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.

Regardless of the fact that the majority of the population doesn't think Tom is the biological father, myself included, he's the only father she knows.

It's because they didn't do enough cover together. Paris Hilton should do a cover with AfroJack.

What goes around comes around, I guess. Tom did the same thing to Nicole. Blindsided her. I always knew this marriage was somewhat of a sham and this was inevitable, but somehow I thought the Scies would be able to drag it out longer than 5 years...

I thought that Tom's influence over Katie was shown when Katie did not appear in the second Batman movie. I then started to wonder how long this marriage would last.

Reenacting scene from Family Guy: (Katie's ankle bracelet breaks off) Katie: "Oh my God, I'm free!" (Katie lets speedo-wearing guys out of cage) "The forcefield is down! GO NOW!!!"

He should he sad. He needs to get OVER HIMSELF and stop thinking he's in control of EVERYTHING IN HIS LIFE. Good to see him slammed. He deserves it. He's an arrogant, self-centered *******.

So Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise are divorcing, rumour has it, Katie wanted another kid but Tom thought it was ''Risky Business'' and that his ''Top Gun'' wasn't like it used to be and to be quite honest he thought the chances of pregnancy was ''Mission Impossible''. Katie was like well we could get a sperm donor coz there is ''A Few Good Men'' out there. However Tom made it clear he wanted his ''Tropical Thunder'' inside her ''Magnolia'' and Katie knew he had ''All The Right Moves''. But it wasn't meant to be ''Endless Love'' and now she is divorcing the ''Legend'' for ''The Colour Of Money'' and whilst she sees ''Vanilla Sky's'' in her future, Tom only sees ''Collateral'' and ''Oblivion''. :D
