Scientology doesn’t like messy celebrity divorces
Katie Holmes reportedly divorced Tom Cruise last year over his deepening involvement with Scientology and his plans for their daughter Suri to join Sea Org. Previously Catholic Holmes has allegedly insisted on an ‘ironclad’ clause in the divorce settlement which means Suri isn’t permitted to attend anything Scientology-related, while ex-scientologists have claimed to have seen internal memos which discuss ‘discrediting’ Holmes. Usually when a spouse becomes disillusioned with Scientology their partner is encouraged to ‘disconnect’ them, but Cruise doing this to Katie and his daughter would be a major PR disaster for the organisation. As Nicole Kidman once rejoiced, at least Katie Holmes can wear heels now.
