How’s this for a sad start to your weekend? People is reporting that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce.
“This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” Holmes’ attorney Jonathan Wolfe told People. “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”
Update: According to TMZ, it was Katie who filed for divorce in New York yesterday, citing irreconcilable differences and seeking sole custody of 6-year-old Suri. The site claims Tom was “blindsided” by the whole thing.
Cruise, 49, and Holmes, 33, have been married for five years. They got engaged in June 2005, following a whirlwind romance, and shortly after that announced that Katie was pregnant. They were married in Italy in November 2006 when daughter Suri was 7 months old. This was Tom’s third marriage and Katie’s first.
We’ll keep you updated as more news becomes available. Part of us is still hoping this is just a publicity stunt to boost Rock of Ages’ box-office numbers and they’ll live happily ever after very soon. Sigh.
