The Battle For Suri BEGINS! Tom Cruise Wants Divorce Proceedings Against Katie Holmes In California!

| Filed under: Tom CruiseLegal MattersKatie HolmesSuri Cruise


So much for this split not becoming 'contentious!'

Katie Holmes made the very deliberate decision to file for divorce from her husband, Tom Cruise, in New York, as she's seeking sole custody of daughter Suri and the law there allows the judge to consider causes for a marriage coming to an end, like disagreements on how to raise a child, which we all know is a factor in this split!

However, don't expect Tommy to lie down without a fight, as sources close to the actor are revealing that he's planning on doing everything he can to ensure the legal proceedings are in California, a no-fault state!

The insider reveals:

"[Tom] will file a response in New York, asking that the divorce proceedings be halted in the Big Apple because California is the proper venue for the matter to proceed. Team Cruise is going to assert that Katie doesn't meet the residency requirements to file in New York, and that both live full time in California, specifically Los Angeles. At the same time, Tom will file for divorce in California, and will request joint custody of Suri. There is absolutely no way that he is going let Katie have sole custody. The lines are being drawn, and this is going shape up to be a very contentious custody battle. [His lawyers] will state in their response to Katie's divorce petition in New York that she didn't reside continuously in New York for a year, as the law states. Yes, they do have a home in New York, but Tom will argue that Los Angeles is where they live, period."


It will be VERY inneresting to see if his claims here have any merit, and if the judge in New York will allow the proceedings to continue across the country!

We have a feeling this is going to be one SERIOUSLY complex divorce, and just hope that both Tom and Katy can keep little Suri's best interest at heart here while they continue working this whole mess out!

What do U think?? Should Katie get to file in New York?

    Tommy? Tommy? I come here just to hate on you perez. You make it so easy

    Scientologist connected CA attorneys must be avoided. If she wants to distance herself and her child from the cult, she must hold her ground and not step back into the CA trap. Hope her lawyer father checked out her NY residency stuff before she filed.

    Re: Shelah – He really does, doesn't he? I come here for the same reason you do, and always laugh at the very few supporters he has who throw around the very tired "hater" label. Those morons crack me up every time. Sticks and stones, retards …
    I read this hours ago on a better site. You need to speed up copying and pasting if you're going to make it look as though you're actually doing some work on this story. The delays only serve to make it obvious who you're stealing from.

    I can't believe they're getting a divorce!

    tom is getting what he gave to nicole kidman! What a dumbass Now katie can move on to a real guy

  6. 6

    Either Katie meets the NY residency requirements, or she doesn't. It shouldn't be too hard to figure out. For Suri's sake, I hope Katie wins.

  7. 7

    What is everyone against Tom it's his daughter to they both should have her.

    Re: Britney1113 – because in the religion of scientology once someone leaves, the people that stayed in the religion cannot have any contact with them. So Katie would not be able to contact her daughter Suri

  9. 9

    Re: Britney1113 – Look at what happened with Nicole Kidman. Her contact with her children from the marriage with Cruise is zero.

    I beg you to please stop with the "inneresting", it makes you sound like an illiterate.

    I really think Katie's attempt to get SOLE custody is unfair and cruel to BOTH Tom Cruise and Suri especially. A break up at that age is very difficult on children. I mean unless Katie can prove Tom NEVER saw Suri except on weekends during the marriage (which I sincerely doubt) it will be very emotionally hard on Suri to be taken away from her Daddy. Katie DID NOT live in New York. We all know that. To try to file there is manipulative on her part. Wake up people. To hate Tom Cruise just because he is a Scientologist is contrary to the Freedom of Religion in our country's constitution! I don't know much about Scientology and neither do most of you complaining about it so either learn the TRUTH or shut up already. I mean it can't be ALL bad if it's got Kirstie Alley!

    Tom is a nut job, this man is evil. I hope Katie is safe, I don't trust this man. I hope she comes forward and tells all the shit that goes on with this cult. Maybe Nicole will come out and tell also

    Team Katie

    tom and his butt buddy Revolta should just come OUT already, have stupidology marry them and be done with it.

    Re: VicktheChick33 – Don't be so naive. Scientology is not a religion, it is a cult.

    It sure would be nice to see the catholic church somehow step in and bring the smackdown on the Scientologist cult. For every harebrained scheme Cruise/Scientology comes up with, the Catholic church should counter it and counter it hard. Suri is at risk to those Scientology kooks and if Katie is catholic it would be fun to see them get involved on her behalf and show Scientology how real clout works. They need some good PR with all the molestation drama and this could help. I know it's just blowing smoke but it is fun to think of. It would make a good film as well. Kind of like the "Da Vinci Code" but better and NOT starring Tom (or Katie)

  16. 16

    I don't believe Katie would maliciously file for sole custody. She's probably looking out for Suri's well being and who knows what she knows. I'm not going to question her motives but if she feels that way, then more power to her.

  17. 17

    I've always thought that Suri was Chris Klein's…now I hope she is. If Suri isn't Tom's then Katie can just push for a paternity test…oh wouldn't that be a trump card? I'm applauding her for getting away from him in spite of how ugly this could get…she's clearly been miserable for years, maybe now she can get back to the Katie we all remember!

  18. 18

    I can understand why she would want sole custody of Suri, scientology is a very unusual religion and clearly takes over your life. I wouldnt want that for my own daughter, she obviously fears Suri will be sucked in as well. Event though its unfair to not share custody and would be horrible for Tom i understand why she would do that. I think he is odd.

  19. 19

    shes always in NY she should def be allowed.. hope she send the $$ on a good lawyer

  20. Sarah says – reply to this


    Home state rule is a federal law in custody matters. Home state is established after a child has been in any area for 6 months straight.

  21. 21

    she should but i doubt she will be she should get alot of things but i be surprised if she gets any of them

    sole custody would be more a fantasy i would say …

    if she just moved there that should make he a residant …

    whats weird is suri is still at her dads she didnt take suri with her …

    Re: VicktheChick33 – I know this will be a bit hard to wrap your small mind around, but there are people here, including myself, that has in fact done some research to know at least a little bit of what Scientology is all about. Why don't you go and do the same before making stupid comments.
