Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes's amicable divorce 'a sham as actor plans to keep daughter Suri in Scientology'
07:42 GMT, 12 July 2012
Katie Holmes was so adamant that Suri won't have anything to do with Scientology, she insisted on an 'ironclad' clause in her divorce settlement from husband Tom Cruise, preventing her daughter from being involved in the controversial practice.
But according to new reports, that is not going to stop the Top Gun star from indoctrinating the six-year-old into the faith.
For it has been claimed that the so-called 'amicable divorce' between the former Hollywood couple is a sham.
Tom's plans for Suri: According to new reports Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise's amicable divorce is 'a sham and the actor is still planning to indoctrinate Suri into the Church Of Scientology'
In the centre: The controversial religion has played a huge part in the couple's split
According to Star magazine, the 50-year-old actor has planned Suri's indoctrination into the religion for many years, and will not go down without a fight.
'Tom will do whatever it takes to make sure he comes out on top,' a source told Star.
'Everything is going on the line – the homes, the jets, the money in the bank. He’s worth up to $250 million, and he’s made it clear that he’s willing to spend every last cent fighting for Suri.'

And according to an Us Weekly report, before the couple's split Tom had already began the controversial audit practice, which aims to cure emotional and mental problems and set them on a path enlightenment, behind Katie's back.
'Tom was beginning to audit Suri behind (Holmes’s) back, a source told the American magazine – a claim strenuously denied by Tom's spokesman.
'You get asked really intense things (during auditing) – and Suri is only 6! Katie saw a difference in Suri.'
Protective mother: Katie reportedly does not want Suri to have anything to do with Scientology
After Katie blindsided the star with the divorce last month, Tom's reported shock turned into anger.
'What really shocks him is how
meticulously she planned this divorce, when all the while she was
telling him she loved him. He’s devastated by that, and that devastation
has turned into anger,' a source told Star magazine.
Katie and Tom reached a settlement on Monday, just two weeks after Katie initially filed for divorce.
She now has primary custody of their daughter Suri, with Tom allowed visitation rights.

According to reports, Katie is so
adamant that Suri won't have anything to do with Scientology that she
insisted on an 'ironclad' clause in her divorce settlement from Tom to
prevent her daughter from even attending parties, if they have any link
to the controversial religion.

Suri is also reportedly forbidden from going to any of the organisation's churches.
Under terms of the settlement, Suri
isn’t permitted to be exposed to anything Scientology-related, and this
includes going to any Scientology churches, parties, etc.
'Katie made sure that this was ironclad in the agreement,' a source told Radar Online on Monday.
Tom's reported plans for Suri also come as it is claimed that Katie registered with a Catholic church in New York.
According to a new report, the actress has formally confirmed her return to Catholicism by signing up to the Church of St. Francis Xavier.
And Katie's decision to register as a parishioner at the church has been met with excitement by the congregation.
One member of the church choir told the Huffington Post: 'Everyone is thrilled to have Katie join us.
'She has not yet attended a service, but when she does she will be welcomed with open arms.'
On its website, the Church of St. Francis Xavier, which dates back to 1847, 'strives to be a prophetic, welcoming community, inclusive witness to the presence of Christ Jesus in our midst', according to its mission statement.
The actress' decision to register with the church is sure to be seen as her final way of distancing herself from Scientology.
Her latest move was thought to be a sign that Suri would follow in the actress' Catholic footsteps, rather than follow her father and his devotion to Scientology.
But according to new reports, the actress may well be in for a long battle with her former husband.
