Tom Cruise Wants To File For Visitation Rights & Sole Custody Of Suri — Report

Thu, July 5, 2012 12:43pm EDT by 31 Comments

Plus, Tom is allegedly trying to move the divorce case to California! Read on for more messy divorce details.

Tom Cruise isn’t going to let this divorce happen without a full-armed fight!

The 50-year-old dad is reportedly planning on filing for visitation rights to see his six-year-old daughter, Suri. And he’s not messing around with this, the new report claim he’s going to plea for rights in person, in court — by the end of the week.

“Tom has told Dennis and Bert Fields, his long-time entertainment lawyer, that his first priority is getting a court order in place, obviously a temporary one, that will allow him to legally see his daughter. Team Cruise has extensive documentation to prove that Los Angeles is where the case should proceed, because this is where he says they have lived,” a source tells Radaronline.com. “Tom is extremely disappointed that Katie filed in New York, and he feels that she is trying to cut him out of their daughter’s life. Tom won’t tolerate it and told his lawyers that if he personally needs to go to court and make a plea in front of the judge for an order allowing him to see his daughter, he will.”

But that’s not all. Tom is reportedly very serious about asking for sole custody of Suri and will do everything he can to put him in the best position for the court to rule in his favor.

“Tom has faith in his lawyers, and the legal system. Tom is also discussing the possibility of pursuing full legal custody of Suri. Tom could make a very strong case because he raised his two adopted children, Bella, and Connor with Nicole Kidman. Tom was their main custodial parent. Tom is just at a loss as to why Katie would go to such extreme measures when she decided to file for divorce. Tom’s lawyer will also request an order that Suri return to Los Angeles as soon as possible, and that she can’t travel out of the state without each parent’s prior approval,” a source tells Radaronline.com.

Yikes! It will be interesting to watch the drama unfold this summer.

Its like you learn my mind! You seem to know a lot approximately this, such as you wrote the book in it or something. I believe that you just can do with some % to force the message house a little bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.

Just watched Rock of all Ages…. Tom character is a wacko but Russell Brand is a legend… So funny with Baldwin…. No sane judge will give Tom custody… Just be glad the divorce isn’t in England as our judges here are a joke!

i cant stand Tom Cruise because he is so controlling, full of himself and into the cult of Scientology. I happy to see Katie stand up for herself and her daughter. Tom thinks he can control everything in his life, he needs to learn that if you sufficate your wife and daughter by telling me what they can do and not do, that he will eventually lose them, and he did. Of course he doesn’t like it because he doesn’t have controll over Katie anymore and he can’t stand that. I am very proud of Katie to put her welfare and her daughter’s welfare above anything else. GO KATIE I hope you get full custody of Suri.

Celebrity or not no one has the right to control your life & tell you what you can or can’t do. Am sure Katie, when caught up in the courtship stage, never suspected that Tom would want to control her life as well as control coming from the church. She should have talked to Nicole before falling into that trap. She will be better off to get out of that relationship & try to get the court to help in keeping Suri from falling into the Scientology religion which seems to be mostly about money instead of God or the Bible. It seems like more of a Cult. People have turned celebrities into Gods rather than entertainers. I don’t even watch Tom Cruise movies. He’s certainly not my idea of a glamourous guy……..no matter how much money he makes.

Don’t forget what Tom did with his other two kids. He banished them to live with his sister. That should play in Katie’s favor.

thank you. at the very least, people should read the wikipedia of this group. many respectable countries don’t recognize this group as a religion, and it would appear the whole thing was set up this way just to avoid taxes.

sole legal custody doesn’t mean he cannot see her. it means he cannot make big decisions (like what religion she will be raised with). it is granted when parents are so at odds that they don’t want to have them running back to court everytime a decision has to be made. they pick a parent who will decide the big things. the other parent is still in the child’s life.

Tom’s priorities: 1. Scientology 2. His career 3. Suri
Does he honestly think he has a chance at getting sole custody?

I believe Cruise mentally abuses his family using questionable scientology techniques. He displays all the characteristics of a control freak. Holmes has displayed no indication of being anything but a fit mother and Suri belongs with her. He should have monitored visitation rights during which no religious doctrine should be allowed.

And Tom should be deprived of the right to school his children in his own faith (a right every other parent in the world enjoys) because…???? How are you qualified to say that one religion should have rights while another shouln’t? You are not.

And where is it written that fittness as a mother trumps fitness as a father? Just because Katie is fit as a mother it doesn’t follow she should be the sole custodial parent.

you’re either completely IGNORANT about Scientology, or you ARE a Scientologist.

I don’t think she is ignorant or scientologist – the child needs both parents in her life. It appears that Katie and family have taken the law into their own hands and have essentially kidnapped Suri. This is so wrong to treat a child like she is a token that only one person deserves. Katie knew who she was marrying and what his religion is – so what is the cash cows problem?

linda, you’re confused. she is not trying to cut tom out of suri’s life forever. she just wants to be the one making the big decisions. (sole legal custody doesn’t mean tom doesn’t get visitiation/sleepovers, whatever.) and until a temporary custody order is in place (which will happen in like a week, right?), it wouldn’t be prudent for her to just hand suri over to tom who could go anywhere in the world with her. if you’ve got kids, i imagine you understand. once a custody order is in place, tom can have time with suri per the terms of that. and, all of this is just hypothetical nonsense anyway. the guy was in iceland shooting a film, and is leaving in like another week to start shooting another one. it’s not like he’s sitting at home pining away for his daughter… he jetted from iceland to his other family in l.a., and heads to the rockies to film any minute now.

EXACTLY! Every child deserves to be with BOTH parents provided they are not being abused or put in danger with said parent. HOWEVER…..Tom Cruise didn’t afford Nicole Kidman that very right when they divorced. He used his fame, fortune and fantasy “religion” to take their two kids away from Nicole. The kids rarely saw her and stopped calling her “Mom” and started calling her “Nicole.” That was due to Tom’s controlling, brain washing spitefulness. The kids loved and adored their mom until the divorce! Katie & family now know how Tom is which is why she was forced to do things the way she did. Otherwise, she would probably have not ever seen Suri ever again. Katie was in her 20’s when she met, got pregnant by & married Tom. She also didn’t know about Scientology. Sure he told her he was a scientologist but I guarantee that she didn’t know what it was all about…until recently…hence her getting the hell out! Scientology is not a religion. It is a cult made up by a defunct science fiction writer who says we all came from aliens. REALLY???? Cash cow? She signed a 120 page pre-nup…sounds like Tom Cruise is the money hog!

Why should he have custodial rights when he will be putting her on a ship and others will make all the disions for her.What a shame at least with her mom she will cared for in the right way open your eyes.

Right! His other two children, whom he brain washed against their mother were raised by and lived with HIS SISTER! He doesn’t want Suri, he just doesn’t want Katie to “win” because he is a major control freak. Good riddance to him!

to avoid conflict when their are major parental differences, the court can decide what parent will be in charge. it adds clarity and avoids fighting at ever turn. in the long run, its aim is to protect the child from the fighting. also, we’re all talking about scientology as if it’s any other religion… look it up. canada doesn’t recognize it as a religion, nor france or germany, nor the uk… presumably it was established as such, HERE, b/c it was a way to avoid taxes. also, what religion do you know of which only lets you participate if you pay money? a good father should have just as much rights as a good mother- but on this point, only one parent should have say, and the court should decide it.
