What in the world is happening to some of Hollywood’s most noted couples?! I sent my memo way back in January that 2012 is the year of love but I guess with the dog days of summer and being that we are at the half way mark of the year; Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes decided to call it quits.
Yes! The “Rock of Ages” star Cruise, 49, and “Dawson’s Creek” actress Holmes, 33, have announced their split. PEOPLE learned exclusively that the couple, who has been married for five years, had decided to go their separate ways. Jonathan Wolfe, Holmes’s attorney stated, “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.”
So who decided this split? A rep for Cruise told PEOPLE that Holmes was the one to file and that Cruise is “deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children.” Tom has a daughter, Suri, 6, with Katie and two adopted children from his previous marriage with actress Nicole Kidman. This will mark the third divorce for Cruise; I just don’t get it? Who wouldn’t want to be married to Tom?
What do you think about the divorce? Were you surprised?
