Why Is Katie Holmes Divorcing Tom Cruise After Five Years Of Marriage?
Why Is Katie Holmes Divorcing Tom Cruise After Five Years Of Marriage?

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have revealed they are divorcing after five years of marriage.

The Hollywood superstar, 49, said he was ‘deeply saddened’ that Katie, 33, had filed for a separation.

Tom revealed that the former Dawson’s Creek actress had initiated the split, bringing a dramatic end to one of Hollywood’s most high-profile romances.

In a move that has come as quite a shock to the rest of the world, Katie is understood to have filed for sole custody of the couple’s daughter Suri, six.

‘This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,’ Katie’s lawyer Jonathan Wolfe said in a statement to People magazine.

‘Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.’

A spokesperson for Tom, who is currently in Iceland filming his new sci-fi movie Oblivion, said: ‘Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children.’

The actress filed documents in New York this week citing ‘irreconcilable differences’. She has asked for legal custody, primary residential custody and a ‘suitable amount’ of child support from her husband, TMZ reports.

In addition she has asked for the division of their property, although no mention of their pre-nuptial agreement is mentioned in the documents. The couple are worth a staggering $275 million, much of that owing to Tom’s box office success.

Katie is said to have told her husband of five-and-a-half years that she was filing for divorce, but she didn’t give him a chance to control the spread of the news, as he did with Nicole Kidman. The fact that she issued a solo statement speaks volumes about the end of their union.

The pair have not been seen together in public for almost three months; they were last pictured on April 5 while in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Furthermore, Katie failed to turn up to at any of the worldwide premieres of her husband’s latest film Rock of Ages, despite Tom’s constant protestations of love for his wife.

The final arguments seem to have been over where Cruise was going to spend his 50th birthday on Tuesday. He told her that he was planning to be on the set of his latest film Oblivion in Iceland and that seems to have been the last straw for her.

The gorgeous brunette had frequently been pictured looking drawn and exhausted during her marriage. One Hollywood source said she had been ‘utterly miserable with Tom for months, if not years’.

Indeed, the row over his birthday followed another bust-up over what Katie felt were embarrassingly bad taste pictures of him on the cover of W magazine last month. The photo’s saw him dressed – or rather undressed – as the rock star Stacee Jaxx, the character he plays in Rock of Ages. Two half dressed blondes were wrapped around him, one licking his face.

Katie was apparently ‘speechless’ with disgust and felt the pictures laid both of them open to ridicule.

Katie has chosen to stay with Suri in Tom’s New York apartment while he has travelled the world working. Suri has been her constant and only companion lately, and they are often photographed out together until late at night, and Katie – who gave up all the threads of her old life to become Mrs Tom Cruise – seems to have no other friends at all.

One Hollywood source said: ‘It was an open secret that she was utterly miserable with Tom, and had been for months if not years. They really couldn’t drag out the pretence any longer.’

When Tom was filming Rock of Ages in Miami, Katie came along with Suri and they made a family holiday of it. But since then they have spent no more than a handful of nights under the same roof.

‘Katie spent her time avoiding him, and they rowed terribly,’ one Hollywood source claimed.

Now that Katie has walked away from Tom, maybe Suri will be allowed to go to a regular school, rather than being home schooled, and enjoy a proper childhood instead of being taken out on the town until midnight. And maybe her Mum, Katie, will begin to look happy once again.

Amber Heard The Reason Behind Johnny Depp & Vanessa Paradis Split?
Amber Heard The Reason Behind Johnny Depp & Vanessa Paradis Split?

After months of speculation regarding Johnny Depp's marriage, it has been reported that he told Vanessa Paradis he no longer loves her after a row over Amber Heard texts.

Johnny apparently ended his relationship with Vanessa by telling her he didn’t love her anymore following a row over his Rum Diaries co-star Amber Heard. And to had fuel to the rumours, bi-sexual star Amber, 26, is said to have separated from her girlfriend, artist and photographer, Tasya van Ree.   

Vanessa is said - by a friend of the couple - to have discovered a number of flirty texts from Amber to Johnny, which let to a massive fallout between the couple months ago.

The source told Now: “They were over in LA in late November and Vanessa, 39, who’s an extremely jealous person, clearly suspected something. So that night she looked on his mobile phone and saw texts from Amber.

‘I know the texts were flirty, but Johnny never told me exactly what they said. I just know it was enough for Vanessa to go ballistic. She screamed at Johnny, accusing him of having deleted other texts from Amber. She even demanded to know if he had a second phone that he’d been hiding from her.”

As the row escalated, Johnny was said to shout, “I don’t love you anymore” which led to him spending the night in a hotel and subsequently began the split that was made public recently.

