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.

Maybe this is how Nicole felt Tom? Not fun is it when you can't see your own kids and that they are being used as leverage is it? This is his team's attempt to discredit her and make Tom the victim...hardly. He has ALOT of power behind him and she is fighting for her child's future well being and to maintain her rights as Suri's MOTHER and not be pushed out like Nicole. Stay strong Katie!

She can't, legally, keep Suri from him and she knows that. Besides, nobody believes Tom anymore--his head is too full of Scientology. He's no victim. So--he was in the United States for the 4th, but didn't visit Suri?

Karma's a b*tch isnt it Tom??? You get what you give baby. If you were not such a scientology freak this probably would not have happened. Guess you know how Nicole felt now, huh big guy??? LMFAO!!!! Dude, you need de-programming from scientology.

In watching that do***entary "Secrets of Scientology" the cult members follow, intimidate, harass those who try to expose their cult or leave their cult. I read that Hubbard used to preach "attack, don't defend" and you see so many of them in do***entaries and in stories from ex-scientologists admitting the attack tactics they use to try to gain mind control, to intimidate, to get the upper hand in a conversation, to never let the other person have a voice, etc. It is so bizarre that this cult calls themselves a religion. When you have to pay to be part of a church, when you have to purchase brainwashing materials, when your so called church tells their members to not go on the internet to research Scientology, when they are treated like dense puppets, when they are encouraged to not have a mind of their own but to follow the main cult leaders of their so called church, when they put a cross on their cult buildings to disguise themselves, when they are not allowed to publicly discuss the different levels that they are asked to pay for, to maintain more information about their cult, etc.....all of this is huge red flag for a cult. Why do people even fall into this crap? Are they that vulnerable or wanting so badly to belong to a community, that they are willing to sell their souls to satan, just to "belong" to a cult?

C'mon, Holmes is not using Suri is not a weapon she is a little 6 year old girl that Cruise is using as a Scientology pawn that Holmes is trying to protect her from.


Holmes doesn't have 4 bodygards because of the paps. She has every right to be scared for her daughter.


Holmes has a great family and friends and good support.

First off everyone needs to calm down a bit. This is not the first actor getting blindsided by a divorce. Everyone needs to remember that Katie is a mother. 9 times out of ten when you see pics of Suri; who is she with? Katie. Yes Tom needs to work and that's awesome. Other than that, Katie is the main emotional supporter for Suri. Now everyone wants to bring up religion. Depending on how devoted one is to their religion; it can cause conflict if the marriage has people of two different spectrum of religions. Scientology is insane. I mean cult-like insane like Warren Jeffs insane. When you love someone you try to find commons. It was obvious that after a while Katie was growing concerned. After Suri, I am sure Tom and Katie had talks about Scientology and I sure Tom made it clear that Suri will join the team. Women don't usually pull a Sally Field's Not Without My Daughter manuver unless some really bad stuff was hitting the fan. Fact is; Katie is a mouse. So if she booked it; then something went VERY wrong. And as a mom; if my husband turned into a cultist; I would be in another country with my kids. People can't be blind; just because Tom is good actor doesn't mean beyond money and fame he is a good person. *Ahem* Mel Gibson. It is says right there in the story for all those who DIDN't read it. He talks to Suri EVERYDAY.

Katie is no dummy, she saw first hand what happened to Nicole and her children once she and Tom broke up. From all reports those children call her Nicole, not Mom, that is disrespectful not to mention hurtful. He has complete control over every aspect of their lives and she apparently has no say what so ever, Katie does not want that happening with Suri. Right now it seems that she's doing everything in her power to break away from Scientology and the pull that it has on Tom.

Okay, JMO, but, we don't know what is going on. Apparently, from all the articles, Tom is too busy to try and see Suri. That is what it is, but to say Katie is trying to keep Tom from seeing Suri is absurd. We don't know what arrangements have been made by the two of them concerning Suri. We have heard only two things directly from Katie and one from her lawyer. The only things that have come from Katie is that she has filed for divorce and that she is fine. Her lawyer stated that she was not filing for an emergent hearing on custody and that Tom was talking to Suri several times a day. We really have not heard anything from Tom, only "sources" have said he was blindsided. I believe about 0.00001% of what I read on these sites from sources. And yes, Harvey tends to lean one way are another when it comes to celebs. He favors Kim K, Lindsay L and now Tom C. That is his perrogative (not saying any of them do or don't have anything to do with this slant). I for one do not believe we will know the truth of what went on because I truly believe Tom and Katie have the best interest of Suri in mind. To air dirtly laundry would not be in the best interest of the child.

BTW if I were Katie I'd be very wary and careful about the terms I agreed that Tom could visit Suri right now. I wouldn't put anything past him and or the COS to physically take Suri and make it look like a kidnapping or lie that she had become ill and suddenly couldn't travel etc because she would have a tough time getting any law enforcement to force him to return Suri to Katie. I'd also be worried about who and what Tom would expose her to during his visit to help him...like talking her into saying she wants to live with daddy or is mad at her mom for keeping her from daddy and her siblings etc. Of course it was OK for Tom to keep Katie and Suri from her family much of the time.

JAILHARVEY set up his account 23 hours ago. JAILHARVEY is a scientologist or a scientology rent boy.

Tom is a controlling freak. His choice of "religions/cults" IS the problem. How much time does he actually spend with his kids anyway when he is all over the world making movies so he can donate more money to his cult? Good luck Katie!

Holmes did know about scientology in the beginning but she knows enough about it now she didn't know than that no way in hell she want's this for her daughter.


That's what Cruise does. He shoves Scientology down everyones throat he can. If you don't like it watch out. Just seems that Cruise is trying to 'recriute' his daughter into the cult.

Cruise get over it move on to a 4th wife who is already a cult member.

Why do the cult members attack, name call, swear at those who expose their cult or leave their cult, it is as if you can pick those cult members out even on here in the way they comment, just like how they went on the attack in that youtube video do***entary called "Secrets of Scientology". They call themselves a church, a religion, yet do that? The acronyms even that they use with swear words, was so bizarre that that their top cult leaders use as tactics to intimidate, try to get people to stop exposing their cult or talking about their cult. They think if they swear enough at someone, or call them names, that they will intidimate them into silence. They do not want anyone to think for themselves or have a voice, unless it matches their thoughts or voice. Unless it is doing what they direct and demand their cult followers to do.

Sick. Scientology philosophy - is Seriously mentally warped and irrational.

As if Tom wouldn't have used Suri as a weapon had he seen this coming... as if he wouldn't have kept her from Katie and blocked Katie from his world... Turnabout is fair play - Katie is doing what she has to do to protect her daughter's safety and welfare, period. I have a modi*** of sympathy for Tom as a human who loves his daughter, but I have a friend who was in a cult, and no adult should force a child to grow up in the kind of environment that Scientologist elites have created.
