Tom Cruise films in Iceland after Katie Holmes files for divorce
New York: Tom Cruise was pictured flying over Iceland in a helicopter, en route to a movie shoot, just a day after his wife, Katie Holmes, filed for divorce. He wore a pair of aviator shades as he took off in a private helicopter from Reykjavik, a leading daily has reported.
According to his rep, the 49-year-old actor is in Iceland, filming his new movie, ‘Oblivion.’
It is the first time the ‘Mission : Impossible’ star has been seen in public since Holmes filed to end their five and half-year marriage and seek sole custody of the couple’s 6-year-old daughter, Suri, on Thursday.
Meanwhile, a fight may be brewing over where the divorce takes place. While Holmes filed for divorce in Manhattan — the couple own a townhouse on West 12th Street — and according to Radar Online, Cruise will file for divorce in California, where he is expected to have an easier time getting joint custody of Suri.
“There is absolutely no way that he is going to let Katie have sole custody,” a source told a celebrity-gossip website.
“The lines are being drawn, and this is going shape up to be a very contentious custody battle.”
Holmes, 33, allegedly filed for divorce because she didn’t want her Scientologist hubby’s kooky “religion” or his pals to have any part in Suri’s upbringing or education now that she’s old enough to start school.
Cruise and Holmes got married in a lavish ceremony at an Italian castle on November 28, 2006. This is the third marriage Cruise has seen go down in flames.
His first marriage was to actress Mimi Rogers and second to Nicole Kidman.
