Well the fairy tale has a sad ending after all….
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce, PEOPLE 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, 49 and Holmes, 33, were married five years ago, in November 2006.
Their daughter Suri is now 6.
It makes you wonder, were the tabloids right about Cruise and his ways? Was Holmes really unhappy like the magazines claimed?
Gossip Cop reports that Cruise’s rep said the actor is “deeply saddened”.
“Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy,” the rep stated.
Holmes filed for divorce in New York on Thursday, citing “irreconcilable differences”. In her petition, Holmes is seeking sole legal custody of Suri as well as primary residential custody.
TMZ is reporting that Holmes filed for divorce primarily over Cruise’s ties to Scientology; she feared that he would drag Suri into Scientology. The couple have reportedly been arguing over Suri’s involvement in Scientology; she is now at an age where it would become a significant part of her life.
