Talk about risky business: after just five years of marriage, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce. According to TMZ, Katie blindsided Tom yesterday when she anonymously filed the divorce papers in NY, citing “irreconcilable differences.” If these crazy kids can’t make it, what hope do the rest… Ah, nevermind. We all saw this coming, didn’t we?
Holmes asked for sole legal custody and “primary residential custody” of Suri, the couple’s six-year-old daughter. She has also asked Cruise for a “suitable amount” of child support, along with a division of property in the divorce docs. However, she made no mention of a pre-nup arrangement based on California law in the file, according to TMZ.
"This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family," says Holmes’s attorney Jonathan Wolfe. "Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest." Judging by her hefty demands, we’d say that it’s not just for Suri’s best interest. After all, it does help that Cruise had a net worth of $250 million when the couple married in November 2006. And, of course, giving an exclusive to People doesn’t necessarily indicate that it’s a “personal and private” affair, huh?
At least they stuck in there longer than Kim Kardash-outta-the-altar…nothing can top their short-lived 72 days of wedded bliss.
