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.

Tom has learned since his quick divorce filing from Nicole. He took a publicity hit for that one, so this time the agreement stated that when the time came, it would be Katie who signed.

Better suit up with a good lawyer Tom. Katie's striking like a nasty c.nt.

Although, she did decline to go after 50% of his B.a.t.s.h.i.t C.r.a.z.y.

Weirdo Tom probably wanted the child more involved in Scientology crap, and Katie finally woke up and smelled the coffee!

I would imagine Cruise is a pretty difficult guy to live with. I remember seeing Nicole on Oprah years ago and vividly recall her saying "nobody says no to Tom". They divorced shortly after. I bet Tom and his ego are looking for #4 right now.

Also, Tom wasn't blindsided. He knew it was coming - he gave Katie the option of a bigger payout in January if she waited to file for divorce until then.

The only thing that surprises me is that she didn't do it sooner. He's an egotistical idiot and belongs to "that chuch" which is no good. Good for you Katie. GET THE HELL OUT.
