Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise reportedly have called it quits after six years of their marriage. The spotlight pair, who got married in November 2006 in a prolific Italian ceremony, have a six year old daughter named Suri.

“This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” Holmes’ legal representative Jonathan Wolfe told People magazine. “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”

According to TMZ, Holmes initiated the divorce filing, mentioning “irreconcilable differences,” and is now reportedly anticipating sole legal custody and “primary residential custody” of Suri as stated in her divorce papers.


Cruise’s representative issued an announcement Friday afternoon via Gossip Cop: “Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy.”

Tom Cruise was, in the past, married to actress Mimi Rogers and then actress Nicole Kidman. Tom and Katie begin dating in 2005 and always publicly pictured their bonding. Tom proposed to Holmes on the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Their sources convey that Cruise, who is filming for his movie Oblivion in Iceland, actually is very sad as he did not anticipate the divorce. The couple married in an Italian castle in November 2006, while they embarked on dating in 2005.

According to their pre-nuptial agreement, Holmes is entitled to obtain $15 million as well as their $35-million Beverly Hills Mansion. Tom Cruise has an estate worth more $275 million.

Sources add, Katie is asking for a ‘suitable amount’ of child support, along with a division of property. Since, the couple resided in Beverly Hills, California law shall apply to the separation of assets. As, California is a community property state; a couple’s assets need to be split equally in divorce.
