Cruise control: Moving on

If you've stood in a supermarket checkout line recently, you'll have read the news: Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce.

The tabloids are wondering what role Scientology—for which Cruise is famously a poster boy and evangelist—has played in Holmes's decision to divorce the 50-year-old movie star.

As Hollywood gossip queen Bonnie Fuller, put it, “I think there’s going to be speculation about, ‘Does Katie want custody because she doesn’t want [Suri] to be raised as a Scientologist?’”

There may be some of that, of course, but more than likely the divorce proceedings stem from more ordinary incompatibilities.

Two things seems likely: one, that a pre-trial settlement will ensure Cruise and Scientology keep the curtain firmly pulled across their activities. And two, that it will cost Cruise a lot of money.

“There is no truth whatsoever to the TMZ.com report (or any other report) that the Church of Scientology has sent anyone to follow or surveil Katie Holmes.”
