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.

If she wants custody,then she should get nothing! no money,just nothing! it sickens me that our goverment would even entertain the thought of granting her "sole custody" but hey ! I guess thats the world we live in,were some women think that they own everything but yet they won't let your wallet go for nothing in the world! GOD BLESS AMERICA! I bet she gets everything that shes asking the courts for because the courts always seem to work in most womens favor.

Obviously, Tom Cruise is not good husband material! He can hang for a few years, but then he's out of there. At least, that has been his MO! He has been married to some really pretty, intelligent, hot, great actresses! What goes wrong? We never did get any answers for the real reasons for his divorces! Who is the culprit? Is one or the other cheating? Do they just fall out of love? Is it to much time apart because of their careers? Mr. Cruise should stay single. I'm sure he has broken some hearts, especially his childrens. Marriage is not for him.

Being with a man who spends more time looking in the mirror than at you is not very flattering. All the plastic, nipping and tucking in the world won't make Tom feel young like Katie. He broke so many promises to her, how could she trust him when all he can do is be concerned about his faltering career and questionable Scientology leadership? As a mother she obviously wants more for her child.

YOU GO KATIE, YOU DESERVE TO GET YOUR OWN IDENTITY BACK AS WELL AS YOUR CAREER. HE OBVIOUSLY IS SO INTO HIMSELF AND ISN`T HELPING YOU WITH YOUR CAREER. IN MY OPINION, TOM CRUISE HAS AN EGO THAT NEEDS TO BE DEFLATED AND STOP USING THE WOMEN HE MARRIES, TO HIS OWN ADVANTAGE , CAREER WISE. KATIE YOU DESERVE TO BE HAPPY AGAIN. IN THE PICTURES OF YOU AND HIM, YOU LOOK AS IF THE LIFE HAS BEEN SUCKED RIGHT OUT OF YOU, YOUR SPIRIT HAS DIED AND YOU HAVE BECOME SO FRAIL LOOKING SINCE YOU MARRIED TOM CRUISE . THE ONLY TIME YOU LOOK HAPPY IN PICTURES, IS WHEN YOU`RE WITH YOU BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER, SURI. I DON`T REALLY LIKE HIS ACTING. LOOK WITH WHAT HE DID TO NICOLE KIDMAN, HE RIPPED HER HEART OUT AND TOSSED HER ASIDE LIKE SHE WAS NOTHING AFTER 11 YEARS OF MARRIAGE. I DON`T CARE HOW RICH OR HOW POOR PEOPLE ARE, MARRIAGE IS 50/50 , YOU`RE SUPPOSE TO SUPPORT EACH OTHER, NO MATTER WHAT. FROM WHAT I READ YOU ARE THE ONE DOING ALL THE SUPPORTING OF HIM IN HIS CARREER, WHERE`S THE SUPPORT FROM HIM, I CAN`T SEE ANY. SO, KATIE, YOU DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO TO GET YOUR SELF-ESTEEM BACK UP AND YOUR CAREER BACK ON TRACK AND GET YOUR SPIRIT BACK.

What is it with Tom and Roman Catholics? First Nicole then Penelope now Katie. Why doesn't he make his life easy by finding a nice Scientology girl? Or aren't there any?

I am not surprised by their divorce but I am surprised by the request for sole custody. I always got the feeling he was a good father.
