On Friday news broke that Katie Holmes filed for divorce from Tom Cruise in New York but that actor hasn’t been home twiddling his thumbs. The Mission Impossible actor has plans to also file for divorce in California.
A source tells Radar Online that 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.”
While there are claims that Katie is gearing up to fight for sole custody of their daughter Suri, the source says there is no way thats happening. They claim:
“At the same time, Tom will file for divorce in California, and will most 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.”
On the NYC vs. LA filing the insider says:
Yes, they do have a home in New York, but Tom will argue that Los Angeles is where they live, period.”
In other Tom and Katie news, it’s apparent that anyone close to the couple may have known something wasn’t right because the two were sleeping apart for weeks!
“According to our sources, Tom was in town for a few days around June 10 to film a movie. We’re told Tom did not stay in the apartment the couple has in NYC … but rather at The Greenwich Hotel … and never once stepped in or near the apartment.
Our sources say Katie, meanwhile, was going back and forth between the apartment she and Tom shared, and a new apartment she recently got. The two were both photographed during their time in NYC (see above) but never together.”
Reports claim the 32 year old actress has hired top lawyers and from the sound of things Tom has quite the team behind him as well but hopefully this can all go down quick and painless.
