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.

I had forgotten all about TC jumping on Oprah's couch like an idiot. Will they make a movie of TC's life? LOL

Tom Cruise is a nut case, Katie is smart to leave and try and raise that girl without his crazy input!

It has nothing to do with Scientology. He was bored and she knew it. He probably had an affair...with Travolta! LOL No, but he probably was fooling around. The usual scenario.

I'll bet she has some stories to tell, though, about Scientology, but she will not because she knows the repercussions. :-/

Katie had better watch herself, I doubt Lord Xenu will allow her to take one of his sway from the church.

Don't count on him coming out. These guys are ENTRENCHED. He'll do this to his fourth wife, and I wouldn't be surprised if he has six or eight before he reaches his sunset years.

This is so sad. I have such high regard for Katie Holmes. Tom Cruise must have pulled a doozie for her to up and divorce him. I'm dying to find out what happened. Hate to say it - but fat chance Katie Holmes is getting sole custody of Suri. Tom Cruise is a good father. He's liable to get joint custody of Suri. Regardless, I feel badly for them both.

For starters, she was probably tired of him insisting she be called Kate and not Katie. Woulda ticked me off.

I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did. He's weird. And he made her weird . . . er. She was a little off at first too. Good luck to Suri.

well, that's the thing about your 'stories', TMZ..you never get the facts correct. you just post whatever sticks without fact checking anything. Kinda like your last BS story about Ann Curry leaving NBC, etc...and throwing in all your BS conjecture comments, which you know nothing about!

Relationships, marriages end every day....it's their business, who cares!

Also, you nutballs saying Tom is gay, again, you're all like cult followers, you all have NO clue, not one or have any confirmation that Tom Cruise is gay so STFU already, morons!

I hope they can work things out for the sake of their daughter. Whether they stay together or divorce they both need to put her first. Whatever happened between them is what I would call 'grown foks business'. The little girl needs BOTH her parents unless something is going on that necessitates another arrangement. I'm sorry for everybody concerned. Not an easy situation to go through publicly.

How can he be "blindsided"? How could he not know that his wife is this unhappy? Oh, wait, I know why. Tom has his head up his azz and thinks of nobody except himself. When he's not busy making craap movies, Tom gets all up in people like Brook Shield's business and bashes her for taking medication for her post partum depression. Instead he should be worried about himself and his own stupid, miserable life. Three marriages???? What an effing LOSER!

Tom has ruined this girl. She used to be so cute and full of life. She looks old, haggard and miserable since marrying this turd. Her parents must be so relieved to get this Martian out of their family.

Go back to your Catholic faith Katie, raise Suri as a Catholic and forget about this uneducatecd, closeted gay POS. We all do stupid things in our youth hunnie. Chalk up marrying this midget as youthful stupidity and go on with your life and never look back.
