Four years on from ending her marriage with Tom Cruise, it seems actress Katie Holmes could finally be ready to open up about her experience with the Church of Scientology.
While it has long been speculated that the star ended both her relationship with the controversial cult and the Mission Impossible star over fears that their daughter Suri would be turned against her, until now she has remained silent on the issue.
But – according to Radar Online – that situation could soon be in for a change as the clause in her divorce contract which has until now kept Katie quiet is set to run out in 2017.
A source told the celebrity gossip site that the 37-year-old star cannot take her rumoured romance with Jamie Foxx public until next year because her quickie divorce settlement states she is forbidden from talking about Tom and Scientology or publicly dating another man until five years after their divorce was finalised.
The source said: “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.”
“She’s allowed to date, but she cannot do so in a public fashion, and she’s not supposed to let any boyfriend near their daughter, Suri,” they claimed.
Apparently if the Dawson’s Creek star was to break the terms of their divorce – which was finalised just ten days after being filed for – she would risk losing Cruise’s financial support.
Because Katie’s deal with her ex runs out next Summer, she will then be free to take any romantic relationship she may have public and to reveal all about Tom and his beloved religion.
