LOS ANGELES: After nearly six years of marriage, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise have decided to call it quits. It started as a fairytale romance with public proclamations of love, but now the parents of 6 year old Suri Cruise are parting ways.
"Katie filed the papers on Thursday", said Cruise’s lawyer Bert Fields. "Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children," Cruise’s representative, Amanda Lundberg, told The Associated Press.
Holmes’ attorney, Jonathan Wolfe, said "This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family. Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest."
Cruise showed up alone at recent premieres of the musical film ‘Rock of Ages’. Holmes also was absent earlier this month when Cruise received the fourth-ever Friars Club Entertainment Icon Award.
