Katie Holmes still isn’t truly free from Tom Cruise


OK! (Australia) - - Contents -

For more than seven years, Katie Holmes was watched by Scien­tol­ogy min­ders – that’s what came with dat­ing, and even­tu­ally mar­ry­ing, the con­tro­ver­sial re­li­gion’s most fa­mous mem­ber Tom Cruise, and wel­com­ing his child Suri, now 12. ‘Katie’s ev­ery move was un­der the mi­cro­scope,’ al­leges a source, adding that dur­ing her mar­riage to Tom, ‘Katie won­dered if she was be­ing spied on by church em­ploy­ees in her own home.’

Even now, six years af­ter blind­sid­ing Tom with di­vorce pa­pers, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the re­li­gion are still watch­ing, ac­cord­ing to her for­mer pal, ex-sci­en­tol­o­gist Leah Rem­ini. ‘Trust me, Katie’s not al­lowed to have a meal with me, and we used to be close friends,’ the ac­tress re­veals, adding that Katie prob­a­bly hasn’t spo­ken out against the re­li­gion be­cause she was forced to sign ‘pro­hib­i­tive doc­u­ments’ like non-dis­clo­sure agree­ments. ‘She could lose cus­tody of Suri,’ al­leges Leah, who’s be­come an out­spo­ken critic of Scien­tol­ogy in re­cent years. ‘It’s quite sick, re­ally.’

The church called Leah’s claims an­other one of her ‘ridicu­lous rants’ in a state­ment, and ac­cused the host of the TV doc­u­men­tary Leah Rem­ini: Scien­tol­ogy and the Af­ter­math of spread­ing ‘myths and tales [that] are grow­ing more bizarre by the day’. And Leah’s claim that the 39-year-old star could lose Suri

is ex­treme, con­sid­er­ing Tom, 56, hasn’t been seen with his daugh­ter in pub­lic in more than five years, says the source.

But the im­pli­ca­tion that Katie can’t openly so­cialise with peo­ple who are crit­i­cal of Tom’s re­li­gion can’t be dis­missed. ‘Tom does still have con­trol over Katie,’ the source al­leges of the con­ces­sions the ac­tress makes to keep her ex happy.

Lim­it­ing who she meets with is bad enough for the Lo­gan Lucky star. But Katie al­legedly has to watch what she says, hence why she’s re­main­ing tight-lipped about her time with the ac­tor. ‘She’s been muz­zled about say­ing much about Tom or Scien­tol­ogy, as part of the agree­ment she signed af­ter she filed for di­vorce,’ says the source. ‘And those agree­ments don’t have an end date.’ So Katie’s be­ing care­ful not to rock the boat. ‘She suf­fered such trauma be­fore and af­ter the di­vorce,’ the source al­leges.

Still, ac­cord­ing to the in­sider, mum-of-one Katie has no re­grets. ‘She still feels di­vorc­ing Tom was the best de­ci­sion she ever made,’ tells the source. And with ev­ery pass­ing year, she finds more hap­pi­ness, in­clud­ing her de­ci­sion to be more pub­lic with beau Jamie Foxx, 50.

‘But most of all, she just loves be­ing a mum to [her daugh­ter]. Suri is Katie’s world,’ says the source. ‘Katie’s great­est re­venge on Tom is that she and Suri have such a great life to­gether.’


‘My child is the most im­por­tant per­son to me,’ Katie says
