TomKat Divorce — One Nasty Trial Brewing

Katie Holmes is about to embark on her own Mission Impossible! The actress is asking for sole custody of Suri, so she can get her away from Scientology — but it’s going to take a miracle to make that happen. A source close to the newly freed actress reveals:

“Katie does not want Suri raised as a Scientologist or raised under the tenets of the church. She wants her to enjoy a ‘normal’ upbringing with a wide variety of friends and a good schooling. She believes that will not happen if she is raised as a Scientologist. She is adamant she is going to have Suri raised outside of the church.”

As adamant as Katie is about getting Suri out of the church, daddy Tom Cruise is just as — if not more — convinced that Scientology is exactly what his 6-year-old needs. Our insider says the only way Katie is getting her way, is over Tom’s dead body:

“He [Tom] truly believes in the church and its teachings and truly believes that it is imperative that his children are raised as Scientologists. Tom will move Heaven and Earth to ensure Suri stays a Scientologist, at least until she is of an age to make a decision to leave on her own accord. But until then, make no bones about it, Suri will be raised within the church”

Rumor has it Tom wanted to send Suri away to a Scientology boarding school on a ship! The Scientology ship was the last thing they fought over before the split, and — from what we hear — the fight is not close to being over!

From the looks of it, one nasty trial is coming their way. So fellow gossipers and netizens, get ready to take sides! Who are you betting on — the lovely Katie Holmes, or the drop-dead-gorgeous Tom Cruise?

Katie Holmes Divorces Tom Cruise — Scientology To Blame?

Last week, Tom Cruise took daughter Suri and son Connor to an awards ceremony in New York. Meanwhile, Katie Holmes was on the other side of the planet in Taiwan. The official reason was to promote an ice skating event. Now that Holmes filed for divorce on Friday, according to People, Holmes’ Taiwan trip seems more like a warning sign than anything else.

In recent months, the couple was rarely photographed together, even when the two were in the same city. What has been spotlighted, particularly in the Daily Mail, is Holmes’ recent style. The usually impeccably dressed actress has been photographed looking like, well, a down-to-earth mom. Untucked button-downs, jeans, loosely wet knotted hair — none of which would raise alarm bells unless you were a superstar known for a meticulously managed makeover since her marriage began more than five years ago.

One stressor on the relationship could stem from Cruise’s devotion to Scientology — it’s long been blamed for his split from Nicole Kidman – and the serious allegations of his mistreatment of lower-ranked members of the religious group, as this New Yorker article pointed out.

If Holmes thought her marriage to a superstar would be a boon to her career, she was wrong. Since their union began about six years ago, her professional life has taken a backseat to being a wife and mother. That may have been her choosing, but a recent interview with Cruise in Playboy suggests an unsettled Holmes, who wanted more from her career than just being known as a superstar’s wife.

It’s something Cruise’s second ex-wife, Nicole Kidman, was all too familiar with. When asked in an interview with Vanity Fair whether women could have both marriage and career, she said of her marriage to Cruise: “I think I had to choose. I think (the marriage) would have come down to it. I suppose it wasn’t meant to be.”

What do you think is the real reason why Katie Holmes decided to file for divorce from Tom Cruise? Ladies, would YOU date Tom Cruise despite all the Scientology stuff?
