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 comes above all else when it comes to Cruise. Hell he's like 3rd from the top and is their major cash cow.


Scientology is a very thinly disguised religion. They were able to get the government to say so so they get all the tax exempts and write offs and so on.


Funny though, so many ex-scientologists call it a cult and have nothing good to say about it.

Because of Scientology Mr Cruise's reputation has been ruined, he's going through his 3rd divorce, and a nasty custody battle, when is he gonna wake up.

Blah    

Its probably someone from the church saying that trying to do damage control. She had a very promising career and she gets with him and barely works and she was never smiling in pictures, just in the few weeks she looks so much happier!! He seems like he is a control freak. I am happy for her and hope she can make a comeback and be happy!!!

First off if Katie was so into it then she would have released a official statement saying it was not over that and to back off.

Even if she is not directly related to the leaks its clear she doesn't have a problem with people thinking that which would not be the case of someone who loves it.

Toms people are trying to make him look good in the media. If he story about her being ok is true then what did he do that caused her to file and keep Suri from him...

either way she seems much more stable than he ever has been so I believe whatever reason she has is a good one.

OH PULEEEEZZZ!!!!

"Wah, she's being mean to me!!! I'm the victim - really I am!"

Get ready for tidal waves of disinformation from "Hen's" folks.

He's playing the" victim card" because she outsmarted him AND the brain-washing Illuminati cult mafia. Control freaks just will not stand for that.

As long as she has him in the Klieg lights she has the advantage. Taking the custody portion to court was brilliant because that will be public record, and will go a long way to staunch all the backroom threats, bribes, coercion, etc.

If you want to know why Kate might be freaked out, check this out...

It is well do***ented how evil Scientology gets when it is scorned....this is going to get ugly. Tom will lose it as he has no control over her. Typical control freak...he's going to go all mel gipson soon.

The two top brass (directly beneath Miscavige) in the CoS left the cult, and it is widely speculated that they are both assisting Kate and Suri with "the great escape."


Here is one of them, Mark Rathbun, on what Tom and the "church" is likely to do, and not do......

BTW, I don't believe they aren't having her followed and bugged and surveilled. Control and power freaks simply cannot resist.

Pictures were released just before Katie filed of Tom and his costar of his new movie holding hands, laughing with the cameras off. Go to Media Takeout.com They published them saying Katie should go get her husbund now! I think it has to do with Tom possibly getting romantic with his new costar.

The way she left is a strong indication that this was not a good situation and probably hasn't been for a while. We can speculate until we're blue in the face about the reasons why but that one action alone speaks volumes.

All of Tom's people are SCIENTOLOGISTS!!! Of course they are going to say that religion has nothing to do with it. What a joke they are!
