Tom Cruise to file divorce papers in California?

By
Tom Cruise will reportedly take further steps to ensure he secures custody of daughter Suri in the aftermath of his pending divorce from Katie Holmes.

Holmes filed divorce documents yesterday (June 29) in New York, where state laws will allegedly give her a better chance of gaining sole custody of the couple's 6-year-old child.

However, a source close to the couple tells Radar Online that Cruise is gearing up to file a response asking that the divorce proceedings in New York be halted.

"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," the source explains.

The source adds that the Mission: Impossible star then has plans to file for divorce in California, where he "will most likely 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 to shape up to be a very contentious custody battle."

This is Cruise's third divorce. He was previously married to Mimi Rogers, and later Australian actress Nicole Kidman.
