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."

Not a surprise at all!!! Now Tommy can find another sham marriage to deflect the gay rumors. It's been out there since the early 90s that he is gay. Wonder why these B list actresses don't stay married to him long?
Maybe he & his Scientologist Buddy Travolta will come out of the closet now? Nahhhhhh

Lets hope she's less afraid of Scientology than Nicole was and refuses to leave Suri behind. There isn't anything in the world that would make me leave my child behind to grow up in that insanity!!!!

You must be very happy TMZ and staff. It's been rather slow, celebrity news wise anyways. But, now you have something that you can focus solely on, sending photographers to follow the three of them( Little Suri as well) on theirn every step in hopes of an exclusive photo of someone upset by all of this. You can now disect their entire lives piece by piece and print outlandish lies, all in the name of journalism, if you can call it that. Your entire staff must have did a little dance upon learning the news.Congratulations to you.

She's a nutbag that's spoiling her daughter rotten. She's like those pageant mom loons. And well, he's a nutbag, too. Either somebody was caught cheating, they are arguing over raising the daughter (which a divorce isn't gonna cure), he's never around, or all the above.

I bet she got tired of him playing "hide the sausage" while he barricaded himself in their closet.

I am so not suprised by this at all. I am more suprised by the couples that LAST over 20 years.

I'm sure the reason she was still wearing the ring in the recent pics was because they wanted to control the story. If she stopped wearing he ring before announcing the divorce the media would have been all over it.
