Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise Called it Quits

Actress Katie Holmes is ending her five-year marriage to hubby Tom Cruise in a surprise split reportedly centered on Scientology. The 33-year-old actress wants sole custody of their daughter, Suri.

Holmes announced the breakup through her New Jersey-based lawyer Friday saying her primary concern is the couple’s 6-year-old daughter.

Sources say that the divorce is not about money -- Katie doesn't need Tom's money because she has plenty of it. And it will be well taken cared of under the terms of the prenup. 

On the other hand, Cruise’s camp said the 49-year-old “Top Gun” star is devastated.

“Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy,” Cruise’s rep said in a statement to the Daily News. One source told The News that serious disagreements over their star spawn fueled the breakup.

The A-list marriage was the first for Holmes and the third for Cruise, who previously was hitched to actresses Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman, with whom he has two adopted children.

“This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” Holmes’ lawyer Jonathan Wolfe said in a statement. “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”
