Title: Tom and Katie and Scientology ...The Divorce.
Post by: Ididntcomeback on July 02, 2012, 07:40:17 AM
                                 
Looks like the divorce of Tom and Katie is going to have some mileage.
It needs it`s own thread.

                                Scientologists May Be Stalking Katie Holmes

If there's one thing we can all take away from this whole Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise divorce mess, it's don't ever marry a Scientologist. No matter how good looking, rich or famous or how great he dances in his underwear ... just. not. worth. it. On top of a divorce and possible custody battle, members of the Scientology cult may be stalking Holmes around New York, TMZ is reporting. This does not sound paranoid to me. From everything we know about those Scientologists and their beliefs, I bet Katie is pretty up to speed with how the folks operate.

Apparently, people who have photographed Katie have told TMZ that there are mysterious men and vehicles following her around. That totally sounds like something Scientologist might do. Lots of people follow Katie around -- paparazzi, fans, magazines doing stories on her. It's possible it's completely normal celebrity stuff, too.

Except, let's be real. Scientology doesn't need any help giving themselves a bad name. But this divorce thing is making them look extra out there. If Katie's main reason for getting the divorce is to prevent Suri from getting indoctrinated into that world, as rumor has it, we know there has to be some really scary stuff going on in the inside, which Katie has obviously been privy too.

Not sure what the point is in following her around, except maybe to use their brainwashing techniques to talk her out of a divorce, or even better, to totally erase her memory, preventing her from revealing any of Scientology's secrets. Hey, don't put it past them. Who knows what kinds of gadgets they've got. They don't have access to aliens and have the word "science" in their name for nothing. May the force be with you, Katie.

Are you scared for Katie Holmes? Because we kind of are.

                    He’s Tweeting Again! Rupert Murdoch Takes On Scientology And Mitt Romney

The News Corp CEO kicked a hornets’ nest a few hours ago with this post: “Scientology back in news. Very weird cult, but big, big money involved with Tom Cruise either number two or three in hierarchy.” He was back soon afterward: “Watch Katie Holmes and Scientology story develop. Something creepy, even evil, about these people.” One responder wanted to know what he thinks about Mormons, to which Rupert said: “Mormonism a mystery to me, but Mormons certainly not evil.” The comments had a predictable effect: “Since Scientology tweet hundreds of attacks,” Rupert writes. “Expect they will increase and get worse and maybe threatening. Still stick to my story.”

Murdoch appears to be more ambivalent about GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. “Met Romney last week,” Murdoch says. “Tough (Obama) Chicago pros will be hard to beat unless he drops old friends from team and hires some real pros. Doubtful.” That followed a similarly critical tweet last week. “When is Romney going to look like a challenger? Seems to play everything safe, make no news except to burn off Hispanics.” Still, in today’s tweets Murdoch seems to agree with Romney’s view of the main question in the race. “US election is referendum on Obama, all else pretty minor.” Asked how much capital he has donated to Romney, Rupert says “None!” Someone else noted that “There will be no phone tapping in US election,” adding that “your folks” messed up the economy and now “expect overnight fix.” Rupert answered: “my folks! Come off it, let’s have serious discussion.”

On a side note, one follower wanted to know when Murdoch might bring his son, Lachlan, back into the upper echelons of the company calling him “the most effective and well-respected executive in Australia.” Rupert’s response: “Thank you, the door will always be open for him.”

Katie Holmes
Scientology
Is Watching Me




Katie Holmes believes Scientology now views her as a threat to the organization and has put a team on her tail ... sources close to the actress tell TMZ.

We're told Katie believes in recent weeks -- as the discord between her and Tom Cruise grew -- Scientology has been following her moves, especially in New York City.

This does not appear to be the mind of a paranoid person. People who have photographed Katie multiple times tell TMZ there have been several "mysterious" men and vehicles around Katie's apartment and following her when she's out.

Specifically ... a white Cadillac Escalade and black Mercedes SUV (see above) have been seen near Katie's NYC apartment for the past week.

FYI -- there is a publication that has put a tail on Katie, but the people doing that are separate from the people Katie believes have been dispatched from Scientology.

It is unclear if the two vehicles that have been constantly spotted near Holmes' pad are from Scientology or from the publication.

If Katie is able to keep the divorce in New York -- where courts generally like to award sole legal custody to one parent or the other when there is conflict -- proof that she's being tailed could help her case.

We put in a call to Scientology ... so far, no word back.

                                 Advice to Tom Cruise: Keep Miscavige Out Of Divorce Battle

Posted on July 2, 2012 by martyrathbun09 | 61 Comments

Tony Ortega at the Village Voice ran an interview with me wherein I advise Tom Cruise to keep David Miscavige’s intentions out of his dispute with Katie Holmes, or he will regret it:  Advice to Cruise at Village Voice.

Radaronline has reported on why this advice is wise, Holme’s Family Knows the Score.

For those linking in for background, the following are key posts published here  over the past three years on the unnatural level of control Miscavige has asserted over Cruise and Katie Holmes.

1.   Target, Tom Cruise.  Details how Scientology Inc’s supreme leader David Miscavige (Cruise’s best man at his wedding) has infiltrated the Cruise household and used personal assistants and family members to serve as informants on every aspect of Cruise’s personal life.

2. Miscavige and Cruise Caught Lying.   A documented expose of Scientology Inc leader Miscavige using church of Scientology slave labor to design and construct custom-made motorcycles and vehicles for Cruise.  Demonstrates the depth of Cruise’s loyalty and commitment to Scientology Inc’s sociopathic head.

3.  Cruise at Cult Compound.  Internal Scientology Inc. document demonstrating level of control over Cruise’s life, and how it interjects itself between Cruise and Katie Holmes.

4.  Tom Cruise’s Life Controlled by Sinister Cult.  Internal Scientology documents demonstrating how cult leader Miscavige vets, chooses and controls Cruise’s personal staff.

5.  To Tom Cruise from David Miscavige With Love.   Photographs of the special airplane hangar that was constructed for Cruise utilizing Scientology Inc. slave labor, at the orders of David Miscavige.

6.  Tom Cruise and David Miscavige, an unnatural relationship.   Graphic, photographic evidence of Miscavige’s interjection of himself into Cruise, Holmes relationship.

7.  Tom Cruise’s Custom Cult Motorcycle.   Miscavige’s slave labor custom-design motorcycle gift to Cruise.

8.  Miscavige Betrays Tom Cruise’s Confessional.  How cult leader Miscavige violates the confessions of Cruise.  Further insight into the unnatural, unethical control Miscavige wields over Cruise.

9.  Tom Cruise’s Scientology Buses.    More documentation on the Scientology Inc. custom-made buses, including documentation of the internal Scientology reporting system on details of Cruise’s personal life.

10.  The Whole Story.  If you really want to understand the mind set of the best friend of Scientology Inc’s supreme leader, as Tom Cruise characterizes himself, you should read my recently published book What Is Wrong With Scientology?  It is now also available on Kindle.

            Katie Holmes Ditches Publicist, Security Team Days After Filing For Divorce From Tom Cruise




Katie Holmes is cleaning house: Four days after filing for divorce from Tom Cruise, the actress has fired publicist Ina Trecoikas -- who began working with the actress in 2006, after she married Cruise. Holmes' new representation made the announcement Monday:

   

"Actress Katie Holmes has left her publicist at Slate PR and has signed with BWR Public Relations.

"Following the announcement of her divorce from Tom Cruise, she is now represented by Leslie Sloane in the New York office and Nanci Ryder in Los Angeles. Katie is set to star alongside Chace Crawford in the upcoming film "Responsible Adults," which starts filming later this year."

Holmes was previously signed to BWR, during the pre-TomKat years.


   According to TMZ, the actress has also fired the security team her estranged husband had hired on her behalf. She was reportedly last seen with her Cruise-approved bodyguards last Tuesday, and was surrounded by a brand-new security crew on Monday -- her first public sighting since filing for divorce.

                                     Stop Trying to Freak Out Katie Holmes

Posted on July 4, 2012 by martyrathbun09 | Leave a comment

This is addressed to the infotainment industry and its ‘insider’ ‘sources’, and hopefully Katie will catch wind of it.   If I were in Katie’s shoes and reading your coverage and the allegations of ‘insider sources’ who, in reality, know not of what they speak, I’d be plenty freaked out.

I have tried to explain this to a number of media who have eschewed my informed advice in favor of  ’sources’ who are talking on subjects they have no first-hand experience with yet nonetheless make alarming, definitive allegations.

I was Tom Cruise’s auditor (Scientology counselor) between 1996 and 2004.  I was his liaison to Chairman of Scientology David Miscavige during those same years.   I advised on all aspects of Cruise’s 1991 divorce with Nicole Kidman.  I set up the initial Scientology indoctrination of Conner (then age 6) and Bela (then age 9), and supervised it subsequently.  I was also the senior church official over Scientology Inc’s Office of Special Affairs (the dirty tricks and propaganda arm of Scientology Inc) from its inception in 1982 through 2004.

I hope Katie will take the following to heart.

1.  The church of Scientology will mostly likely not engage in overt harassment, including surveillance of Katie.  David Miscavige will most likely advise Tom Cruise not to engage private investigators to overtly investigate Katie.

2.  The church of Scientology and Tom Cruise will most likely not engage in covert operations designed to frame Katies Holmes.

3. The church of Scientology and Tom Cruise would most likely forbid Suri from joining the Sea Organization (the Scientology priesthood with a lifetime commitment, labor camps, and a ship).  Not at 6 years old, not at 16 years old, not at 26 years old.

