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.

Sole Custody = he cheated and/or doesnt want to be with her anymore.

Katie deserves to be with the father of her child, Chris Klein and Tom deserves to be with John Travolta. They can all be happy and vacation together in the Hamptons.

"His Gayness" needs to declare which side he plays from and why 3 different women appear totally "unsatisfied".

I dont believe she orchestrated this..Tom has a time limit with anyone and her time ran up..Since hes been with Katie his movies havent done as good in America and obviously there was a problem they havent even been seen together.I think he made a deal with Katie,file I will give you some custody and wont sick my attack dogs on you..If she was really that mad she would not have been still seen wearing her wedding ring..This is Tom Cruise after all the man with confidentiality clauses and gobs of lawyers..

I'm surprised they lasted this long. What a spectacle he made of their courtship. And she looked so naive through the whole thing. Now look where they are. I bet Oprah is trying to set up an interview with Katie right now. What happened Tom? Puppet got away.
