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."

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

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.

it as always seemed that he was leading Katie around by her nose anyway .. wonder who finally got to her about ditching this marriage ... hoping it was Suri and the desire to make up her own mind about life ... this guy is a control freak

I hope Katie and Ashton Kutcher get married! They have so much in common having recently divorced an older A-List celebrity with unusual religious beliefs.

I hope they can work things out. Katie Holmes is spoiled and will never find anyone like him. She should also be thinking of her daughter. I'm sure NK would love to have him back. She looks so unhappy with KU.
It's unfortunate that people are saying such mean things about this breakup. They don't deserve it. There are children involved and they don't need to be hurt by these comments. She knew about the Scientology issues beforehand. I hope she wasn't in it for the money. That would definitely be heartbreaking to several fans also. BTW, Suri looks just like TOM and you are blind if you don't see it. Have some class and respect about their personal issues.

Tom Cruise will not have trouble finding a replacement . He has money is a "star" the next lady might just ask for a bigger pre nup is all. lol Seriously this man obvious has issues if he believes that scientology bunk. He is heavily indoctrinated as you can see by his ramblings on his youtube video. I am just glad this young lady Kate finally is getting out from under him thumb. We can only all hope she can protect her daughter from Mr Cruises wacko ideas.

Seriously    

Prearranged marriage orchestrated by the scientolgists to make more money from Cruise. No wonder he loves making Mission Impossible movies! He thinks he is a super hero!

She should have known there were issues when he started calling her "KATE". Control freak, weirdo Scientologist, over-actor, super phony. I'm glad she escaped. Maybe she will start smiling again, and Suri can meet her REAL dad Chris Klein.

A guy I knew at work five years ago told me he had a friend in a law office where a contract was drawn up between Katie and Tom. She had to stay with him 5 years and then she could split. She would get the moon. I laughed at the time. Hmmmm maybe it was true.
