For those of you with bets on Katie Holmes’ marriage to Tom Cruise here’s your payday. After five years of couch jumping and Suri carrying, Katie has filed for divorce from Tom!
“This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” says Holmes’s attorney Jonathan Wolfe. “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”
Cruise’s rep tells PEOPLE: “Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy.” [People]
Tom is said to be BLINDSIDED by this decision. Um, whaaaa? There have been rumors of Katie being unhappy for about a year now. And this is just after the reports of Tom *possibly* getting cozy with a topless model on his W Magazine shoot.
No one should REALLY be surprised by this. The only thing that I am really wondering is if Katie will get the full custody of Suri that she is seeking. Tom’s second wife, Nicole Kidman, was unable to keep full custody of the children she and Tom adopted together. :-/
Good luck Katie!
