Well, the divorce agreement might have been signed and sealed, but that doesn’t mean Katie Holmes is completely free from her old life with Tom Cruise!
Escaping Tom's reigns proved rather painless and well-planned and now, it’s seeming like breaking free from the grasp of the Church of Scientology might not be that difficult, either — thanks to her celeb status!
A former spy for Scientology, Nancy Many, revealed just why Holmes might have an easier time than others, explaining:
"Katie is in an incredibly wonderful position. A, Suri is too young to have been fully indoctrinated, and B, she is sitting in the power position because anything they do is going to be public."
Many, who has done work with celebs at Scientology's Sea Organization, believes that Katie shouldn’t have a problem breaking free from the religion.
She also thinks Katie made the right decision, by cutting ties with Tom and his Scientology ways before Suri was enrolled in the religion’s teachings.
"This is about the time children start going to the big Scientology schools so it is no coincidence that she left now. It is also very telling that they say Tom was the one that was loosey goosey with her when Katie was trying to discipline, that’s a Scientology thing. Children are looked on as adults in little bodies.”
Once a follower and now an ex-Scientologist, Many knows firsthand just how creepy and cray the Church can get, once one of its members tries to leave it.
She says although she wasn’t harassed nearly as much as others, her phone had been tapped and she had even been FOLLOWED!
Katie clearly knew what she was doing in planning out her whole divorce strategy and we’re SO glad she did!
Now let's hope that Suri is kept far, far away from any auditors or Scientology spies!
