Battle for Suri Cruise’s Soul Is Heating Up!
So, Tom Cruise wants also to divorce – he will file for divorce from Katie Holmes in California. Tom was ‘deeply saddened’ by his wife’s decision to end their five year marriage on Thursday (June, 28) when Katie Holmes filed official papers in New York but he will now hit back and ask for the proceedings to continue in Los Angeles as that is where the couple are normally based. Tom will also ask for joint custody of the couple’s six-year-old daughter Suri, despite Katie requesting she had sole custody of the little girl.
Pulling Suri out of Scientology is said to be the main reason behind Tom Cruise – Katie Holmes divorce.
A source told RadarOnline:
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. 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.”
Katie is thought to have filed the papers in New York because she had a better chance of gaining sole custody of Suri. But Tom will claim Katie has no legal right to want the proceedings to happen in New York.
The source added:
Tom’s lawyers will state in their response to Katie’s divorce petition in New York that she didn’t reside continuously in New York for a year, as the law states. Yes, they do have a home in New York, but Tom will argue that Los Angeles is where they live, period.”
According to New York legal sources, Cruise’s religious beliefs will be central in the divorce battle. Katie wants to escape the Church of Scientology with Suri in order to protect her daughter.
The source says:
Suri is at an age where she will be becoming more and more involved with the church and Katie clearly wants to make the break before her daughter is dragged into Scientology.”
In fact, Suri is understood to have been enrolled in Scientology-based school programmes by her father, which is said to ‘terrify’ Holmes. Cruise’s desire to immerse his daughter in Scientology is believed to have brought about a culture clash of religions with Katie, who was raised a devout Roman Catholic. Indeed, such is the actress’s concern over a backlash from the sect that she is convinced rogue elements from the church have been monitoring her movements.
On Tuesday, a worried Katie called police to the New York apartment where she is living with Suri after spotting two mysterious men in a black Mercedes SUV parked outside the door. Katie was convinced they were not members of the paparazzi who sell footage of her and her daughter to American celebrity websites, but Scientology operatives as they didn’t have cameras.
I’m Team Katie! Good for her! Protecting her little girl is her main priority which it should be. And there’s nothing about money as some can claim – I’m sure she’s earned millions from her own career.
