Katie Holmes may have reached a divorce settlement with estranged husband Tom Cruise, but BBC journalist and Scientology documentarian John Sweeney says the 33-year-old actress' troubles are far from over.

"The very worst thing for Katie – according to former members of Sea Org, the church's holy order, that I've been in touch with in the past few days – will be the terror that her own secret thoughts about sex and love and despair may come out into the open," he wrote in a column for The Independent.

According to Sweeney, the Church of Scientology records confessions of its members using an E-meter "for technical purposes"; they are then kept within the organization.

Though spokespeople for the religion have denied claims the recordings will be offered to the public when a member is excommunicated, the private details of former Sea Org member Amy Scobee's love life were somehow released.

How will Scientology affect Holmes' life after Cruise?

"She must be very afraid, but I can't help feeling that what she is doing is right and brave and good," Sweeney wrote.

The British journalist experienced being in the church's crosshairs five years ago after documenting the religion, and he says Holmes might face the same treatment.

"Private investigators whom I believe were working for the Church chased me around the streets of LA, invaded my hotel at midnight and put me under surveillance at breakfast. Strangers spied on my wedding and knocked on the doors of my neighbours," he wrote.

"They spied on me in Britain. I've heard from a solid source that the Church hired a team of private eyes here. I know the name of the company and have asked the House of Commons select committee on private investigators to look into it, with no success."

Sweeney has one bit of advice for Holmes now that she's lost one of Scientology's greatest allies -- aka her former husband.

"Do not doubt the power of the Church of Scientology," Sweeney warned in his column. "I want to write a book about my experience of the Church, and thus far every single publisher we have approached has turned me down."

    how wonderful and insightful of Katies parents to be a support for their daughter, to be able to pull Katie and Suri out of a religion that is more controlling than Catholic faith. For Katie to have the wisdom to pull out now prior to Suri getting controlled by Scientology seems to me to be a strong and healthy choice for her and Suri. Having supportive parents close who can advise their young daughter how to safely plan how to counter a controlling husband and controlling Scientology is a gift. I'm sorry for your experience Sue, however not all parents of faith are like your experience

    This divorce seems to have been instigated by Katie Homes meddling and controlling Irish Catholic parents. I know for a fact how tight and enmeshed these families can be. I married into one, thank goodness I am out of it. I feel really bad for Tom.

    It is very sad. But living in Clearwater,Fl., I can understand how Scientology can interfere with a marriage.

    Saddness over the break up of two beautiful people who were obviously very much in love - perhaps they will reconcile, life is too short
