As if Suri Cruise didn’t have it tough enough; being shuffled between New York City, Los Angeles and wherever her parents films are being shot and constantly being in the limelight. But now she has to deal with one of the biggest events of her young life. Her parents Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise are getting a divorce!
“This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” says Holmes’s attorney Jonathan Wolfe told People Magazine. “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”
Tom issued a statement saying, “”Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy.”
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes aka TomKat have been married for five years. They famously wed at an Italian castle in November 2006 after the birth of their daughter Suri Cruise in April of the same year. As of now, the superstar couple have not issued a statement about what went wrong in their marriage but there are several factors that could be to blame. First, the two never seemed to be in the same place, with their filming schedules and promotions, they were both very busy. Also, there is a whole lot of pressure on the couple, from photographers capturing every outdoor moment, to Tom’s strict Scientology lifestyle, to the fact that Hollywood marriages never seem to work.
Recently, there had been some clues that there may have been trouble brewing. Katie Holmes is almost always by Tom’s side at big movie premieres but she was totally missing in action at the Rock of Ages premiere. Their last big outing was in December for the opening of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.
Tom Cruise recently said in an interview with People about whether he and Katie would be adding to their family that, “I’m so happy with three.” Now this statement makes total sense.
But our hearts go out to the one who will be most affected by the divorce Suri Cruise. Hopefully they two will have an amicable split.
