Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes to Divorce

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are calling it quits.

In a somewhat stunning announcement, Cruise’s lawyer acknowledged to reporters on Friday that Holmes had filed for divorce from his client one day earlier. The pair originally wed back in November 2006 – six months after the birth of their daughter, Suri.  

"Tom is very sad about it and is concentrating on the kids," Bert Fields, Cruise’s lawyer said on Friday.

On the other side of this, Holmes’ attorney described the divorce as "a personal and private matter for Katie and her family."

"Katie's primary concern remains, as it has always been, her daughter's best interest," Jonathan Wolfe said in a statement.

This was Holmes’ first marriage and the third for Cruise. Prior to Holmes, Cruise had two children from his marriage with Nicole Kidman. The pair got divorced in 2001 after being together for 11 years.

Before that, Cruise’s first marriage was to actress Mimi Rogers – that one lasted only three years.
