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.

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.

HAHAHAHAHA...wait wait, last line of this post. Katie filed the divorce with Anonymous names? Well now, the only way that TMZ would know it was her and Tom would be why we got the "TOM BLINDSIDED" thread. Cruise's PR team is spinning the wheel of fortune and hoping it lands on "OMG, I feel so sorry for Tom, how victimizing, what a bitch she is" (rolls eyes)

Thank goodness! Kate looked so miserable. And Tom was probably making her follow that whacky Scientology nonsense.
This will be better for Kate and Suri :)

They never looked right together, anyway. Without his lifts, he only came up to about her belly button, didn't he?

-Where do I begin?:
-She refused to drink the Kool-Aide?
-They are splitting like John Travolta's ass from that black massage therapist?
-Come on out now Tom.
-"Just take those old records on the shelf"
- A bad day of Lance Bass fishing is still better than a good day with Katie Holmes.
- He only married her to get to her brother John.
- Now changing his name to "Tom Cruisin'"
- 2007- "Tom Dick or Harry, who shall I marry? I think I'll marry Tom with the Hairy...wallet?"
- Did she catch him digitally remastering just the volleyball scene from Top Gun?
- It doesn't take a rocket Scientologist to figure out the truth behind this.

She's making a break for it! I hope she protects herself, those scientologists SCARY.

She hasn't looked happy in a photo in years even when she smiles. Of course now that she is older and wiser stronger she is making this difficult move. Good for her.

Katie Holmes finally realize that scientology nothing more than a gimmick & a cult and it was time to get Suri out of this brain-washed religion!

Maybe she doesn't want her daughter brought up as a Scientologist and that's why she wants sole custody. She also wants a movie career, and he wants her to be a stay-at-home mom.

Nicole Kidman's career really didn't take off until she was divorced from him.

Tom might be screwin around with underage girls. Just saying...seems like the ones that act so "rightous" are the ones to wonder about. Why is she seeking sole custody? He had to have done something that is so bad and has to do with kids that a she saw fit and has grounds for a sole custody win. Her atty must feel she has strong case to win sole custody. Wow. He's always been a f**cking douchebag to me. No sympathy at all. Just for his daughter. What an *******.
