Hollywood dream couple Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting divorced after five years of marriage, People magazine reported Friday.
The office of New Jersey divorce attorney Jonathan Wolfe confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that he is representing 33-year-old Holmes in the proceedings, but declined to say whether the process had formally begun.
“This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” the attorney told People magazine. “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”
Cruise, who turns 50 on Tuesday, wed Holmes in a storybook Italian castle in November 2006 after famously declaring his love for the former “Dawson’s Creek” star live on “Oprah.” They have a six-year-old daughter, Suri.
It was Holmes’s first marriage and Cruise’s third.
The split comes just 10 days after the “amicable” parting of US actor Johnny Depp and French singer/actress Vanessa Paradis, and will doubtless lead to renewed chatter about the pressures on Hollywood star couples.
Fireworks lit up the night sky above the 15th-century Odescalchi castle near Rome when Cruise and Holmes tied the knot on November 18, 2006 following a whirlwind romance.
Glitterati from the worlds of cinema, sports and music were on hand at the sprawling estate perched above the lakeside town of Bracciano as Holmes offered her hand to the “Mission Impossible” star.
Italian media reported that American Scientology leader David Miscavige officiated at the event, arguably the most high-profile Scientologists’ wedding to date, in a ceremony that lasted no more than 15 minutes.
Reports at the time said that under the prenuptial agreement, Holmes would receive $3 million for every year of the marriage plus ownership of a California mansion if they split.
Cruise, still one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars as shown by recent box office smash “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” was married to Australian actress Nicole Kidman from 1990 to 2001. The couple had two children.
He was also married to American actress Mimi Rogers from 1987 to 1990 and had a three-year relationship with Spanish actress Penelope Cruz after splitting up with Kidman.
Holmes, who was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio appeared in “Batman Begins” (2005) and starred alongside Adam Sandler in the critically panned 2011 romantic comedy “Jack and Jill.”
Air Force admits it ‘would’t be surprised’ if they were ‘Trump Turnberry’s largest customer’
The Air Force has not only been staying at Trump's resorts for three years, but they were also likely the largest customer of Trump's Scottish golf club.
Washington Post reporters David Fahrenthold and Jonathan O'Connell outed President Donald Trump for working his official relationship with the Saudi royal family so they'd stay at his hotels. Politico reporter Natasha Bertrand uncovered the fact that the U.S. Air Force was being used to funnel cash to the president's companies.
Trump's Turnberry resort was losing money until he was able to reroute Air Force plans to land in Scotland to refuel instead of a military base. While that might cost American taxpayers significantly more money, it was good business for the president. Now the resort is doing extremely well.
CNN commentators laugh at GOP strategist’s pathetic rationale for why Trump’s Hispanic comments aren’t racist
On Tuesday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," Mitch McConnell adviser and GOP strategist Scott Jennings offered a feeble defense of President Donald Trump's demand of his Hispanic adviser Steve Cortes at a rally in New Mexico that he say whether he prefers "the country or the Hispanics"
"Of course it masks racism, and he doesn't do a good job of masking it," said Democratic strategist Maria Cardona. "These comments were racist, ignorant and downright stupid. We shouldn't be surprised from what we've seen this president spew, from the moment he came down the escalator when he announced his campaign when he called Mexicans rapists and murderers and what else can we expect from this man? ... In the latest Univision/Latino Decisions poll, you have 71 percent of Latinos who said they will vote for the democratic candidate. 15 percent maybe will vote for Trump. He's in dire straits for Latinos."
‘Lewandowski gave the House what they needed for articles of impeachment for Trump’: Ex-Republican official
Corey Lewandowski gave Democrats what they needed to file articles of impeachment; a former Republican member of Congress confessed on MSNBC Tuesday.
During his hearing, Lewandowski admitted that President Donald Trump instructed him to obstruct justice. Lewandowski tried to claim that it's clear there was no obstruction because he went to the beach with his children instead. In fact, he sold out Trump for conspiring to obstruct justice and attempting to obstruct justice.
