Hollywood couple Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce after almost 6 years of marriage.
“This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” Holmes’s attorney Jonathan Wolfe said of the matter. “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”
Cruise’s rep told People: “Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy.”
The divorce papers that Holmes filed cite “irreconcilable differences” and she is reportedly requesting “primary residential custody” of their 6-year-old daughter, Suri.
Cruise, 49, and Holmes, 33, got married in November 2006. This was Holmes’ first marriage and Cruise’s third. Cruise was previously married to actress Nicole Kidman, with whom he has two children, and actress Mimi Rogers.
