Now that the cat is out of the bag and it has been announced that Katie Holmes has filed for divorce from Tom Cruise, sources are starting to tell what’s going on behind the scenes. It’s pretty clear that the main reason for this divorce is that Katie was tired of having her every move watched, analyzed and corrected.
In other words, Katie was sick of having her life run by the Scientology cult and its dictates. Tom is well known to be Scientology fanatic and while Katie is also a convert to the cult she obviously has enough. Ultimately, no one likes to be controlled and sitting in the lap of luxury with Tom just wasn’t worth the sacrifice of a real life for Katie.
RadarOnline says: “When Katie first met Tom she was blown away by him,” the source says. “She had idolized him as a child and then here she was, with him, in person. Tom turned on the mega-watt smile and the amazing charm that he is capable of exuding and Katie was totally caught up in it all. He totally whisked her off her feet, romance, love, private jets, shopping sprees, all the razzle dazzle that goes with being an A-lister, Katie got caught up in. The next thing you know, she is pregnant and then she’s getting married in this fairytale ceremony — she literally didn’t have time to breath, let alone take stock of the situation.”
How are Katie’s parents reacting to all of this? If I remember correctly they never liked Tom and saw the writing on the wall right from the start.
“Obviously, Martin and Kathleen are sad that Katie is having to go through all this emotional turmoil and that she is going to be a single parent, but it’s not like she is going to have to go it alone and she certainly won’t have any financial hardship to worry about.
Both Martin and Kathleen had very strong reservations about Katie marrying Tom, but she was an adult and they obviously couldn’t stop her from following her heart. It’s been tough for them over the past five years to watch Katie be controlled by Tom and they really felt that they had lost their daughter to some extent. So, that’s the one bright side to the divorce — they feel like they’re getting the old Katie back again, the strong, independent willful Katie that had all but disappeared since marrying Tom.”
Back in her Dawson Creek days Katie spoke of her tight-knit family and how close she was to her mom. Those ties may have been shelved for a while but I’m betting they more than have her back now. It sounds like her attorney father is out for blood now.
“Katie’s mom and dad are providing as much love and support as they can to their daughter and their granddaughter and are trying to make it as easy a transition as possible. And, one thing is for sure, Martin is going to do everything in his power to make sure his daughter gets everything she wants from the divorce. He is NOT going to allow her to be bamboozled and bullied anymore.”
