TomKat are no more! Yes, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have called it a day (it’s almost obligatory in Hollywood at this stage) after five years of marriage. Katie, 33, filed for divorce against Tom, 49, citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ and is seeking sole custody of the couple’s 6-year-old daughter, Suri.
The couple haven’t appeared in public together since February, with each star only being spotted out with their daughter. Katie’s lawyer, Jonathan Wolfe, released a statement saying that “this is a private matter for Katie and her family” and said that Katie’s primary concern was her daughter’s welfare.
A spokesperson for Tom Cruise said that he was “deeply saddened” and is concentrating on his three children – as the actor has a son and a daughter from his previous marriage to actress Nicole Kidman.
Back in 2006, Tom infamously declared his love for Katie by jumping up and down on a couch on Oprah’s talkshow and this was quickly followed by the birth of Suri and a lavish Italian wedding.
However, it wasn’t to be and after a mere five years of marriage, the couple have called it quits – becoming another addition to the copious amounts of Hollywood’s failed marriages.
