Remember that day on Oprah when Tom did the fool when he jumped up and down on the couch professing his love and adoration for Katie Holmes? Yeaaaaah, those days are over with. TomKat is no more!
After just five years of marriage, actor Tom Cruise and soon to be ex, Katie Holmes are divorcing, Us Weekly confirmed on Friday. The couple share a daughter, Suri, who is now 6 years old.
“Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest. This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” says Holmes’ attorney Jonathan Wolfe in a statement.
The couple wed in Italy in November 2006. It was the first marriage for The Kennedys actress Holmes and the third for Oscar nominee Cruise, who has two kids with second wife Nicole Kidman.
The news comes as a shock to fans of the couple, who always had overly fond things to say about each other, especially in interviews.
“She is an extraordinary person, and if you spent five minutes with her, you’d see it. Everything she does, she does with this beautiful creativity,” Cruise said during a June interview with Playboy.
Back in the August 2005 issue of W, Holmes, then 26, gushed to the mag, “I’ve found the man of my dreams. From the moment I met him it just felt like I’d known him forever. I was blown away. He’s the most incredible man. He’s so generous and kind, and he helps so many people, and, um, he makes me laugh like I’ve never laughed, and he’s a great friend.”
