“He was worried about his daughter,” the source adds. The decision to divorce was Katie’s decision, and she left Tom, who is in Iceland filming Oblivion, “totally devastated and heartbroken.”

Only three weeks ago, Tom told People, “You’re blessed to be able to live your dream and have the family that I have, the wife and children that I have.”

But it’s not just Tom that Katie married. “When you’re married to Tom Cruise, he doesn’t come alone. He has people with him all the time. You marry the 10 people who always surround him.”

Sources also claim Tom is “hurt and confused. Ultimately, he knows they respect each other wand will work it out amicably.”

The Mirror is reporting that Katie has fired her publicist of the “Tom years” — Ina Trecoikas — and gone back to her pre-TomKat publicists Leslie Sloane and Nanci Ryder.
