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.

KHC has no chance - I don't care who she hires.

CRUISE IS WEIRD AND QUIRKY, BUT WORSE HE IS AN IDIOT. LET US ALL HOPE, FOR SURI AND KATIE THAT HE FEARS SO MANY TRUTHS COMING OUT THAT HE WILL JUST DO THE RIGHT THING FOR HIS CHILD. DOUBT IT, BUT WE CAN HOPE.

Seems as though on the surface, she was trying to go through the normal routines with Tom (visiting with him, letting him hold her hand, etc.) so that she could quietly plan her escape without tipping him or the paps off. Had he, his Scientology collaborators or the press known in advance what she needed to do to slip away from him, she might not have been able to do so as cleanly as she did. Well done Katie!

WE ALL KNOW TOM IS NUTS. KATIE MUST BE VERY FEARFUL FOR HERSELF AND HER CHILD. ALWAYS THOUGHT IT VERY STRANGE THAT KATIE WAS ALWAYS CLUTCHING AND CARRYING A CHILD WAY TO BIG FOR THAT. SHE WAS AFRAID OF SURI BEING TAKEN BY SCIENTOLOGISTS. MORE SCARED NOW THAT WILL HAPPEN.

Look at her body language. She didnt want to hold his hand. Her hand is twisted and it looks very uncomfortable. If I had to take a guess Tom was just trying to keep up appearances and she was just biding her time...

Wow ...    

She had to pretend everything was ok, in order to make her 'escape'.

I'm rooting for you Katie. So far, so good girl. Stay strong. Controlling men in general are tough to deal with, let alone an entire organization such as Scientology. As others have posted, you have the support of thousands, probably more.
