Tom Cruise And Katie Holmes Decide To Divorce

According to TMZ reports:

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting DIVORCED … after 5 years of marriage.

Katie’s attorney, Jonathan Wolfe released a statement saying, “This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family.”

Wolfe adds, “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”

It’s unclear if divorce papers have been filed with the court.

Tom and Katie have one child together, Suri, who is 6-years-old.

49-year-old Tom has 2 children from his previous marriage to Nicole Kidman. He was also married to actress Mimi Rogers from 1987 to 1990.

Cruise and 33-year-old Holmes were married in November 2006 in a lavish ceremony held at an Italian castle.

Tom has been spotted in Iceland this week where he’s been shooting a movie called “Oblivion.”

Katie and Suri have been spotted in NYC all week.

Well, damn. Are you more surprised at this divorce or Heidi Klum and Seal?

**UPDATE**

Katie Holmes filed for divorce primarily over Tom Cruise’s fierce ties to Scientology, fearing that Tom would drag Suri deep into the church … sources connected with the couple tell TMZ.

Our sources say … Katie has never been fully committed to Scientology, even though she has had ties with the church. We’re told the couple had been arguing over Suri — that she’s now of the age where Scientology becomes a significant part of her life.

Sources familiar with the split tell us Katie is filing for sole legal custody — as we first reported — specifically because she does not want Tom to control decisions relating to religion.

To give you an idea of how fierce Tom’s ties to the Church are — a video featuring the actor discussing what Scientology means to him leaked onto YouTube in 2008. You gotta watch the whole thing.

If you’ve never seen Tom Cruise’s erie diatribe on Scientology hit the flip to understand why Katie wants to split.
