The marriage of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, one of Hollywood’s highest profile relationships and a subject of endless tabloid speculation, is over.
Holmes announced through a lawyer Friday that she had filed for divorce from her movie star husband of five years. The news surprised the entertainment industry, which counts Cruise as one of its most recognizable stars, and apparently the actor himself. Cruise learned Holmes had initiated divorced proceedings in New York while he was working on a film set in Iceland.
This would be Tom’s 3rd divorce, the 50 year old actor and Mimi Rogers wed in 1987 and finalized their divorce in 1990. He and Nicole Kidman, who adopted two children together, were married in 1990 and divorced in 2001.
His marriage with Katie produced a 6 year old daughter Suri.
