The impending Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce apparently has the actress feeling uneasy and convinced the Church of Scientology now views her as a threat.

As such, Holmes believes the church put a team on her tail.

Katie reportedly believes that in recent weeks, as discord between herself and Tom grew and they began living apart - even while both were in New York City in mid-June - Scientology higher-ups have been following her every move.

It's unclear if this is in fact the case, but Scientology has been linked to such activity for years, and sources say "mysterious" men have photographed Katie when she's out, with vehicles spotted near her apartment around the clock.

A white Cadillac Escalade and black Mercedes SUV have been outside her place for the past week. Again, it's unclear who, if anyone, is tailing Katie Holmes.

The actress filed for sole custody of Suri in New York last week, a move Tom allegedly had no idea was coming. His ties to Scientology are said to be a big reason.

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.

A look at the cast of the classic film Top Gun then and now reveals just how little some of the stars have changed since their 1986 heyday.

Some being the operative word here. A quarter century can take a toll.

Tom Cruise looks barely older than when Maverick uttered the classic Top Gun quotes we know and love. His rival the Iceman? Well ...

Maybe Scientology is onto something. That's all we'll say. Scroll down:

Lindsay Lohan says she's gonna be turning over a new leaf in life.

Does that inspired attitude include embracing a new religion?

Reports in recent days have claimed that John Travolta was trying to indoctrinate Lohan, his Gotti: Three Generations co-star, into his religion.

Lindsay Lohan: An Ungrateful Snot?

Sources close to Lindsay say that despite what a fun rumor that is, the actress has no plans whatsoever to become a Scientologist, now or ever.

She hasn't taken any classes with the Church and hasn't even been asked to visit by current members, contrary to celeb gossip floating around.

Lindsay has nothing against Scientology but was raised Catholic and plans to stay Catholic, saying she remains an avid practitioner to this day.

She and John will co-star in the Gotti film, however.

Poor Suri Cruise. Almost five, girl is "suffering the effects" of Tom Cruise's religion, Scientology, according to Katie Holmes' parents and Life & Style.

Scientologists treat kids like adults, "independent individuals capable of making their own decisions," reports the magazine's so-called expert.

For Suri Cruise, that means 1 a.m. dinners, playing with penis-shaped candies and still being allowed to use a pacifier, leaving Katie's folks "really upset."

Suri With Katie

NO BOUNDARIES: That's what Tom and Katie allegedly set for Suri.

"They're very worried that Tom isn't letting Suri enjoy the childhood she deserves because of his Scientology beliefs," says an alleged inside source.

"She often throws tantrums when she's out with Katie and Tom," the insider says, recalling that on March 15, Katie couldn't get Suri into her car seat.

"As always, Suri won and didn't have to sit in her car seat."

Breaking news right here, people. Four-year-old girls can get be temperamental and couples have different ways of raising kids. Stop the presses.

It's been awhile since we've read an old-fashioned Tom Cruise / Scientology expose full of outrageous allegations, but this certainly makes up for lost time.

According to Radar Online, the actor demanded his custom-built bus be the base for Katie Holmes' "Purification Rundown Program" prior to marrying her.

The trailer-style bus was allegedly built by the church's underpaid staffers, who put nearly 9,000 hours of "slave labor into its production for the star.

TomKat on the Red Carpet

The FBI is reportedly investigating the Church of Scientology for human trafficking and using free labor, in part to meet the demands of its celebrity icon, Cruise.

Tom insisted on a custom drawer for his slippers because the neat-freak didn't want anyone walking on the carpet, a former high-ranking church staffer claims.

In an internal email, Cruise's requests for upgrades were outlined, according to the church's former Inspector General Mark Rathbun. So what does it matter?

Tom Cruise, a close family friend of John Travolta and Kelly Preston, is speaking out about the tragic death of their 16-year-old son Jett Travolta, who died January 2.

"I remember Jett when he was born," Cruise said on The View. "I saw him when he was just a few months old. John just adored him, and both of his children, and Kelly."

Jett died on January 2 after suffering a seizure while vacationing with his family in the Bahamas. A private memorial service in Ocala, Fla. was scheduled for Thursday.

"I just don't have the words for it," says Cruise, who was there to discuss Valkyrie, but was clearly choked up talking about the Travoltas. "It's just horrific. Here you have a man, both of them doting parents, they're wonderful people and…"

As for some of the speculation that the Travoltas did not seek medical help for Jett, who had a history of seizures, because of Scientology beliefs, Tom Cruise, also a Scientologist, says the religion does not discourage medical attention.

"That's just not true," he says. "They say, 'Get your physical, get your medication, get your physical illnesses handled.' It's actually the exact opposite."

More than three years after he famously called Matt Lauer "glib," movie star Tom Cruise admitted on Monday's Today show that he "came across arrogant."

"After looking at it, it's not what I had intended," Cruise told Lauer. "That's one of those things that you go, 'I could have handled that better.' I didn't communicate it the way that I wanted to communicate it. That's not who I am."

Cruise said he isn't done publicly talking about Scientology or expressing his views on controversial social issues. But only at the appropriate times.

"I just think there's a time and a place for it," he said. "But when people are tuning in to hear about my movie, that's what I'm here to talk about it."

Rocky II, it wasn't. The star was downright humble this time around. Click to enlarge more Tom Cruise pics on and behind the scenes of the Today set ...

A security guard at Hollywood's Scientology Celebrity Centre shot and killed an unidentified man wielding two Samurai swords on Sunday.

According to police, the man showed up in a red convertible and approached three guards around noon in the parking lot of the castle-like facility - which counts Scientolo-celebs Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise among its guests.

Deputy Chief Terry S. Hara of the Los Angeles Police Department said the man was "close enough to hurt them" when one of the guards took him out.

Asked if the shooting was justified, Hara confirmed it was, saying "the evidence itself, it's very clear. The security officers were defending their safety."

Detective Wendi Berndt told The Los Angeles Times that the man - who was in his 40s - was involved with the church of Scientology a long time ago: "There was a previous relationship. But it is unclear to what degree."

In other news, the Scientology building totally misspelled "Center" on its sign!

Tom Cruise has bigger problems than the fashion sense of Suri Cruise and Katie Holmes (matching outfits, come on). We're talking about bribing judges!

Church of Scientology critic Peter Letterese is currently accusing some of the leaders of the controversial religion (including Tom Cruise) of paying off a federal judge and others to hold up a $250 million lawsuit he filed back in July.

In response to these alleged dastardly deeds, Letterese has amended the suit for an extra $15 million. That's right. He now wants $265 million.

Moving forward with a lawsuit against the famously litigous Church of Scientology is a challenging enough task to achieve, but accusing federal judges of taking bribes would make Letterese’s difficult battle seem impossibly uphill.

The defendants don't seem too worried about it, either.

As an associate of Tom Cruise was quoted as saying:

“Without compelling proof to support these allegations, like video of the judges being handed envelopes of cash, I think he stands a better chance of successfully bouncing down a flight of stairs on his head than he has of winning this lawsuit.”
