Katie Holmes

May Have SCREWED Tom

By Filing in NYC

Katie Holmes
' master plan to file for divorce in New York may have created HUGE tax problems for Tom Cruise ... sources connected with the couple tell TMZ.

TMZ broke the story ... Katie filed divorce docs in NYC, in large part because she wants sole legal custody of Suri and New York courts are way more likely to grant Katie sole legal custody and control over child-rearing decisions than California courts.

But here's the problem ... sources connected with the couple tell us ... Tom has been trying to do everything legally within his power to avoid strong ties to New York City because the tax rates are ridiculously high ... and he does not want any appearance that he or Katie have been living there.

But here's the thing ... TMZ has obtained documents which show Tom deeded their NYC apartment to Katie last August and our sources say it was done specifically for tax purposes. Point of fact ... the deed lists a transfer to a trust, but TMZ has confirmed it's a trust established for the benefit of Katie.

Sources say Katie is using the apartment to establish residency in New York for the purpose of the divorce -- something we're told can screw Tom tax-wise.

It's pretty clear ... Tom is not gonna let Katie dictate New York as the venue for the divorce. He clearly thinks Cal-i-for-ni-a's the place he outta be.

It's very likely the only time she has screwed Tom. The world knows Suri is not his biological child. We all know Nicole can have children, so it has to be him who is sterile.

Cruz paid Holmes for 5 year contract.
After agreed upon years of “marriage”
Contract ends Holmes is paid huge balance

For her part in the “charade”.
Allegedly “Scientology” Is logical reason for “divorce”.

Tom “plays” for the other “team” and not attracted to women.

backfire    

Katie Holmes married Tom Cruise knowing she would have to give up her religion and become a Scientologist. We know she also wanted to be wealthy and have stardom of her own. I can't help but think how cold she is to blind side him and plan a strategy to rake in the money and take his child away asking for sole parenting. She was shadowed for years by scientology people and didn't seem to mind until her films were duds. I don't understand but then again, I'm not walking in her shoes and don't know what her life is like.

If Tom wants his career to survive, he will give Katie what she wants and be a nice guy about the whole thing.

Tom Cruise should get his hands on the photo of Katie letting Suri eating penis shaped gummy bears to their next court date. Any woman who would let their child eat something like that is a ****ty mom.

Someone needs to point out to the judge, why are there so many pictures of Katie and Suri out in circulation. What kind of mother would let her child be photographed time and time again. Shouldn't she be shielding Suri from all the paps, in order to give her a "real childhood". Instead she paraded Suri around town, in order to attract attention. What kind of celebrity mother does that? Does she really have Suri's best interested at heart? Hmmmm..........

I wonder what he did that pissed her off so much to just walk out. If you think about it, its very calculated and cold. She knew all about Scientology before she married him. And was willing to embrace his beliefs. I really don't think she is all that innocent, really who says I love you and then just walks out the door, seems like she has not loved Tom, and did not even try to seek out marriage counseling. It was just so cut and dry. But I really don't know anymore then everyone else, I feel badly for them all... Maybe Tom should take off a year from work and become a full time husband and father that's whats more important.

Based on my personal experience and observation ,as an ex-scientologist on Tom Cruise, he is a complete criminal. Tom Cruise PR himself as a "nice guy" for public but only those who have been very very close to him can tell how abusive and psycho he is.
Now poor Katie is followed by church's and Tom's hired Private Investigator. This exact thing happens daily to anyone who has truth to expose, including myself.
