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.

Here comes Scientology with the smear campaign. The media really needs to stop reporting on this. It will take away their ammunition.

Awwwww, poor, poor Tom. My heart is so breaking for the poor control freak! Anyone affiliated with a man whose wife had to carefully orchestrate a "break-up" [read: escape] is NOT a 'reliable source.'

All jokes aside. If you want to know how despicable this organization is. Alexander Jentzsch, the 27 year old son of Hebert Jentzsch, the official president of this so called church ( A man who has simply disappeared!)has died. Apparently this happened a few days ago. The church didn't feel it necessary to inform his excommunicated mother. This devastated women found out through the six degrees of separation that is the world wide web. I don'jt care what you believe in, but surely human decency would make them realize that she should have been told when it happened.

So which one of your bosses is a Scientologist? Or does someone in your office have the hots for Tom?

Does this signify that Cruise will finally come out of the closet? I bet his next partner will be male.

Yeah right! Why would anyone trust Tom's mouths to tell the truth about anything involved with that wacko cult? This divorce is so about Scientology. Katie finally realized it's a money hungry cult of evil and wanted her and her innocent child out of that mess.

What do you want to bet she cheated and is pregnant. Something stinks, kate's not being honest. Any man can tell you when the woman decides she is done, she doesn't just leave, she destroys everything in her path and says she's doing it for the kids when in fact she's doing it for herself, for the money and to hurt her husband and she will control when the man will see his kids by making it so difficult and putting such restraints that visitation will not be possible. She will use her kids to get even with the man. Hell hath no fury and not even her kids are safe from her bitterness all the while shes acting like a victim.

Here's where whoever this "source" is screwed up. I have not read in one single article where Holmes was quoted as saying Scientology is the reason for the divorce. There's been a great deal of speculation by others, but she herself hasn't mentioned the word Scientology in any public statement related to the divorce. Whoever is posting these stories in Tom's favor is not doing him any favors.

Scientology is just another shade of the "drama triangle" vilian, victim, hero. It fit Tom's personality disorder perfectly (NPD) and to that, it's likely he will never see the unfortunate "effect" this could have on his daughter. It would appear that Katie has gained enough intuition on Tom's disorder and the disasterous outcome that it and Scientology could have on Suri. Good for you Katie. It's tough anyway you look at it when kids are involved, but you did the right thing. Tom, it's time to break this pattern of relationship for your daughter. There is nothing "clear" about this other than another round of Scientology warfare. Stop the drama triangle.

As a gay person....we never try to out people if it is not true.....why would we? I respect peoples privacy. It is now time for Tom Cruise to come out. He must be so unhappy...his whole life is a lie. You may not believe in "GAY-DAR" but it is for real.....Tom is gay....that is why everyone of his divorces have happened.......if you do not believe this true....wake up...it is true!
