Katie Holmes

Tom Treated Me

Like a Robot

0705_katie_tom_tmz
Tom Cruise controlled Katie Holmes like a puppetmaster ... making every major and even minor decision in her personal and professional life ... and in the end, she felt like she couldn't breathe without his permission ... this according to sources close to the actress.

Movie studio-connected sources tell us Tom executed an "Art Kill" way back when Katie was doing "Thank You for Smoking" in 2005 ... when the 2 first started dating.

Sources tell us Tom instructed producers to "kill" any promotional photos which showed Katie and Aaron Eckhart engaged in kissing or "anything else compromising."

We're told Tom also imposed his will during "Batman Begins" ... prohibiting Katie from flying with the rest of the cast. Instead, Katie would only travel on Tom's private jet. One source tells us Morgan Freeman was "disgusted" by the situation. On the other side, however, one source scoffed and said, "Wow, Tom offered her his private jet. How terrible for Katie."

Ultimately, our Katie sources say she grew sick and tired of playing Pinocchio to Tom's Geppetto ... and decided it was time to cut the strings.

Morgan Freeman tells us, claims he was "disgusted" by Tom and Katie's situation are "BS."

Different Rules Apply    

There's a big difference between thinking you know someone, then living with it! Controlling husbands suck the life right out of you and there's no way to see that coming when you are head over heals at the beginning. I have seen her unhappiness for years via paps pictures. If she looked happy, she would probably be scolded by Tom for flirting. Good luck Katie and watch out for the Scientology Mobsters, be aware of whose around you at all times.

Read this blog by an EX-scientologist. There is an email from the church of seientology instructing it's members to attempt to sensor all internet stories of Tom/Katie that involve the cult, sorry, church. The grammar is terrible, not sure what's funnier, the comments or the poor spelling/grammar. Enjoy kids!

I'm pretty sure she just got swept up in it in the beginning, thinking it was romantic, and that he knew better because he was older, and of course she was starstruck, nobody ever thinks they're going to marry the person they idolized as a kid. But she should have gotten out while there wasn't a kid involved, poor Suri is now going to be the one who suffers for her mother's weakness.

MICHAEL JACKSON/TOM CRUISE FAN FOR LIVE    

Katie Home is GOOD AT LYING, GOOD AT CAUSING TROUBLE AND GOOD AT LOOKING IGNORANT. So why did she not complain back then waited until five .. no six years before , she just in like other Hollywood women want to be famous through some one who worked hard for it. lazy i don't trust Katie at all. You will never see Tom CRUISE GETTING DRUNK IN NIGHTCLUBS as you see most of these guys do today he's very respectable person Katie sucks. she was not even good actress in batman so why bring it up? i just like christen bale that's all about the movie

If one chooses to marry a genius- it includes all that ,that entails, certain eccentricities etc.

What's all the excitement about? 50% of marriages fail, probably more in the celebrity world. Tom Cruise has a horrible track record so why is anyone surprised this one didn't work out? He will undoubtably marry again and that one will fail too. Katie will end up with a small fortune for her troubles, likely more than she ever would have made from her acting career during that period. They're all consenting adults, nothing to see here, so jog on.

For someone that asked for privacy she sure is managing to get her side of the story into the media.

Tiny angry men seem to need to control their women. Sorry Katy! I know exactly what you are going through. Hang in there! You are bright, beautiful and will come out on the other side just fine.

Isn't it great that at least some good has come from Katies suffering. Awareness of the evils of scientology. Isn't it great to see all these nice positive poeple standing up, speaking out and saying no to scientology, its not ok to hurt people. These nice people have an amazing strength, they are strong and it makes me feel good.
