0629_katie_holmes_tom_cruise_sole_custody_divorce_suri
Katie Holmes is the one who filed for divorce and Tom Cruise was "blindsided" by Katie's legal move ... TMZ has learned.

We know Katie filed the divorce docs in New York on June 28, citing "irreconcilable differences."  She is asking for sole legal custody and "primary residential custody" of the couple's 6-year-old daughter, Suri.

We also know Katie is asking for a "suitable amount" of child support .. this according to the divorce docs.

Katie also asks for a division of property in her divorce docs, although we know there was a significant prenup that is based on California law.  Katie makes no mention of the prenup in her filing.

We're told Tom is "very sad" and "did not see this coming." He was spotted wearing his wedding ring just this week while filming in Iceland. Interestingly, Katie also wore her ring this week.

0629_splash_tom_cruise_juneWe're also told there is some "nastiness" here, evidenced by Katie's move to get sole legal custody.

Tom's rep has released a statement saying, "Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children.  Please allow them their privacy to work this out."

Katie's divorce petition was filed anonymously, without names.

The only thing that's surprising is that it took her this long. Did he forget to lock her cage when he left?

Really!?    

Not really surprised. She never looked happy in any pictures I've seen of her. Hope the divorce doesn't get too messy for Suri's sake.

Of course she wants sole custody - to get Suri away from that cult! Look what happened between Nicole Kidman and her 2 kids with Tom - she didn't get to see them anymore.
Fight for her Katie! and run far far away! Don't let the cult get her!

I have never liked Katie Holmes more than I do today. Suck it, Scientology!

Legal custody would allow her to make educational and religious decisions for the child - which makes sense in this instance because his other kids are educated at a Scientology school and practice that "religion".

The cult will brand Katie Holmes a negative person, or repressive, or whatever the hell it is, and will try to take Suri. This is going to be ugly
