Katie Holmes filed for a divorce from Tom Cruise in New York City late last week. The divorce comes as surprise to everyone, especially Tom Cruise.
After six years together, it looks like the Holmes-Cruise relationship is over. Holmes cited "irreconcilable differences" on her divorce papers which is fancy talk for, "I married a crazy man."
According to sources close to the matter, Katie Holmes was worried about Tom Cruise's involvement with the Church of Scientology and what this would mean for the couple's 6-year-old-daughter, Suri.
Holmes filed for sole custody of Suri, but Cruise is expected to counter this when he files for divorce in California. Since the two are not official residents of New York City, Tom hopes to have a strong case in California.
This is Tom's third divorce. He was also married to Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman. Strangely enough, all three women were 33 when the marriages ended. The papers have been filed, but the divorce isn't necessarily a sure thing — well, at least in Tom's eyes. According to its website, the Church of Scientology does not recognize the concept of divorce.
