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."

Why won't Tom just come out of the closet already? It's not a big deal, nobody cares and it's time for him to just live his life the way he wants to. No more beards!

The saddest thing of the whoke situation is that there are 3 human beings who look up to this man and who will love probably always love him unconditionally! Shame on you Kate for selling your soul and your daughter and for enabling someone who is clearly mentally disturbed. Shame on both of you! Maybe now Niclole will get her children back!

It's all good. Katie gets a boatload of money and Tom can finally marry John Travolta on the Scientology Spaceship!

I've been waiting to hear this for a few weeks now. Congrats Katie!! You go girl!! Get far away from that idiotic man!! And please get a DNA test on that beautiful baby girl ASAP.. Josh Jackson is that baby's father. They were together in London like 2 weeks before she got with Cruise and if you look at pictures of the two of them side by side they have the EXACT same nose, mouth, and cheeks..

The Scientology Cult could not keep them together. She did what is best for her child because if the child ended up in the cult the child would be a slave too. Blackmail is the primary product of the Scientology cult. The cult is indeed fascist.

Who did not see that coming? They were both kind of lame. Im sure the kids will be taken care of at least financially.

How are we suppose to feel bad for these people. when you think about it tom Cruise divorced Nicole Kidman two weeks before their tenth anniversary so he would have to pay under the prenup. Basically Katie just beat him to the punch. Good for her.

I don;'t think it is about money, it is about control with Tom Cruise. When was the last time we have seen katie in a movie or even a t.v. show. He is the type of guy that wanted to keep her under his thumb. i bet he is not jumping on any couches now.

So does this leave Tom and Johnny T free to finally come out of the Scientologists closet and have the "Super Mo Wood Wedding of the Century" with Obama as the ring boy ?

Finally! Katie PLEASE remove yourself from all scientology and both of you will be free. Your daughter will thank you later for taking her out of such a dangerous environment. If you are not aware of the dangers please get educated on this cult through the internet and books.
