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."

I guess he finally got the call from the mother ship that he must return to Xenu and the Galactic Confederacy.

I wonder if it will come out that Suri Cruise is really Chris Kleins' daughter.

Oh my, who would ever have guessed? I am totally shocked! Hopefully she can now reign in that little brat Suri before she is another ruined H'wood spawn.

Katie doesn't have to run, it was always a five-year contract. She did her time.

very surprised it lasted this long, BUT if 10 years has passed and now he has to pay up then I can see why she stayed, she is going to be filthy rich and won't have to work another day in her life.

5 year contract was up....now maybe we will find out if she was really pregnant, which I doubt as they had only pretended to be dating for a month or two before she 'accidentally' got "pregnant." Now, we will watch him steal Suri from her, like he did the older two kids he had with Nicole Kidman.

Anyone remember, Entertainment Tonight when he was filming the last Mission Impossible movie. He's about 10 feet away on a prop and Katie and Suri are over in the corner. You can hear him say "Love you, Love you", then almost as if on cue, and FORCED, "Love you both". I always thought that was planned.
