Scientology Denies Following Holmes

The Church of Scientology denied on Sunday reports that they are following Katie Holmes after she filed divorce papers from Tom Cruise. Gary Soter, a lawyer for the Church, contacted TMZ to deny the allegations and say it is not conducting surveillance on the star. Scientology is also reportedly the reason behind their split, and defectors of the religion have previously reported being “hunted down” after leaving. TMZ reported that photographers who have been following Holmes have reported several “mysterious men” and vehicles around Holmes’s New York apartment. Meanwhile, Cruise was sighted in a helicopter flying over Iceland on Sunday—the first time he’s been seen in public since the divorce announcement on Friday.