Now, that is not to say there is nothing to fear.  Katie can count upon the following happening:

a.  Tom Cruise and his Scientology handlers attempting to indoctrinate Suri to accept Scientology Inc policies with a slant toward fearing that Katie is a Suppressive Person (roughly equivalent to a sociopath).  They can be counted upon to do so at every opportunity so as to alloy Suri’s affinity for her mother and redirect her loyalties toward Cruise and his best man Miscavige.  If you want to understand the complete mechanics that are likely to be employed, they are covered in an in-depth fashion in my recently released book What Is Wrong With Scientology?

b.  Should Katie overtly criticize Tom and Scientology, Tom Cruise and Miscavige can be counted upon to use Tom’s lines of communication in Hollywood to attempt to covertly visit harm upon future career opportunities for Katie.  Given the level of public education over the past several years of Scientology’s hateful propaganda campaigns, and given the clear public sentiment in Katie’s favor, I believe such efforts would miserably backfire on the perpetrators; and likely create the opposite result.

The rest of the alarming reports Katie is hearing come from people who have no first-hand knowledge of Tom Cruise, David Miscavige, and Scientology Inc’s dirty tricks arm, the Office of Special Affairs.  Yes, constant vigilance is called for.  But, there is plenty of danger in what she is likely actually facing. To drive her into unwarranted paranoia is not good for her, her child or anyone else for that matter.

                               Scientology Inc Wants to Censor Cruise/Holmes Break Up News

Posted on July 5, 2012

Good Luck.  It is sort of like showing up to a nuclear war with a squirt gun.

The following is a write up posted by an Office of Special Affairs (dirty tricks and propaganda arm of Scientology Inc.) operative on how to counter free speech on the internet.  It is posted currently with specific reference to those commenting on the break up of Tom Cruise and Katies Holmes and Scientology Inc’s role in the affair.   The recipient Ray McKay is a well-known OSA operative.  ”Razzline members” refers to members of a corporate Scientologist on line collective.    When will David Miscavige (supreme leader of corporate Scientology and Tom Cruise’s best man) ever learn that attempts to suppress communication and expression only make more news than the news he attempts to censor?....

                                          Tom, Katie, Suri and the Media Reaction


When I first started this blog, my primary intention was to clear up the misinformation about Scientology, the Church of Scientology and ex-Scientologists.  Sometimes I think I've done a good job.  Then there are times, like recently, when I'm amazed at how much misinformation still persists.

Katie recently had her dad fire all her Scientology "handlers" and help her file for divorce from Tom Cruise in New York.

The media has gone absolutely crazy with the news and got some very important things totally wrong.  Don't they do research any more?

What the media got right:
The media has rather consistently framed Katie's actions as an "escape from Scientology".  Correct, it is.

The media has viewed Scientology as weird and dangerous.  Again, correct.

The media appears to consider Suri turning six as the primary trigger for the divorce and Katie asking for sole custody of Suri.  I also believe this is correct.

There are other, less important things, that the media got mostly right.

What the media got wrong:
No, Suri was not in any danger of being "sent to the Sea Org".  That outcome is not and was not in the cards.  While I have never seen or heard of a six year old in the Sea Org,  that isn't the point.  Celebrities do not get sent to the Sea Org and Suri, because of her parents, is a celebrity.

Many years ago, Yvonne Jentzsch, who ran Scientology's "Celebrity Centre" used to make some celebrities "honorary Sea Org members".  These people never did any Sea Org things, they just continued whatever they were famous for, but that idea died with Yvonne.

Today, celebrities, and their children, are coddled and, if they are top tier like Tom or Katie, they are assigned "handlers" to spy on them and keep them isolated.

No, Suri going to the Sea Org wasn't what Katie feared.

Suri was not in danger of being "sent to the RPF".  That's just stupid.

Suri was not going to be "interrogated" (Sec Checked), at least not right away.

None of the media understood the very real danger Suri was in.

Suri's actual danger:
L. Ron Hubbard said that you don't "audit" a child before they turn six.  Auditing, in this case, means all the Scientology activities that use the "e-meter".

So, that meant no "counselling sessions", no "word clearing" (no Scientology courses) and no "Sec Checks".  And that meant that Suri wasn't getting any of the standard Scientology indoctrination.

But that was just about to end.  Suri was six.  Time to get her "in session" and "on course". You just know that Tom was heavily pressuring Katie to get Suri active in Scientology.

The divorce is Katie's unequivocal answer.

Good for you Katie, you did exactly the right thing: get Suri somewhere safe where the cult can't indoctrinate her.

Just Bill

                    Scientologist Leader Urges Censorship of Media: ‘Stand Up and Defend Our Religion’
Louis Peitzman   

Marty Rathbun has long been a thorn in Scientology's side, but his release of an email by the Office of Special Affairs ("dirty tricks and propaganda") may prove especially troubling.

The email was sent to Ray McKay, whom Rathbun calls "a well-known OSA operative." In the email, the author, Daniele Lattanzi, refers to the Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce and the negative attention it has brought to Scientology.

    I am not a big fan of media, but you may have glanced the news of the split between TC and Holmes and all the speculations around. While this is a personal matter, when people start to bring our religion into the middle and a bunch of uninformed people start to spread false datum, rumors and defame our religion it became a matter that does affect my Dynamics and I believe that affects yours as well.

    Well, I am not somebody that I am going to simply stand and watch a bunch of uninformed people putting my religion under the carpet. So here is a simple hatting on how you can causative fight back and at the same time stand up and defend our religion on the internet.

What follows is a step-by-step guide to censoring coverage of Scientology on the internet by reporting "abuse." Lattanzi suggests scanning TomKat articles for comments that "defame or degrade" Scientology. This concerted effort, he believes, will have an impact on stopping the spread of negative information.

Rathbun, who was once Tom Cruise's spiritual mentor before breaking off from the Church of Scientology, calls the attempt at censorship "like showing up to a nuclear war with a squirt gun."

Of course, officially the Church says they have nothing to do with the email. A spokesperson for the Church of Scientology responded—

    An email from a Scientologist is no more from the Church of Scientology than an email from a Catholic is from the Vatican. This did not come from the Church or anyone associated with the Church, nor is it a Church plan.

On his blog, Rathbun has spent years documenting these attempts at censorship and subterfuge by Scientology — all of which are denied by Church officials. The harassment Rathbun has faced is supposedly the work of individual Scientologists and not condoned by the Church, something Rathbun is certain isn't true.

As much as the Office of Special Affairs would like to control the conversation, there's no avoiding the fact that the TomKat divorce has once again put Scientology in the spotlight. With reports that Katie Holmes was being followed, and that she left her husband to save their daughter Suri from growing up as a Scientologist, damage control will have to amount to more than merely flagging comments as abuse.

                                Katie Holmes Finally Tells Scientology How She Really Feels

You've got to admire Katie Holmes, the way she took control of her miserable life and turned it around in, like, 10 seconds. Just look at what she managed to do in a mere few weeks. She needed a new home for her and her daughter, and she bought it. She wanted out of her marriage, and she did it. Divorce done. She sought custody of her daughter, and she got it. Screw you, Tom Cruise, don't mess with Katie.

I never really thought much of anything about Katie Holmes before this divorce went down, but I officially LOVE this woman now. Especially, especially her latest statement against the Church of Scientology that has clearly been the source of much of her sorrow and angst these past years....

            TomKat Divorce Settlement Details Emerge! What About Suri??

 Earlier today, we reported that Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise had reached a divorce settlement, and now, we have some juicy deets about what it ALL entailed!

First things first — Katie is granted primary custody of six-year-old Suri. (Thank Xenu everything)

Secondly, as predicted, Suri will continue living with Katie in their apartment in NYC, with Tom getting visitation rights.

A source close to the case revealed:

    "Katie insisted that Suri's nanny and bodyguards always accompany her when she visits Tom. Katie did this for several reasons. This will ensure a smooth and easy transition for Suri when she is with Tom.”

Smart move, Katie!

Since Tom only has members of the Church of Scientology working for him, Holmes wanted to ensure that Suri would be protected from the Xenu-worshippers when off visiting her dad.

On the topic of Scientology, the source goes on to state:

    “Under terms of the settlement, Suri isn't permitted to be exposed to anything Scientology related and this includes going to any Scientology churches, parties, etc. Katie made sure that this was ironclad in the agreement.”

Phew! We are SO relieved knowing that Suri will be removed from the cult church!

We’re also glad Suri will have supervised visits with Tom, making sure that the terms of the agreement are met fully… without any funny business going on while Katie's away!

                 Tom Cruise Viewed as "Complete God" in Scientology, Ex-Church Member Says

Not a fan of Mission: Impossible? Well then, you might just be a Suppressive Person.

That's an exaggeration, but according to ex-Scientology member Amy Scobee, Tom Cruise is "viewed as a complete god" within the controversial religion.

Scobee spoke with E! News about her experience in the church....

MORE: Tom and Katie vow to keep Suri's "best interests" in mind with divorce

Scobee, who left the church in 2005, knew Cruise and ex-wife Nicole Kidman well, even hiring their household staff at one point.

So why is the actor so revered within the COS?

"Because of his influence," she said. "He was awarded the meritorious award of valor...He's viewed as integral."

'We are committed to working together as parents': Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes reach divorce settlement behind closed doors - as she gets 'sole custody' of Suri

Katie Holmes' lawyer has confirmed her highly-publicised divorce with Tom Cruise has been settled, as reports emerge she will have 'sole custody' of their six-year-old daughter Suri.

It seems the couple have reached an agreement out of court, meaning the actor's beloved Scientology is no longer at risk of scrutiny with the religion's secrets being dissected during a trial.

Jonathan Wolfe said: 'This case has been settled and the agreement has been signed.'

Speaking to TMZ, he added: 'We are thrilled for Katie and her family and are excited to watch as she embarks on the next chapter of her life.
Life in the spotlight: As she released a joint statement with estranged husband Tom Cruise regarding the dissolution of their marriage, the actress seemed to be in high spirits

We thank Tom's counsel for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution'.

According to TMZ, while Katie has sole custody of Suri, Tom will still get significant custodial time with his daughter.

Apparently the agreement also includes details on what Tom and Katie are allowed to tell Suri regarding religion, including Scientology.

The restrictions are eased as Suri gets older, the website reports.

