- Katie Holmes
Katie Holmes believes Scientology now views her as a threat to the organization and has put a team on her tail ... sources close to the actress tell TMZ.
We're told Katie believes in recent weeks -- as the discord between her and Tom Cruisegrew -- Scientology has been following her moves, especially in New York City.
This does not appear to be the mind of a paranoid person. People who have photographed Katie multiple times tell TMZ there have been several "mysterious" men and vehicles around Katie's apartment and following her when she's out.
Specifically ... a white Cadillac Escalade and black Mercedes SUV (see above) have been seen near Katie's NYC apartment for the past week.
FYI -- there is a publication that has put a tail on Katie, but the people doing that are separate from the people Katie believes have been dispatched from Scientology.
I don't think I personally know anyone who is a Scientologist. Anyone have any first-hand insight?
I dated a Scientologist in high school. Cute. Crazy as a loon. Most of my information is second-hand, at best, though.
That is one crazy organization. They court celebrities -- throwing lavish parties, benefits, etc. on big name scientologists -- because they believe that celebrities can help sell their scam to the masses. They treat their celebrity devotees like royalty, and their run-of-the-mill devotees like slaves. They are also notoriously hard on people, even big-names, that turn on them. They'll do orchestrated smear campaigns, slander lawsuits, etc. I wouldn't doubt that they view her as a threat, and that they'll keep an eye on her.
They've got themselves quite a racket. Its a wonder they haven't been rung-up on charges of organized crime and racketeering.

Are you talking about Scientologists or Democrats?
I'm not so sure I'd rely on the accuracy and probity of TMZ's intelligence gathering.
A real conspiracy theorist would asset the two vehicles were planted by her divorce lawyer to give credence to the claim that "Scientologists" were harrassing her.
And somehow, I think the publication with "a tail on Katie" just might be TMZ.
Given that the pic of the white vehicle showed the driver reading The National Enquirer...
I rather liked the "tourist" NYPD ball caps on the dash of the black vehicle...
Scientologists run smear campaigns. To go even further down the rabbit hole, look up a man named Jack Parsons. He was the father of the U.S Solid Rocket Program and JPL.
Wouldn't it be funny if there were two reporters trying to investigate this story by following Katie and one would talk about the scientologists driving a black mercedes and the other talking about the scientologists driving a white cadillac?
