Last week, news broke that Katie Holmes is divorcing Tom Cruise. Many have expected this, many are surprised they’ve even lasted this long. But apparently, nobody is as surprised as Tommy boy himself. Reports have stated that he was absolutely “blindsided” by Holmes‘ actions.
In a rather aggressive move, Holmes is seeking full legal custody and primary residential custody of 6-year-old Suri. She has also decided to file divorce papers in New York in the hopes that they will favour her case. We know there was a prenup signed before the marriage and it seems as though Holmes will not be getting much, if anything, from Cruise. But she’s doing just for fine for herself and will definitely not be living in squalor. Plus, the issue of child support as yet to be discussed…
Holmes’ attorney has released the following statement about the matter:
“This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family. Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”
Unfortunately for the Holmes-Cruise family, this will be a hot topic of discussion for the months to come. This divorce could get messy but there has always been speculation that the marriage was more of a mutually beneficial agreement than a tale of love. Remember the somewhat sudden emergence of TomKat? Remember Katie Holmes publicly serenading Tom? And of course, everybody’s favourite moment..Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah’s couch to declare his love for Katie.
Some common rumours about their relationship are that it was to boost Cruise‘s image and Holmes‘ career. Some speculated that Katie was never pregnant and Suri was carried by a surrogate. And of course, was Katie Holmes brainwashed into joining the Church of Scientology? Hmmm, all rumours of course, but rumours have to come from somewhere right?
