Katie Holmes

Tom Treated Me

Like a Robot

7/6/2012 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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."

Did this come out of her mouth for real or are you just making shiz up again TMZ? For the record, if it did come out of her mouth I suggest she find a nice secluded beach somewhere and order "The Stepford Wives" for her Kindle. She knew all about what would happen. She's not dumb.

Of course Tom made her fly separate from the rest of the crew, God Forbid she get the chance to hang out with normal non-cultists who could possibly tell her the truth about Tom's "religion". Co$ keeps their members sheltered and has punished members for even looking at websites that question the cult, so no doubt Tom and DM would want to keep Katie away from anyone who is not completely brainwashed.

I think this is news to no one. The past 6 years, she has constantly looked like a Stepford Wife...with exception to her wedding and few pictures with her daughter, she never looked happy. Good for her - get your life back, Katie.

Three marriages, three divorces for Tom. Think about how you are treating these women, Tom. I think his control freak days are done. I'm proud of Katie. She was so young when they met, and he just took over her life. Now she has a wonderful, happy future.

Another Jennifer/Brad story. Now Katie will become a big star even tho she can't act just like Jen. She was in a TV show before Tom and that's about all she is good at.

Why of course Tom couldnt treat her like he loved her... he might some day have had to put her in "the HOLE" where his BFF David has been hiding errr imprisoning his wife for six years.

Why of course Tom was blindsided by the divorce papers - when you are an over the top narcissist, you never pick up on the red flags and glaring road signs...

Her eyes were wide open when she entered the marriage. She was fine with all this prior to the marriage, so she needs to quit her bitchin. If she's unhappy, she needs to accept responsibility for not thinking things through instead of NOW vilifying what she found acceptable prior to marriage.

The reports that Scientology had nothing to do with their split is PR BS. He's controlled, so he 'controls' her. Katie obviously kept her own **** together and separate from his. Good for her. Run, Katie, Run.

But, what if after spending time with a de-programmer they do not see that they have been slowly brainwashed and irrational in their thinking? And are there any other groups that should also spend time with a de-programmer that can help them to see they have been slowly brainwashed and irrational in their thinking? How about Hindu's who worship an elephant God and a blue man and a hundred other funny charachters? How about Mormons? Must any group you or I perceive as eccentric or irrational spend time with our choice of de-programmer that can help them to see it the way we see it?

I wrote this post the other day. When the founder of the cult tells you in his own words what he is going to do and how he is going to do it, you better believe it.
Here are a few quotes from the Devil himself L Ron Hubbard, it's a real eye opener.
1. "The only way you can control people is to lie to them, you can write that down in your book in great big letters. The ONLY WAY you can control anybody is to lie to them."
2. " I'd like to start a religion. That's where the money is."
3. "Scientology is the only specific (cure) for radiation atomic bomb burns."
4. "Show me any person who is critical of us and I'll show you crimes and intended crimes that would stand a magistrates hair on end."
5 "Enemy SP Order: Fair game. May be deprived of property or injured by any means by any scientologist without any discipline of the scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed."
6. "Dont break your back scrubbing floors. Get yourself a ni**er, that's what they were born for.
__ L Ron Hubbard. letter to second wife____
7. Dianetics is a Science, as such, it has no opinion about Religion! For sciences are based on natural laws, not on opinions."
8. Somebody someday will say: This is illegal! "By then be sure the orgs [Scientology Organizations] say what is legal or not."
Just reading some of Hubbards quotes is enough to make any normal thinking person to realize that this is a dangerous man. This cult should be shut down just on this mans words alone.