A separate source, speaking to Radar, also revealed that Suri will remain with Katie in New York, where they currently reside, and will be accompanied by her own nanny and team of bodyguards when she visits father Tom on weekly occasions. However an insider who spoke to TMZ has disputed this.

The insider told Radar: 'Katie insisted that Suri's nanny and bodyguards always accompany her when she visits Tom... This will ensure a smooth and easy transition for Suri when she is with Tom.

'Suri is Katie's number one priority. Tom only has Scientologists that work for him and Katie insisted that her staff will always be with their daughter.

'Under terms of the settlement, Suri isn't permitted to be exposed to anything Scientology related and this includes going to any Scientology churches, parties, etc. Katie made sure that this was ironclad.'

Suri will also not be expected to attend a Scientology school, like Cruise’s adopted children with ex-wife Nicole Kidman, Isabella, now 19, and Conor, 17, did.

Fingers began pointing even before reasons of their split came to surface.

And earlier today, the rumours circulating their difference in religious opinion, notably the Cocktail actor's rigid Scientology beliefs, appear to have been confirmed in a joint statement from the couple.

Released by their representatives, the notice states that they will continue to work together as parents and 'express our respect for each other's commitment to each of our respective beliefs'.

                                               David Miscavige Blows Off Katie Holmes

Posted on July 16, 2012 by martyrathbun09 | 52 Comments

David Miscavige has no doubt by now convinced Tom Cruise that yours truly ought to be the target of his ire for Katie Holmes’ splendidly executed split and consequent historic media coverage.  After all, he’s already got Cruise’s attorney, the august Bert Fields, alerting the media far and wide claiming to be victim of me.

And just as certainly, as per usual, the real target is David Miscavige himself.

I have learned from very credible sources that David Miscavige quite in addition to infiltrating the household of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise and interjecting his insanity directly into Katie’s life through his undue and unnatural influence over Tom,  Miscavige also directly and intentionally saw to it that Katie received squirrel, reverse Scientology as explicitly covered in my book What Is Wrong With Scientology?   

Katie’s introduction to Scientology was the Golden Age of Tech II (GAT II) pilot project run directly by Miscavige’s organization (Religious Technology Center – RTC) at the Celebrity Center in Los Angeles.  Katie was put at the top of the project’s line up as one of its first unwitting guinea pigs.  GAT II’s mission with respect to Tom Cruise’s wife?   Put her through Miscavige’s latest brand of Quickie Grades (for a complete explanation of what that entails, see chapter  6 Grades of my book What Is Wrong With Scientology?)   

Miscavige’s only two tech trained staff (Anne Joasem – once Rathbun – and Elsie Tucker) personally oversaw every session of it and answered and reported directly to Miscavige, every step of the way.  Anne and Elsie cherry picked the processes to run from the huge body of tech for each grade, and Miscavige approved every individual one to be run on Katie.

So, there too is your Golden Age of Tech II news.  Apparently, based on his spectacular results with Katie, Miscavige announced recently he was going to unleash his suppression on the planet at large.

In a way, Miscavige did Katie a big favor. Had she been delivered standard grades she might have been more able to withstand the entheta Miscavige brought into her marriage and household.  She might also have attributed her wins to the Miscavige administration.  The net result would have been that she hang around longer and be effectively spiritually fattened up for a gruesome kill.

This is the conundrum of corporate Scientology and the reason why the ‘church’ of Scientology is dead.   You are damned if you and you are damned if you don’t in Scientology Inc.

The bottom line is four-fold:

a)  David Miscavige is a squirrel (someone who alters Scientology to the detriment of the people to whom it is applied).

b) Religious Technology Center (RTC) is a squirrel group.

c) Religious Technology Center is a suppressive  (sociopathic) group.

d) David Miscavige is a suppressive person.

                Tom Cruise's attorney rips tabloids for divorce coverage

July 18, 2012

Tom Cruise's attorney criticized the tabloids Wednesday for their coverage of his client's divorce from Katie Holmes.

Bert Fields, who has been relatively quiet since the high-profile divorce unfolded, ripped the "grotesquely false claims" published in one magazine that Cruise had supposedly abandoned the couple's 6-year-old daughter, Suri.

"That, as anyone knows who saw their photos together yesterday and today, is a disgusting, vicious lie," Fields said. "Until this week, Tom was shooting a film on location [in Iceland], but he spoke to Suri every day. He’s with Suri right now; and he was with her the day before [the magazine]  trumpeted their cruelly false accusation. Tom dearly loves Suri, and the last thing he would ever do is abandon her.”

PHOTOS: Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes through the years

Cruise has been chased around Manhattan for the last two days by paparazzi as he whisked Suri from her home to his suites and to her daily gymnastics classes.

Cruise and Holmes reached a private divorce settlement, giving Holmes primary custody and Cruise visitation rights and a "meaningful relationship" with Suri.
A source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk publicly about the case, said Holmes will have some voice in selecting the nannies who will accompany Suri when she spends time with Cruise.

PHOTOS: Celebrity splits of 2012

The person said the deal gave Holmes some level of control without appearing to monitor Suri's visits with Cruise.

The agreement gives Holmes the lead role in choosing how Suri will be educated, the source said Monday.

In an interview with CNN, Holmes' attorney Jonathan Wolfe praised Cruise's attorneys "for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution.... We are thrilled for Katie and her family and are excited to watch as she embarks on the next chapter of her life."

With a prenuptial agreement governing the distribution of assets, talks between lawyers for Cruise, a prominent member of the Church of Scientology, and Holmes, who was raised Roman Catholic, centered on the role of Scientology in the upbringing of Suri, according to a person who was familiar with the negotiations but not authorized to discuss them publicly.

Holmes wanted guarantees in the settlement to ensure nothing is done while their daughter is with Cruise that would "alienate" Suri from her, the sources said.

She infamously 'blindsided' Tom Cruise by filing for divorce last month, leaving the Church of Scientology in a public relations nightmare.

And now the church is seeking to 'discredit'  Katie Holmes, according to a former member, who claims to have 'seen internal memos' on the subject.

'Katie would have been excommunicated normally, and behind the scenes she probably already is,' Scientology defector Samantha Domingo told The Hollywood Reporter.....

                 Katie Holmes Skips First Planned Public Appearance & Scientologists Get Blamed

Posted by Julie Ryan Evans
on July 29, 2012

his weekend Katie Holmes was set to attend a red carpet event for the Dizzy Feet Foundation gala in Los Angeles. It's a fantastic organization she co-founded that helps provide dance classes to low-income children across the United States. It was to be her first planned public appearance since her divorce from Tom Cruise, and it seemed like a good first step back into her work life. Only she ended up cancelling at the last minute.

The question is why? Some have speculated that it's because her security team feared the Scientologists. A source told Celebuzz:

    Katie was really excited about attending the event, but in the end, her security team had concerns about the situation, especially the daytime event given it was being held in a public park. Katie is devastated at the turn of events. She was really looking forward to it.

The source went on to say that while security had been beefed up, still they couldn't "guarantee Katie's safety."

I'm sorry, I find the Scientology religion to be as baffling as anyone, but thinking that they're actually a threat to her seems like a pretty big conspiracy theory to me. What exactly would they do to her? Brainwash her and force her to take Tom back? It's a little late for that. Also, Scientologists are already eyed with enough suspicion; the last thing need is some big public scandal. And for all of their unconventional ways, they don't seem to be a violent set.

Nor is she hunkered away fearing their far-reaching grasp. Guess what Katie Holmes actually did do yesterday? She fed the giraffes with Suri. At the Bronx Zoo. In public. I'm sure security for that was a much trickier job that at a charity event.

Then last night, she had dinner in a restaurant with a mystery man (who turned out to be her attorney). She even spoke to paparazzi! And lo and behold, no Scientologists tried any funny business.

My guess is that her cancelling the appearance in L.A. had absolutely nothing to do with Scientology. Rather, I would bet it had everything to do with Suri and her well being. It's only been a month since the divorce, and to travel across the country with or without her, probably just felt like a lot. They're just getting settled in New York, and maybe she felt like the timing wasn't right.

Whatever the reason, it's her prerogative, and while I'm sure attendees of the event were disappointed she didn't attend, her true fans will surely understood. As for the Scientologists, they probably have better things to do anyway ... like perhaps tracking down Tom's next romantic victim interest.

Do you think Scientologists are a threat to Katie Holmes?...

Tom Cruise Exclaims "I'm Good" After Split From Kate Holmes, Pays A Visit To Scientology Centre

Posted on Sun Jul 29, 2012


It's been a very emotional few weeks for Tom Cruise, who has been dealing with the shock of the sudden divorce filing by soon-to-be ex-wife Katie Holmes, while also trying to film his latest action flick, Oblivion.

But the Mission Impossible star was all smiles as he stepped out for lunch with pals at Tony's Tavern in Malibu, on Friday afternoon, exclaiming to an X17 photog: "I'm good!" after enjoying his meal.

The 50-year-old looked every inch the movie star in a long sleeved white tee paired with jeans, tennis shoes and aviator sunglasses, as he made a beeline for the Church of Scientology in Hollywood after lunch, where he's been taking refuge after the split.

Katie and Tom's divorce was finalized within a matter of weeks, and while Holmes won primary custody of Suri, Tom has been granted regular visitation rights and is currently looking for a new place in NYC so he can be closer to his 6-year-old daughter.

Check out our exclusive video of Tom right here!

             Katie Holmes' Still A Target For Scientologists, According To Church Spies!


Yesterday marked one month since Katie Holmes broke free from the reigns of Tom Cruise and the Church of Scientology, after she filed for divorce!

While things might seem good and well with Katie, it sounds as though the Church of Scientology isn’t finished with her just yet!

Ex-scientologist Samantha Domingo recently stated:

    “Katie would have been excommunicated normally, and behind the scenes she probably already is. Internally, the wheels are in motion to discredit Katie. We have moles that are pretending to be good Scientologists who report back to us on the outside. I’ve seen internal memos about Katie.”