The French-born singer and actress and the American star had not been seen at a public event together since 2010.

Earlier this year, publications carried pictures and reports that Johnny and Amber enjoyed a trip together to Las Vegas on a private plane when he was in town promoting Tim Burton movie Dark Shadows.

Vanessa was nowhere to be seen and did not accompany him on any of his promotional duties for the film, nor did she appear at promotional events for The Rum Diary.

Johnny, 49, and Vanessa, have two children together, Lily-Rose, 13, and Jack, nine.

Most Shocking Celebrity Splits
Most Shocking Celebrity Splits

Celebrities never fail to shock us with their whirlwind romances, often followed by speedy divorces. But which celebrity splits have shocked us the most in recent years?

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony shocked the world last summer by announcing their divorce. The couple have twin toddlers - Max and Emme - and have both moved on in their love lives. The ex couple continued to work closely together on their TV project, and remain on good terms for the sake of their children.

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have become infamous for their failed marriage which lasted just 72 days. The couple are now in a bitter divorce battle. For some the split came as a shock, but for others, not so much, with many claiming Kim was in it purely for the money; a claim she fiercely denies.

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore didn’t have the odds in their favor due to the big age gap. However, despite the media attention and gossip, the couple appeared to be very much in love. Their marriage lasted six whole years but, sadly, the couple split after rumours that Ashton had cheated on his wife, on the eve of their anniversary (ouch!), which led Demi to spiral into depression and later, rehab.      

Actress Jennie Garth and her Twilight star hubby, Peter Facinelli, confirmed their split after being married for 11 years. The couple have three daughters of whom they are hoping to keep joint custody. Jennie’s jealousy over Peter’s ‘Twilight' success is said to have broken them up. Peter plays Carlisle Cullen in the hit Vampire movies.

Heidi Klum and Seal probably had the most shocking breakup of recent years. The couple’s split seemed to come out of nowhere, as they appeared to be very much in love. The couple have four children, three of which are biologically Seal’s, but all of whom he has raised. The couple married on May 10, 2005 on a beach in Mexico.   

On November 21, 2009, Heidi officially adopted Seal’s surname and became legally known as Heidi Samuel. Soon after, in December 2009, Seal officially adopted Leni, and her last name was changed to Samuel. During their marriage, Heidi and musician Seal renewed their vows to one another each year on their anniversary in front of family and friends.

On January 22, 2012, the couple announced that they were separating after almost seven years of marriage. She filed for divorce from Seal three months later on April 6, 2012. She also requested that her name be restored to her birth name of Heidi Klum.

Katy Perry Takes Nan As Date After Split With Robert Ackroyd
Katy Perry Takes Nan As Date After Split With Robert Ackroyd

After splitting with Florence and The Machine guitarist Rober Ackroyd, Katy enlisted super glamorous 91-year-old Ann Hudson as her date.

The 27-year-old Part Of Me singer even coordinated her shimmering floor-length gown with her smokin’ grandmother’s diamante walking stick. Ahead of the event, Katy teased on Twitter: ‘My date to tonight’s Billboard Music Awards is hotter than the Las Vegas weather. SMOKIN’!’

Later in the evening Katy was crowned winner of the Spotlight Award after she became the only female artist in history to have had five number one hits from the same album. Accepting her gong on stage, she said: ‘The real rock star here is my grandmother.. She’s 91 years old and she’s from Las Vegas. I can’t wait to go and do shots with you after this.’

Following her split from Brit comedian Russell Brand, Katy hooked up with with Robert Ackroyd at the Coachella Festival last month. But the singer, who also performed her new single Wide Awake at the ceremony last night, is reluctant to get into yet another long distance relationship and has apparently cooled things off with the tattooed musician.

A source told the Daily Mirror: ‘Rob was the first guy Katy had been with since splitting from Russell. She was still extremely fragile but had told pals their two weekends at Coachella together made her feel sexy and alive again. Even when Rob left to continue touring ­America with Florence they would speak on the phone up to three times a day and she’d be constantly texting him.’

But the parallels between Robert and her relationship with the British comic were just too much for her to handle.

‘The main thing which led to her split with Russell was spending the majority of her marriage to him on tour, and she said dating Rob felt like being with ­Russell all over again,’ the source continued.

‘It’s a shame as they both liked each other but Katy wants to be able to have a relationship with someone she isn’t constantly having to work out what time zone they’re in. Rob was gutted but Katy said she didn’t want to get in too deep and then break his heart so it was best to cut things off before they got serious.’

Johnny Depp denies rumours of a split at Dark Shadows premiere
Johnny Depp denies rumours of a split at Dark Shadows premiere

Johnny Depp has slammed reports that he and and his long-term girlfriend Vanessa Paradis are heading towards a split.

