Now that the initial shock of the divorce betweenand has sunk in, people are trying to figure out what went wrong.
When Tom Cruise got married for the third time, people thought it was going to last, but sadly, that is not what has happened. Recently, it was discovered that Holmes had filed for divorce from Cruise, sending shock waves through the world of entertainment. As Cruise and Holmes seemed so much in love initially, the divorce really came as a surprise to most people.
Now people want to find out the reason behind this divorce and it turns out that there were many reasons that prompted Holmes to file for divorce. Apparently, Katie Holmes was living with Cruise's mother, sister, Cass, and two children from his previous wife,, and she felt "suffocated." Even though the entire family lived in a huge Los Angeles mansion, the starlet felt the family's presence was quite overbearing. The presence of Cruise's family was also the reason for many of the fights between him and Holmes.
Another major reason is that she did not want her daughter to follow Scientology, while Cruise, being an ardent follower of this religion, would have had it no other way. This seems to be the major reason for Holmes to flee not only from Cruise's house, but also his life, along with daughter Suri.
Suri has just turned six and that is the age when children start learning about Scientology. Katie Holmes is a Catholic and she was terrified of Tom Cruise's religion and what it made out of people. She had witnessed herself that Kidman's children did not even miss their mother and part of the reason was their learning from this religion.
Katie Holmes has hired two of the best divorce lawyers for the case and she is looking for the sole custody of Suri. However, it has been learnt that Tom Cruise has decided to retaliate by not letting Holmes have the sole custody of their daughter. Holmes filed for the divorce in New York instead of Los Angeles, but Cruise will appeal for the case to take place in Los Angeles. The divorce between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes can actually turn quite messy.
