Katie Holmes To Spill Scientology Secrets In 2017?

Katie Holmes leads a very private life, and she acts with such high levels of secrecy in her personal life that she can’t help but draw attention to herself, attracting the very paparazzi she seeks to avoid. Now, as 2016 draws to a close, new details about Homes’ divorce from superstar Tom Cruise suggests that Katie’s efforts to keep things from the media and from the public may not have sprung entirely from her own volition. Certainly, Katie has endeavored to keep daughter Suri Cruise away from the media for her own benefit, but, in discovering the details of her divorce settlement, it’s been revealed that much of Holmes’ other activities have been the result of Cruise’s settlement stipulations. That all comes to an end in the very near future.

What Secrets Will Katie Holmes Tell?


Katie Holmes has kept many of the details about her marriage to Tom Cruise secret and has been equally protective of whatever Scientology details she may possess, but Esquire reveals that her oath of secrecy may be null and void in 2017. Considered one of the fastest divorces in Hollywood, Holmes filed for divorce from Cruise in 2012 and the settlement was finalized within 10 days. Katie was in a hurry to get the matter put behind her and to keep Suri Cruise, who was 6 years old at the time, away from the public drama of a divorce battle.

In order to obtain that quick divorce settlement, it’s reported that Ms. Holmes agreed to some terms she might have otherwise contested, including signing a five-year confidentiality agreement that has prevented Katie from talking about her marriage to Tom or about any knowledge she has of his involvement with the Church of Scientology. Reports also indicate that the divorce settlement stipulations prevent Holmes from dating anyone publicly through that same five-year period, meaning Katie’s efforts to keep a romance with Jamie Foxx secret was not entirely her idea. Holmes was also prevented from introducing Suri to any love interests.

“Katie wanted out of the marriage so badly, she agreed to the terms—and got $4.8 million in child support, plus another $5 million for herself,” said a source, according to Esquire.

Breaking the contract would mean Holmes would have to forfeit the divorce and child support payments from Tom Cruise, but that agreement comes to a conclusion in 2017. No longer bound by her divorce agreement, Holmes is free to talk openly about her marriage and whatever Scientology secrets she may be guarding. That’s not to say Katie will dish the suspected dirt, especially after five years of peace, but there is the possibility that Ms. Holmes holds so much animosity towards Cruise that she will feel the need to vent the truth.

Ms. Holmes may also be eager to spill what she knows in an effort to lend credence to previous Scientology whistleblowers, such as actress Leah Remini and Ron Miscavige, father of Scientology head David Miscavige.

Suri Cruise Is Already Rebelling Against Katie Holmes


The Cruise rebellion continues, but this time, it has to do with style and fashion, as opposed to the more serious conflicts over Scientology. Katie Holmes revealed to Us Weekly that her daughter, 10-year-old Suri, is expressing herself with her own sense of style, rebelling against Ms. Holmes’ unique fashion sense. While Suri’s closet is filled with apparel from big-name labels, such as Marni, Dior, and Burberry, Katie says her daughter definitely has her own sense of style.

Of course, Katie doesn’t see this as a bad thing, particularly since Holmes’ own mother had also encouraged her to express herself freely during her own childhood.

“[She taught me that] being true to yourself is beautiful,” Katie says of her own mother.

Kathleen Holmes, Katie’s mom, has always been a big part of the All We Had director’s life, especially recently, as Katie wanted to take the extra time to help her mom celebrate a birthday. The two were even together for the Us Weekly interview and Kathleen was eager to reveal that she has learned as much from her four daughters and one son as she has taught them.

“I think the girls help me out,” Ms. Holmes said of Katie and her siblings. “They taught me!”
