UPDATE: Katie was the one who filed for the divorce, according to TMZ. In the divorce documents, filed on June 28, she cited "irreconcilable differences" and is seeking sole legal custody and "primary residential custody" of Suri. Tom was "blind-sided" and definitely wasn't expecting this.
-- Tom's rep released a statement, saying, "Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddenedand is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them theirprivacy to work this out."
-- Sources tell TMZ that Katie is seeking sole custody due to Tom's Scientology religion. Since Suri is at the age where the beliefs could play a significant role in her life, Kate is seeking custody "specifically because she does not want Tom to control decisions relating to religion."
