According to the official Scientology website, Sea Organization is where the highest levels of the religion of Scientology are taught.

As for the members of this organization, it consists of adults and minors who have committed their lives to the volunteer service of their religion. Tom Cruise is considered to be the world’s most known person, who follows Scientology.

The Sea Org is often compared to a boot camp and several ex-Scientologists said they dissatisfied with its military-like conditions, reports TMZ.

The Church website explains that members of Sea Org sign “a one-billion-year pledge to symbolize their eternal commitment to the religion and it is still signed by all members today.”

So, Katie has realized that the only way to save her six-year0old daughter from being shipped off to Sea Org was to file for divorce and seek sole legal custody.

Meanwhile, after filling the papers for divorce on Friday, Katiehired her own security detail and even returned to the public relations agency. The actress also moved out of the apartment that the star couple shared together in New York.

On the same morning the actress unveiled her plans to split from Cruise, Katie and Suri, were spotted moving out of a new luxury apartment.

“The new apartment complex Katie has been looking at has 21 floors and over 300 apartments,” one of the residents told The Huffington Post.

“It has four elevator banks, doorman and concierge service, a fitness center, dry cleaners, its own ATM, storage, expansive roof deck, valet service, garage and even a child’s play room.”

Besides, Katie was also seen with new security guards, not the ones hired by her  soon-to-be ex-husband to protect his wife and daughter.

However, what is the most surprising, it’s Katie’s move to return to publicity firm BWR after firing the talented Ina Treciokas, Sarah Jessica Parker’s longtime image maker and the person she hired after getting together with Cruise.

“I think she wants to return to a simpler time,” a public relations expert suggested.

“It looks like she’s pretending the last seven years never happened. Running back to the folks that looked after her during her ‘Dawson’s Creek’ days. It’s sad, but often someone’s publicist is also their best friend and in times like these, even celebrities want the comfort of what is familiar from their past.”

Holmes has made a public statement about her split from Tom Cruise: she’s no longer wearing her wedding ring, writes PEOPLE. The actress shot a Project Runway without her sparkling five-carat engagement diamond and band since marring Cruise five years ago.

As for Tom, “He had no idea this was coming,” a source told reporters. “He’s totally devastated and heartbroken.”

Katie’s final decision was all hers. “She’s a strong person and makes up her own mind,” says an insider familiar with the matter. And in the choice to end her marriage, “She’s unwavering.”
