Gone are the days of couch-jumping and effusive pronunciations of love.
Katie Holmes filed for divorce from Tom Cruise in New York on June 29 after five years of marriage. She has requested full legal custody of their 6-year-old daughter, Suri, in her filing, which reportedly “blindsided” Tom. A rep for the 49-year-old actor, who’s currently filming the movie Oblivion in Iceland (eerily appropriate name, no?), released a statement describing Tom as “deeply saddened.”
Things weren’t always so grim between the two, as evidenced by this photo of them taken back on June 6, 2005, when they’d been together for only a couple months. Katie converted to Scientology seven days later, and they were engaged three days after that. Katie was preggers by the end of the summer, and the couple tied the knot in an elegant, star-studded wedding in Italy on November 18, 2006 — baby daughter in tow.
However, hints at deeper issues within the marriage surfaced over the years, such as rumors of Tom being too controlling and an obvious disparity in the success of their movie careers.
However, Tom had nothing but complimentary things to say about his wife in the June 2012 issue of Playboy. "She is an extraordinary person, and if you spent five minutes with her, you'd see it,” he gushed. “[...] She’s funny and charming, and when she walks into the room, I just feel better. I’m a romantic. I like doing things like creating romantic dinners, and she enjoys that. I don’t know what to say — I’m just happy, and I have been since the moment I met her. What we have is very special.”
But as of today, their power couple reign is over. Let’s pour one out for TomKat.
