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."

Did you really need to add that little graphic saying that woman in the Iceland picture was not Katie? That woman is noticeably shorter than Tom, while Katie towers over him. I think Tom is like 5'6" and Katie is nearly 6'.

i guess katie FINALLY found out who satan really is: not a red-faced man with horns and a tail, but a 5 foot nutjob who looks like a ken doll. what put her over the edge wasn't the sciencetology, it was the missing dresses, pumps, and makeup

I was genuinely surprised to hear this, they are the only Hollywood couple I had hoped would make it other than Will and Jada.

Hate it for Suri but its probably a good thing so maybe I dont hate it for her. And I'm excited that Tom wont be laying out Katie's clothes for her anymore!!!

Yeah, big shocker! I always wondered who Suri's biological dad is. Katie never looked really happy in any photos, the whole marriage seemed 'off''. Katie is going to need all the support she can get. She is going up against Tom Cruise who is backed by his cult. I feel so bad for the child, hope she turns out okay.

Wonder what price she paid to get free of those people. Nicole had to virtually give up her kids. I don't think she had a clue as to the extent of the mess she was getting into.

She signed a 5 year contract for the marriage after he auditioned other people and they said no. Jennifer Ganer, Jessica Alba. The terms of the agreement were only 5 years, who can be surprised by this
