This does not appear to be the mind of a paranoid person. People who have photographed Katie multiple times tell TMZ there have been several "mysterious" men and vehicles around Katie's apartment and following her when she's out.
WORRIED Katie Holmes is convinced she is under surveillance by private investigators hired by Scientologists. Two mystery men were first spotted allegedly keeping watch on her at Tom Cruise’s New York home — days BEFORE she filed for divorce from him.
And when Katie and daughter Suri, six, moved to a secret apartment in the Chelsea district of the city, the creepy pair suddenly appeared outside. A source said: “About three days before the divorce was announced a Mercedes SUV was sitting outside Tom’s apartment in Greenwich Village.
Who are you? ... New York cops question the men in the Mercedes“They were sat about a hundred yards from the house — a couple of suspicious-looking characters in sunglasses. When Katie came out they tried to discreetly follow her. It was obvious they weren’t paparazzi or Press. "They looked like former military or police and were carrying a small pocket digital camera.
She was so spooked by the presence of the “spies” she asked her security people to take pictures of them and called the police. The source added: “Katie’s security came out and started recording the men. “Then police were called and went to the car to ask them what they were doing.” A second car — a white Cadillac SUV — has also been allegedly used to keep watch on Katie, 33.
The actress believes Scientologists put investigators on her tail after realising her relationship with Cruise was breaking down.

The term Fair Game is used to describe policies and practices carried out by the Church of Scientology towards people and groups it perceives as its enemies. Founder L. Ron Hubbard established the policy in the 1960s, in response to criticism both from within and outside his organization. Individuals or groups who are "Fair Game" are judged to be a threat to the Church and, according to the policy, can be punished and harassed using any and all means possible. In 1968, Hubbard officially canceled use of the term "Fair Game" because of negative public relations it caused, although the Church's aggressive response to criticism continued.
Applying the principles of Fair Game, Hubbard and his followers targeted many individuals as well as government officials and agencies, including a program of covert and illegal infiltration of the IRS and other U.S. government agencies during the 1970s. They also conducted private investigations, character assassination and legal action against the Church's critics in the media. The policy remains in effect and has been defended by the Church of Scientology as a core religious practice.
