Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes Divorce: Scientology Fears Prompted Her to File, Blindside Actor

by at . Comments

Katie Holmes surprised many of us by filing for divorce from Tom Cruise, but the apparent reason behind her decision would likely be anyone's first guess.

Scientology.

Sources say the Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce is happening for precisely that reason, specifically her concern that Suri will be introduced to it.

Their daughter is now six, the age where Scientology will begin to be a major part of her life, and Katie fears Suri will be dragged in too deep.

Holmes has never fully committed to Scientology, TMZ reports, despite her ties with the church and more than five years of marriage to Tom.

Many observers felt their marriage would never work for this reason; Katie respected Tom's beliefs, but raising their child his way a different story.

As she's grown, the couple had been arguing over Suri with greater frequency, and Katie eventually filed for divorce to protect the little girl.

A key detail in the Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce filing was the location in which it was filed: The 33-year-old actress made if official in New York.

She does not want Tom, 49, to control decisions relating to Suri's religion, and feels N.Y. is far more likely to grant her request for sole custody.

Holmes reportedly is not after money - she had plenty before they got married and there's a prenup in place anyway - just little Suri Cruise.

Tom deeded their NYC apartment to Katie last year, reportedly for tax purposes; she's using it to establish residence, and file for divorce, in the city.

What is Scientology and is Katie right to be running scared? You will surely have plenty to say about it in the comments, but we leave you with this:

Out of respect for you and your spells I must make this testimony know to all. I've been to other spell casters and psychic readers before, but in my opinion you are the best. I just wished I came to you earlier, but hey I got the best for last and that is Dr Stanley. My ex was gone for a year and I went everywhere and other spell casters for help but no result until my friend introduce me to Dr Stanley. After that Love Spell and Break Up Spell was done I finally gotten calls from him out of no where within one week. Him and the other lady broke up and we are going on a vacation together just the 2 of us in a week... Thanks and I love you for helping me. To everyone who is looking for a real spell caster contact drstanleyspelltemple@gmail.com he will help you..........James Faith

My name is ALISON from England, would want to tell you all that i was able to put an end to my divorce issue and restore my marriage again, because i never wanted it to happen. i don't know what came over my husband that he was filling for divorce, i tried to talk him out of it when he told me and he didn't listen to me, i had no other option than to seek for the help of a spell caster and now am glad i did. Because if not for the help of spell, i don't know what would have become of me by now because i loved my husband so much that i couldn't stand loosing him. The spell worked like magic with the way and manner my husband change and started showing love instead of the divorce he was planning. i just too happy that everything is in place for me now. I would gladly recommend the use of spell to any one going through marriage problems and want to put an end to it. [ agbalaxy@gmail.com was were i got the help to restore my marriage]

@ Macarol: One thing I DO know about it is that is is NOT just for the rich. Sure the rich donate money to the causes they believe in, but I actually know one scientologist, and even tho I still don't completely get it, I know he never has to donate anything. And btw... He is a very smart and inteligent man. Very good father to his children and there is nothing creepy about him. So that is why I doubt so much scientology really is creepy... If I need to use him as a reference, it doesn't sound so brainwashing or scary.

When I turned against Tom was when he criticized Brooke Shields when she revealed her Post Partum Depression following the birth of one of her children. He said he'd studied all about it and it was something that could be helped by Scientology, and I saw that as a bunch of bull and him as someone with a big mouth and no clue. The last thing a woman needs to hear about is a man's opinion of a female illness. You've got to live it, not read about it in a book Tom. And I found myself hoping at that time that Katie never suffered from any female illnesses or afflictions cause she'd get no understanding or sympathy from him. How Nicole put up with him for as long as she did, I'll never know - she must have the patience of a saint.

I feel so sorry for him as I would for any zealot anywhere. People so warped by their beliefs that all common sense goes out the window. From his over devotion towards his religion to the way he has had Katie followed by those goons to try and intimidate her clearly there is something very wrong. Nicole kidman went through something similar in that detctives followed her to find dirt and her phones were tapped something she brought up in an interview. So scary...
