Katie Holmes Files Emergency Motion To Make Divorce Public!

| Filed under: Tom CruiseLegal MattersKatie Holmes


Katie Holmes is throwing down the gauntlet in her divorce from Tom Cruise.

On Tuesday, the future ex Mrs. Cruise III filed an emergent application with the New York courts to make everything from their divorce proceedings public.

In other words they won't be settling this privately!

The motion now means Tom will have to hire a New York lawyer and fast because the two are scheduled to appear in front of Judge Matthew Cooper on July 17th.

A source with knowledge of the filing said Katie's move is an aggressive one:

"It’s unlikely for a celebrity to file an emergency hearing, because most celebrities settle out of court because they don’t want the media involved in their case. Katie and Tom are now going to have an open court room, which means that anyone can walk in and see what’s happening. Plus, they are putting their case in the hands of a judge who is going to determine what happens next. Most public figures don’t want that — it’s a last resort. It’s super-aggressive for Katie to have taken these steps. It suggests that there’s going to be a contentious divorce battle to come."

We already knew it was going to be a Rock Divorce of Ages, but now that it's public it's going to be epic!

Wonder what kind of juicy Scientology secrets we can expect to be aired out in court???

    What has Tom done? It seems like he finally met a woman that cant be bought, or has some skeleton's.

    tom is FUCKED! all caps.

    tom will be responsible for the demise of the cult of scientology. na-nu na-nu.

  3. 3

    Give it a few hours and watch Kim k and her camp release something to try to top Katie's divorce! You can't try to out do a kardashian! Lolololol

  4. 4

    Now Tom has to decide whether to give Katie Suri, or let his Co$ secrets spill. Good strategy, Katie. Keep safe.

  5. 5

    Katie Rocks! I think Tom was fooled by her. She's stronger than he or anyone else thought, and has played hardball from the word go. But that's what Mama Bears do!

  6. 6

    She must be scared beyond belief. That's the only reasoning I can find behind wanting to make such a messy thing public. Good for her. KICK HIS CRAZY SCI ASS, KATY!

    …looks like she just finished a rodeo…….

    Don't mess with Katie!!!

    damn yeah at first when I read this (if its even true) I was like dayummm thats pretty selfish and calculating of her to want that to be public, think of her daughter, and her family, and even the man she was married to for 5 years, it just seems very selfish and coniving, but then again I suppose theres a reason for it, and I guess its all a legal strategy to get custody of her kid…sad it has to be that way though, but she is going up against someone who has a lot more money than her I guess. sad. Hope it works out the way it is supposed to, whatever that means.

    Brilliant move on her part. I can only imagine that if you live with a control freak and ego-maniac you are going to learn a few tricks of the trade. So far I am impressed with her decisions and careful planning. It's hard to win with the wealthy.

    Great to see that you stole this information from HollywoodLife who had this an hour an 10 mins before you did.. I guess anyone can make a Gossip site do a bit of SEO work and steal all the actual reporting from more viable sources.

  12. la says – reply to this


    Maybe Tom is worse than we thought…
    See, she might have done that because Tom has its ways, he has a lot of money and all we know that money CAN buy a lot of things, like a judge…
    I really think Tom is creepier than we all know…
    Making it public will restrain his power over the case and will avoid dirty moves.
    He probably don't wanna anyone knowing who he really is.
    Kate can tell the world about it.

    Bless her heart….glad she has the courage to take action.

    Good for Katie. I'm sure she's got lots of dirt and Scientology crap on him. You go girl.

  15. msskwesq says – reply to this


    This was a smart move but I am sure her father, a very hardball playing attorney, encouraged her to do. She will win this war with Tom the Cult leader… Good for her.

  16. 16

    Re: msskwesq – Not so sure what a sharp attorney her father is, since she signed a pre-nup awarding her NOTHING!

  17. 17

    Tom is a psychopath/narcissist/control freak who is involved in a sham of a "religion". Go be with your fellow cultists and leave this poor girl alone. She already wasted 5 years of her life on your crazy, repressed gay ass. Scientology = CULT. It isn't a religion - its a money making scam.

  18. yayyay533 says – reply to this


    GO KATIE!!! She has a good head on her shoulder, and I can't wait until she gets her life back away from that dirty guy!!

  19. 19

    She has a child with Tom. A smart woman would keep that in mind and try to split the sheets amicably. No matter what happens they will be forever tied together. It would be best for everyone involved to keep it civil.

  20. secondgues says – reply to this


    Daddy ,the lawyer, has been working on this shite for some time. TA hee

  21. 21

    Re: Chicklette – she's probably doing this FOR her daughter, to have a better chance at full custody so she can be protected.

  22. Becky says – reply to this


    This is gonna be interesting, feel for Suri though but i'm sure Katie will protect her from it as best as she can, it seems she's doing all this for her in the first place. I wonder what has happened, I guess you never know

  23. iCR says – reply to this


    This divorce is gonna be entertaining as fuck

  24. 24

    Damn….I never knew Katie has bigger balls then the Cray Cray Tommie Girl! YOU GO GIRL! She must know some good Scientology crap that hopefully has them running scared. I don't blame her, the cult has been watching her, so she needs to make sure the public sees the crap they are trying to do to get the Xenu Heir Suri back. She was an amazing actress in Pieces of April, and the Tommie Girl made her career go flop. Dang, she is impressive in her fight for her daughter. Advantage Katie!!!!!

