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.

That's just the spin that Tom's people are putting on it. The whole plan must be to make him look like a victim. Blind Gossip reported the split and the exact timing of it more than two months ago. How did everyone know but him? Suspicious!

Ohh wow that means Katie was so over Tom more than 2 years ago, she was just waiting to stablish her residence to gain the right. Smart!
She should have Suri's custody, Tom has no time to take care of her whatsoever. it's better to be with mom and her famliy than a bunch of scientologists robotic nannies.

OH COME ON. . . This shot was a TOTAL SET UP. . he positioned himself to appear taller and then the runt held her hand. ..

What a piece of work. .. .. . He should just find a girl in his cult to marry and stop trying to convince some Christian to become one of those scientology nutters. .. .

Karma for Tom. He blindsided Nicole by filling for divorce after she had a miscarriage. Now she has 2 biological kids and is HAPPY with her hubby.

Something tells me Katie did not sign anything about keeping her mouth shut about Scientology. Something tells me she had her apartment for longer then six mouths

just because he is not biologicaal does not mean she isn't his daughter. genes have nothing to do with it feelings do. he should have a right to see his daughter like every other father.

Their 5 year contract was up and Katie realized that if she didn't file for divorce first, Tom would do his best to get Suri as he did with Isabella and Conor. I'm not a fan of either of these two nutjobs, but I'll be on Team Katie. Scientologists are nothing more than brainwashing wackjobs who bully their followers and children. Take Suri & run Katie!!!

Just by her facial expressions, you can tell she is not comfortable and looks as if she is agonizing over something. .

Scientology my arse. She had no problem with it when she could use it to get him, she converted didn't she. Now she'll use it to get rid of him. She was 28 when she married him, not 18 she knew full well what she signing up for...lot of money, more prestige and fame than she would have undoubtably gotten on her own, and lots of scientology. She's no innocent she sold her self to the highest bidder.

Concerned about her kid and scientology. Well I would think one would have taken her kid and ran after she saw what believing in scientology did to the Travolta's kid. Putting you kid on a scientology boat is peanuts compared to that. Besides his other kids don't seem to have suffered because of his religious beliefs, weren't put on the boat, so what makes her think Suri would be. The headline really out to be Katie's term is up, she's not renewing. Taking the 3mil per year and going for then some.

Yep, she looks really happy in that picture--not. She was obviously keeping things close to her vest while getting her ducks in a row. She obviously has a good team of legal advisers surrounding her and helped her organize things for the split. And who can blame her? Not only is she going against Scientology, but also her mega rich, super star husband.
IIRC her father is a lawyer who was never keen about Tom.

Granted I am only going on published photos of thesse two, but she has not looked happy in any photos for some time. I doubt he was blind sided. If he was, then that is Karma; pure and simple, considering how Nicole Kidman was blindsided. In this photo, she looks stressed out, unhappy, miserable. I am guessing, she will be more than happy to pass on a big payday just to get out of the marriage and get full custody. I am guessing with her lawyer father, and a good team in place, she has quite a bit of leverage to get the full custody she is seeking. Spill the beans on Tom and Scientology or get full custody. Good luck Katie!

Of course "He had no idea" He is after all a man isn't he? I wouldn't say it was true of all men, but many men just don't pay attention to feelings and behavior changes...they pay attention to important things like sports and boobs lol
