Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting DIVORCED ... after 5 years of marriage.

Katie's attorney, Jonathan Wolfe released a statement saying, "This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family."

Wolfe adds, "Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest."

TMZ has learned Katie filed the docs in NYC ... and wants SOLE custody of Suri.

We're told Tom and Katie have a prenup.  The net worth of both Tom and Katie is around $275 mil, but clearly Tom raked in most of that.

For what it's worth, Katie did not attend any of the "Rock of Ages" premieres.

Tom and Katie have one child together, Suri, who is 6-years-old.

49-year-old Tom has 2 children from his previous marriage to Nicole Kidman. He was also married to actress Mimi Rogers from 1987 to 1990.

Cruise and 33-year-old Holmes were married in November 2006 in a lavish ceremony held at an Italian castle.  The split was first reported by People.com.

Tom has been spotted in Iceland this week where he's been shooting a movie called "Oblivion."

Update #2 -- Tom and Katie were HOLDING HANDS in Iceland just 2 weeks before Katie filed for divorce ... more proof Tom was truly "blindsided" by Katie's decision to end the marriage.

Tom needs to give up on the beards and just live a single life.

Katie always looked so miserable with him; now maybe she can find happiness, not that I feel the least bit sorry for her since she agreed to go along with this charade.

She does seem to really love her daughter and I hope she gets custody, unlike Nicole who never gave a damn about those adopted kids. She admitted she never sees them and that while she was with Tom, they called her Nicole.

At least she got away before they all drank the Jim Jones kool aid.

Wouldn't Cruise have more in common with a woman closer to his own age and a fellow scientologist, than with Katie who he had nothing in common with and wanted nothing to do with his crazy religion? Always thought Cruise tried way to hard to sell us on this relationship, the couch jumping, the public makeouts etc

Tom is now a three time loser in marriage, does he even really like woman? Anyone could see Katie was too young for him and they had nothing in common. I thought it was very odd that he would jump up and down on a couch and do public makeout sessions with Katie everywhere but never did this with his first two wives?. It was almost like Tom Cruise was trying way too hard to sell this relationship

My guess is that Katie filed. I remember that she gets so many mills per year married plus for having a kid. I bet Tom is pissed that she filed, and I bet she ends up with Suri. (and child support!)

The five year agreement is probably up so she is free. I bet she has been wanting freedom for 4 years and 11 months ha ha
