Katie Holmes will spend the summer shooting Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark in Australia. She arrived with Tom and Little Sci today in Melbourne, were spotted at the private airfield and taken to Crown Casino to meet up with Tom’s longtime friend Jamie Packer. 

Jamie Packer is a super rich dude – family used to be the richest in Australia. Has had some recent financial troubles and – oh no! – his wealth has dipped under $3 billion. The things the obscenely wealthy obsess over, non? 

Anyway, for years Tom Cruise was said to be recruiting Packer – and his bank account – on behalf of Xenu. And for years it was working. When Packer’s telecommunications company went bust several years ago, Tom swooped in with auditing advice from the Church, and Packer was then seen often in LA at the Celebrity Centre taking lessons. 

Then something happened and Packer apparently was able to escape from the Xenu hypnosis. 

But the economy broke. And you know Xenu loves the vulnerable. And so they say they’ve dispatched their top recruiter back to Australia to see if he can lure Packer back. So while Katie’s working, Tom will be working too. 

Chills, chills, chills…
