After five years of marriage, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce, WHO Magazine has learned exclusively.
"This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family," says Holmes's attorney Jonathan Wolfe. "Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest."
Cruise's rep tells WHO Magazine: "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.
In papers filed on Thursday in New York, the actress, 33, is seeking "primary residential custody" of their 6-year-old daughter, Suri, according to TMZ.
Holmes cites the standard "irreconcilable differences" for the end of their five-year marriage and wants a "suitable amount" of child support from the 49-year-old star, TMZ reports.
"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," Cruise said during a June interview with Playboy.
Back in the August 2005 issue of W, Holmes, then 26, gushed to the mag, "I've found the man of my dreams. From the moment I met him it just felt like I'd known him forever. I was blown away. He's the most incredible man. He's so generous and kind, and he helps so many people, and, um, he makes me laugh like I've never laughed, and he's a great friend."
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.
