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.

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.

my sources from amongst suri's closest kindergarten friends tell me this all BS concocted by the cult of $atanology. Yes her demented OT8 father has been calling her every day but, my sources tell me, only to see when she can schedule a sec check into her calendar. Apparently this is frightening the bejesus out of Suri, as has Toms continuing talk of an extended cruise on Freewinds for her (1 billion years to be exact) which is to be preceeded by a short stay at Lisa McPhersons old dungeo...sorry apartment at the Fort Harrison Hotel. Suri is extremely frightened of ****roaches our sources tell us. We believe that, as a safety precaution, Suri has advised her Mom to have Daddys pre clear files handy for dispersion to Anonymous for immediate leakage onto the internet should anyone in a mysterious big black SUV pick her up after kindy and she never be seen again nor heard from again. It was also disclosed, that whilst doing some coloring in, Suri mentioned to our informant that her Dad's other wife, David Miscarriage, the head of the Cult Of $atanology, has gone into meltdown over this news of the impending leak by Anonymous as it contains in depth information about her Dad's and Miscarriages, word beginning with the letter g, ending with the letter y and having an a in the middle activities in the backroom of the Cult of $atanology Celebrity Centre the night of Mommy and Daddys wedding. .

Tom trashed ALL his wives after they separated. This is how he operates. He will do everything to take the focus of his cult. He is a control freak who from the moment they met tried to control her life. With Nicole he brainwashed thier children with his cult. Katie desided to get out before he had the chance to brainwash Suri.

Of course it is about Scientology! It' the ace in the hole for Katie, because we all know what nutjobs they are! Add to that she has looked dominated, mentally abused, totally controlled and left unemployed except for loser movies he approved, because she CANNOT ever be bigger than him... and you have a woman who does not wear make-up, does not do her hair, does not care about herself anymore. BUT then, she sees Isabella shacked up with someone at 19. She sees Connor proud to be a DJ, not pursuing education, not doing anything really, just 'cruisin' along on Daddy's beneficience... and you see Suri the next generation of zealots. Katie may have given up on herself, but she is not quitting on her daughter, who in Scientology, is nothing, same as Isabella. Connor the DJ is far more important than Isabella. She got broken by her father and the church. Katie wants more for her daughter. Tom WON'T use Katie's name. He calls her Kate, because she is a childbearing woman now??? He sits in that restaurant so smug and assured, oblivious to his wife's appearance and depression and he is unaware that she is unhappy??? Come on TMZ. The writing wasn't on the wall, it was in her face, her posture, her whole negative energy and the only reason he didn't see it, is because THAT is how Scientology wants women to look. Kelly Preston is indoctrinated to obeying John Travolta and accepting his sexuality as his right. She will be next. Wait for it.

Here is something else to consider. What if... Katie does not buckle to the demands of the sci-fi freaks? What if she starts talking because good ole Tommy is led by his ego, not his IQ, though I am not sure there is a definitive line between the two. What if... Scientology sees the threat of exposure due to Tom's reckless refusal to settle and let Katie have Suri? What if... they decide it's easier to remove the problem... good ole Tom, and try to blame it on Katie??? Hmmm... she will not be found guilty, Scientology will disavow all knowledge... and good ole Tom... well... he still be dead. Hmmm... what if?

Oh, please. People associated with TOM say it's not about Scientology??? TOM, the L. Ron Hubbard worshiper? TOM, who understands psychiatry & Matt Lauer doesn't?

EVERYTHING with Tom is about Scientology.

RUN, KATIE, RUN! (And take Suri with you!)

Really Scientology? This is the best you can do? You sound like a jilted girlfriend, "Oh, don't believe him, he's SO still totally in love with me. He's just trying to hurt me because I'm sooooo hot, cool and popular." What's the matter, your e-meters are off? Face it, your creepy cult and Tom got pwned. All those classes, auditing and tests, and you still got blindsided by a mere mortal. What will Xenu say about that?
