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.

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.

What a shameful, gold digging trollup. Harsh yes, but to take a child completely away from her Dad is insane. Kate knew Tom was in the Scientology church when she met him, dated him, married him and had a child with him. At any point pre-Suri she could have walked away. SHE still can but she doesn't have the right to take away his child. Nicole never even did that! Yet she wants child support, which is where my gold digging comes in. SHAME on her!

hollywood is so backwards. Normal people ALWAYS wear there wedding ring! It's not common for people to take it off & go days without wearing it. Many people eve wear their wedding ring after they divorce.

Ok get a divorce, be a bitch, whatever, but don't be a bitch when it comes to your kids...sole custody? Really he honestly seems like one of the better Hollywood dads...that kinda BS in divorces is unnecessary

When one marries or hooks up with someone significantly younger this typically results in the younger person leaving as the older person gets older!!! In recent years publicly this has been Demi and Ashton, Paul McCartney and what's her why are people surprised at this happening?

Ha! I’ve been a Scientologist for 40 years and it’s made every part of my life better and I've had a lot of fun. Sure, everyone has the right to believe whatever they want and certainly with religion. No one in Scientology would “force” a person to do anything. That’s ridiculous. Check out the REAL website at and find out for yourself but don’t just listen to crazy gossip mags which are only trying to sensationalize everything and anything for profit! LOL - life's too short to not enjoy every moment!

What I Think    

Hopefully Katie will be able to keep her daughter out of the clutches of the cult that is Scientology.

What I Think    

Years ago I read an excellent book titled 'L Ron Hubbard, Messiah Or Madman?'. I wish I still had it. I voted for madman.
