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."

He just strikes me as succccch a phony. Never looks to be actually happy at all. I know he's a middle child raised with a father that was divorced from his mom before Tom hit his teens. Maybe he's one of these "void" types. Not sure who he is & overly worried about what people expect. ?? Ok actor but ewwww.

Scientology teaches that they are able to help people have good relationships. Tom Cruise is one of the tops dogs in this religion. Either he isn't payin attention or thiws is all bogus. Come on - three failed marriages and his kids with Nicole Kidman don't even see their mother. Something smells funny here.

Abusers isolate their victims from family, friends, and colleagues.

He is protective of her. She just wants to slut her self around. She thinks it's all about her. Look at me.. Look at me with Tom... Fascist if you ask me. If I had a prosoma to keep to bring home the family pay I would keep it. In this economy you have too. She'll be shutting left and right soon looking for a life to say look at me.. Look at me. Tom should sue her for hurting his value. A lot of people invested in Tom. A lot. Not her.

Katie should be ashamed..she knew all of this during the dating period...but she saw fame and money and all she needed to do was have one baby and she is set for life....I don't feel sorry for you Katie, all of this is to re-build your non existent career

And anyone who says she had money of her own..think again, Tom has millions and millions..she was a cut rate actress, no hits and no "real" money...she jumped to marrying this money maker....and now she is set for life...Why do women use children as pawns to get what they want..how selfish....

She is a robot. In fact, she is probably not alive. And she talks out of the side of her mouth like Drew Barrymore - both dip****s.

I give Katie credit for having the guts to get out now - Tom Cruise is a freak, and yes, I'm not afraid to say that he and John Travolta most likely run in the same crowd. Hedonistic egotistic little men who thought they could do whatever they wanted; manipulate whoever they please (because of $$) and it is all just so very sad. But Katie - stay strong. You ARE admired. No one knows except for other women who have been abused and isolated and contrrolled by these insecure little men.

EU AMO O TOM CRUISE, ELE É O HOMEM MAIS LINDO DO MUNDO, MAS, ELE NÃO RESPEITOU O ESPAÇO DE KATIE E SUFOCOU, NINGUÉM TEM O DIREITO DE DECIDIR A VIDA PESSOAL E PROFISSIONAL DO OUTRO,ISSO NÃO É AMOR, ISSO É QUERER TER PODER SOBRE A VIDA DELA.

Who gives a **** how he had treated her? If was able to break up with him so easily, why did she wait so long and endure years of "being controlled"?
