Tom Cruise

Katie is Using Suri as a Weapon

7/5/2012 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0704_tmz_tom_cruise_suri_katie_holmes
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have cut off all contact with each other, and her people are making it difficult for Tom to have contact with his daughter ... sources very familiar with the situation tell TMZ.

Although Tom now has "absolutely no contact with Katie," his people are negotiating/bickering with Katie's people over when and how Tom can talk to Suri. We're told Tom does speak with his daughter by phone at least once a day, but sources connected with Tom say it hasn't been easy. 

We're told when Tom's on the phone with Suri, there is one place he has not gone ... he has NOT discussed the breakup of his marriage with his daughter.

As for when Tom will attempt to see Suri ... sources say it's not going to happen for awhile. We're told Tom was in L.A. for the 4th but he's leaving before the weekend to shoot his new movie in the Rockies.

Our sources say things are "really bitter now" between Tom and Katie. He feels betrayed by her and thinks she is using Suri as a weapon.

And you don't need sources to know one thing -- if he's blocked from seeing Suri, his lawyers will make a beeline for court.

Turn-about is fair play, Tommie-kins. You and the other $ci-fiers taught her how.

Scientology does not want this kind of press and this is opening up a big can of worms for them. Scientology is a cult very thinly disguised as a religion. They get the tax exemptions, write offS and so on. FOLLOW THE MONEY.

On Entertainment tonight a couple nights ago, they had interviewed Katie years ago before her marrying Tom asking what do you think of Scientology, she said she LOVED IT, she was very interested in it, etc. Now, she dated Tom probably because she admitted she was obsessed with him in her teenage years. She had AMPLE time between dating him, having his daughter and waiting almost a year later to marry him. So this Scientology excuse that is being used does not cut it. She also had a relationship with his two other children and would have observed what they went through. I think as usual you have a vendictive party that will use her daughter in the middle of the divorce. Lets be honest her parental skills are not that great either, look at how spoiled this little girl is - a 3 MILLION dollar closet full of clothes. If Tom was not around much Suri became accustomed to this lifestyle because of Katies lack thereof in parental skills. So I would say folks, forget the Scientology theory because everyones relgions have their pros/cons there is much more to this to come.

A former Scientologist with blood ties to the controversial church says Katie Holmes has every reason to be afraid of what could happen to her daughter.
In an ominous statement posted on her website, Jenna Miscavige Hill, the estranged niece of powerful church leader David Miscavige, said Scientology is no place for an innocent child like Holmes’ 6-year-old daughter, Suri.
“My experience in growing up in Scientology is that it is both mentally and at times physically abusive,” said Miscavige Hill, who bolted in 2005.

Very interesting read.

Katie is NOT the bad guy here. Tom and Scientology are the bad guys. Silly cult.

I have been commenting here frequently and have been advocating against a cult. Many people here have been denigrating Tom Cruise. Please stop doing that. He is the most notorious victim of their cult. He is a victim, clearly. He needs to be saved more than Katie and Suri do. While we, as objective observers, can see clearly the hold this cult has on him, he cannot. I only ask that we not condemn him, but only thrust our darts at the cult.

Reports have it that there is about 10 million Scientologists world wide but only about 100k practicing that's a big drop. Who the hell can afford thousands of dollars for each course or lesson whatever they call it.


And Cruise being like 3rd from the top of this cult this is not the attention or press they want.


Nothing worse than having some one elses beliefs shoved down your throat when you don't agree with them and get threatened when you don't . Holmes is doing the right thing by her daughter.

Say what you will about Tom but Katie has no right or reason to prevent him from seeing his child. He's never been arrested for being abusive or for a DUI or anything for that matter. I've never seen anything in the media that would suggest he's anything but a decent father. He may be a lousy husband and his choice of religion may baffle some (ok most!!) but again, as a father, I think he's pretty good and by hollywood standards, probably great.

And of course all of these "sources" are so credible? Could Tom and his traveling and his filming schedule have something do with it. It's sounding a bit quirky. She has cut off all contact BUT he speaks to her every day? And he made no attempt to spend his birthday with his daughter but went to the West Coast. What? To ask his church on his next move?

The bottom line is Tom Cruise has no right to be annoyed about anything. He pulled the plug on his last two marriages so now it was done to him by his third wife - seems fair. He brainwashed his older children to not see Nicole so if he doesn't see Suri, seems only fair - right Tom. Play fair Tom.

I don't think that Katie is using Suri as a weapon and I think Tom is being very disingenuous to even suggest that. Can he not understand the bond between a mother and her child without thinking the child is nothing more than a tool in a game focussed on him? I don't think he has any affection for Suri at all, otherwise he wouldn't suggest that Katie is only using her to get back at him.


He is the one threatening to expose Suri to danger in a cult. Katie is rightfully worried about it. Maybe it was a pact with Satan to marry Tom, but that doesn't mean that Katie can't repent and try to get away.


I am pretty sure she could prove with a DNA test that Tom is NOT the biological father of Suri anyway. He is the one trying to use Suri as a bargaining chip, not Katie.


When you see pictures of Suri and Chris Klein, they look very much alike. That is his kid. I wish Nicole could get custody of his other adopted kids because they are in danger from this wacky cult also. Tom is proving more and more every time he comes agsinst Katie what a confused and incoherent person he is.

Tom is getting a taste of his own medicine. He blindsided Nicole with divorce and from then on their adopted children had nothing to do with her. Karma is a bitch.
