Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are divorcing after five years of marriage.
“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.”
The couple, who married in November 2006 in a lavish Italian ceremony, are parents to daughter Suri, 6.
Cruise and Holmes started dating in 2005 and were very public with their relationship. They became engaged in Paris, and Cruise couldn’t contain his excitement.
“Yes, I proposed to her. … It was early this morning at the Eiffel Tower, so I haven’t slept at all,” Cruise told People at the time, adding, “Today is a magnificent day for me, I’m engaged to a magnificent woman.”
Cruise recently spoke about Holmes in Playboy, saying: “She is an extraordinary person, and if you spent five minutes with her, you’d see it. Everything she does, she does with this beautiful creativity. She’s funny and charming, and when she walks into the room, I just feel better. I’m a romantic. I like doing things like creating romantic dinners, and she enjoys that.”
