Whoa… did not see this one coming at all.
TMZ is reporting that Tom Cruise andare divorcing after five years of marriage and crazier still, Katie is the one that filed the papers!
Katie’s rep released a statement saying, “This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family. Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”
Katie has also filed for sole custody of their daughter, Suri and Tom was apparently “blindsided” by the news. More of the crazy info after the jump!
TMZ gives a bit more detail:
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.
Apparently Tom is “very sad” about the news and considering Katie was sole custody of Suri, they claim there is some “nastiness” going on as well.
Our best to everyone involved, but wowza; did I mention I did not see this coming? I’m guessing Scientology ain’t for everyone.
