Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce after five years of marriage, Cruise's representative has confirmed to TODAY.com.

"Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children," said a statement from Cruise's rep on Friday. "Please allow them their privacy."

"This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family," Holmes's attorney Jonathan Wolfe told People magazine. "Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest."

Daughter Suri is 6. Cruise, 49, and Holmes, 33, wed in the 15th-century Odescalchi Castle outside of Rome in 2006. He had proposed at the Eiffel Tower.

Cruise drew media headlines in May 2005 when he declared his love for Holmes and famously jumped on a couch on the set of "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

Early in their courtship, Holmes revealed that Cruise was her first celebrity crush, and she started pining away for him in 1983 when she was four years old and saw him in “Risky Business."

Cruise was married twice before, to actresses Nicole Kidman and Mimi Rogers. It was Holmes' first marriage.

Cruise will turn 50 on July 3.
