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.

Harvey-have your courthouse spies check for a real marriage certificate or divorce papers. That ceremony in Italy was for show. It didn't meet the requirements of Italian law. They said there was a prior private civil ceremony in CA, but I doubt it.

Katie got tired of all of Tom's gay escapades. These women make deals for these sham marriages to gay movie stars.

How did he not see this coming when 5 years ago many of us knew it. This marriage was all to dispel the Gay roomers. Just another scam marriage setup by Scientology.

Sole custody? Good luck with that. The cult of Scientology will make sure that never happens. This is all something Katie should have taken into consideration from the very beginning. The one I feel sorry for is Suri. That kid is screwed either way.

Why do these people get married,its like saying hey lets rent each other for a couple years then find someone else,can anybody stay together,I think u should sign a marriage contract that lasted 10 years and was renewed for another 10 years.other than your mate cheating on u is the only way for divorce,irreconcilable difference means things stop going your way so u quit,nobody sees how it affects children in the long run,how sad,people who have everything have nothing.
