Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce after five years of marriage.
“This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” says Holmes’s attorney Jonathan Wolfe to People. “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”
Cruise’s rep on the other hand, said: ”Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy.”
The couple, who have been together since 2005, were very public with their relationship. Having been married since November 2006, Cruise and Holmes are also parents to six-year-old Suri.
This was Holmes’ first marriage and the third for Cruise, who was previously married to Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman, with whom he has two children.
I hate to see any couple break up. But in Hollywood unfortunately, the result seems to be inevitable.
