As one of the most widely reported splits in recent memory heats up, one half of the TomKat party; Katie Holmes, reportedly has fears for her privacy and safety after being convinced that she is being secretly probed by Scientology private investigators.
However, Gary Soter, lawyer for the Church of Scientology, tells TMZ that the Church of Scientology is not following Katie or conducting surveillance on her in the wake of her divorce with Tom Cruise.
No need to worry about Katie though, she’s said to be doing just fine. A source revealed to Us Weekly, “she’s been miserable for a long time, but the last couple of weeks, she’s been happy — like she’s been set free.”
Tom Cruise was spotted returning to Reykjavik airport in a helicopter while filming on his new movie in Reykjavik, Iceland on June 30, 2012. Tom seems to be getting back to business even though his wife Katie Holmes filed for divorce.
So what went wrong in the marriage?
Holmes struggled to ever settle in their Los Angeles mansion. Cass Mapother is a key figure here, Tom’s sister – and she and her three sons share the house with Tom and his two adopted children Connor, 17, and Isabella, 19. But Miss Holmes never felt that the massive mansion, stuffed with bodyguards, was her home. Everyone who came through the doors was a Scientologist.
Recently, Holmes was convinced Tom Cruise was going to send 6-year-old Suri away to a hardcore Scientology organization known as Sea Organization, TMZ reports.
Sea Org, as it is known, is where the highest levels of Scientology are taught and kids as young as five can be sent to live there, without their parents. Supposedly Tom is a big fan of Sea Org.
Katie and Tom had been arguing over Suri’s indoctrination into Scientology, and Sea Org was the flashpoint. The Sea Org has been often compared to a boot camp and several ex-Scientologists (including Oscar winner Paul Haggis) have been outspoken against its military-like conditions.
Sounds like fun!
