Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes Divorce

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes Divorcing

Update 2: Tom is saddened by the divorce. A statement from Tom's rep said, "Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy."

Update: Katie has filed for sole custody of Suri when she filed divorce papers yesterday, prompting some to speculate that Tom is surprised by her move.

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are divorcing, People is reporting. The couple have been married for over five years, having tied the knot in a lavish Italian ceremony back in 2006. Her lawyer seemed to confirm the news in a statement. He said, "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."

The split comes just days before Tom's 50th birthday next Tuesday, July 3. They have been apart in recent weeks, with Tom shooting Oblivion in Iceland and Katie spending time in China and NYC. This was Tom's third marriage, and Katie's first.

I have always thought that Katie had been forced into this situation by an abusive ( mentally abusive ) husband.  Get away girl and take your kid. Good luck

The whole experience just seemed so bizarre. I hope this means we will see some resurgence of the 'old' Katie?

contract is up...wonder who's next? I know he wanted Jessica Alba when he was beard shopping but his # 5 choice, Katie, was the only one that agreed...I assume he'll want someone in their early 20's to show us that he's so irresistible to younger women (I can't even type that shyt with a straight face)...Jane Travolta (not a typo) is next....

Not surprised at all. The 5 year contract is up.

Sorry to hear about the pending divorce.  Especially because it will egg on idiots who hound Cruise about his personal life.  But it will likely be good for Katie and the daughter to get away from Scientology.  That is if the agents of Scientology allow them to get away.
