Katie Holmes filed for divorce primarily over Tom Cruise“s fierce ties to Scientology, fearing that Tom would drag Suri deep into the church … sources connected with the couple tell our sources.
Our sources say … Katie has never been fully committed to Scientology, even though she has had ties with the church. We”re told the couple had been arguing over Suri — that she”s now of the age where Scientology becomes a significant part of her life.
Sources familiar with the split tell us Katie is filing for sole legal custody — as we first reported — specifically because she does not want Tom to control decisions relating to religion.
Sources have told us that the divorce is NOT about money — we”re told Katie doesn”t need Tom”s money … because she has plenty of it … and will be well taken care of under the terms of the prenup.
To give you an idea of how fierce Tom”s ties to the Church are — a video featuring the actor discussing what Scientology means to him leaked onto YouTube in 2008. You gotta watch the whole thing.
