The Church is denying it...
UPDATE:TMZ reports that the Church of Scientology has denied reports that they are following Katie Holmes. The church's lawyer Gary Soter told the site that the Church of Scientology is not following Katie or conducting surveillance on her in the wake of her divorce with Tom Cruise.
ORIGINAL: Katie Holmes believes that the Church of Scientology views her as a threat, now that she's not in wedded bliss with Tom Cruise. TMZ reports that Holmes believes that in the last few weeks as things have gotten more tense between her and Cruise, the church has had a team following her movements, particularly in New York City.
This appears to be more than just paranoia; people who have photographed her several times have reported several "mysterious" men and vehicles around her apartment and following her when she's out and about. A white Cadillac Escalade and black Mercedes SUV have specifically been noted as being placed near her New York City apartment for the past week.
A publication does have a tail on her, but the people involved in that are not the people Holmes believes are following her from the church. Whether the two vehicles are from Scientology or from the publication is unknown. If Holmes can prove that she is being followed then it could help her custody case, particularly if she can keep it in New York.
