Katie Holmes has decided to end her marriage with Tom Cruise over Scientology!
Katie filed for divorce in New York on June 28, citing “irreconcilable differences”. She wants sole custudy of Suri Cruise, 6, primarily because she doesn’t want Tom controlling any decisions relating to religion and “primary residential custody”.
Katie has never really fully adopted the Scientology lifestyle, and the primary reason for the filing was over Tom Cruise’s involvement with the Scientology church, and more importantly that Tom would drag Suri into the church.
We also know Katie is asking for a “suitable amount” of child support .. this according to the divorce docs.
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.” He was spotted wearing his wedding ring just this week while filming in Iceland. Interestingly, Katie also wore her ring this week.
We’re also told there is some “nastiness” here, evidenced by Katie’s move to get sole legal custody.
Tom’s rep has released a statement saying, “Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy to work this out.”
Katie’s divorce petition was filed anonymously, without names.
The couple was last seen together was during the Oscars.
