Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are divorcing after five years of marriage. The Rock of Ages star, 49, and 33-year-old actress have daughter Suri, six.

"This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family," Holmes's lawyer Jonathan Wolfe said in a statement to People magazine. "Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest." It is not known if divorce papers have yet been filed in court. Tom — who has been married twice before to Nicole Kidman, with whom he has two children, and Mimi Rogers — wed the former Dawson's Creek actress in an Italian castle in November 2006.

He is currently in Iceland filming new movie Oblivion while Katie is in New York with their daughter. Tom gave no hint of trouble in a gushing interview about his wife just last month. He said he loved her "creativity" and claiming their relationship was "very special". He told People magazine: "She is an extraordinary person, and if you spent five minutes with her, you'd see it. Everything she does, she does with this beautiful creativity. She has a voice and warmth as an artist, as a mother. 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."

Adele has announced yesterday that she is pregnant with her first child with boyfriend Simon Konecki. The singer, 24, revealed the news on her website to her fans, writing: "I'm delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we're over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx".

The Someone Like You singer has been dating the 36-year-old since last summer, and went public with the relationship in January. Adele told People magazine recently that she "really wants to be a mum", adding that it is her goal to have three sons by the time she is 30. "I better start getting on with it!" she said

Shortly after her sweep of the Grammys back in February, the singer also told US Vogue magazine that she was taking a break for four or five years to concentrate on her relationship.

"If I am constantly working, my relationships fail," she said at the time. "So at least now I can have enough time to write a happy record. And be in love and be happy. And then I don't know what I'll do. Get married. Have some kids. Plant a nice vegetable patch."

It seems that her planned schedule has not exactly occurred in that order, as rumours were first sparked when Adele turned up to the Ivor Novello awards two months ago wearing a smock-stye dress that concealed her figure. In February Adele purchased a £7-million mansion in Sussex for the couple to live in.

Adele, who underwent throat surgery to repair damage to her vocal chords in November, gushed about her man to Vogue, revealing: "He's wonderful. And he's proud of me, but he don't care about what I do or what other people think. He looks after me. I don't think I would have gotten through the recovery for my surgery if it hadn't been for him."

She also ticked off what makes her good in a relationship: "I am attentive. I will do anything for my man. I am a good cook. I'm funny. Always want to have sex -- Well, most girls don't! Everyone in our lives separately and together wish us nothing but the best, and vice versa. These are the facts." Adele previous dated part-time DJ Ned Biggs, who is believed to have been the source of some of her most heartbreaking hits. Their relationship is thought to have lasted several months, several years ago.
