Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes File for Divorce
It looks like Tom Cruise’s latest marriage will end the same way his first two did – in divorce. Last Friday, it was announced that Katie Holmes has filed for divorce from Cruise after six years of marriage. They have one daughter together.
Sources have indicated that Katie Holmes has taken her daughter Suri and moved into a new apartment in New York. She is reportedly seeking sole child custody of their daughter.
Tom Cruise is currently in Iceland shooting a new movie. However, his publicist released a statement saying that he is devastated and heartbroken by his latest divorce. Interestingly, all three of Cruise’s marriages have ended when his wife was 33 years old. Is this an odd pattern or simply a strange coincidence? Most likely, Cruise is the only one who can answer this question with any degree of certainty.
It is still uncertain the extent to which Cruise’s devotion to Scientology impacted Katie Holmes’ decision to divorce him. However, there has been speculation that she was concerned about Cruise’s desire to send their daughter to Sea Org, an organization affiliated with the Church of Scientology.
Katie Holmes will soon join Nicole Kidman and Mimi Rogers as the women who were formerly married to Tom Cruise. How long before this exclusive club adds a fourth member?
