Hollywood couple Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are calling it quits after five years of marriage according to media reports on Friday.
TMZ reported, Holmes is the one who filed for divorce in New York on June 28, citing “irreconcilable differences.” She’s asking for sole legal custody and “primary residential custody” of Suri. Tom is apparently “blindsided” by the news.
“Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children,” Cruise’s representative told The Associated Press. “Please allow them their privacy to work this out.”
Holmes’ attorney, Jonathan Wolfe, made a similar plea Friday: “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.”
Cruise, 49, and Holmes, 33, were married on November 2006 in Italy. They have a daughter, Suri age 6 and adopted two children, Isabella Jane and Bella. Cruise has two children with his previous wife, Nicole Kidman. The actor was also previously married to Mimi Rogers. This was Holmes’ first marriage.