At the premiere of his new movie, Dark Shadows, in London, Johnny denied that his relationship with Vanessa is in trouble. In fact, the 48-year-old was quite forceful with his denial. ‘The rumours are not true,” he reportedly told The Sun newspaper. ‘They are absolutely not true.’

RadarOnline.com reported that Johnny and Vanessa, who have been partners for over 14 years and have two children together, were having troubles.

The website quoted a source as saying: ‘People around him are worried about how Johnny is doing because he and Vanessa seem so fractured right now. Their relationship is heading toward the end.’

However, despite the 39-year-old mother of Johnny’s two children staying away from his Dark Shadows premieres, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor insists that everything is fine.

‘No matter what I say about this, people believe the opposite. I can’t say enough about it not being over,’ he told British newspaper, The Sun.

The couple, who own a home in France and a Caribbean island, have not been spotted together in months and Vanessa also recently walked the red carpet of her premiere, of Café de Flore in Paris, alone.

Johnny and Vanessa are parents to Lily Rose,12, and ten-year-old Jack. He has a tattoo of his daughter’s name over his heart and one for Jack on his bicep. Johnny credits fatherhood with giving him a solid foundation.

Lady Gaga splits from boyfriend, Taylor Kinney
Lady Gaga splits from boyfriend, Taylor Kinney

Lady Gaga has reportedly split from her boyfriend of ten months, Taylor Kinney.

The Poker Face singer, 26, had been dating the 30-year-old ‘The Vampire Diaries' actor since they played lovers in her video for hit single 'You And I' last July. But Us Weekly magazine reports that the couple are now “on a break”.

A source said: “She will be touring non-stop until next year and has found she can’t have a relationship at the same time. There’s just no room for anything else. Her work is all-consuming.”

Lady Gaga is currently in Hong Kong as part of her 110 date ‘Born This Way Ball’ world tour, and is also going to be busy recording her next album. The singer - real name Stefani Germanotta - told Oprah Winfrey earlier this year how she was feeling maternal and wanted a family of her own.

She said: “Yes, I want kids, I want a soccer team and I want a husband. Yeah, I do. Well, you know, I’m being superfluous. I don’t want to have one kid. I want to have a few.”

But Lady Gaga, who is devoted to her work and her fans, who she calls her Little Monsters, added “not yet”.   

Amanda Seyfried and Josh Hartnett romance over already?
Amanda Seyfried and Josh Hartnett romance over already?

We recently reported that Josh Hartnett and Amanda Seyfried were rumoured to be dating, but already it appears the pair have split.

An insider said at the time: “Josh likes to keep things low-key, so they’ve just been hanging out.” However, Amanda has spoken about being reluctant to start a new relationship in the past, saying: “Although I think it’s easier to be in a relationship than be single, I just don’t know if I have the energy at the moment. In the past, whenever a relationship of mine ended, my friends would tell me to be single for a while, that it would be good for me.”

Amanda has been filming new movie musical ‘Les Miserables’ and the pair were unable to spend much time together as a result. The In Time actress has reportedly decided to end the romance with New York-based Hartnett because of the distance between them.

A source said: “Amanda’s been flying home to Los Angeles when she’s not in the studio. She has been trying to see Josh but it hasn’t worked. She decided to end things.”

This will be just another blow for actor Josh Hartnett, who has been taking meetings with agencies after leaving CAA and going in search of new representation to boost his career.

Katy Perry and Russell Brand set to split and divorce
Katy Perry and Russell Brand set to split and divorce

Following mass speculation about their relationship Russell Brand has announced that Katy Perry and Russell Brand’s 14 month marriage has ended.

The writing was firmly on the wall when the couple failed to spend Christmas together, with Russell Brand in Cornwall, England and Katy Perry in Hawaii. Sources close to the couple have been claiming since September that the couple were having trouble due to their work schedules.

In his announcement Russell said “Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.” This comes despite recently claiming he was looking forward to having children with Katy Perry when defending the state of their marriage. 

More details will likely come out over the exact cause of the divorce with some publications citing the differences in religion as a possible reason.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries were going to have a baby?
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries were going to have a baby?

They had one of the shortest marriages in celeb history, but it has now been revealed that just weeks after they became man and wife, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries agreed to try for a baby.

In a recent episode of ‘Kourtney and Kim Take New York’, the newlyweds were seen discussing their plans to start a family together, but it soon became clear they were on very different pages, with their marriage ending not long after.

During on conversation the couple decided to start a family and initially both Kim and Kris were excited by the prospect. Kim explained: ‘I feel like your life really starts when you start to have kids.’ She was seen asking her basketball husband  how he felt about starting a family and while he initially described the conversation as ‘weird’, he soon came around to the idea.

