Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes split

2012-06-29 20:01
Los Angeles - Hollywood superstar couple Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are planning to divorce, People magazine reported, citing Holmes' attorney.

"This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family," Holmes' attorney Jonathan Wolfe told the magazine.

"Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest."

The pair married in an elaborate ceremony in Italy in 2006 and they have one daughter together, six-year-old Suri.

Cruise, 49, is among Hollywood's highest-paid actors and is currently appearing in the movie musical Rock of Ages.

Cruise was previously married to actress Mimi Rogers and actress Nicole Kidman with whom he has two children.

Holmes, 33, rose to fame on US television series Dawson's Creek and has worked in big-budget movies such as Batman Begins.

Her marriage to Cruise is her first.

      Best thing she could have done, save her kid from this Scientology sprouting moron!!Maybe he can come out of the closet and couple up (physicaly speaking) with Travolta and sing Scientology verses!!! Katie go find a real man!!

      He will not be jumping on couches any more

      I'm sorry to sound so incensitive but this story is a play ground for satire. Tom "Cruise" their relation"SHIP" sunk bring the cruise to an abrupt end. Hell the marriage is shorter than Tom Cruise. Like I said before marriage is "Mission Impossible", his heart has now been ripped apart and lost in "Oblivion". If Tom is so much into scientology he shouldve married Pamela Anderson, everything of her's is artificial. Him and John Travolta should just get together and exchange each other's "Sword Fish". Plus Kate is getting the mansion with this divorce settlement-meaning cruise will be jumping and sleeping on Oprah's couch. Tom should just come out the closet, R Kelly did, he shouldn't be ashamed of his sexuality; it's not like his coming out as a serial rapist. Any way Kate leave the Cruise and come on board my Moby Dick...gosh puns are great!

      Don't get why the majority are Tom Cruise haters, he seems like a decent guy minus Scientology. I mean MI4 was the bomb!!

  • Stewart Croucamp - 2012-06-29 20:10

    Has Tom found interest in another man?

      kobus.hattingh.5 - 2012-06-29 20:36

      John Travolta perhaps? LOL

      JohncarlosBiza - 2012-06-30 03:39

      No but he's Cruising

  • jaco.vanniekerk.14 - 2012-06-29 20:12

    Thankfully he won't be able to jump on Oprah's coach nect time he finds the \love of his life\.

  • mrp721 - 2012-06-29 20:47

    This marriage was doomed from the start, Tom is too fanatical with his scientology beliefs & Katie from the start didn't want any part of it... Took her long enough to decide to get divorced.. Tom is also a control freak... Shame, looks like he can't control Katie LOL

      Clive - 2012-07-01 15:13

      She knew about the Scientology cult thing before she married him. That said, she and her daughter are well out of it.

  • Cassandra Eileen Olivier - 2012-06-29 20:55

    Hopefully Suri can have a normal childhood now

  • catgirl1971 - 2012-06-29 21:11


  • jofouche - 2012-06-29 21:12

    He should just come out of the closet. Or who does he think is he still kidding. Or maybe scientology won't let him... Poor sucker.

      Riaan - 2012-06-30 18:11

      Would that be a wish come true?

  • JohncarlosBiza - 2012-06-29 21:28

    Finally came out of the closet

  • leon.vanderlinde.14 - 2012-06-29 21:54

    You have to build up your shoes with 6 inch soles to fit his shoes. He will 10 to 1 get the kid as he will have best lawyer. Shame poor Katie did not know what she let herself into. The man's ego is 50 times his size. No wonder he has difficulties.

  • cheslin.white.7 - 2012-06-29 22:15

    Top Gun is the coolest movie ever. No way Tom is gay.

      themba.thwala.98 - 2012-06-29 22:39

      Have you watched Knight and Day? I think it's the best ever! I agree though, only a gay guy would drive such a hot chick as Katie out of his arms

  • Shaun McDermott - 2012-06-29 22:38

    That Twat thinks he is Jesus in that Scientology nonsense. Katy once you get away from him you will have a normalish life..... but get away from Scientology its not healthy for you.

      Emile Myburgh - 2012-06-30 10:41

      Took the words right out of my mouth.

  • michael.deyzel.1 - 2012-06-29 23:58

    Tom and Kate splitting up...are you 'Suri'ous...... Sorry couldn't resist that one.

  • dennis.vermaak.5 - 2012-06-30 05:51

    Time to let the inner queen out Tommi !!

  • jonny.lechtman - 2012-06-30 13:06

    Come out the closet honey!

  • Samuel - 2012-06-30 15:24

    Tom and Katie are perfectly compatible-it's just that the couch broke.

  • owlcritic - 2012-06-30 15:42

    Good luck to Katie! Go Girl Go! The best decision of her life. He will certainly not make this easy on her, his ego won't allow him to. I do hope she has sound support, moral and otherwise from family, frienda and fans. She is going to need it. Him, I have lost all respect for. He makes even the worst chauvinists look like knights in shining armour.

  • taryn.hosford - 2012-06-30 16:08

    finally she has come to her senses.

  • sandra.johnstone.56 - 2012-06-30 20:42

    She found him in bed with John Travolta.

  • henk63 - 2012-07-01 10:14

    Seems it's divorcing season in Hollywood. Must be the weather.

  • ktamayi - 2012-07-01 12:57

    looks like the scientology world is sinking: 1st John Travolta, now Mr Cruise (must be something wrong with their beliefs)

  • carol.harvey.9406 - 2012-07-02 12:25

    Who cares ?!

  • iris.kaba.7 - 2012-07-02 17:25

  • iris.kaba.7 - 2012-07-02 17:29
