“Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy.”
Katie Holmes is seeking sole custody of their six-year-old daughter.
Another day, another celebrity divorce.
According to TMZ, A-list couple Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are parting ways after just five years of marriage.
Jonathan Wolfe, an attorney for Holmes, released a statement saying:
“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.”
This was Holmes’ first marriage and the third for Cruise, who was previously married to Nicole Kidman and Mimi Rodgers.
Cruise and Holmes wed in November 2006 in an Italian castle. They have one child together, Suri (6).
