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.

And she should get sole custody being that Tom would make Suri enroll in Scientology LRH schools which brainwash kids. Your blind devotion to Scientology and David Miscavidge ruined your marriage Tom. Admit it! I think Katie did this FOR Suri mostly.

She's now realizing everyone was right & he wants to raise their daughter to be a crazy loon robot like he is with that Scientology. She, I'm sure, wants to be get her out of his clutches to probably go back to being Catholic. I think Scientology is like the mafia- hard to get out.

She fulfilled the contract she signed when she married him, and now can file for divorce and get whatever the contract specified after six years of marriage. That's it.

I'm no Tom Cruise fan, but I could really care less about this talentless broad. I certainly don't want to hear this mess drawn out. She should just take her money and go live in Nebraska somewhere. At least he is a talented actor.

Ever since she married him it looks like she's been turned into a zombie. I bet her parents couldn't wait for her to divorce him...she seemed like a normal person until he got ahold of her.
