Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes officially divorced
Actors Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are officially divorced.
The Rock of Ages actor and former Dawson's Creek star’s five-year marriage came to an end this week after a New York judge signed off on the final judgement, according to legal papers obtained by E! News.
The news comes less than two months after Holmes officially filed for divorce, in a move that left Cruise "blindsided".
The former couple entered negotiations almost straight away and last month a settlement was agreed with Holmes being given primary custody of their six-year-old daughter, Suri, and Cruise getting extensive visitation rights.
The pair married in a lavish ceremony in Italy in November 2006 after meeting in April 2005.
Daughter Suri was born in April 2006 and played a star role in their nuptials.
Holmes and Suri will be living in New York while Cruise will split his time between there and Los Angeles.
The 50-year-old star was previously married to Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman.
Cruise and Kidman have two children, Isabella, 19, and 17-year-old Connor, based in Beverly Hills.
