So much for couch-jumping. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting divorced, according to an exclusive report from People mag.

"This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family," Holmes's attorney Jonathan Wolfe told People. "Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest."

Cruise's rep also released a statement: "Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy to work this out."

The celeb uber-couple have been married since 2006, after a whirlwind romance that put a hitch in the 49-year-old's career because of Cruise's supposed craziness for Holmes. Exhibit: The below video in which Cruise freaked out the American populace by being super weird on Oprah. This is Holmes' first marriage, and the third for Cruise, after Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman. The two have a daughter, 6-year-old Suri.

Say it ain't so! We really thought this couple was going to make it. What do you think did it for the couple? Mushy box office for Cruise's recent flick, "Rock of Ages"? Scientology? Reports that Cruise isn't so into women? The world waits with bated breath until Katie releases her tell-all.

When Tom and Katie first got married, we remember a blind item floating around the gossip-sphere saying that an anonymous starlet signed a five-year marriage contract with an anonymous superstar, with provisions for a child. This blind item, foreshadowing the end of the contract, popped up on our radars recently, as well. The time works. Could the contact have been true all along?
