How did Katie Holmes keep Tom Cruise from knowing she was about to divorce him? She used a disposable cell phone, given to her by a friend, a source familiar with the divorce tells the Los Angeles Times.

By keeping it under wraps she was allowed to hire three law firms in three different states, making for a speedy settlement.

According to the Los Angeles Times, there's a chance that had she not used the pre-paid phone, Cruise and his staff might have caught wind that she was looking to divorce him and thrown a monkey wrench into the proceedings.
