UPDATE: 2:08PM EST
Katie Holmes filed for divorce and is asking for sole custody of Suri, taking Tom Cruise completely by surprise.
We know Katie filed the divorce docs in New York on June 28, citing “irreconcilable differences.” She is asking for sole legal custody and “primary residential custody” of the couple’s 6-year-old daughter, Suri.
We also know Katie is asking for a “suitable amount” of child support.
There’s more than just trouble in paradise.
People Magazine got the exclusive news of the couple’s separation through Katie’s attorney:
“This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family. Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”
Katie and Tom got married back in 2006, and have one child: their 6-year-old daughter Suri Cruise.
We’re sorry to hear of their split, but we hope Tom and Katie can find happiness in the future.