  25. 25

    Re: rosebud99
    I agree… very smart move. After keeping secrets for the past 5 years, she must know that if the courtroom is public, the shit's gonna come out. ALL of it.
    But I can't help but think that no matter what way this is decided, Tom's screwed.
    IF he decides to give her what she wants, (Suri) and decides to keep things quiet, the public will know he's afraid of something. HE knows that WE all know the Scientology lawyers are a bunch of wounded sharks; if he and his team of pros cave, he looks suspect.
    AND, if he instead decides to fight in New York and let it all out in court, I'd imagine that - sooner or later - the dramatist/narcissist in Tommy will not be able to keep quiet, and he'll hang himself with another ego-inspired public display of CRAZINESS, as he did in that Video that went Viral a few years ago. He'll get asked something about Scientology, it will strike a nerve, (the brainwashed one) and off he'll go on some lunatic tirade that will give Suri to her mother faster than you can say, "I feel the need, the need for speed."
    Can't wait.

  26. ashley says – reply to this


    Way the go Katie! Don't let Tom and his scientology cult push you around. It's already that way with those creepy guys in SUVs in front of your building. Don't let Suri turn out like Tom's adopted kids who turn there backs on their mother Nicole

  27. 27

    Team Katie - seems like she spent a lot of time thinking all this through before leaving.

  28. Bogiesbabe says – reply to this


    Good for her. With all of this media attention I think that Katie should be offered to play the part of Anastasia Steele in the 50 Shades Of Gray movie..That would kick her career back into gear!!

  29. 29

    tom the psycho

  30. 30

    Her primary concern is custody of Suri. This move to make everything public says several things. First, Katie has nothing to hide but Tom the cult leader does. By forcing him into open court he's gonna have to reveal everything out in the open like the scientology crap. If he's not willing to do it, then he has to settle asap by giving custody of Suri to Katie. Cant wait when Katie's attorneys interrogate Tom's cult ass. That pulls scientology into court. Who is Tom gonna get as his goto guy from the cult? Miscavige??? LMAO.

  31. 31

    My thought is she is doing this to kibosh any BS from Scientology or manipulation by them because if they do, then they will be exposed as she'll air their dirty secrets in open court all to explain why she wants full custody. Pretty smart.

  32. Jan says – reply to this


    We all saw Tom rant about Brooke Shields on TV. He did not even know Brooke and went nuts. I can just imagine the rants the goes on about his own family that does not obey him and the rule of Scientology.

    Not one word of the HollywoodLife story is correct.

    In fact, Holmes’ own attorney, Jonathan Wolfe, is squashing the notion that his client is seeking an “emergency hearing” for custody and child support.

    “Other than her action for divorce, the only pending application filed by Ms. Holmes remains her request for an anonymous caption,” meaning that papers filed in connection with the divorce remain private.

    That’s quite different from HollywoodLife’s contention that Holmes was seeking “an open court room.”

    In more accurate news, since filing for divorce from Cruise last week and asking for sole legal custody, Holmes and daughter Suri have been spotted in New York shopping for groceries and laughing and smiling over ice cream.

    Meanwhile, Cruise spent his 50th birthday on Tuesday surrounded by his older kids Connor and Isabella and a few other family members.

    wow that means u could have a front row seat in court this is great stuff …katie u go girl gal means business ..

  35. 35

    Whether their divorce goes public or not, it's bound to get messy! After what happened to Nicole and her "adopted kids", Katie is not going down without a fight for her only biological daughter. Nope, this time they messed with the wrong girl. What to choose? Give up rights to your daughter or continue to fight and expose all the dirty laundry and the many reasons why your ex-wife thinks she's better off with your daughter? I see a long battle ahead.

    Thank God Katie has brains and some good advisors. I'd like to see Tom lose this one.

    Re: psnoks – Haha, religion is always a scam. Doesn't matter which one it's for fucking idiots. Now this bitch has no reason to complain, she knew what she was getting into. She should just take his money and go, because we all know there's no way she could make it herself.

  38. Sick of your whining says – reply to this


    Re: la
    You only come in here to bitch about something. You never reply to the subject just complain..God go somewhere else and whine and bitch. YOu think this is the World News .Org or something? That because he didnt get this little tid bit first that it is a personal affront to you? BFD get over yourself.

  39. jk says – reply to this


    She has got a good attorney. By keeping it public they can keep an eye on COS and make sure they don't pull crap on Katie like they did Nichole. If they want to play dirty she just made a giant step towards keeping Tom and his fruitcakes in line. I dont think Katie has anything to hide but TC does and she is making sure he understands that Suri comes first and he needs to back off because she will tell everyting she knows and can legally bring in those tapes he made with that so called church, so TC can kiss his ccareer goodbye if all this shit gets out to the public. I think he father is behind this and is working with her lawyer and are protecting her and Suri at all costs. There will security on Katie and Suri at all times because kidnapping is nothing new to COS and making people die is noting new either Katie needs to watfch her back.l

    Hold on tight, this is going to be a very bumpy ride!

    Its also going to be a very enlightening ride!

    Re: Indigogo – Are you calling Suri nothing? Money is not important! Your family is what is important!

    Re: BittersweetJudy – very well said, she has to make this as public as possible given the history of the scifi goons and LIttle Davy is the biggest Goon of all. Take care Katie, and keep yourself and Suri safe.
