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.

i personally do not like the way katie appears to be handling the divorce. regarding the father of her child, i would think she would have better judgment as far as blindsiding him (throwing him under the bus). this could come back and bite her in the butt one day. even though we don't know the whole story...i still think you need to be very careful when children are involved.

Tom sure seems to have a problem hanging on to women so maybe he should try men and who knows maybe now he and john can have a go at each other!

You can't hide emotional & physical deterioration. A young woman became visibly unhappy & unhealthy during her marriage to a much older man with several failed relationships. IN THE REAL WORLD, outside of Hollywood, outside of PR BS & Scientology damage control ... It's an easy scenario to understand.

Where did they get this picture? Tom grew 5" since the last picture I seen the two of them in. She's like 5'9..he's 5'7". Must be those expensive "elevator life" shoes.

Cruise has the Hollywood clout to destroy Katie's movie making without a problem. 3rd rate actress to begin with. Ever wonder why his ex wives NEVER say anything "really" personal regarding their marriages? That's the reason.

It's hardly a surprise that Tom was surprised to find his marriage was over. In most divorces that the woman initiates, she's been planning it for a while and the man is clueless that there's a problem.

Which may well explain why the women in those cases initiate their divorces.

The photo from Island doesn't show a particularly happy looking Katie. Given how litigious Scientology is, I'm not at all surprised she took 6 months getting her ducks in a row. She is escaping a powerful cult, after all.

Everyone wants to paint Katie as the victim, when you can see that this divorce was stratagized. Please note that NOBODY was checking for Katie...she was sinking into oblivian. Her acting skills did not have hollywood mesmerized since I can only think of one movie she's done since the wedding.

I think she's a smart cookie. I believe that when she came to the decision to leave, she played it smart. Her behavior did not change while secretly getting her ducks in a row quietly until the right moment! Good girl! I'm proud of her.

I believe it started out for Katie as a childhood dream/crush/infatuation (at that time what girl/guy didnt want to be with TC). She just didn't realize what she was getting into.

All I know is that all of Tom Cruises movies suck!
All crap action trash that's all special effects. I never understood why he's been so popular. His movies in the early to mid 80's were best. He's no Sean Penn!

Seems like Katie is very fake, and knows how to spin a good act. Really to stay with someone telling them you love them and then plotting a divorce in the back of your mind. Now that's pretty freaking cold.

Doesn't anyone else see the tearstains on her face?
