Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, who filed for divorce after six years of marriage last week, have released a joint statement about their split through their respective reps.
“We are committed to working together as parents to accomplishing what is in our daughter Suri’s best interests,” the couple said in the statement.
“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 otherâ€™s roles as parents.”
Cruise, 50, and Holmes, 33, are parents to a six-year-old daughter, Suri. Holmes, who is currently in NYC, reportedly asked for sole legal custody of her daughter in the divorce papers. Cruise, who is in Beverly Hills, has not counter-filed divorce papers of his own.
