2012-06-30 00:00

TOM Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce.

Cruise, currently starring in the movie musical Rock of Ages and Holmes — who have been married for five years — have confirmed they have split, with Holmes’s attorney, Jonathan Wolfe, saying she wants to do what is best for their six-year-old daughter, Suri.

He said: “This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family. Katie’s primary concern remains … her daughter’s best interest.”

It is not known if divorce

papers have yet been filed in court.

Cruise — who has been married twice before, to Nicole Kidman and Mimi Rogers — wed the former Dawson’s Creek actress in an Italian castle in November 2006.

He is believed to be in Iceland filming a new movie, Oblivion, while Holmes is in New York.

Cruise recently gushed about his wife, saying he loved her “creativity” and claiming their relationship was “very special”.
