Katie Holmes Gets Divorce Help from Dad
Actress Katie Holmes isn't alone -- she's got her family by her side. Katie's dad, Martin, a Toledo, Ohio-based attorney, recently flew to New York to help his daughter file for divorce from Tom Cruise, People reports in a new cover story.
Of course, the ultimate choice to split from the megastar was Katie's. "She's a strong person and makes up her own mind," a source told the magazine, adding that “she's unwavering” in her decision.
Katie and Suri, 6, moved out of the couple's New York digs last week and into a pad of their own in Chelsea. The 33-year-old has already filed for primary residency custody and sole legal custody of Suri, says TMZ, however, Tom will likely seek joint custody, according to several reports.
The split has been hard for Tom, who is in Iceland filming “Oblivion.” "He had no idea this was coming," an insider told People. "He's totally devastated and heartbroken."
