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."

I love how the headlines make Tom look like a controlling monster when it is so obvious he is being controlled by a religious cult

Scientology says, it's part of their "moral code" to keep our environment and nature unpolluted and clean.

Fricking Scientology-Tom let's Katie only travel on his private jet! A 20 tons private jet burning tons of fuel to get only Katie's ass from A to B.
That's one example of the phoney Scientology madness.

I knew from the jump that Tom would be controlling of Katie, especially after the whole Batman thing, Tom seems like he can't handle his women being more successful than him. In the immortal words of another egomanica: No one man should have all that power. Maybe if he took some growth hormones he could get rid of that chip off his shoulder.

I think it's fair to say Katie Really didn't know what she was getting herself into. It's kind of like quicksand. You really don't get it until you begin to sink. On the other hand, Tom misjudged Katie's Dad. It has been widely, and inaccurately reported he's a divorce attorney. He is not. Unfortunately, Katie's attorneys continue to release inaccurate information. Hence, Katie Holmes Divorce to introduce reality. Unfortunately the reality is her attorneys have questionable tactics towards their own clients.

Here we go again. Someone must of gotten to Katie from the cult. They probably said you better stop talking about us and make it about something else or else we will send our goons after you. Katie wanting to protect Suri said OK he was also a puppeteer that ran my life . And so the cover up of Scientology begins.
But personally I could see Katie was miserable starting back a few years ago. The magic was gone and a little Napolean had taken Tom's place. Or at least the person that he pretended to be was gone. The Alien Cult member had risen and tried to take over Katie. (Just kidding but it makes for a good SciFi book)

voice of reason    

I doubt she really knew what she was getting herself into. Back in the days when she started dating Tom there was not that much information about that crazy cult. I didn’t know anything about it and it seemed relatively harmless (crazy but harmless). Besides, I doubt Tom mentioned during the courtship days that he believes a spaceship will come get him to Xenu or whatever is the name of their guru. The interrogation techniques this cult is using, lie detector tests, separating families, isolation, intimidation and other scary techniques they use against their members, ex-members and others, that is something that came to light only in recent times.

I am on Team Katie - but even though it is easy to bash Scientology-Tom, we´ve gotto keep in mind that he is a victim of a cult. Joining them was not the smartest thing to do and today his judgement and his values are "created" by the church. I wish Katie all the best in this divorce procedure, not forgetting that both of themare, in fact, victims.

While she was with Tom she was always looking down like a good little submissive Mrs Cruise, she never smiled unless they were staged together for a camera. She was very different in the Pre-Tom Era.

Top of my agenda would be a DNA test in open court - prove once and for all is Tom the pipsqueak actually Suri's father. Personally I don't think he could biologically father anything ever.
