As if you haven’t heard a lot of the sordid details surrounding Katie Holmes’ split from Tom Cruise, the former couple are featured front and center on the latest cover of “People” magazine.
Remember when Tom and Nicole Kidman split and he had the jump on her, surprising her with the divorce filing? Well, it appears that Katie has the upper hand in ending the relationship after being married to Tom for five years. It was something that we all saw coming, considering how deep he is into Scientology and it was too much for the actress.
A source said that Tom was busy filming his latest movie, “Oblivion” in Iceland and was caught off guard by Katie’s decision to leave him. The source said, “He had no idea this was coming. He’s totally devastated and heartbroken.”
“People” reports that Katie’s father Martin, who’s a lawyer, came to her aid in New York to help her plan her exit from their high-profile marriage. The source added, “She’s a strong person and makes up her own mind. She’s unwavering.”
“TMZ” reports that it all came down to Tom’s urge to get Suri into Sea Org for her indoctrination into Scientology. They report:
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. The Freewinds, the massive Scientology boat that was the location of Cruise’s infamous birthday party in 2004, is entirely staffed by Sea Org members.
Can you blame her for not wanting her daughter to go to this place? It sounds like a cult place that brainwashes children. What do you think? Was Katie Holmes right to file for divorce from Tom Cruise in the wake of this new information?