…Because that’s not creepy or anything!!

Since Katie left the church, she could potentially be declared a suppressive person, or SP, as Scientologists call them.

According to the church’s website, an SP is a person who is anti-social and seeks to suppress people…such as “Napoleon, Hitler, the unrepentant killer and the drug lord.”

Ah, yes…we’d DEFINITELY clump Katie into the same category as Hitler…! Seriously?!

Former Scientology spokesman Mike Rinder explained:

    “Katie Holmes is probably the biggest suppressive person out there right now. Tom, if he were an ordinary Scientologist, would be ordered to disconnect from Katie and because Suri will be living with Katie, he couldn’t see her either. But because Tom is so high-profile, it would create a total furore if the public knew he was cutting Suri off. This is an example of the church at its most hypocritical.”

Interesting…

As we previously reported, Katie has made her return to her Catholic roots, by becoming a parishioner at the Church of St. Francis Xavier in NYC and even enrolling Suri into a private Catholic school.

Meanwhile, a source states that Holmes’ exit from Scientology is considered “the biggest middle finger Scientology has ever seen.”

Somehow, we don't think Katie cares what the Church of Scientology thinks — as long as she and Suri are happy and separated from its cult-like ways!

                        Scientology costs Tom Cruise two wives, Katie Holmes protects Suri

    Tom Cruise Scientology
    July 30, 2012

Tom Cruise, in his obsession with Scientology, has seen two marriages end. The Village Voice may have given us the answer as to why. We learned on Sunday, July 29, 2012, from their new series, that he “worships David Miscavige like a god.” Furthermore it seems that to survive in their church one must defer to Miscavige. Ironically, in an ABC News interview with Tom Cruise’s unauthorized biographer, Andrew Morton, he pointed out that it was through Miscavige that Cruise was introduced to Katie Holmes. In essence the Church of Scientology found her. The women with whom he was previously associated, after the divorce from Nicole Kidman ,were also said to be hand picked.

Video: Tom Cruise biographer shares secrets

What happened with Katie Holmes must have come as an affront to the closed community. She not only rejected Cruise, but she conferred with his former wife, Nicole Kidman, to save daughter Suri from being indoctrinated into Scientology. Kidman lost both of her children to Cruise when he won sole custody of Isabelle and Connor, devoted Scientologists.

Kidman has never spoken about losing custody. However, it was well reported that she had little to do with Scientology. And based on The Voice series, this may not have pleased Miscavige.

The Village Voice

The interview series is with John Brousseau, described as a 32-year escapee from “the church's International Base east of Los Angeles in 2010.”

Brousseau often specialized in creating luxury vehicles for Cruise. He even carved a pen for Cruise out of a felled eucalyptus tree from the Scientology grounds to match one of his cars. When he presented the car and pen to Cruise and Holmes, The Voice reports:

    "'Oh, JB, did you make that?' she asked me."

    And Brousseau knew that as soon as she said it, Katie's question actually put him in a tough spot.

    "I couldn't accept the praise. Miscavige was standing there," Brousseau says, referring to Scientology's leader and his former brother-in-law, David Miscavige.

    Thinking quick on his feet, Brousseau blurted out, "Don't thank me. I'm just the hammer."

    He then held out his hand to Miscavige and said, "This is the hand that wields me." Brousseau says Tom nodded, knowingly. Tom Cruise Worships David Miscavige Like a God: The John Brousseau story

Katie Holmes in New York with Suri, their Catholic faith

Instead of going into hiding, Holmes took her daughter to a very public place, New York City. There they have been badgered by photographers and we have seen Suri often hiding her face. But she has many faces, and is apparently enjoying play dates, the zoo, and ice cream parlors. Although Disneyland Dad took her on a helicopter ride, Holmes is attempting to give Suri a normal upbringing.

Enrolling Suri in a Catholic school means the opportunity to learn about the faith in which both Holmes and Cruise were raised. Additionally, she will have classmates, unlike previous years when she was home schooled.

                      Katie Holmes ‘hires confidence coach’


Actress said to be seeking boost after split from Tom Cruise

 KATIE Holmes has reportedly hired a confidence coach to help get her back on her feet after her split from movie megastar Tom Cruise.

The 33-year-old split from the Top Gun actor - the father of her daughter Suri - earlier this year, ending their five-year marriage.

But Katie has apparently been left in need of a new direction since her break-up with Tom - a devotee of creepy cult Scientology.

A source told a magazine: "She foresaw an incredible golden future for her and Suri, free of Tom and Scientology.

 "But the glow and radiance that surrounded Katie post-split seem to have evaporated.

"Katie is keen to find her own voice so she has sought professional help and has employed a confidence and life coach who she's been seeing once a week to help her regain who she once was."

Katie filed for divorce from 50-year-old Tom on June 27 this year.

Two weeks later the former Hollywood couple signed a deal giving Tom generous visitation rights of Suri.

Since then Katie has been getting her career back on track, bagging roles in new movie Responsible Adults and Broadway play Dead Accounts.

And she is said to be steering six-year-old Suri away from her trademark designer clothes, asking fashion houses to stop sending expensive gifts.

A source told a US magazine: “Katie has been returning unsolicited gifts and loans from designers for Suri since she arrived in New York."

But Katie's confidence is said to have been knocked since Suri's return from visiting dad Tom - where the actor pulled out all the stops to treat the girl, taking her on a trip to a Florida theme park.

      Katie Holmes reportedly has no regrets about Tom Cruise split: Happiest divorced celebrity?

Published August 08, 2012

Katie Holmes isn't moping around after her divorce from Tom Cruise. On the contrary, she's "blissfully happy" just weeks after the split was finalized, a family insider tells RadarOnline.com.

"Katie is a new woman, she feels refreshed, free of Tom and doesn’t have a worry in the world," the source says, adding that Katie is enjoying spending time with her family, and having more control over her career.

 
"She’s been enjoying the company of her family a lot more, something she couldn’t really do when she was married to Tom. He controlled who she saw and he often wasn’t so approving of her family. Tom also influenced what movies she appeared in, so she was unable to steer her career in the way she wanted to."

And then there's the elephant in the room ... Scientology. "Scientology was a huge fear for Katie too," the source tells Radar. "She was raised a devout Catholic and never committed herself to it fully."

                      Katie Holmes Took Suri Cruise To Meet All Her Cousins For The First Time

Suri Cruise is finally finding out what it’s like to be part of a big family, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

The 6-year-old spent last weekend with mom Katie Holmes, 33, in Toledo, Ohio and got to meet all of her cousins for the first time!

It’s Katie’s latest attempt to normalize her spoiled daughter’s life and young Suri took to meeting her extended family like a duck to water.

PHOTOS: Katie Holmes May Be Under Surveillance By A Team Of Mystery Men

“The purpose of Katie’s trip with Suri to Ohio was to introduce Suri to all her cousins,” a family insider revealed.

“As the youngest of five, Katie loved growing up in a big family, so she wants exactly the same experience for Suri.

“She worries that Suri doesn’t get enough exposure to kids her own age and Katie wants her to be brought up in a similar environment to which she was raised in.

PHOTOS: Cutest Celebrity Kids

“Tom was very protective over Suri, and liked to keep her close to him, the Church and his family all the time.

“Now he is out of the picture, Katie decided Suri should meet her eight cousins for the first time in an attempt to give her a normal childhood, away from the glitz and glamor she had become accustomed to.

“It’ll take some getting used to for Suri, because she always gets things her own way. At first, she wasn’t thrilled with the idea of sharing some of her toys with her cousins when they all played together.

PHOTOS: Princess Suri Lives It Large At Cinderella's Castle

“But, soon enough, Suri won them all over with her bubbly personality and they can’t wait to have her visit again.

“They’d only ever seen Suri in magazines and in family photos, so they felt extra special to meet a celebrity their own age,” the insider revealed.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Katie has finally moved her belongings out of the $30 million Beverly Hills home she once shared with Tom.

Her possessions were picked up by a moving and storage truck on Wednesday afternoon, and X-17online managed to get the pictures.

The seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom mansion, which also features a movie theater, tennis court and swimming pool is Tom’s to keep after the pair reached a divorce settlement out of court.

And as RadarOnline.com first reported, Suri will start her first day at school in New York with both her famous parents there in tow to give her a big send off to calm her nerves.

“Tom has been filming his latest movie in London but has made plans to be in New York for Suri's first day of school, which will be after Labor Day," a source close to the former couple revealed.

“Tom and Katie have been speaking on the telephone regarding Suri and Katie has been very supportive of Tom wanting to be there when Suri goes to her new school for the first time.”

TomKat is now Tom and Katie once more.

A Manhattan judge has officially signed off on the Tom Cruise and Katie Homes divorce settlement, meaning both are officially single.

Holmes filed for divorce from her hubby of six years in June, catching the "Mission: Impossible" star by surprise. After two weeks of media reports about Holmes' issues with Cruise's Scientology fixation, they announced they'd settled their differences in early July.

The details apparently took a while to hammer out. The agreement - which includes provisions for raising their daughter Suri - was presented to Justice Matthew Cooper on Monday, and he signed off on the deal.

Neither Homes nor Cruise were present for the signing.

The terms of the agreement are confidential, and they'll stay that away - the judge ordered the already-sealed file impounded, meaning it'll be locked in a safe in the basement of 60 Centre Street.

                      The Church of Scientology, Vanity Fair and an astonishing lawyer's letter

"It is inconceivable (to the entire world) that Mr. Cruise would have difficulty getting a girlfriend," writes a lawyer for the Church.

In its most recent issue, Vanity Fair published a piece by Maureen Orth on the Church of Scientology, which encompassed the relationship between its leader, David Miscavige, and its most famous adherent, Tom Cruise.

The magazine put 32 questions to the Church (and if you think that's a lot, remember the New Yorker asked it 1,000 queries for its mega-long profile of Paul Haggis, "The Apostate").

