Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce.
After nearly six years of marriage, a lawyer for Holmes said Friday that the pair are calling it quits.
"This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family," attorney Jonathan Wolfe said in a statement to People, which broke the story. "Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest."
The couple had not yet filed papers with the L.A. Superior Court, officials told L.A. Now on Friday. Wolfe's office confirmed the news to L.A. Now.
The Ministry would be remiss if we didn't give TomKat a "well played" for burning off this bombshell on the Friday before a major national holiday, a tactic deployed last year by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver.
