Katie Holmes

My Marriage to Tom

Was Kaput in 2011

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

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.

The only way for Tom Cruise to retain any respect at all is to not fight Katie Holmes. Scientology is an insane and ruthless cult. He was an idiot to ever enter it, and if he tries to bring his little daughter further into it exposing her to "audits" and other integrity-****tering experiences, it would be abuse. Seems his other two children have already been subject to it.


Katie knew he was a scientologist, but she could not have fathomed how much the cult would force its way into her and her child's everyday life. I root for her, and for once I'm glad the paps are around to see what's going on, at least when she's outside. Glad she filed, glad she changed her security.


I think Tom should leave the cult, let them spill the dirt they have on him, take the other two kids and move to New York and make a new life for himself and them. And leave primary custody to Katie. But I'm afraid he doesn't have the brains, courage or heart to grow up make the move.

Two words: Lisa McPherson.

Ask that name to any Scientologist and they will literally turn tail and run. Ms. McPherson was at the Clearwater, FL headquarters and suffered a "breakdown" of sorts that wound up with her dead. The questions have never been answered however this is no religion it is a cult. From the way all their members in Clearwater dress in what almost look like Air Force uniforms to just their general demeanor. Run Katie run and take Suri as far away as possible.

Don't let Tom holding Katie's hand mean anything because it doesn't. Alotta guys hold your hand and are affestionate in public BUT in private it's just the opposite.

Yup    

There's more to this story than she's telling. If her marriage was "broken" in 2011, what's she doing out with him, holding hands 2 weeks ago? Or, since she had already rented an apartment on the sly, did she do that only to make him not worry until he was out of town & could file divorce without him being around? If that's the case, then she's one calculating manipulative bitch...

In my humble opinion.... Hold on there... stop and think. If Katie was REALLY concerned about her daughter...
she would have left Tom WAY before she completed her 5 year pre-nup, which allegedly gives her 18 mil $$$. I've seen reports that she is going to get 15 to 20 mil... and almost no reports to the contrary. She could have at least saved Suri 6 months ago.

You and I do NOT know the relationship between Tom and HIS daughter Suri. Personally, anytime I have seen him speak on TV, about his daughter , he just gushes over her.... you can see it on his face... and it's NOT acting.

The dude is a hard worker, puts food on the table, keeps a roof over them, and at least loves his daughter as much... if not more... than his soon to be ex Katie. Like I said, she could have left TOM way earlier... she has money from her acting jobs.

Safety NOT MONEY should have been Katie's concern about Suri. She waited until the pre-nup kicked in.$$$ to file for a divorce.
To me, that does not sound like someone truly concerned about her child.
She has her own money AND her father is an attorney, and she could have left Tom way earlier to protect her child. It sounds like a money grubbing scam to me. Greed knows no bounds.
Pre nup or no pre nup, if you really truly feel that your child is in harm's way... you act on it and get her out of harm's way... EVEN if it means you are not going to get 18 mil $$$ as part of the 5 year pre nup agreement.

Also, sounds like Katies Public Relations person is just trying to manipulate the media to give her an edge in court.

Guys can be bad in relationships/family... but so can women. There are more than enough stories out there where women murder their children.

Fade to black.... roll credits....

Funny how what goes round, comes round - remember how he "blindsided" Nicole by filing for divorce? Tom, you knew there was problems in your marriage for a long time but your ego refused to admit it. Good grief, just look at photos of her, she ismiserable.

While walking down the street one day with a buddy a really cute girl asked if we'd like to come up and talk with some people. At the time we were about 17 and she in fact was VERY cute so we did. We didn't know anything about Scientology nor did we care....she was as stated CUTE! Anyway, we gave fake names tried to pick her up and it didn't work so we left. I am now 55 and my mother STILL gets junk mail at her house from these people for me to this day. I have never answered any of this mess yet a few times a year in 2012 they STILL have this fake name on a mailing list and send out junk.... AMAZING!
