Katie Holmes Sues Star Over Drug and Scientology Claims

katieholmes.jpg
Katie Holmes has sued the publishers of Star Magazine for libel, Entertainment Weekly reports. Star printed the story, "Katie Drug Shocker" and refused to retract it after Holmes asked. The story revolved around "Ms. Holmes' controversial use of the Scientology 'e-meter,'" which American Media, Inc. says is "is a matter of significant public concern." Katie Holmes is best known for her [redacted] to Tom Cruise, and shares his beliefs that [redacted] come from [redacted] in volcanoes.

Katie Holmes released the following statement about the suit:

Of all the fabricated stories that continue to be published about me, this instance is beyond the pale. The publisher knew this outrageous story was false and printed it anyway to sell magazines.

American Media, Inc. responded:

Many ex-Scientologists have testified that the e-meter sessions have mood elevating effects. The cover and the inside article discuss these effects. Our attorneys look forward to deposing Ms. Holmes about her experiences with Scientology and the e-meter, and expect that the case will be promptly dismissed by the court.

While Ms. Holmes is clearly [redacted], she has remained [redacted] through her very public marriage. Her relationship to Scientology is a terrifying example of [redacted] 's effects on [redacted]. One can only hope that [redacted] comes to [redacted] in the [redacted].

Praise [redacted].

American Media, Inc. response is about as mature as the "Leaders of Anonymous"

Yeah sure, just like your leader David Miscavige playing musical chairs.

I agree with Katie, that piece took the price. I read it on a german front page some days ago too, and I wondered how far off from truth one can wander without looking utterly stupid as a paper.

Regardless of whether Katie is addicted to Scientology auditing, the celebs are treated much better than their non-celeb members. Danile Montalvo was forced into slavery by Scientology at the age of 5 and only escaped last year at age 19. He got virtually no education and often worked 100+ hours per week or even days at a time with no sleep. At age 15 he cut off part of his finger while operating a notching machine. With the help of other former Scientologists (including actor Jason Beghe) he is suing Scientology. There are many more like Daniel still inside. Help shut down this dangerous, criminal cult.

the previous guest commenting "I'm not a big fan of Scientology but you know those journalists and their crimes." is very likely a scientology plant. only these people would insert the word "crimes" as such into their assertions. a commonly asked question in scientology auditing "security checks" include the the question "what are your crimes?" this is also a question very commonly directed at critics; all of this is because of hubbardian dogma that suggests that anyone criticizing the church has "hidden crimes". look this stuff up, its incredible! anyway, the previous guest is probably some poor OSA or sea org schmuck who has been commanded to sift through the internehts and post such comments always directing suspicion at those asking any questions...poor folks indeed...but alas, as hubbard said, what's true for you is true.........

The Star should have done their homework.

WHAT IS THE E-METER AND HOW DOES IT WORK?E-Meter is a shortened term for electropsychometer. It is a religious artifact used as a spiritual guide in auditing. It is for use only by a Scientology minister or a Scientology minister-in-training to help the preclear locate and confront areas of spiritual upset.

In itself, the E-Meter does nothing. It is an electronic instrument that measures mental state and change of state in individuals and assists the precision and speed of auditing. The E-Meter is not intended or effective for the diagnosis, treatment or prevention of any disease.

In order to understand how the E-Meter works, it is necessary to understand some basic Scientology concepts.

There are three basic parts of Man—mind, body and thetan. The thetan is an immortal spiritual being—the individual himself. The thetan inhabits a body and has a mind, which is a collection of mental image pictures.

The pictures in the mind contain energy and mass. The energy and force in pictures of painful or upsetting experiences can have a harmful effect upon an individual. This harmful energy or force is called charge.

When the E-Meter is operating and a person holds the meter’s electrodes, a very tiny flow of electrical energy (about 1.5 volts—less than a flashlight battery) passes down the wires of the E-Meter leads, through the person’s body and back into the E-Meter. (The electrical flow is so small, there is no physical sensation when holding the electrodes.)

When the person thinks a thought, looks at a picture in their mind, re-experiences an incident or shifts some part of the reactive mind, they are moving and changing actual mental mass and energy. These changes in the mind influence the tiny flow of electrical energy generated by the E-Meter, causing the needle on its dial to move. The needle reactions on the E-Meter tell the auditor where the charge lies, and that it should be addressed through auditing.
