Tom Cruise is not one to go down without a fight. Sources say that he is planning out his own divorce filing, despite his wife, Katie Holmes, doing so a week ago.
One of the actor’s divorce lawyers, Bert Fields, confirmed that the 50-year-old “Rock of Ages” star has made plans to file for divorce, but for the moment, has opted to let Holmes take the forefront in the media before making any moves with a counter divorce.
“Tactically we can’t say where Tom will file a divorce case and if he’ll be seeking joint custody of Suri,” said Fields. “We are letting ‘the other side’ play the media until they wear everyone out and then we’ll have something to say.”
Seeing as how both Cruise and Holmes are very private people, it is not likely that the media will get too much out of either.
Homes filed for divorce on June 28 in New York and is seeking sole custody of 6-year-old Suri. Sources say Holmes is in fear that Cruise’s fellow Scientologists will abduct her.
Many speculate Cruise will file a counter divorce in California, seeking joint custody, but the actor’s representatives have yet to confirm.
Meanwhile, the former “Dawson’s Creek” starlet has moved to a downtown Manhattan apartment with Suri.
