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.

It is obvious that someone with a bona-fide legal background is advising and representing Katie (although it may be a "planning to remain anonymous" advisor). I truly hope that someone outside this sick Scientology force has her best interests at heart. These people are no less bent on domination than the Muslims and that's a truly frightening situation for a young woman and her baby. I wish her team all the best. Tom is sick in the heart and the head. What is wrong with a man in his position, who has access to all the information on this plantet, and then chooses this bad, bad Karma?

I think Scientology is not the real reason; it is Tom's real personality. He is controlling, critical, cruel, degrading, etc. to his loved one but very sweet, helpful, and caring to other people. He can twist the truth to make it look that he's the victim and Katie is the bad person who is not a good mother. Get back that self-esteem and self-love , Katie! I'll pray for you, Suri, own family, team of legal advisers, and security guards to protect you all! Good that you outsmarted him first. Spill the beans if so needed to win your case. Write a book, maybe. Make sure you get all the money and marital assets that you deserve. I know you are not after his money because if you are, you will stay in this bad marriage just like other stupid wives out there. :)

she may be holding his hand but if body language speaks anything, she would prefer to be holding his throat very tightly .

Katie knew what she was getting. She chose to spread her legs and let him bang her every which way. The price: $2 Million per year, per their pre-nup. So if she averaged 1 leg spread and bang per day, that works out to roughly 2,007 leg spreads and bangs, which works out to approximately $997 per leg spread and bang @ 15 minutes per leg spread/bang, not bad for 502 hours of leg spreads and bangs.

Tom is an average actor and an above average creep. Scientology is a cult plain and simple.

Her contract was up, and why is she upset. He gave her a career, nobody was looking for her after Dawson Creek. She be sitting at home starring at a wall waiting for her residual money, praying her agent might call, like the rest of her cast. Thanks to Tom, she will have plenty of FU money and she can be starring at an ocean waiting for the phone to ring instead.

I'm not so much interested in the Tom/Katie saga as I am in what this will mean for the so-called "church" of $cientology. Anyone with the ridiculous notion to compare Scientology to "just any other religion" is either lying or inexcusably ignorant. Sorry, but I've never heard of anyone needing help from the police when deciding to leave a Christian church, nor have I heard of a Christian church hiding their doctrine from members (or ANYONE wanting to know, for that matter.) Ah, but people will still be stupid and purposely over-look these glaring differences when they get the itch to attack all religion because of one screwed up cult.

I WISH KATIE THE BEST OF LUCK...I'M SURE SHE HAS DONE A LOT OF SOUL SEARCHING IN THE LAST 6MOS....DIVORCE IS LIKE A DEATH...IT NEEDS TO BE MOURNED.....HAVING A CHILD INVOLVED IS A GREATER BURDEN..

Do you think William Mapother will finally sue for custody of his child? Suri looks exactly like him.

While it is none of my business I caution Katie to tread carefully. She would not be the first young actress to be taken down by a much older and more powerful actor. His connections to the Church Of Scientology also will prove problematic. Good luck to her. She is going to need it.
