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."

So that was a 5 year contract. I'm happy for Katie Holmes, she looked really sad most of the time.

This is good news for Katie and Suri. She should get into court asap and get a custody order in a fashion so this SOB cannot get the dark friends of Tom's screwing around with the truth.I remember when Katies movies were out there her being topless and such. Who knows she may get her career and sanity back but watch him with Suri, he is a freak as Nicole found out.

Why didn't they announce this yesterday and spare the entire country from having to endure the day-long coverage over the Supreme Court upholding heath-care reform? They are so selfish...

Best of luck to both of them. Divorce is never easy with a child involved. I hope Katie is allowed some sort of visitation.

If he wants to save what's left of his image, he better be nice to Katie (and not act like an ass like he did with Nicole). I bet Katie will start smiling again :-)
