Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce after five years of marriage.
According to TMZ, Katie Holmes. 33-years old filed for divorce Friday, citing “irreconcilable differences.” She is asking for sole legal custody and primary residential custody of 6-year old Suri, the couples child, as well as a “suitable amount” of child support.

“This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family. Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest,” says Holmes’s attorney Jonathan Wolfe.
Meanwhile, Tom Cruise’s Los Angeles-based attorney Bert Fields said, “Katie filed for divorce yesterday. Tom is very saddened by that, and right now he is concentrating on the kids. Please allow them their privacy to work this out.”
Tom Cruise had no idea this was going to blind-side him. Last month in an interview with People he was claiming how special their relationship was. He said, “She is an extraordinary person, and if you spent five minutes with her, you’d see it. Everything she does, she does with this beautiful creativity. She has a voice and warmth as an artist, as a mother. She’s funny and charming, and when she walks into the room, I just feel better. I’m a romantic. I like doing things like creating romantic dinners, and she enjoys that. I don’t know what to say, I’m just happy, and I have been since the moment I met her. What we have is very special.”
