An insider close to the couple claims Tom was set on sending his 6-year-old daughter to a hardcore Scientology boat/organization, called Sea Organization, where Suri would be raised by
Xenu Scientologists — not her parents.
"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."
That does NOT sound like an awesome childhood!
It's not our place to judge how someone wants to raise their child… but if you ask us — sending a kindergardener to a military-style boarding school on the high seas, to be raised by people who sign a contract to work for the ship for a BILLON years is borderline abusive.
If Tom really wanted to send Suri to Sea Org — we do noooot blame Katie for jumping ship!