The questions elicited a furious response, delivered via Jeffrey K. Riffer, of the law firm Elkins Kalt Weintraub Reuben Gartside LLP. The Church has posted the missive on its media response site [PDF].

It is quite unlike any lawyer's letter I have ever seen before. Here are some extracts:...

          Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes Divorce Details Leaked: Marriage Was Over 6 Months Before Split

By Radar Staff

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ marriage was irretrievably broken six months prior to the former Dawson’s Creek star filing for divorce, according to court papers exclusively obtained by the National Enquirer.

In the legal documents dated August 17, 2012 and signed by New York State Supreme Court Judge Matthew F. Cooper offers details of the divorce decree, including the specifics of the A-list couple’s custody agreement with 6-year-old daughter Suri have emerged.

The “marital relationship” had “broken down irretrievably for a period of at least six months immediately preceding,” the papers state.

PHOTOS: Tom Cruise And Katie Holmes’ Relationship Through The Years

Tom, 50, and Katie, 33, tied the knot in a lavish wedding in Italy in 2006. However, the legal documents say they officially married “in a civil ceremony” in Los Angeles on November 11, 2006. A prenuptial agreement was acknowledged and signed by Holmes months earlier.

In terms of child support, Tom was ordered to pay $400,000 a year to cover Suri’s “medical, dental, insurance, unreimbursed medical and dental, education, college, extracurricular and camp expenses.”

The total payments, however, won’t eat into Tom’s estimated $250 million fortune – with experts calculating the expense will cost the Mission: Impossible star $4.8 million in total. He only has to pay child support for the next 12 years until Suri turns 18.

And in the highly unlikely event that Tom skips payment? He will be faced with a jail sentence “for a term not to exceed six months.”

By Jen Heger - Radar Assistant Managing Editor

Katie Holmes is enjoying her new life being single since her divorce from Tom Cruise and has no plans on dating anyone anytime soon, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

"Katie is just flourishing in her new life," a source close to the situation tells Radar. "Yes, there have been some dark moments but she was more than ready to embark on the next phase of her life post-Tom Cruise. Katie felt that her professional career suffered because she was married to Tom and that she didn't have the final say in her acting roles. Katie is currently busy preparing for her role in Dead Accounts.

"Katie believes in love and hopes to get remarried one day but has absolutely no plans on dating anytime soon. Katie is devoted to being the best parent possible to Suri [Cruise] and continuing a smooth transition into their new lives together. Katie knows bringing a new man into the situation would only cause more stress for Suri right now and the actress is still recovering from the end of her marriage to Tom."

As previously reported, leaked legal documents dated August 17 and signed by New York State Supreme Court Judge Matthew F. Cooper offer details of the divorce decree, including the specifics of the A-list couple’s custody agreement.

The “marital relationship” had “broken down irretrievably for a period of at least six months immediately preceding,” the papers state.

Tom, 50, and Katie, 33, tied the knot in a lavish wedding in Italy in 2006. However, the legal documents say they officially married “in a civil ceremony” in Los Angeles on November 11, 2006. A prenuptial agreement was acknowledged and signed by Holmes months earlier.

In terms of child support, Tom was ordered to pay $400,000 a year to cover Suri’s “medical, dental, insurance, unreimbursed medical and dental, education, college, extracurricular and camp expenses.”

Meanwhile, "Tom has been in daily contact with Suri via telephone and Skype. Suri has been telling her dad what she has been learning in school. Katie and Tom are now talking also and are working to co-parent Suri. Tom is hoping to see Suri around Halloween as he has been filming a movie in London," the insider reveals.

                Rumors: Tom Cruise Picks Scientology Over Suri


By Gossip Cop, Wed, October 10, 2012

According to In Touch, the “biggest mystery in Hollywood” is Tom Cruise’s time away from daughter Suri.

The magazine claims the actor’s “prolonged absence” has “insiders and fans alike wonder[ing] what could possibly be keeping him away from her for so long.”

Well, the tab thinks it has the answer: Scientology.

In Touch reports, “According to former Scientologists, the religion’s tenets dictate that when someone leaves the church, remaining family members must ‘disconnect’ from them.”

“The rules would prevent Tom from seeing [Katie Holmes], who would be labeled a ‘suppressive person’ for splitting with Tom in June,” speculates the mag, citing a former Scientologist. “It could also mean disconnecting from his daughter.”

That’s fascinating… except it makes zero sense.

Cruise has seen Suri since his split from Holmes.

In fact, In Touch ran a disgusting cover story back in August showing the actor and his daughter on a trip to Disney World, asking whether Suri was “Forgetting Mommy Already?”

Why hadn’t his Scientology prevented Cruise from “connecting” with his daughter then?

In Touch seems to be on an “abandoned Suri” kick these days, but really, the magazine is just doing what it’s been doing for months — trying to make both Cruise and Holmes look bad, and printing speculation that does not correspond to actual, real-life developments.

Here’s what’s actually happening: Tom Cruise is currently filming All You Need Is Kill in London, and Katie Holmes is raising Suri in New York.

His absence is tied to professional obligations that were set a long time ago.

It has nothing to do with Scientology, and Cruise is not “disconnecting” long-term from his six-year-old daughter.

A rep for the actor tells Gossip Cop the In Touch story is completely “false.”

 Is there hope for TomKat? Tom Cruise ready to cut links with Scientology to win back Katie Holmes

The religion has cost the actor two marriages - and he blames Scientology for what has happened, The People can report

When Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ marriage fell apart earlier this year, the actor’s ­obsession with Scientology was blamed.

It emerged Katie, 33, feared their six-year-old daughter Suri would ­become too involved in the religion.

But, in an astonishing move, Tom is thought to be reconsidering his links to Scientology after 20 years with the church.

Sources close to the star claim if he cuts his ties he may even win back former Dawson’s Creek actress Katie and see more of his daughter.

The source close to the three-times divorced Top Gun star said: “Now he’s lost the most precious thing in his life, he sees that his Scientology beliefs may not have hurt his box office but have ended not one but two marriages.

“It was a terrifying and rude awakening for Tom when Katie served him with divorce papers. He’s used to feeling undefeatable and untouchable. When he lost Katie he felt a failure.”

Tom became a Scientologist in 1990 when he was married to his first wife, Mimi Rogers, 56.

The end of his second marriage to actress Nicole Kidman, 45, was also blamed on the religion.

The friend said: “He has lost Nicole and now his wife and daughter. He has always used the Scientology techniques but he has now realised they don’t work in marriage.”

Cruise’s close friendship with David Miscavige, the leader of the church, has also suffered.

The pal said: “Tom and David have been attached at the hip but this ­relationship has deteriorated and that, along with the loss of Katie and Suri, is forcing him to question his role in the church.

“He hasn’t lost faith completely but he is blaming Scientology for what has happened.”

Tom and Katie, nicknamed TomKat, seemed the perfect Hollywood family until the actress served divorce papers on her husband by fax in June.

In August they were officially divorced by a New York judge after six years of marriage. Katie cited irreconcilable differences for the split and requested sole legal custody and ­primary residential care of Suri.

A pre-nup agreement entitled her to $3million (£1.9million) for each year they had been married to a maximum of $33million (£20.5million) after 11 years, as well as a substantial amount of property that Cruise owns. Tom also gives Katie $400,000 (£250,000) a year for Suri’s medical and dental insurance, plus education fees and other extracurricular expenses.

Following the split Cruise has spent most of his time filming his new action movie Oblivion at various locations across Europe. Meanwhile Suri has been photographed in New York with Katie eating ice cream, something he reportedly banned her from doing.

It had been assumed Tom would immerse himself in the religion but a source within the organisation – whose global headquarters are in East Grinstead, West Sussex – claims Tom no longer wants to be the “face” of Scientology. Along with A-list stars such as John Travolta and Kirstie Alley, Cruise is one the religion’s most high-profile ­members. But he’s now trying to reduce his involvement with ­publicising the beliefs.

The source said: “Tom is no longer volunteering to be the public poster boy for Scientology. You’ll see he is seriously calming that down, he will head up the annual fundraisers and awards show but that’s in-house.

“In the outside world, Tom will not be promoting the religion, he is distancing himself.

“Many believe he is pulling away because he thinks it was Scientology that split him and Katie up.” The break down of his friendship with Miscavige is just as crucial in his decision to distance himself from the church.

David, 52, has been involved in the religion since he was just 11 and was an assistant to its founder L. Ron Hubbard. Miscavige announced Hubbard’s death in 1986.

Until his split from Katie, Cruise was said to worship David “like a God” and their intense friendship has been blamed by some as the reason for TomKat’s marriage ending.

Miscavige, Tom’s best man when he wed Katie near Rome, has been mocked as Tom’s “manwife”. They have been seen wearing matching black silk shirts and have often given each other expensive gifts. On one occasion David bought Tom an aircraft hangar for his private jet.

But today sources within Scientology said Tom hasn’t been seen at the services or Sunday brunch in months. The source said he has told friends if he were no longer a Scientologist he and Katie could live happily ever after.

He is understood to be using “go-betweens” to tip her off that he is disillusioned with his faith.

The source said: “If Tom truly leaves, Katie would reconsider. She was in love with Tom, he was her childhood crush, it took a lot of strength to break free. But now she has peace of mind but no love.”

She may have Suri at her side and her mum Kathleen and dad Martin living nearby but her friends say she is growing fed up with the less ­ glamorous lifestyle she now leads.

One said: “She had it all before, and now she’s alone in what she sees as rainy, dreary Manhattan with very little to do.

“She did get involved in the recent New York fashion week but found it gruelling and she has lost so much of the support she once had.”

 Tom Cruise Leaving Scientology? Wants Katie Holmes, Daughter Suri Cruise Back

By Staff
Oct 15, 2012

 Is Tom Cruise leaving Scientology?

The 50-year old actor is reportedly desperate to get his ex-wife Katie Holmes back and he wants daughter Suri Cruise back in his life full-time and is willing to toss aside Scientology if that is what it takes.

