Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have announced that they plan to file for divorce, ending their five-year marriage.

TomKat, as they were often referred to, have been the centre of constant media attention, particularly during a whirlwind courtship that included Cruise’s now-infamous Oprah appearance. The couple has a 6-year-old daughter, Suri, whose antics and wardrobe draw weekly tabloid chatter.

It’s notable that Holmes did not attend any of her soon-to-be-ex’s premieres for his latest movie, Rock of Ages–their last public appearance as a couple was in February at the Vanity Fair Oscar bash. The actress has been spotted out and about in New York City with Suri this week, still sporting her wedding ring.
