In a sudden move, Miss Holmes has decided to have filed for sole custody of the couple’s daughter Suri, six. Katie’s lawyer Jonathan Wolfe indicated of the split with Tom.
In this regard, the 33-year-old actress has lodged papers in New York blaming “irreconcilable differences” for scuppering her five-year marriage to the Hollywood heart-throb. “This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family. ‘Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.’
The actress filed documents in New York this week citing ‘irreconcilable differences’. Tom — previously wed to actresses Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman — has been in Iceland filming upcoming movie Oblivion while Katie, still wearing her wedding ring, and Suri have been in New York.
In this context, the actor is now preparing to spend his 50th birthday on Tuesday with son Connor. The actor is worth an estimated £160million and the difference is likely to spark one of the biggest divorce battles in Hollywood history.
