Oh, she's good!
We've heard that the
secret agent actress had already settled into her new apartment, changed her phone number and hired a new Cruise-free staff by the time the divorce papers were filed!
Obvi, that shiz doesn't happen over night — but it may have taken longer than we previously thought!
"She spent part of every month for the last two years in New York, possibly as a precursor to filing for divorce in that state, where residency is required."
It's clear Katie filed in NYC because, unlike Cali, the state of New York can look into the issues causing a need to file for divorce and use those in judgement.
If she decided to do her paperwork on the East coast over a year ago, AND was able to hide it all from Tom, we are srsly impressed!
Lifetime, are you hearing this??
