totally committed to Scientology. She had enthusiasm for it and would voluntarily and gladly participate in it when Tom was off shooting movies."

The source adds, "This is not a fight over religion. It's being used as a way to hurt Tom."

And on the subject of hurting Tom, as we first reported, sources connected with the actor tell us Katie's people have made it difficult for him to speak with Suri by phone, but he's talked to her every day. He has no immediate plans to see his daughter because he's leaving today or tomorrow to shoot his new movie in the Rockies.

Tom's lawyers have not filed any docs in court -- yet -- to establish his custodial rights. If that happens, we're told they will file in New York, although it's pretty clear they will ask to have the case sent to California.

And, as for what Tom's people say the divorce is really about ... they won't say yet, but tell us it's coming.

Im sick of this story already. Toms people will spin what ever is said to cover his sexual preference to protect what ever he has left of a career.

TMZ is really kissing Tom's a$$ now. How does Katie not know why she's getting divorced?

Wait...Who cares what happens! Both were rich before they got married and both will will be after, and last time I checked, if ethier one of them passed me on the street they could care less. The outcome of this union will not change how I live one way or the other, so let it happen and lets move on!

Don't hold your breath. The punch line after 5 or 6 more flip-flopping stories will be…

HUM, TMZ who are your sources...because thus far, everything you've posted on this topic (relentlessly) is a lie. Tom's lawyer has already spoken..you idiots! Tom's talking to suri.

We have NO clue as to why they're divorcing, who cares. Tom's been into Scientology nearly all his adult life, duh...Katie just realized this. Give me a break. Has nothing to do with anything..morons!

TMZ, stop positing lies. You, apparently, have 'no sources' except total lies and speculation what you make up in your TMZ gossip room. No sources! Liars.

Who cares why they're getting divorced, it happens everyday! And, there's also NO emergency relief filed in NY court either..dumb AZZ TMZ! You just post this crap to get his, shame on all of you!
