The Hollywood fairy tale that seemed to be Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise has come to and end. Holmes filed for divorce from Cruise last Thursday and made the aggressive action of filing for sole legal custody of their daughter Suri.
According to reports, Holmes has been trying to get out of the Scientology-influenced marriage to Cruise for over a year now.
“Every move she made and everything she did was controlled . . . She felt like she was in Rosemary’s Baby,” says one insider, referring to the classic 1968 horror film, in which an aspiring young actress (Mia Farrow) unwittingly bears a child for her husband’s Satanic cult.
Indeed, her shocking divorce filing, which has blindsided a “furious” Cruise, wasn’t simply about the Kennedys star’s own personal contentment, a Holmes source says.
“This is about protecting her daughter,” the insider explains to Us. “She wants to be in charge of how Suri is being raised and didn’t want her to have an exclusively Scientology education.”
The first source puts it more bluntly: “She felt she had to get out to save her daughter.”
