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.

All of the John Travolta gossip probably had Katie scrambling. Who wants to be the next Kelly Preston? Maybe now we'll find out who Suri's real father is. That girl is the spitting image of Josh Harnett.

I don't understand why these women do this? why file for sole custody? unless he is liable to harm the child, which I doubt. This is crazy. Divorce fine but just file for joint custody, this is what causes all the drama, no one thinks about the children, you can tell that the little girl loves her dad. Why even go there?

I'm so happy for Katie! Lately she's always photographed in NYC (sans Cruise), looking sad and disheveled. I read somewhere that TC took a huge interest in how she and Suri looked/dressed, because it reflected on HIM. Since she's been looking like shyte lately, I figured that was a big FU to Tom and his image.

Glad to hear girlfriend has come to her senses (or took the 5-yr contract option). She's still young and has a long future ahead of her - a future without Tom Cruise! Life can be good.

Nicole requested shared legal custody and full physical custody. He tried to bury her. I know things are different here, but she needs to watch out!

Sorry, not buying that he was blindsided. He's going to try and pull the Cruise/Kidman route where he blindsided Nik and was vilified for it. Now his camp is going to try and make him out to be the victim. I don't buy the manure that Cruise's camp is selling.

If a DNA test is done, it will be proven Tom IS NOT Suri's real father...Good luck to Katie!

Well, obviously she had to tell all her most personal secrets to the cult of Scientology when she "signed up" so I doubt we'll be hearing much from her. That'll slap a gag on her real fast. Nicole Kidman's still afraid to talk.
