Unfortunately, one of our favorite Hollywood couples is divorcing. People magazine reported that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are divorcing after five years of marriage. According to the actress’ attorney Jonathan Wolfe, “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.” Soon after Holmes’ announcement, Cruise released his own statement on the split. “Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children,” his rep told People. “Please allow them their privacy to work this out.” Holmes filed in New York on Thursday, and according to TMZ, she is seeking sole custody and “primary residency custody” of Suri, 6, as well as a “suitable amount” of child support. This is unfortunate news as the Cruise family was one of Today’s Modern Families favorite Hollywood blended families. It seems Hollywood as of late has had an unfair share of divorces. Being in an everyday (re)marriage is tough and takes work, I can only image that adding all of the pressures of Hollywood makes it even harder. We wish the Cruise family well.
