Katie Holmes: Marriage Was Over Last Year She also claims they were NYC residents for 2 years By Neal Colgrass, Newser Staff Posted Jul 2, 2012 4:51 PM CDT 5 comments Comments Katie Holmes arrives at the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party hosted by Graydon Carter at Sunset Tower on February 26, 2012 in West Hollywood, California. (Getty Images) (Newser) – Katie Holmes' divorce papers have revealed another little factoid: Her marriage to Tom Cruise was "irretrievably" ruined at least half a year before she filed for divorce, TMZ reports. Sources linked to Tom call her contention "baffling," considering how "blindsided" he was by the divorce. Maybe this photo of them walking hand-in-hand two weeks ago tells the whole story. But wait, that's not all. Katie's divorce documents also claim the couple had been New York residents for "at least 2 years"—an assertion Tom is sure to deny, considering that New York courts will be more inclined to give Katie sole custody of Suri. And the divorce has pushed Katie to fire one staff member who was far too close to Tom.
