A few days after her impending divorce from Tom Cruise became public, Katie Holmes is now asking for sole legal and primary residential custody of Suri.
And while her divorce papers are citing irreconcilable differences, rumors are pointing to Scientology as the main cause of the divorce.
Katie Holmes reportedly feared that Tom Cruise was planning to send their 6-year-old daughter to the Sea Organization, a place where kids are sent to live without their parents and learn the highest levels of Scientology.
“There is no way her advisers will not be putting Scientology at the very core of this divorce,” explained Mike Paul, a prominent New York crisis manager. “The only possible reason for Katie to push for this is that she fears for the emotional wellbeing of her daughter. Suri is at an age where she will be becoming more and more involved with the church and Katie clearly wants to make the break before her daughter is dragged into Scientology.”
Katie Holmes has now moved out of their home and is living with Suri in a New York apartment.
