Tom Cruise’s high-profile marriage to Katie Holmes is officially over, just a month and a half after the couple separated. A New York judge signed off on the final judgement yesterday, according to legal papers seen by E! News. Holmes sensationally lodged the legal papers to end her five-year marriage in June, despite the couple’s prior portrayal of themselves as the perfect Hollywood family.
The 33-year-old cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ for the split and requested sole legal custody and ‘primary residential custody’ of the couple’s six-year-old daughter, Suri. The two released a joint statement last month, saying: ‘We are committed to working together as parents to accomplish what is in our daughter Suri’s best interests. ‘We want to keep matters affecting our family private and express our respect for each other’s commitment to each of our respective beliefs and support each other’s roles as parents.’
