Before actress Katie Holmes filed for divorce from Tom Cruise, she already had a secret escape plan.
Holmes rented a New York flat, separate from the home she shares with Cruise when they’re in the city, Us Weekly reported Saturday.
The dark-haired beauty made the clandestine arrangements while Mr. Top Gun was 2,600 miles away in Iceland working on the sci-fi flick “Oblivion.” She quietly filed for divorce in New York on Thursday and is seeking sole custody of their 6-year-old daughter, Suri.
The split is reportedly rooted in his fierce loyalty to Scientology and its potential future impact on Suri.
The actor looked calm in a pair of aviator shades when spotted taking off in a private helicopter on Saturday from an Iceland airport. The heartbroken hubby was reportedly heading back to the movie set.
While he’s getting the cold shoulder in Iceland, Cruise might be planning his next move. RadarOnline reported late Saturday that he will file for divorce in California, which experts say will give him a better shot of at least partial custody of Suri.
