Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes to Divorce.

11:05 AM PT -- Katie filed the papers
-- and Tom was "blindsided." Katie wants sole legal custody and "primary residential custody" of Suri.

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

Update #1 -- Sources tell TMZ ... Scientology was a major factor in Katie's decision to pull the plug on the marriage.

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.

With nearly half of ALL marriages ending in divorce, it doesn't take much to realize how bad the odds are for a Hollywood marriage. Anybody who's been married knowed how painful it is regardless of how rich or famous you are.

So much for all of that jumping up and down on Oprah's couch. Still the failure of their marriage should not really be cause for rejoicing by so many of the posters here today. The two of them are more than just pictures and stories in the tabloids.

Don't think so. I'll bet that CREEP cruise had KH followed everywhere, house & phone bugged and GPS on all vehicles.


Plus you know all bills, like her cell phone bill, went to his office so he could track her.


It will be interesting to see if KH can get away from the cult.

Tom Cruise likes guys...He should just come out of the Scientology closet holding hands with his lover John Travolta...Congrats Katie you are leaving the occult and the public welcomes you back with open arms! Poor girl was probably neglected and controlled

What happened to getting to know one another before deciding to create another human being? Is that too old fashioned of me? Are children just accessories now? It's bugs me that selfish, rich idiots do things like this for publicity and never seem to think about the innocent kids who get dragged through their muck, too.

I don't know all things Tom Cruise but I remember some statements he made about the type of stewardesses allowed to serve him.....My guess here is that Katie is in full mommy mode. The problems probably started when Suri hit about 2 years old. Now she is school age and he probably wants some wierd schooling for her that Katie doesn't want. He also probably sees Katie as a Mommy now instead of his hot wife so he treats her poorly. It's difficult to get full legal custody unless he's done something that has caused or will cause Suri harm. Probably the outcome of two people who weren't well matched to begin with. Just guessin........

I must admit I am a lil surprised. Personally I always found him creepy and weird, but they seemed happy together.

I have always thought this marriage was a sham. I have a funny feeling the guy has some closet issues just like John Travolta. I never thought he was straight.

I love Tom, but he's like the male Elizabeth Taylor.
