Katie Holmes Divorce Papers Say Marriage to Tom Cruise Over in 2011

by at . Comments

Katie Holmes claims that her marriage to Tom Cruise was "irretrievably" broken at least six months ago ... something that is probably news to Tom, who was reportedly "blindsided" when she filed the paperwork in New York last week.

The Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce is shaping up to be contentious, especially since he didn't see it coming, the two were reportedly walking hand-in hand in Iceland, where he's filming his new movie, just two weeks ago.

It's unclear why she considers things effectively over by late 2011.

All accounts to date suggest that Holmes is attempting to free her daughter from the influence she fears Tom's religion, Scientology, will have on her life.

Clearly, they see things differently. Katie claims in her divorce documents that both she and Tom have been residents of New York for "at least 2 years."

The couple does own an apartment there that is deeded in her name, but Katie has been living in a separate place in NYC in recent weeks with Suri Cruise.

Katie, 33, who filed in NYC, must establish legal residency in the Empire State in order for the court to have jurisdiction over the case, specifically custody.

New York courts are more likely to grant sole custody to one parent over another if there is conflict, which no doubt played into her decision to file there.

Tom, 49, who has shared a home with Katie in L.A. ever since they got married in 2006, will no doubt fight the residency claim and the custody claim.

Expect this one to drag on for months, if not years.

I'm so sick of these two. Katie, you knew he was a Scientologist when you shacked up and got preggers. Tom, you're a short man, need I say more? I just feel sorry for the kid, who appears to be yet another victim of a worthless Hollywood marriage. Why did they think it would be any different? Please, let's move on.

Tom Cruise has always made my skin crawl. What in the flipping' sh*t burgers do women or men or anyone see in him?!?! Let me read him: Tom Cruise is a controlling little twit, probably obsesses about his nails and his own ass, probably nags constantly, probably has a glass of patron and becomes an even bigger egotistical diva b*tch. CANT YOU PEOPLE SEE THIS?!?!

Hmmmm. Very odd that she would say the marriage was over at the end of 2011. I've been married and divorced twice. I have a sneaky suspicion that a lover will appear and there will be photos somewhere around January, February 2012. She'll have to then say, "But the marriage was already over by then." In otherwords, no one I've ever known puts a date on when the marriage was officially over unless they were hiding something. There may be more to this fallout then meets the eye. Example: When I was in 2nd grade, a student said to the teacher, "But I wasn't eating raisins...". The teacher said, "I never said what you were eating. Now I know you were eating raisins". Same thing here, I think. As for Tom, I do not think he was blindsided. He had to know something was amiss. If your woman isn't happy, it's obvious.
Here's what's sad though....They are both actors. Who knows what face they were putting on for each other. I feel sorry for all 3 of them.
