There's a good chance you bet it wouldn't last; hopefully you placed your money on the five-year mark. People exclusively reports that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are calling it quits. And it sounds like the news is indeed true, as People has a statement from Holmes' lawyer: "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."

TMZ was, unsurprisingly, quick to chime in. It verifies that Holmes filed divorce papers yesterday in New York. In them: She cited irreconcilable differences, requested sole legal and primary residential custody, and wants a "suitable amount" of child support. Its take-them-with-a-grain-of-salt scoops beyond the docs: Sources say Tom was "blindsided" and there is some "nastiness" between the pair. It was Holmes' first marriage, and Cruise's third; daughter Suri is 6. (More Tom Cruise stories.)
