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 “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

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