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.

Why is it "interesting that they wore their wedding rings this week." They don't want jackasses like you up in there business every ****ing second. If they didn't wear their rings, you ****ing know you guys (TMZ) would have some bull**** to say causing problems like you do to people in their everyday lives. *******s.

Am I missing something, but didn't this chick know about his religion and the implications should they have children. She should not be granted sole custody because she knew better and she had Nicole Kidman example. She was not going in blind.

Tom should marry Octomom now. A match made in heaven. Both Batsh*t crazy. Octomom will finally get the fame she wants, Tom will have more kids than he ever dreamed of and a ready made cult.

Suri looks just like her father, TOM Cruise. This breakup is really too bad. There are quite a few years difference between them. I hope they can work things out. And BTW, I bet NK would love to have TOM back. She looks so sad with KU.
It's unfortunate that people use these forums to ridicule and say mean things about others. This is going to affect several people's lives, including 3 innocent children.

That's why women in Hollywood marry. To give birth to a child and then use that child to get as much money from the guy.

Maybe now Tom will see Katie is no innocent angel. How she cause division among his adopted children and never wanted them as part of her family with Suri and Tom. This divoce came about because of those pictures of Tom holding hands off camera with another woman and laughing out in public with her. Katie is extermely jealous and the only person she wanted to share Tom with was their daughter Suri. People looking at Tom like he is the controling one but its two sides to this story. And Katie is smart she plans on taking him to the cleaners with as much as she can possibly get through Suri. Ms. Katie is not a sweet person just because she looks sweet and smiles shyly their is another side to Katie and Tom is about to see the real Ms. Holmes.

I am glad she finally woke up, 5 years too long. I hope she gets sole custody, as Suri is not his. Scientology will fight to keep her money. Maybe he will come out of the closet and not have to sneak around with the boys.