He told Kim: ‘Alright, let’s do it. I’m excited, I really want to.’

But just minutes later the couple were faced with the realisation that their ideas of how to raise a child differed greatly. After speaking to her mother, Kris Jenner, who told Kim she wasn’t ‘prepared’ to have children, the reality star confronted her husband about where he would want to live.

Kim asked him: ‘Where do you think that we are going to raise kids.’ While Kris admitted he wanted to bring his offspring off in his hometown in Minnesota, it was clear Kim had other ideas. She told him: ‘I want my kids to grow up with my sisters kids, they could spend a month in the summer in Minnesota.’ She then told him bluntly: ‘I’m not moving to Minnesota.’

Kim Kardashian can be seen on live TV crying her eyes out over her failed marriage to Kris Humphries. In the latest teaser for her TV show ‘Kourtney and Kim take New York’, she talks about her failed marriage to Kris Humphries, and feeling bad about the way it ended.

Kim married the basketball star in August but suffered a public backlash when she decided to file for divorce after just 72 days, with many claiming she married for money and publicity. Now it has emerged that Kim had been left upset by Kris’ ‘belittling’ comments, with some even suggesting that it was his 'mean' behaviour which led to Kim filing for divorce.
 
In a new episode of the spin-off show, the 31-year-old is left sobbing as she talks to her older sister Kourtney about the end of their marriage. She says, “He fell in love with me and I fell in love with him and now my feelings have changed… And I failed at this. You don’t think I feel bad?”
 
Another scene shows Kim and Kris talking about their future, and where they would live. When Humphries asks Kim about living in his home state of Minnesota, Kim is more focused on the success of her career, asking him: ”How am I going to have my career and live in Minnesota?” to which he replies: “Baby by the time you have kids, no one will probably care about you.”

Kim Kardashian divorce due to Kris Humphries ‘mean behaviour’

Given their marriage only lasted 72 days before she filed for divorce, speculation that Kim Kardashian had married for money and publicity were rife. But according to a U.S. magazine the breakdown of the relationship was in fact down to husband Kris Humphries and his mean behaviour.
 
It has been claimed that the basketball star not only neglected Kim, but he made a series of derogatory comments towards her and is accused of referring to Kim’s famous curvy bum as a ‘fat ass’. Us Weekly also reports that the 26-year-old was brutal with his comments towards his new wife and insulted her constantly.  A source told the magazine: ‘He belittled her in front of people. He’d call her stupid. It was truly sickening. He tried to control Kim by bringing her down…He would say truly terrible things. One time, he said she had no talent and her fame wouldn’t last.’
 
It has also been alleged that Kris is planning to sue Kim for $10million over his role in the upcoming Kim and Kourtney take New York series. According to Life&Style magazine: ‘He’s claiming his role on Kourtney & Kim Take New York is bigger than he was told, and that’s why he wants more money. But Kris is also suing because he’s really worried about how badly he’s going to be portrayed on the series.’
 
In the trailer for the upcoming series viewers see a furious Kim blasting Kris for his partying ways and asking why she found out he wasn’t even in the country through Twitter. Kim’s sister Kourtney is seen offering her distraught sister relationship advice suggesting the marriage was over before it ever really began. 
 
Kim announced she was filing for divorce on October 31, just 72 days after their lavish wedding. 
Charlize Theron talks about Stuart Townsend split
Charlize Theron talks about Stuart Townsend split

Charlize Theron is enjoying life following her split from longtime boyfriend Stuart Townsend, insisting the break-up has helped to reinvigorate her acting career. The Monster actress separated with Stuart in January 2010 after nine years together. Charlize has since threw herself into filming upcoming movie Young Adult.

Charlize, 36, credits the love split with giving her a renewed lease of life and passion for her craft. She tells Vogue magazine, “I really, really missed it (acting). Like around week three (of the shoot), I had this horrible, sappy moment where I got a little overwhelmed. It was just a really great f**king experience. I’d gotten out of a relationship and I was in this really floaty place. My feet weren’t touching the ground. I just kind of turned to (director Jason Reitman) and was like, ‘I feel like me again.’”
 
Charlize admits she worked hard to try and save her failing romance because she’s not used to being alone. She says, “It was sinking, and I had to give it a fight. I really wanted to try and make it work. That was the priority. I wouldn’t do it any different way… I’ve never been single. This is the first time in my life. From the time I was 19, I’ve been in relationships, literally gone from one to the other within a month.” However, the South African beauty has learned to embrace her single status: “It’s (being single) been good for me. I’m a creature who’s really found her comfort zone in relationships.”
