Tom Cruise and his wife Katie Holmes are divorcing after five years of marriage.
It was Katie who filed for divorce citing "irreconcilable differences," and is asking for sole legal and primary residential custody of their 6-year-old daughter, Suri Cruise.
According to TMZ, Katie fears that Tom would drag Suri deep into Scientology, the church where her husband has a very strong ties. She does not want Tom to control decisions relating to religion.
"Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy to work this out," Cruise representative, Amanda Lundberg said.
Cruise, 49, and Holmes, 33, were married at an Italian castle in November 2006 in a lavish Italian ceremony.
Their marriage was Holmes' first and the third for Cruise, who'd earlier been married to actress Mimi Rogers and has two children from his previous marriage to Academy Award-winning Nicole Kidman.
The couple, who have not been seen together since February, are estimated to be worth about $275m combined.
The report said that Tom is very sad and he did not see this coming. Actually, he was spotted wearing his wedding ring just this week while filming in Iceland and Katie also wore her ring recently.