The 'Mission: Impossible' actor – whose six-year marriage to the 33-year-old brunette ended in August – is said to be reconsidering his connections to Scientology after 20 years with the church because the 50-year-old star, who was married to Nicole Kidman from 1990 until 2001, felt "a failure" following his latest split.

A source told The People newspaper: "Now he’s lost the most precious thing in his life, he sees that his Scientology beliefs may not have hurt his box office but have ended not one but two marriages.

“It was a terrifying and rude awakening for Tom when Katie served him with divorce papers. He’s used to feeling undefeatable and untouchable. When he lost Katie he felt a failure.”

Tom – who has six-year-old daughter Suri with Katie – is "distancing himself" from the religion and insiders revealed he hasn't been seen at the services or Sunday brunch for months.

The source added: "He has lost Nicole and now his wife and daughter. He has always used the Scientology techniques but he has now realised they don’t work in marriage.

"Tom is no longer volunteering to be the public poster boy for Scientology. You’ll see he is seriously calming that down, he will head up the annual fundraisers and awards show but that’s in-house.

“In the outside world, Tom will not be promoting the religion, he is distancing himself.

“Many believe he is pulling away because he thinks it was Scientology that split him and Katie up.”

Should Tom cut all ties with Scientology then insiders believe Katie would consider reconciling her relationship with him.

The source explained: "If Tom truly leaves, Katie would reconsider. She was in love with Tom, he was her childhood crush, it took a lot of strength to break free. But now she has peace of mind but no love.”

Too little, too late? Tom Cruise could be set to leave Church of Scientology in bid to win back Katie Holmes

He's one of the most high profile supporters of controversial religion Scientology, but A-lister Tom Cruise could be leaving the church in a bid to win back his ex-wife.

When the couple announced their separation earlier this year, the religion was widely acknowledged to be one of the main catalysts behind it.

Now sources close to the actor have revealed that he might be becoming disillusioned with the church that has helped to destroy his marriage.

                          Are Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes Back Together If He Gives Up Scientology?

Should the title instead have been, “Is Katie Holmes stupid”? Would she give up everything she’s accomplished and the kick ass reputation she’s created in this short period of time just because Tom Cruise gives up Scientology – assuming he ever would do that? I’d like to think the answer was Ah, hells to the no.

But as we’ve witnessed this summer, Katie Holmes is nothing if not unpredictable.

“Katie is a sucker for the big romantic gesture,” a friend told Grazia magazine. “Tom swept her off her feet the first time around, and if he goes ahead and leaves Scientology for her, that would be seriously tough for her to resist. The religion is the biggest thing in his life. If he left that behind for her, it would be immense,” the source continued. “But it seems that may be what he’s talking about doing. He misses Suri like crazy.”

He misses Suri so much? Is that why he hasn’t seen the kid in two months? Regardless, what’s more believable – Katie taking Tom back or Tom giving up Scientology? Trick question! There’s no way either could happen! You’ve got to have balls of steel if you’d first convince the world your husband is crazy and then go against public opinion and take him back.

But let’s say he wasn’t crazy. Let’s say Tom actually did renounce Scientology. Then is it OK to reconcile? Tom is Maverick after all. Surely Maverick could get a second chance in our hearts if he wasn’t bat sh-t crazy. I’d have to give the green light on that. Think of the headlines. Katie Saves Tom! Katie Helps Tom See The Light! Tom’s beaten employees would cry tears of joy at Katie’s feet!

I’m just saying… if the fashion line or the acting doesn’t work out… it could be a good thing. But, again, this source is probably for shit. There’s no way Tom’s quitting Scientology. He is Scientology. That would be one existential crisis and I’m not sure I’d want to deal with that if I were Katie. Still… to be the woman who stole Scientology’s greatest follower would be massive. The Catholic Church has canonized people for much less.

Is this Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes back together story valid or is it wishful thinking? If Katie and Suri could have driven Tom away from Scientology, don’t you think it would have happened already?

                     Is Tom Cruise Trying To Lure Katie Holmes Back With Scientology Posters: Creepy?

Talk about an interesting piece of gossip for a Monday morning, right? According to Page Six, it looks like Tom Cruise might be missing his family and is trying to lure back ex-wife Katie Holmes back into his arms via a few Scientology posters at her Subway stop. The paper is reporting that there are about three Scientology posters mysteriously plastered on the walls of Katie’s New York City subway stop and strangely enough they are only there. So, is Tom trying to send her a message?

Here’s what we’re reading:

Katie, look out behind you! After escaping her marriage to Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes has been publicly showing us that she’s just a normal single mom in the city, even hopping on the subway at West 23rd Street this month. But Chelsea spies tell us that at the very same station where Katie hopped the E train, a series of posters has gone up advertising Cruise’s favorite religion, Scientology. “Searching for answers to life?” the poster says above a hunky Cruise lookalike staring at the Empire State Building from a balcony. “Scientology. Know yourself. Know life,” the poster says. A source told us that the poster campaign does appear in other subway stations, too, but, “at all the hundreds of stations in New York, this is the one where three Scientology posters went up.”

So is this creepy? Yes, absolutely. But on the other hand, it looks like Tom is really missing Katie and their daughter Suri Cruise and is trying to get them back without having to leave his sacred religion. Something tells me that those posters get washed away with Hurricane Sandy in the next few hours, so you’re good, Katie.

What do you guys think?

                                  Katie Holmes Embarrassed by "Free Katie" T-shirts
By AHLAN! REPORTER

    Tuesday, 30 October 2012

Katie Holmes was at dinner with daughter Suri when she came face-to-face with Halloween revellers wearing ''Free Katie'' and ''Save Suri'' T-shirts


Katie Holmes had an embarrassing encounter with a diner wearing a ''Free Katie'' T-shirt in a restaurant. The 33-year-old actress and her daughter Suri, six, sat down to enjoy a quiet dinner at Mr Chow Tribeca, in New York City, on 27 October next to a group of Halloween revellers, who were wearing the comedy T-shirt and another shirt which read ''Save Suri''.

The slogan emblazoned clothes are references to the campaign that was started when Katie was still married to Scientologist Tom Cruise - who she divorced in July - urging her to leave the actor.

Another member of the party was dressed as a young Tom from Top Gun, but when they spotted who was on the next table they covered up their T-shirts.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: ''When they sat down, they exchanged an awkward glance with Katie, but she kept her cool and didn't say anything. The embarrassed Halloween crew quickly covered up the costumes before Suri got a chance to take a look.''

It was recently claimed Katie is getting ready to date again following her separation from Tom, 50, and her dad Martin intends to help her find a new guy.

                                           Tom Cruise lawsuit could open his private life

IT can be true in medicine and Tom Cruise may find it’s true in law: Sometimes, the cure is worse than the disease. The Top Gun and Mission: Impossible star filed a $50-million defamation lawsuit on Wednesday against the publishers of Life & Style Weekly and In Touch magazines for twice alleging the actor had “abandoned” his daughter Suri.

But as people familiar with litigation know, Cruise runs the risk of turning his private life into a very open book. To prove that the tabloid’s allegations were false and defamatory, Cruise may have to answer any number of questions, under oath, about himself and his parenting. He might even be asked about his past relationship with ex-wife Nicole Kidman and the children from that marriage, as well as his religious beliefs, according to libel and defamation lawyers not involved in the case.

“Plaintiffs who initiate actions like this have to go in with their eyes wide open because it may not be a very pleasant experience,” said Charles L. Babcock, a Houston attorney who specializes in defending media companies in First Amendment cases. Cruise earlier this year narrowly avoided seeing a court case open a window into his marriage. When Katie Holmes filed for divorce in June, their split had the potential to expose the couple’s finances, their pre-nuptial agreement and their custody arrangements, among other things.

But the couple settled the split privately, with no paper trail. A source with knowledge of the case said at the time that the settlement was made so that none of the terms would be contained in publicly available documents, a practice that is fairly common in such cases.

As part of their defense in the new defamation case, lawyers for the magazine can (and doubtlessly will) seek to depose Cruise, and in addition to his live questioning under penalty of perjury could also ask to depose ex-wife Holmes, who is six-year-old Suri’s mother. What’s more, Cruise and Holmes could be asked to produce documents and answer written questions, called interrogatories, about Cruise’s relationship with his daughter and how much time they spent together, the lawyers said.

“What a suit of this type opens up is the entirety of the relationship between Cruise and Suri,” said Donald Zachary, a veteran Los Angeles media lawyer. “They can go into every visit he’s ever had with her.” But Cruise could also seek information from the magazines to prove they knowingly published false information about him and his daughter.

The magazine, which has declined to comment on the litigation, could also file a motion against Cruise, claiming that his lawsuit seeks to muzzle free speech. Known as an anti-SLAAP motion, the tactic has been used against people such as Barbra Streisand, who unsuccessfully sued the California Coastal Records Project for invading her privacy by publishing an aerial photo of her Malibu home. Plaintiffs who lose anti-SLAAP motions can be forced to pay the defendants’ legal expenses. In filing his suit, Cruise lawyer Bert Fields issued a statement saying, “Tom is a caring father who dearly loves Suri. To say he has ‘abandoned’ her is a vicious lie. To say it in lurid headlines with a tearful picture of Suri is reprehensible.”

To prove that the articles or headlines were in fact defamatory, or to show that the publications are liable for what’s known as “false light invasion of privacy,” Fields must show that they not only were false but also caused harm to Cruise’s profession or his reputation.

And that could create another legal thicket for Cruise, the lawyers said. “There’s a real question about whether saying he has abandoned his child really hurts his reputation,” Zachary said. “If the question becomes, ‘Does this hurt his reputation?,’ that could open him up to very embarrassing questions about what his reputation really is.” Those queries could include a look into his controversial membership in the Church of Scientology.

Babcock added that if Cruise were to argue that the stories and headlines caused him mental anguish, the actor’s medical records could become part of the case, and the defense lawyers could even order their own medical examination of Cruise.

