It's thought a friend gave the actress a non-traceable pay-as-you-go phone to enable her to contact lawyers behind Tom Cruise's back.

And not just that, it was like a military operation as the brunette hired three separate law firms in three different states before deciding to file for divorce in New York a move that is believed to have left her estranged husband, 'blindsided'.

It's also claimed that during her divorce plotting, Katie was given moral support from Tom's ex wife Nicole Kidman.

US magazine report Nicole was very supportive and told the former Dawson's Creek star to 'hang on in there'.

The publication claims the women spoke during the early stage of Katie's marriage to Tom when the Australian star phoned to speak to her adopted children Connor and Isabella, and then the pair got close again more recently.

Last weekend a settlement was agreed in New York stating Katie would have primary custody of her daughter, Suri.

Tom will have 'significant' time with his six-year-old daughter although it's thought the couple will be warring over what part the Top Gun star's religion, Scientology will play in Suri's upbringing.
