Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise divorcing

What went so wrong so quickly?
Just days ago, Tom Cruise was as exuberant as ever about his love for Katie Holmes, telling PEOPLE that his perfect day is “the time with Kate.”
Sadly, those days appear to be over.
On Thursday, five days before Cruise’s 50th birthday, Holmes (33) filed divorce papers in New York, leaving Cruise “deeply saddened” – and their fans searching for answers.
Although the couple have faced breakup rumors ever since their whirlwind romance led to an engagement, baby and then marriage, the timing and circumstances of the breakup still came as a shock – and raised the question of whether the actor was taken by surprise.
Cruise confirmed that it was Holmes who filed papers (not him) and the brief statement from his rep spoke of the star needing privacy to “work this out.”
