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."

Now we can toss Cruise onto the Homowood Shiitepile. These people and the way they live is destroying this nation fooling kids and women too mostly into thinking that everyone lives this way and if you don't have a gay lover and three marriages and 15 kids and 30 million bucks to blow you're a loser. These people are the losers. My grandparents came here with nothing and were married for 65 years and lived together the entire time and now it's normal at least to the people who watch network television and the regurgitated crud coming from out west and NYC... the Today Show to Leno Show crowd... they live in a fantasy world where scientists and teachers and people of good character are useless and these people rule the world... they live in that world and think they own the world. As far as I'm concerned anyone who ruins a marriage has done the worst thing adults can do in a lifetime. Money and child support and all the freaking Ritalin and psycho dr's and what not doesn't smooth that shiiiite over. EVER.

I wasn't really expecting it at this point. It came out of nowhere; I haven't heard any rumors about a possible divorce. I don't know if I expected them to stay together forever but wasn't expecting it now either.

At this very moment, Momager is sitting in front of her computer, screaming to the heavens, fire flowing from her mouth and nostrils and smoke blowing from her ears. She's turned into Wiley E. Coyote and someone needs to drop an acme safe on her head. Must be killing her to see her below a thread. Poor baby. Yo, Kris, why don't you start a rumour that you and the mannequin you married are about to separate.

I guess it's time for a new child-bride that Tom can control completely.

I'm a little shocked but then again I've never cared for 'TomKat'. Hopefully, Katie can get her career back together.

good for Katie! she probably had enough of being dragged into a cult. I used to like Tom Cruise as an actor, but since he has turned to Scientology...he has completely lost his mind, from jumping up and down on Oprah's couch, to calling people "glib", from dissing Brooke Shields for taking antidepressants (which was non of his damn business) he is insane!

Not shoking I saw this coming, she auditioned for the part, got it, realized he was a closet case and his cult was insane, realized he was gay and insane, so yeah for her! I hope she takes him to the cleaners, he blindsided Nicole, so now he is the blindsided...he is a jerk anyhow.

This is a bad deal for everyone. I never like to see this. This was an odd couple from the start. She was so young and blinded by his celebrity. This guy has now had 3 failed marriage. Like Kathleen Madigan says, "after this he should just be denied a marriage license. No, you've tried that before. you suck. No more marriages for you"
