Tom Cruise 'Deeply Saddened' By Katie Holmes Filing For Divorce

Tom Cruise 'Deeply Saddened' By Katie Holmes Filing For Divorce

Tom Cruise's representative has released a statement in response to tonight's news that he is to divorce Katie Holmes.

The quote from his spokesperson Amanda Lunberg reveals that it was Katie who brought on the split.

"Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children," she said.

"Please allow them their privacy to work this out."

Earlier tonight we passed on word from US sources saying that Katie will demand full custody of 6-year-old daughter Suri.

She has been snapped with the toddler on several occasions lately, whilst Tom has not been publicly seen with either of them since the Vanity Fair Oscars Party in February.

With so many splits in Hollywood lately, is anyone safe?
