“Katie’s father and mother are in constant communication with their daughter,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com. “They are being told what she is doing and where she is with Suri. One of Katie’s bodyguards is also calling her father throughout the day and night to inform him of Katie and Suri’s physical location and there is an electronic security log that Katie’s parents receive that is updated hourly.
“Katie is taking these extraordinary measures for obvious reasons,” the source explains. “She knows now that in the eyes of Scientology she is the enemy. Her father advised her to spare no expense in hiring the best security team possible. Katie has no plans of living like a recluse, she is going out in public with Suri, just as she normally would, just with a few more bodyguards now.”
Katie cleaned house recently, firing her publicist and old bodyguards and hiring a whole new team.
“Katie’s past bodyguards were Scientologists and she just didn’t feel that she could trust them, so they were fired the day before she filed for divorce. Katie already had her new team in place and Suri was already in the new apartment when Katie told the old team their services were no longer going to be needed. Katie was at the apartment she shared with Tom and when she stepped out into the hallway she had four new bodyguards that took her downstairs, where she got into the car and drove off to her new life. It was very, very dramatic,” the source says.
“Katie was incredibly strong throughout but she was obviously rattled. She walked in the door of her new apartment and was met by Suri who had been watched by at least four new bodyguards as well. It was something out of a movie and she knew there was no going back,” the insider says
Holmes filed for divorce June 28 in New York citing irreconcilable differences. She is seeking full custody of Suri.
