Actors Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have announced that they are divorcing.
Holmes filed for divorce on June 28, according to Cruise’s lawyer Bert Fields.
Amanda Lundberg, Cruise’s publicist, is urging people to respect “their privacy to work this out,” while Jonathan Wolfe, an attorney for Holmes, called the issue “a personal and private matter for Katie and her family.”
The couple had wed in Italy back in November 2006, which was just seven months after their daughter, Suri, was born. As recently as the June edition of Playboy, Cruise, 49, had stated that he was still in love with Holmes, 33.
Cruise is perhaps one of the world’s most recognizable stars, with roles in such hits as Risky Business, Top Gun, and Jerry Macguire, while Holmes is best known for her role on the teen drama TV series Dawson’s Creek.
The two actors began dating in 2005, and months into their relationship Cruise had made headlines by jumping on a couch, expressing his love for Holmes, on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
The marriage between Holmes and Cruise was her first and his third. Previously, Cruise had been married to actresses Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman, and has two children with the latter.
