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.

Am I surprised it didn't work out? No. Am I surprised that Cruise ALLOWED her to file? Yes. I thought he would beat her over the head with Scientology threats for the rest of her life to prevent her from ever leaving.

So happy to see this one! Maybe John Travolta drove a Scientology wedge into Katie's traditional idea of fidelity

She married him and turned into a zombie...I bet her parents are thrilled she's dumping this manipulative weirdo and hopefully getting their daughter back. She seemed like such a normal girl until he got ahold of her. I bet he's gonna make her life more miserable now because of the custody request for the daughter...you wait. His ego cannot handle this....she one-upped him alright.

She deserves kudos for lasting this long - sure it has not been easy for her.

If Katie caught him with a man, I don't see how the cultists could stop her from having it her way. She should just out him already, anyway.

Unless Tom is actually an unfit father, filing for sole custody is just nasty. People need to think of their children first and what is best for them. Is taking your daughter away from her father really the best thing to do?

Katie's next film will be entitled: "Escape from xenu" in 3D.

In the words of Tom Cruise when Nicole said she was blindsided, "he knows full well why."

SOLE CUSTODY? After seeing him with Suri all over while on locations/filiming?
Nothing worse than a bitter soon the ex using the child against the father..... Cash out and move on. Hes tired of you.

Would you want your daughter to be raised in that crazy cult of Tom's? Of course not. Not surprisingly she is seeking sole custody. Hopefully, his followers don't abduct her and brainwash her.

I guess her contract with him was finally up and she decided not to renew.
