Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are divorcing!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After five years of marriage, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce, PEOPLE has learned exclusively.

"This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family," says attorney Jonathan Wolfe. "Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest."

Cruise's rep tells PEOPLE: "Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy."

The Rock of Ages star, 49, wed actress Holmes, 33, in an Italian castle in November 2006. They have daughter Suri, 6.

This was Holmes's first marriage and the third for Cruise, who previously was married to the actresses Nicole Kidman, with whom he has two children, and Mimi Rogers.

mte weird-ass uncomfortably emotional Data in a mediocre movie

This is from the one where the Enterprise separates and the saucer crashes into a planet while Malcom McDowell is trying to catch a ride of a nexus ribbon, right?

That is NOT a mediocre movie.

Lore and Dr Soong are so corny.

How is this positive? If Tom isn't holding her back she might end up bringing down otherwise good projects like Batman Begins again.

But there have CONSTANTLY been split rumors.

I think there were a few blind items that were alluding to this very recently

paparatti 29th-Jun-2012 05:36 pm (UTC)
That's because there would have to be rumours about it being a legitimate, healthy relationship first.
makahakat 29th-Jun-2012 05:59 pm (UTC)
thats because this was a contract, not a marriage
ladyserenity84 29th-Jun-2012 06:52 pm (UTC)
I'm legit shocked as well. :O

Well this is his third divorce.
msloserrific 29th-Jun-2012 06:14 pm (UTC)
Yes. They especially allow it if they consider one of the spouses a suppressive person (just read that Inside Scientology book)

69love_songs 29th-Jun-2012 05:16 pm (UTC)
Lol mte!

On a more serious note tho, i am pleased for her. He scares the shit out of me and something about their marriage has always creeped me out. Altho cannot believe they've only been married for fiveyears!
emofordino 29th-Jun-2012 05:49 pm (UTC)
i'm kind of worried that tom will do the same thing with suri that he did with his kids with nicole, and she won't be able to see katie. lbr katie's the only chance that kid has at a relatively normal life. she might be spoiled, but at least she won't be brainwashed.
fiending 29th-Jun-2012 05:53 pm (UTC)

It has creeped me out since day one, too. I can't put my finger on it.

Yeah, I feel like it's been longer...
highd 29th-Jun-2012 06:12 pm (UTC)
I am not pleased for her because I fear she will lose her daughter. If I were her I would be frightened and worried.

I bet Suri caused it though because she's a posessed demon.

Suri could write something when she's older!
girlygirlk8e 29th-Jun-2012 05:19 pm (UTC)
I wish! She probably is contracted, and he'll probably get Suri too because of how much dirt he may have on her due to those scientology "readings" or whatever.
tuggernuts 29th-Jun-2012 05:27 pm (UTC)
pretty sure her contract won't allow that
leopard_legs 29th-Jun-2012 09:09 pm (UTC)

and she's right :(

WOW. Didn't see that coming. She's free at last!
pink_dog 29th-Jun-2012 05:53 pm (UTC)
YES. I'm happy for her! But I'm praying that her lawyer-daddy reviewed all those contracts very carefully before she signed them, and that she'll get to take Suri with her when she leaves. Nicole essentially lost her children when she and Tom divorced. Of course, they were older and they may have chosen to stay with Tom more, idk.
emofordino 29th-Jun-2012 06:17 pm (UTC)
this was exactly what i was thinking when i first heard about this. hopefully suri and katie are able to get the hell out of there asap.
bent_ley 29th-Jun-2012 06:39 pm (UTC)
i think what happened between nicole and the kids will be A LOT different than what happens with suri. Kate is ALWAYS with suri and i would bet A LOT of money that katie left the house, took suri, and then filed for divorce/temp custody.

i mean, hadnt the older kids been living with tom's crazy sister when tom and nicole split?? i just think there is a different dynamic there.
