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."

THANK GOD
I'm sure that her parents and family are happy that she is getting away from Tom and his cult.
She was looking older every single day. I know he played a vampire once in a movie but with all his neediness and control freak ways, he must have sucked the life out of ole Katie.
She said once that she dreamed of marrying Tom Cruise. I guess the old saying is true, watch what you wish for, you just might get it.

You just have to love Ricky Gervais: 'I Love You Philip Morris,' Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor. Two heterosexual characters pretending to be gay," he said. "So the complete opposite of some famous Scientologists, then."

I read these comments and am amazed at the ignorance of Americans. Running off with John Travolta? C'mon people, get a life. There's a little girl in the middle of this that perfect Katie had with Tom, knowing he was into Scientology. If she didn't like it, why date him, marry him and have a kid with him? She doesn't have the right to take Suri away from her Dad. That poor little girl is going to be dragged through the coals with them because of decisions that KATIE made.

Katie and Tom is best read while cashing out your groceries in the check out line. Katie knew about Tom Scientology crap when she married , but she likes $$$$ . It you look at some pictures with Suri it's looks like Katie should have got out when Suri was a baby . Lots of damage to a little kid , these people are mean.

Children are generally resilient and Katie has every right to her own happiness and I'm proud of her to get out now! I can't imagine being with a religious nut who apparently is also a control freak...2 good reasons to bail!

I'm guessing she finally confirmed he's gay. She's young and horney, and he probably wasn't putting out. Not to mention he's the biggest dork. Remember the whole jumping on the couch scene? Can we say Loser?! All in all he did well; a sweet, beautiful daughter and filthy rich!
