Katie Holmes Divorces Tom Cruise After 5 Years

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are divorced.
Holmes, 33, who came to fame* as the star of television teen drama “Dawson’s Creek” in 1998, was the one who asked for the divorce, so she will not receive a big portion of Cruise’s estimated* $270  million.  However, he will pay out $10 million in child support for their daughter Suri, who is now 6, between now and her 18th birthday.

In Happier Times

Holmes will have primary custody* of Suri, but Cruise will be allowed to see her.  He also has two adopted children from his second marriage, to Australian actress Nicole Kidman.  They are now teenagers.
This is Cruise’s third divorce.  Coincidentally,* they have all happened when his wives were 33 years old.
The two have not spoken publicly about the reasons for the divorce but it is widely believed that Cruise’s belief* in Scientology is the main cause.
The  two issued* this statement*: “We are committed* to working together as parents to accomplish* what is in our daughter Suri’s best interests. We want to keep matters* affecting our family private and express our respect for each other’s commitment to each of our respective beliefs and support each other’s roles as parents.”
However, it has been reported* that part of the agreement is that Cruise is forbidden* to take Suri to a Scientology church or any Scientology meetings.  Many people see Scientology as more of a cult than a religion.  Holmes is Catholic.
