Jun 29, 2012 by Ian Evans

A lawyer for actress Katie Holmes has told People magazine that Holmes and Tom Cruise are divorcing after five years.

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

The couple have one child, Suri, 6. She was born in April 2006. The couple married in a lavish Italian ceremony in November of that year. It was Holmes’ first marriage and Cruise’s third as he was previously married to actresses Nicole Kidman and Mimi Rogers.
