Katie Holmes secretly rented NY home before filing for divorce

Washington: Katie Holmes already had a contingency plan in place to ensure that her 6-year-old daughter, Suri, would be taken care of, when she filed to divorce Tom Cruise Thursday after five years of marriage.

According to sources, the 33-year-old actress rented her own New York City property -- separate from the home the couple shares when they’re in town together -- just prior to filing for divorce, a magazine has reported.

With Cruise, 49, away filming the sci-fi flick ‘Oblivion’ in Iceland, Holmes quietly filed divorce papers with the aid of a New Jersey-based attorney, and requested sole custody of the couple’s daughter.

“Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest. This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” Holmes’ lawyer, Jonathan Wolfe, said in a statement on Friday.
