After just five short years of marriage, Hollywood power couple Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have split. The couple announced their plans to divorce today.

"This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family," Holmes's attorney Jonathan Wolfe told People. "Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest."

Cruise and Holmes got engaged in the summer of 2005 after a very public whirlwind romance that left many feeling it was all a publicity stunt. Their pregnancy was announced a short time later.

Their daughter, Suri, was born in April 2006. The couple wed in a lavish ceremony in an Italian castle in November 2006.

Since then, their relationship has constantly been scrutinized for its sincerity — or lack thereof. Rumors swirled that Cruise held casting calls for the real-life role of his wife and that Holmes won the contract.

Is that contract now up at the five-year mark?

The pair had been seen together publicly less and less often in recent months, although Holmes is frequently spotted out and about in New York City with Suri, now 6 years old.

Cruise is currently in Iceland filming Oblivion. His latest flick Rock of Ages bombed at the box office — a failure that could have put more pressure on an already struggling marriage.

Reps for Cruise have yet to comment.

What ever both of your think are right? Please look behind and think about your lovely kid that she is not an animal or doll that both of you want to win and get her. Religion is not a last answer for you life, but real heart is the right answer. Think carefully not use your angry to make decision.

Tom Cruise is crazy, that's why. Very talented, but nuttier than a fruitcake.

Seriously. It's all about TOM. Good Lord folks ... he had his beautiful girl friend / fiancee / wife get rhinoplasty.

This is, indeed, wonderful news!

I think it had something to do with Scientology. Who knows for sure but Holmes was raised a Catholic.

Tom I think is in a different world with his new religion that they have put together and gave it a name. I do respect any religion, but something is not right with his.

Is it not obvious to people that Tom's first love is his religion?

He thought Katie would make him straight. And it just didn't work out. Boo hoo.

Has anyone noticed Tom Cruise's personality changes. He was so nice and kind in the Rosie O Donnell talk show days. A few years later, and he was so nasty when things didn't go his way. Imagine living with that! She probably couldn't take it anymore.

Debi, you're Katie Holmes aren't you. I know only Katie would say "straighten his balls out."

debi June 29, 2012 | 12:03 PM

Because she is obviously a beautiful,fresh,happy looking lady and he has gone downhill...not handsome or clean looking or happy or anything pleasant,so I hope his next wife interview,if that was the case,lands him with the he deserves,that will straighten his balls out. :) Go Katie!! Good luck to you and your daughter always!

I'm an 80's kid and I love Rock of Ages. Thought he did great.

He doesn't do well at marriage and she probably got tired of him. As for her being the winner of a contract wife deal, anything is possible. I wondered how long this would last after what he did to Nicole Kidman and Mimi Rogers. Once a loser always a loser.
