Tom Cruise Divorce


6/29/2012 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Who wants to bet?..... In time Katie's people will start leaking stories that Tom had and affair.....Then Tom will come out (pun intended) with he had an affair with some actress from whatever movie. Insert the next beard. Tommygirl then has his manly-man PR and Katie cashes her check. Next will be seeing pics of Tom & Suri on weekend visits. See....Everybodies happy!

I think this is his third wife already. I think he blindsided the last one when he left her but she seems happier than ever in her new marriage. I don't think Suri is even his kid. Isn't Katie also pregnant? I wonder if that is even his kid.

I think Suri's father is Chris Klein. That is who she looks like, not Tom Cruise. There was too big an age difference there. I think Tom could have technically been Katie's father as far as age.

He probably used her for his career and image and she used him to not seem like an unwed mother after Chris didn't step up to take care of Suri.

I think she will be lifting Oprah up over her head instead of jumping on the couch.

Wonder if it has anything to do with the John Travolta thing. Cruise and he have both had gay rumors swirling about them for decades...Ya think Katie found out something that she was not supposed to?

Did these two guys hook up atone time?

She broke out of the dungeon in the basement long enough to call a lawyer. Good for her.. Maybe she'll call Pacey and rekindle or be a guest star on Fringe...

What would be the point of the "five-year contract"? What does that do for either one of them to have a marriage of five years? Where's the PR/image/publicity in that? Is he supposed to have a new wife every five years to maintain the image that he's straight? Or what? Those familiar with this theory, please explain.

Wonder if it has anything to do with John Travolta's current problem. Cruise and he have had gay rumors swirling around them for decades...think Katie found out about something between the two guys?

Reportedly, Suri is not Tom's daughter. Katie knows this and will probably use it as leverage. Good luck Katie! Free Katie and Suri!!

Wasn't Nicole granted primary custody of Bella and Connor originally. She lost contact with them. there is an issue (alleged) between Scientology and those who have defected . Technically she may not have ever been a Scientologist, but if she wanted out of the marriage anyhow of someone that high in the organization it is the best to do it now it seems.
