Katie Holmes

My Marriage to Tom

Was Kaput in 2011

7/2/2012 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0702_katie_holmes_tom_cruise_articleTMZ has learned ... Katie Holmes says her marriage to Tom Cruise was "irretrievably" broken at least 6 months prior to her filing for divorce ... this according to divorce documents filed in New York.

Sources connected to Tom tell TMZ ... Katie's contention is baffling, because he had "no idea" she was about to file for divorce. As the sources told us last week, Tom was "blindsided" by the filing.

Indeed, take a look at the pic (below) of Tom and Katie strolling the streets of Iceland hand-in-hand a little more than 2 weeks ago.

But wait ... there's more.

0702_katie_holmes_tom_cruise_iceland_splashWe've also learned ... Katie claims in her divorce documents that both she and Tom have been residents of New York for "at least 2 years." Katie, who filed in NYC, must establish legal residency in NY in order for the court to have jurisdiction -- something she wants because New York courts are more likely to grant sole custody of Suri.

No doubt ... Tom -- who shared a home with Katie in Beverly Hills for years -- will fight the residency claim tooth and nail.

I think she probably wanted out 5 seconds after she said I do .

If Tom didn't know something was wrong with their relationship, then he is really stupid. He was not blindsided!!!!! He just didn't think Katie was that smart.

Katie should get FULL custody of Suri as Tom is reported to NOT BE THE biological father. He is sterile.

Katie. Don't underestimate Tom and be careful and smart. I'm rooting for you.

If I recall correctly both Nicole and Mimi were "blindsided" when they found out Tom was leaving them. Perhaps Katie is quicker at the draw than Tom. And Katie doesn't look so thrilled to be walking hand in hand with him, either

Not surprising. Most relationships are over months before one of the parties declares it.

"Kate" knew exactly what she was getting into in 2005,
and what she was going to get out of in 2012.

Boinking a Operating Thetan still beats working 9-5.

She isn't a dummy. It could easily take 6 months to get proper legal advice on how to get away from the clutches of him and Scientology. Good for her.

Stop the cult of scientology religious and tax free status.

Katie always seemed pretty spineless to me, so I'm pretty impressed that she has the ballz to take on both Tom Cruise AND Scientology. These are two very powerful entities - most people wouldn't want them as enemies - and I think it's a testament to her love for her daughter that she is saying FU to Tom and his "church." I bet her parents are thrilled. Stay strong Katie.

If you want to win in a courtroom, the truth is completely irrelevant. It's what you can prove that has importance - and even that can be dismiss in family court!

So your marriage was finish 6 months ago, Katie? You've been living in NYC full-time for two years? Prove it. Hell, better yet, if you can prove Tom used to go to bathtubs with John Travolta, you'll get everything you want and more....

So, does Katie look happy about him holding her hand? Nope. He seems incredibly possessive and maybe if he weren't gone all the time he'd know Katie wasn't happy. I just don't buy the 'blindsided' business.

How is it Tom is taller than Katie in the Iceland photo. Is he having her walk off the curb?
