Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are set to divorce after five and a half years of marriage.

The end of their relationship was announced via Katie's lawyer, who said: "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."

It has also been claimed by TMZ that Katie filed for divorce citing 'irreconcilable differences' and has asked for sole custosy of their six-year-old daughter Suri. The news comes just days before Tom's 50th birthday, and the actor is said to be "deeply saddened" by the news.

Their split has come to a shock to the showbiz world and the public, who have watched Tom and Katie become one of Hollywood's most famous couple since they got together in 2005.
