For the past five years, one of the most famous couples in the world has been Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. While the couple appeared to be doing quite well together, recent sources have stated that the couple is planning to separate.

The news has come as quite a shock to most fans of the couple. Just a month ago, Cruise was quoted as saying that he loves Holmes as much now as he did when the couple first met. As of now, it is not clear exactly what caused the split, but reports are clear that Holmes has filed for divorce and has hired a high-profile attorney.

“This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” attorney Jonathan Wolfe said in a statement, which broke the story. “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”

In an interview with Playboy magazine in May, Cruise said he would be spending his birthday shooting a film in Iceland – without his significant other.

“My family, my wife, they understand. It’s who I am,” he said.
