Katie Holmes Scared Tom Would Ship off Daughter
Allegedly the final straw in Katie Holmes' decision to file for divorce was that she was convinced Tom Cruise was going to send 6-year-old Suri away to a hardcore Scientology organization known as Sea Organization.
Org, as it is known, is where the highest levels of Scientology are
taught and kids as young as five can be sent to live there without
their parents and according to TMZ's sources say Tom is a big fan.
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.
The Freewinds, the
massive Scientology boat that was the location of Cruise's infamous
birthday party in 2004, is entirely staffed by Sea Org members.
Katie felt the only way
to save Suri from being shipped off to Sea Org was to file for divorce
and seek sole legal custody.