The suit was filed in US District Court in Los Angeles. At issue is Life & Style’s July 30 cover, which had the headline, “Suri in Tears, Abandoned by Her Dad,” accompanied by a picture of the girl crying.

“...[D]efendants have demonstrated that they have no interest in the truth, and will stop at nothing to push the sales of their tabloids, even if this means exploiting a defenseless six year old child on their cover,” the lawsuit, alleging defamation and false light invasion of privacy, says. “They are wholly unconcerned about the truth of what they publish or the harm it causes. Indeed, the more hurt and embarrassment they falsely and maliciously cause their victims, the more money they make.”

“Tom doesn’t go around suing people,” Fields said in the statement. “He’s not a litigious guy. But when these sleaze peddlers try to make money with disgusting lies about his relationship with his child, you bet he’s going to sue.”

Fields, who had sent Life & Style and In Touch two letters prior to the litigation asking the magazines to immediately retract the articles at issue, did not respond immediately to comment further on Thursday.

If Cruise wins the lawsuit, Fields has promised, the money would be donated to charity.

                    Katie Holmes to make Broadway debut after divorce from Tom Cruise

Following a high-profile divorce, star revives her career and says she's just an ordinary woman



Four months after abruptly divorcing Tom Cruise in one of the most talked-about breakups in the history of American showbusiness, Katie Holmes is making her debut on Broadway in New York, in a show expected to be one of the hottest tickets of the winter, not least due to her presence on stage.

Holmes is starring in a comedy focusing on family relationships in the mid-west where she grew up.

The career of the former Dawson's Creek actress floundered during her marriage and, since moving to New York with her daughter Suri, Holmes has kept a relatively low profile. In an interview with the New York Times last week, Holmes stressed the normality of her life as a working New York actress who rides the subway, takes her daughter to school and shops unaccompanied in the supermarket below her Chelsea apartment block.

Appearing on Broadway will return her to the public eye. But Holmes also appears to have been attracted to a script that allowed her to reflect on a tumultuous period of her life. Dead Accounts follows the story of a young woman reconnecting with the Catholic, family values of her upbringing.

"It's a behavioural code," Holmes told the New York Times. "Innocent values … Do these values still work for me? Do they still make sense? I've asked myself those questions for years." She continued: "I have these moments where what's going on in my life is unbelievable, and you have to tell everyone to figure out how to respond. My siblings and I are always on the phone saying: 'Oh my God, what do you think? What does Mom think? What does Dad think?' And then you act accordingly."

The actress, who, like the rest of downtown New York, lost her power supply in the recent storm, stressed her new down-to-earth lifestyle, claiming she's drinking boxed wine. "It's good. And it's a lot easier to open." Such normality is at odds with accounts of her life with Cruise. Vanity Fair reported on the extensive Scientology-orchestrated selection process that prospective girlfriends undergo, the prenuptial agreement that Holmes signed, as well as her father's concern about keeping his daughter from Scientology's clutches.

After Holmes's expertly crafted split from Cruise, Scientology was accused of placing her under surveillance. Holmes appeared on the cover of Elle magazine in an expertly timed interview. "I'm starting to come into my own," she said. "It's like a new phase."

As the Hollywood Reporter's Janice Min noted: "The whole narrative on Katie Holmes was, 'She's been brainwashed and lobotomised. She's a zombie for Scientology.' That's what made this whole saga breathtaking … this is the heroine of the moment."

Under the barrage of negative publicity, Cruise agreed to terms of divorce in days, and the actress was freed to establish herself as an independent entity. She was recently photographed wearing a "Free Katie" T-shirt that Dawson's Creek fans wore during her marriage.

"I still think of myself as midwestern," said Holmes, 33. The New York Times noted she arrived for her interview without any trappings of celebrity: no assistant, no makeup, no jewellery.

In an interview with Women's Wear Daily, she outlined her new identity as an aspirational everywoman – returning to the theatre, co-writing a film about single motherhood, posing for the Estée Lauder cosmetics brand Bobbi Brown.

"The girl next door has built a career," said Maureen Case at Estée Lauder. "She has taken the bull by the horns and moved forward." The publicity drew attention to her fashion line, Holmes & Yang, that she presented in September. Fashion reviewers were broadly friendly.

Last week Holmes said she was uncomfortable with the idea that theatregoers might buy tickets to her play to experience her celebrity, not necessarily her acting.

Dead Accounts, which opens on 27 November, is still in previews, but Holmes's performance has already drawn applause on several occasions – notably when a telephone being used in one scene broke, and she deftly fixed it without skipping a beat.

"I have a hard time sleeping because I think about how serious this all is," she said of the expectation surrounding the production. "I think about the cost of tickets. I think to myself: 'You better do a good job. People are paying a lot of money.' You want to know your stuff."

                        It Looks Like Katie Holmes Has Reached The Final Steps Of Cult-Recovery

Read more: http://crushable.com/entertainment/katie-holmes-scientology-dawsons-cree-suri-cruise-jimmy-fallon-558/#ixzz2CQ0oiP3A



Katie Holmes gave her first post-divorce  TV interview on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night, minus any residual glassy-eyed looks or Stepford Wife PR stories, which leads me to believe she’s reaching the final stages of her cult-recovery process.  You know, because the six minutes I spent Googling “escaping from a creepy cult” now makes me an expert on Scientology PTSD.  Katie seems to be somewhere between the “accomodation/acceptance” phase and the “re-involvement in society” phase.  Either way, it’s just nice to see a little life in her eyes and the resurrection of the Joey Potter sweater.

When asked about a possible Dawson’s Creek reunion, she seemed to be really open to it:

    “I love everyone from the show and we have kind of talked about it here and there, but what do you do? Maybe we’ll go on a vacation, that will be fun… and just film it!”

Helping her along through her break from Scientology, Katie is starring on Broadway again. She sings!  She dances!  She eats pizza!  During rehearsals for the show, Dead Accounts, Katie was busted eating some pizza that was meant to be a prop in the show.  She laughed it off by defending herself:

“We didn’t have an audience yet!”

She was very jovial and even kind of delightful throughout the entire segment, which you can watch here.

Throughout the past five or six years, Katie Holmes has made her rounds on the talk show promotional circuit few and far between.  Because she hasn’t had a whole lot to promote.  Because until earlier this summer, Katie Holmes was a robot.  The fact that she’s moved along so quickly in her recovery leads me to believe that she pretty much always knew deep down that Scientology, like lots of organized religions tend to be, is total bullshit.  Weird, alien-worshipping bullshit.

Obviously Jimmy Fallon isn’t the talk show to appear on if you’re planning on discussing serious subjects related to your mental and emotional well-being, so I can only hope that Oprah will get her to spill her guts on a sunny afternoon in a vineyard sitting on wicker furniture.  There’s no doubt that Katie’s divorce settlement involves one hell of a gag order, but if anyone can find a way around that, Oprah can.

According to factnet.org, post-Scientology behavior can be pretty fucking crazy so if you want to become a healthy member of secular society you should try and follow these suggestions:

1.) Avoid judgmental people and groups.  This means Katie Holmes would have to leave Hollywood entirely, and you know Suri ain’t having that at all.

2.) Seek out rational, mature adults.  While this would mean avoiding Hollywood people entirely, I suggest anyone who isn’t Kirstie Alley, John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Will and Jada Smith, Leah Remini, etc.  Because they are more about Xenu and less about rationality.

3.) Cultivate humor.  Jimmy Fallon appearance?  Check.

4.) Look for the goodness in people.  See number 2 for list of people to avoid.

5.) Try to learn to forgive.  Oprah will probably have a better handle on this than I do.  Because I make it a point to neither forgive OR forget.

6.) Reclaim your right to self-reflect.  Shoe-shopping and restaurant-hopping with Suri?  Check and check.

7.) Get involved in projects or tasks.  Make a movie!  Record a Christmas album!  Do a TV cameo or two!

8.) Resurrect your humanity.  You and Suri can wear matching designer galoshes and rubber gloves and help “Restore the Shore”?

9.) Link up with other ex-Scientologist support groups.  See number 2 for the list of no-nos.

                  Tom Cruise Reunites With Daughter Suri Cruise for Thanksgiving After Three Months

It's a wonderful Thanksgiving for Tom Cruise since his daughter together with Katie Holmes, Suri Cruise, joined him and his adopted children, Connor Cruise and Isabella Cruise, in England. The six-year-old girl reportedly jetted off to London on Tuesday, November 20. It's their first reunion since August.

"Suri left Tuesday and will return Sunday to return to school on Monday," a source close to Katie told The Huffington Post. "Tom and Katie agreed to this weeks ago." The "Rock of Ages" actor is now in England to film "All You Need Is Kill", a sci-fi thriller movie, which is based on a Japanese novel with the same title. The movie is scheduled to be released on March 14, 2014.

Katie, meanwhile, left New York on Thursday, November 22 to celebrate Thansgiving with her family in Ohio. "We have Thursday off, so I'm going to have a chance to go home with my family," the "Batman Begins" actress told Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan of morning TV talkshow "Live! with Kelly and Michael".

"My sister makes a really good sausage stuffing and my mom makes a great turkey," she gushed. She then explained her family's Thanksgiving tradition, "Many years ago, my dad started this tradition where we all do this run in the local park. It's a three mile run called the Turkey Trot. There's even a prize, which I haven't won yet. But it's really fun."

Tom and Katie swapped vows on November 18, 2006 in a luxurious Scientology wedding ceremony at the 15th-century Odescalchi Castle in Bracciano, Italy. However, on June 29, this year, the former "Dawson's Creek" actress filed for divorce. On July 9, they are officially divorced. Suri has been living in New York with Katie since the couple split.

                    KATIE HOLMES SPLIT KICKS OFF CULT EXIT


KATIE Holmes has ­triggered an exodus from the Church of Scientology by divorcing celebrity ­devotee Tom Cruise.

Since their split, the ­controversial cult has been rocked by a string of ­resignations.


