Katie Holmes officially moved her belongings out of the $30 million Beverly Hills home she once shared with Tom Cruise.

A moving and storage truck was photographed outside the seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom house by X-17online on Wednesday afternoon. The movers were reportedly taking her belongings and moving them to an undisclosed storage unit.

Tom will keep the mansion, which features a movie theater, tennis court and swimming pool, while Katie will get their Montecito, Calif. home.

It's the latest sign that the former Dawson's Creek actress is moving on with her life following her shock split from the Hollywood superstar.

Holmes lodged the legal papers in June, citing 'irreconcilable differences' for the split and requesting  sole legal custody and "primary residential custody" of Suri - the couple's six-year-old daughter, Suri.

They released a joint statement last month, saying: 'We are committed to working together as parents to accomplish what is in our daughter Suri's best interests.

'We want to keep matters affecting our family private and express our respect for each other's commitment to each of our respective beliefs and support each other's roles as parents.'

Katie and Suri have now moved into a new apartment in Chelsea, New York.

The plush Seventh Avenue building has a fitness center, valet services, an on-site Whole Foods and a concierge service.

There is also a child's play room, so Suri is bound to find new friends there to play with.

Other celebrities that live in the building include designer Marc Jacobs, singer Lance Bass and N Sync singer Lance Bass.

The "Top Gun" star's ex-wife Mimi Rogers recently spoke out about her ex and Katie Holmes' marriage breakdown.

She told New York Post's Page Six: 'I think itís hard for anybody, and I hope they are both doing well. I really do. You know (we don't see each other often), not really. Itís always been great if we do run into each other.'
