EXCLUSIVE

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.

Next time, he should marry a believable transvestite. That way, he can keep up appearances, AND get what he really wants!

Sadly, this may have been a shock to Mr. Cruise, but today perhaps he understands the pain he chose to inflict on his Exes when he left them the same way.

Perhaps his public statements about not wanting more children, where the last straw-esp. given that Ms. Holmes has said that she would like more? Note that she filed for both sole and residential custody-she's not leaving her daughter to be further manipulated and will likely have lots to say once she too-is free of him.

Might be hard. Tom's cousin is the real father. That is bound to come out if this gets messy.

Someone told me that DrLaura already had put Tom Cruise on her popular "Gay List" some time ago.

She seems like a wonderful woman and amazing mother, and there must be some reason for wanting sole legal custody. But it's not easy, legally, to get. I just wish Katie and Suri all the best. I don't think being married to Tom Cruise could be easy.

Kelly = a troll, just look at his/her comments, always attacking someone who comments rather then commenting on the story. Trolls do that. Ignoring you from here on, troll.

She never seemed happy into her marriage. Now she can get her own career back without being controlled.
