Holmes reportedly seeking sole custody of Suri

Katie Holmes reportedly wants sole legal custody of her six-year-old daughter Suri.

Katie Holmes reportedly wants sole legal custody of her six-year-old daughter Suri.

The actress – who has filed documents to divorce Tom Cruise based on “irreconcilable differences” – has asked for legal custody, primary residential custody and a “suitable amount” of child support from her husband, TMZ.com reports.

In addition she has asked for the division of their property, although there is no mention of their pre-nuptial agreement in the documents.

Tom – who is currently in Iceland filming new action movie ‘Oblivion’ – is believed to have “not seen” the divorce documents, which were filmed anonymously in New York, coming.

The 49-year-old actor – who already has children Connor, 17 and Isabella, 19 from his relationship with Australian beauty Nicole Kidman – recently said he did not want to have any more children because he was happy with his lot.

He said: “I'm so happy with three. I'm enjoying every second with Suri that I have. And I'm enjoying the relationship with my older kids, and the way it is right now."

This will be Tom’s third failed marriage following splits from Nicole and fellow Hollywood star Mimi Rogers.
