The Church of Scientology wants it to be known that "there is no truth" to a report that it has a team watching Katie Holmes' every move.
E! News has obtained a copy of a letter sen by the organization's attorney Gary Sote addressing reports that Scientology may have put several unidentified men and vehicles on the 33-year-old actress's tail recently outside her New York City apartment as her marriage to Tom Cruise grew increasingly strained.
"There is no truth whatsoever to the TMZ.com report (or any other report) that the Church of Scientology has sent anyone to follow or surveil Katie Holmes," wrote Sote.
According to reports in TMZ and the New York Daily News, two vehicles, a white Cadillac and a black Mercedes, have been keeping tabs on Holmes outside her New York City apartment the past week while she's been in New York City, though the report acknowledged another publication may be tracking her as well.
The erstwhile Dawson's Creek star, who filed for divorce from her Rock of Ages man last week, had been having problems reconciling her husband's commitment to Scientology before she decided to end their six-year union, a source told E! News. In her filing, she asked for sole custody of their 6-year-old daughter, Suri.
Cruise, meanwhile, was spotted taking a helicopter ride over Iceland on Saturday for his upcoming movie.
