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."

Katie towered over Tom when they stood next to each other. He probably wanted a younger girl or more John Travolta in his bed.

lol. I'm surprised she stayed this long. I guess scientology wasn't giving her career a big enough boost to deal with him.

You know there are many people who say her "contract" was for 5 years. Thought it was a bunch of BS, but sounds like it wasn't. So now the cult will try to keep Suri with Tom I guess. Good thing Katie's dad is a divorce lawyer, hope she doesn't get screwed because of that cult Scientology.

Looks like "Rock Of Ages" bombing at theaters was the last straw for Katie
