Reports are saying Katie Holmes was the one who filed for divorce and is petitioning for sole legal custody of Suri and that Tom Cruise was blindsided by the June 28 filing. In addition to sole custody, she wants primary residential custody.
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 is “very sad” and “did not see this coming.” We’re also told there is some “nastiness” here, evidenced by Katie’s move to get sole legal custody.
So now it looks like a few months of legal maneuvering and planted stories that subtly say how one or the other was the better parent. Though Katie could probably make a stronger case because she’s in practically every picture there is of Suri and it’s not like she has a lot of work to do.
