Katie Holmes is the one who filed for divorce and Tom Cruise was “blindsided” by Katie’s legal move … TMZ has learned.
We know Katie filed the divorce docs in New York on June 28, citing “irreconcilable differences.” She is asking for sole legal custody and “primary residential custody” of the couple’s 6-year-old daughter, Suri.
We also know Katie is asking for a “suitable amount” of child support.
Katie also asks for a division of property in her divorce docs, although we know there was a significant prenup that is based on California law. Katie makes no mention of the prenup in her filing.
We’re told Tom “did not see this coming.” We’re told there is some “nastiness” here, evidenced by Katie’s move to get sole legal custody.
Katie’s divorce petition was filed anonymously, without names.
Story developing! Holy f-ck! YES! Did I call that blind item OR WHAT?!
Update: Ugh, of course Tom Cruise is already making statements. This is what Tom and his camp had to say:
“Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy.”
Sad or not sad, this guy’s a total fruitbat. Also, of course the statement reads ‘Kate’ instead of ‘Katie’. Ugh, ugh, ugh.
TEAM KATIE! (God, I never thought I’d be able to say that ever.)
Update: To show how floored Tom probably is, “his” last Tweet came through two hours ago, asking followers how he should spend his 50th birthday, which is next week on July 3rd. Best answer I could come up with? ALONE. Mwahahaha.
