When Katie Holmes decided to divorce Tom Cruise, LA Times says she used a disposable cell phone(s) provided by a friend to secretly contact lawyers. Us Weekly also says she confided in Nicole Kidman while she "secretly plotted to end her marriage". So no effort given to save the marriage at all. People says that her secretive exit strategy included moving into a new apartment in Manhattan. The magazine also said this:
The still-stunned (Cruise) “was a happy man and thought he had a happy life,” says another source. “He keeps asking, ‘What’s happening?’ ”
Poor ol dude didn't know what him him until it did. So he couldn't see this coming. Or could he?
