Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are divorcing after five years of marriage, Holmes' attorney Jonathan Wolfe has confirmed.

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

The couple, who had not been spotted together publicly since February, wed in a lavish ceremony in Italy in November 2006.

It was the first marriage for Katie, 33, who was the one to file for the divorce on June 28, but did so anonymously.

"Katie has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy," Tom's rep, Amanda Lundberg, said.

Katie, who also failed to appear at the London premiere of Rock of Ages to support Tom, is seeking sole legal and primary residential custody of Suri, the couple's 6-year-old daughter.

Tom had recently spoken publicly about his soon-to-be ex, calling her "an amazing woman."

It is the third divorce for the actor, who split from Mimi Rogers in 1990 and second wife Nicole Kidman in 2001.