And it is about to come under attack in a book by Jenna Miscavige, niece of Scientology leader David Miscavige, who was best man at the celebrity ­couple’s wedding.


Batman Begins actress Katie, 33, has never spoken out against the church, which teaches that we are all descended from aliens.


But part of her divorce settlement with Cruise, 50, will allow their daughter Suri, six, to choose her own religion when she is old enough.


An explosive and ­potentially damaging ­exposé of the religion is ­expected in Miscavige’s book Beyond Belief: My ­Secret Life Inside ­­Scientology And My ­Harrowing Escape.


One ex church member, who asked not to be named, said: “This woman spent most of her life at the side of the current leader and hundreds of hours with Cruise and other household names.


“She knows every secret worth knowing and where every skeleton in the church’s history is buried.”

                                 Katie Holmes’ ‘career plans worry Cruise'

Katie Holmes' reported new career plans have allegedly annoyed Tom Cruise.

It was recently suggested the actress was considering re-training as a lawyer after famously divorcing Hollywood star Tom last year.

Katie won sole custody of their daughter Suri in the legal proceedings - which were finalised in less than two weeks.

There has been much speculation that the former couple differed on raising six-year-old Suri as a Scientologist, which is Tom's faith, and now Katie's new career plans are said to be angering her ex-husband as he thinks they shed a negative light on him. It's also thought that Katie's brushes with the controversial religion are one of the reasons she is considering a change of path.

"Katie's at a crossroads. After her [recent] Broadway show was pulled, she sat back and thought hard about what she wants to do with her life. She's a really intelligent woman, and while she loves acting, she wants to use her brain and the knowledge she's gleaned from her divorce to help others. I think this is all part of the post-divorce 'life-over' Katie's doing in a bid to step out of Tom's shadow," a source told British magazine Grazia.

"She also wants to write and direct movies. With her experience she could write a film based around a mother leaving Scientology.

"I'm sure Tom feels it's sending the message that she had to escape him, when he feels he was very democratic about the divorce," a friend of Katie's added to the publication.

However, the brunette beauty seems to be determined with her plans. She reportedly feels she can really help women who are in the same kind of position as her.

"Katie's saying she's read so many stories in the papers about women leaving Scientology and having to leave their children behind when they go that she wants to help," another friend continued.

                                                       Katie Holmes to tell all: 12 month contract over!

http://womansday.ninemsn.com.au/celebrityheadlines/8674824/katie-holmes-tells-all-12-month-contract-over

Tom Cruise’s closely guarded secrets are set to be laid bare by the woman who knows him best – his ex-wife, Katie Holmes. Tom’s obsession with Scientology, his three marriages and subsequent divorces, and even his sexuality have all been the subject of intense speculation for as long as he has been a superstar.

Now Woman’s Day can reveal Katie is preparing to blow the lid off all this and more in a $10 million book deal. A publishing insider from the company leading the bidding on her biography tells us the sure-fire bestseller has the working title Katie Holmes: Living A Lie – but can only speculate about what exactly will be revealed.

“The two biggest stories out there in Hollywood right now are Jennifer Aniston telling the story of how Brad Pitt left home for Angelina, and Katie Holmes giving us the warts-and-all truth of what Tom Cruise is really like in private, in the bedroom, and when he is with his Scientology friends at these secret get-togethers,” says James Alexander, who has brokered several multi-million dollar deals for tell-all books.

“Everyone wants to know if their relationship was a marriage of convenience, whether she was asked to sign a contract like the one Nicole Kidman allegedly signed, whether Tom is Suri’s real father, her experiences regarding Tom’s sexuality and why she suddenly snapped and fled with Suri.” With the first anniversary of their 2012 split looming, the time is almost ripe for Katie, 34, to finally open up about the most spectacular marriage fallout in recent Hollywood history. “The moment the 12-month confidentiality clause from their divorce proceedings is up, Katie can sign the deal and make it official and she’ll be $10 million richer,” says James.

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are set to become the laughing stock of Broadway after it was announced a production based on their stormy six-year marriage and world of Scientology will be shown there.

The TomKat Project has already run in Chicago and now theatre-goers will be able to watch the satire at the New York International Fringe Festival.

Both stars are played by actors, as is their seven-year-old daughter Suri. Other characters include 51-year-old Cruise’s divorce lawyer Bert Fields and his best man David Miscavige.....

                                                        Katie Holmes afraid she's being stalked by Scientologists?

Katie Holmes' security team are worried Scientologists are spying on her.

Photographers on the set of the actresses' latest film 'Miss Meadows' in Ohio were approached by a guard on Monday, who probed then on whether they were part of the Church of Scientology. According to the MailOnline the guard allegedly said Katie's security team had been told to 'keep our eyes open for anything suspicious and to report it.' Once the brunette beauty's six-strong security team was sure the photographers were not Scientologists they appeared relaxed and let the star to walk from the base camp to the movie set.

A photographer explained: 'When security knew we were only trying to take pictures it definitely seemed to make a difference to how she and seven-year-old Suri (Katie's daughter) are moving around. Katie was previously being ushered straight into a vehicle and we hardly saw her, but now she seems less anxious.'

Katie's spokeswomen has since denied her team have been on the lookout for Scientologists.

Katie was enlisted to the ranks of Scientology after marrying Tom Cruise - who she has seven-year-old daughter Suri, with - but it is believed religious tensions led to their divorce in 2012. The Church of Scientology was founded by American science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard who claimed that extra terrestrial beings were sent to planet Earth by intergalactic ruler Xenu, who blew up the aliens with hydrogen bombs. These aliens' souls then attached themselves to humans and caused problems that affect the happiness of individuals.

In case you didn't know.

                                                              TomKat Project hopes to play LA




By Nina Metz
Tribune reporter
, October 16, 2013

The legend of Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and their Scientology-approved, celebrity-fueled marriage made for one of the better shows of 2013.  Now “The TomKat Project” (which played at the New York International Fringe Festival this summer after an 18-week sold out run in Chicago earlier in the year) is headed to Hollywood next month. Writer-performer Brandon Ogborn and his Chicago-based cast are looking to raise $15,000 to fund the West Coast production.  If ever a bare-bones storefront show from Chicago deserved to make its mark in LA, this funny, biting satire of celebrity gone mad is it.  Those compelled to contribute can visit "TomKat"'s Kickstarter page. So far the cast is about a third of the way there and their Kickstarter deadline is next Wednesday.

                                                  Document: Holmes left Cruise to protect Suri from Scientology

                                                                      USA TODAY

Tom Cruise admitted in a court deposition that one reason ex-wife Katie Holmes gave for leaving him was to protect their daughter, Suri, from Scientology.

The Sept. 9 deposition comes as part of the actor's $50 million defamation lawsuit against Bauer Publishing Co., publisher of Life & Style and In Touch magazines, which Cruise accused of printing false cover stories in 2012 that claimed he "abandoned" Suri.

In the deposition, in which Cruise was questioned by the publishing company's lawyer, Elizabeth McNamara, Cruise said Holmes broke off their five-year marriage to protect 7-year-old Suri from Cruise's religion. The document was obtained by RadarOnline.

When asked if Holmes left him "in part to protect Suri from Scientology," he said the question and the statement were "offensive."

RELATED: Tom Cruise: 'I have in no way cut Suri out of my life'

"Like with any relationship, there are many different levels to it. You know, I, I find it very offensive. There is no need to protect my daughter from my religion," he said, before answering that he believes it's a "false statement."

But the lawyer harped on the question, asking, "And Ms. Holmes has never indicated in any way that was one of the reasons she left you? … To protect Suri from Scientology?"

Cruise replied, "Did she say that? That was one of the assertions, yes."

He said Suri is not currently practicing Scientology.

In the interview, Cruise also said his intense filming schedule is the reason he didn't see Suri for more than 100 days in the wake of his June 2012 divorce from Holmes. He said he talked to his daughter nearly every day on the phone.

"You have to work at it," he told the lawyer of talking with his child on the phone, which he conceded is not a good enough substitute for seeing her in person. But, he said, "I've gotten very good at it. I tell wonderful stories," he said. "I also find that, you know, Suri is a very happy child, and confident, and has a good sense of herself."

Cruise recently wrote in a court filing for the lawsuit that he has "in no way cut Suri out of my life."

The line of questioning in the deposition was extensive, covering his traveling, filming schedule and private jets.

                               Tom Cruise denies Katie Holmes' claim of scientology as factor in divorce


Tom Cruise has said that Katie Holmes never told him that scientology was a factor in their divorce.

The 'Top Gun' star told the lawyer of Bauer Publishing that it was just an assertion that Holmes left in order to protect their daughter from the religion, and that there are many other aspects to the divorce, People Magazine reported.

Cruise has filed a 50 million dollars lawsuit against the publishing house for their cover stories, which claimed that he "abandoned" his daughter Suri after splitting with the 'Batman Begins' star.

....The last two years have been fascinating for Holmes, as she deftly stays in the spotlight while rarely commenting on her personal life. Even using the word “Scientology” around her is taboo. (Just watch this recent “Today” show interview while she and Matt Lauer awkwardly dance around the topic.) That’s why her turn in “The Giver” is a brilliant move:.....

                  Tom Cruise's Scientology Interfering With "MIssion: Impossible 5"- Katie Holmes Labeled a "Suppressive Person"

So far, Tom Cruise's Scientologist leanings haven't effected the "Mission: Impossible" series.

But that might change for the fifth film- so far, only known as "Mission: Impossible 5." It's become clear online that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are engaging in a messy custody feud over their daughter Suri, and that Scientology may be a part of the battle- and that the battle may now extend into the currently in-production "Mission: Impossible 5."

According to Master Herald, the issue involves Cruise's time as Ethan Hunt, filming in foreign countries- because he's had to leave the United States for so long to film the next "Mission: Impossible," now that he's returned to the country he wants extended periods of time with Suri. And also the Church of Scientology.

And that might not be something that Katie Holmes is comfortable with.

Celebeat adds that Holmes may fear some kind of retaliation from the Church .....
