The Mission: Impossible star and Holmes announced yesterday (June 29) that they were splitting after five years of marriage.
Holmes filed divorce papers in New York, where it will apparently be easier to secure sole custody of the couple's daughter Suri Cruise.
Sources tell TMZ that Cruise is attempting to move divorce proceedings to California to avoid astronomical New York tax rates.
However, he deeded a Manhattan apartment to Holmes last August, which the Dawson's Creek actress is using to establish residency in New York.
Cruise has been married twice before, first to actress Mimi Rogers between 1987 and 1990 and then to Nicole Kidman from 1990 and 2001.
It has been reported that Cruise was "blindsided" by his latest divorce, following his recent comments while promoting Rock of Ages that his familly are his "inspiration" and "greatest achievement".
