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've been expecting this story for a month or two now, Katie has been looking just about as miserable as a person can look without being addicted to drugs. In the words of NeNe Leakes Katie needs her "HAPPY BACK." I hope she gets it =)

She must've told Tom Cruise she was NOT having a second child if it meant no pain meds and no screaming during labor again. And I don't blame her!

I'm guessing her boarding pass to the Sea Organization's yacht will be revoked, as will her spot in the secret Arizona bunker where they keep the frozen toe of L. Ron Hubbard.

I kinda feel sorry for Tom. I think Katie used him. Her career hasn't been hot since Dawson's Creek. Now she has a beautiful little girl who everyone knows is used to the good life so she won't be hurting for money for the next 13 years. And she will forever get press for anything she does simply because she'll be known as Tom Cruise's ex and mother of his child. Never thought Tom was truly her type. Poor Tom thought he had a PYT?

Everyone in Hollywood knows he is gay and this marriage was a business decision. He needs to come out and live his life without worrying about not being a "leading man", it's 2012!!!! It is sad Suri grew up among a lie for so long.
