After five years of marriage, Hollywood power-couple Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise have issued a statement confirming that they’re splitting up and will be getting a divorce.

According to People magazine, Katie’s lawyer Jonathan Wolfe has said: "This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family."

He added, "Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest." 

It is not yet known why the couple have decided to separate although sources say that their marriage had been in trouble for a while.

Cruise's representative Amanda Lunberg said: "Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children.

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

Tom hit the headlines earlier today following bizarre claims that he’s been following a skin care regime based on bird poo.

The pair’s marriage was dogged by controversy after the couple married in an Italian castle in 2006.

As well as being Dad to four year old Suri, Tom has two children from his previous marriage to Nicole Kidman.
