After only just around 6 years Katie Holmes files for divorce from Tom Cruise and asks for full custody of daughter Suri.
I usually do not report on this sort of thing, but I am truly shocked and sad for all concerned.
Here is the best most complete story I found so far from Rueters Press

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are seeking a divorce after almost six years of marriage.
It looks like there won’t be a happy ending for TomKat and it looks like Holmes is the one who wants out. She filed for divorce on Thursday, June 28. The couple has quite a few assets to split, including a huge house in Beverly Hills, and they both have sizable incomes from their acting careers.
Not only that, they’ll have to figure out how to share their 6-year-old daughter Suri Cruise.
The couple lives in Beverly Hills so you would expect California law to be applied to the separation of assets. That said, it will depend on where the divorce case is litigated. Subsequent news reports today have stated that Holmes may have filed anonymously in New York, Reuters reports. Cruise recently showed up alone to premieres for his new musical film, “Rock of Ages.”
