One of Hollywood’s most talked-about couples has come to an end.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce after five years of marriage, Cruise’s attorney tells CNN.
“Katie has filed for divorce,” Cruise’s attorney says in a statement. “Tom is very sad about it and is concentrating on the kids.”
An attorney for Holmes added in a separate statement, “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.”
Just last month, Cruise, 49, was gushing about his 33-year-old wife in an interview with Playboy.
“I’m a romantic,” the “Rock of Ages” actor said. “I like doing things like creating romantic dinners, and she enjoys that. … I’m just happy, and I have been since the moment I met her. What we have is very special.”
This was Holmes’ first marriage and No. 3 for Cruise. The actor was wed for 10 years to actress Nicole Kidman, with whom he has two children, and before that had said “I do” to actress Mimi Rogers.
