Turns out the third time wasn’t a charm for Tom Cruise, the rather shocking news is that Katie Holmes filed for divorce on Thursday, just days before his birthday. Friend and attorney Bert Fields told Reuters:
“Katie filed for divorce yesterday. Tom is very saddened by that, and right now he is concentrating on the kids…Tom wants to be very private.”
Holmes’ lawyer, Jonathan Wolfe, was the first to confirm the split saying, “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.”
So, privacy and secrecy until one of them (or “a source”) starts leaking information. Maybe it was an amicable divorce. Maybe they fell out of love in the last year of their five-year marriage…
Or she wanted to be in more movies that people had heard of. I have no idea, but it should’ve been a clue that they hadn’t made a personal appearance together since February.
