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."

The pre-nup is fine. The issue will not be custody, either...as he likes his free time and works to maintain the image. So in that regard, this is not news.

I think most of us predicted this; she was bound to wake up and see how her life was not her own.

I hope she'll consider coming back to NC, which would welcome her with open arms. (Without jumping on any couches, though)

I really hope she does not succumb to his evil and leave poor Suri behind for him to raise like he did with Nicole!!

AND THERE YOU HAVE IT FOLKS. The last pictures taken of Katie at the bottom, she actually looks like she's cracking a smile, or maybe that an evil grin because the weight of the world has finally been lifted off her shoulders.

It kills me when all these celebrities say something like, "primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest." No, your primary concern should have always been your spouse, as always. But no, it's KIDS! KIDS! KIDS! Maybe that is why these marriages are busting up. But who knows what the other side of the story is.

Is anyone really surprised by this? When they started "dating" there were rumors that he had a bunch of Hollywood starlets brought to him so he could find "the perfect one". There was a contract that the women would have to sign. Apparently, it's true. Katie signed a 5 year contract and is now bolting out of there. Let's see how long before Tommy Boy has another young actress on his arm. He is already on the lookout for the "next one".
