Tom Cruise: Split not about Scientology

2012-07-06 08:37
Los Angeles - Tom Cruise doesn't believe Katie Holmes filed for divorce because of Scientology.

The former Dawson's Creek actress submitted papers to end their five-year marriage at the end of June.

Despite claims that Katie's concerns their six-year-old daughter Suri was to be subjected to auditing and sent to the Sea Organisation - a floating Scientology school - were behind her decision, the 50-year-old actor is said to think the claims about his religion are being made to "hurt" him.

A source close to Tom told TMZ: "[Katie] was totally committed to Scientology. She had enthusiasm for it and would voluntarily and gladly participate in it when Tom was off shooting movies.

"This is not a fight over religion. It's being used as a way to hurt Tom."

Beefed up security

Despite Tom's apparent belief, Katie has reportedly stepped up her security amid fears she is being "spied on" by Scientology leaders, with her parents receiving hourly reports on her whereabouts.

A source told RadarOnline: "Katie's father and mother are in constant communication with their daughter. They are being told what she is doing and where she is with Suri.

"One of Katie's bodyguards is also calling her father throughout the day and night to inform him of Katie and Suri's physical location and there is an electronic security log that Katie's parents receive that is updated hourly.

"Katie is taking these extraordinary measures for obvious reasons. She knows now that in the eyes of Scientology she is the enemy. Her father advised her to spare no expense in hiring the best security team possible."

    I think its age related with Tom Cruise, as the divorce always occurs when the wife is 33. Might be even built into the prenup!

    I have once spoken to a paparazzi and apparently those in the know, know that Tom and Travolta are birds of a feather, know what I mean...Not saying anything wrong with it, but to marry and have children just for appearances/image/fans/money is not right.

      Groping and mauling masseurs and hotel staff because you are frustrated by having to hide your true sexual nature is also wrong. Why can 't they just accept who they are, instead of lying to themselves and everyone else?

    I've read about the religion of scientology,they are led by a certain Ron L Hubbard,a man of very dubious character.the groups main income comes from money they extort from their high profile members on whom they have a hold by threatning to expose their dirty little secrets(they knew all along John Travolta was gay and used it as a weapon to keep him in the cult),they are continiously spying on their members and prospective wealthy members always digging up dirt.furthermore they also swindle the elderly and the naieve out of their lifesavings,by sometimes persuading people to take out bonds and secondbonds on their homes.A sick evil bunch of people indeed,way to go Katie give them hell!!
