It is the end of a 3rd marriage for Cruise with all previous wives also being actresses and all (less surprisingly) being taller than him. For the record first wife Mimi Rogers is 5ft 8in, second wife Nicole is 5ft 11in and Katie Holmes is 5ft 9in. Cruise is 5ft 7in.
Cruise and Holmes married in November 2006 in a lavish ceremony at Castello Orsini-Odescachi an Italian castle in the Rome area with the day costing the couple an estimated $3,5m. They have a 6-year old daughter, Suri Cruise, who has already shown a big interest in wearing designer clothes.
It is not a great shock to many celebrity watchers as despite all of their public appearances they have not be seen together as a couple since February.
It seems that Katie is the one who has filed for divorce with her attorney Jonathan Wolfe saying: “This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family. Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”
A spokesman for Cruise told the BBC: “Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy.”
Although we know that Katie is the one filing for divorce from Scientologist Cruise we do not know what the circumstances are and if anyone else is involved.
Although it is 49-year old Cruise’s 3rd marriage it is 33-year old Katie’s 1st.
In a blog on her own website Adele today said: “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 couple have been together since last summer and Konecki is the chief executive of Brighton-based charity Drop4Drop, which aims to help alleviate the global water crisis.
There was already a big clue that the singer was more than serious on her new man as she firstly rented a 10-bedroom luxury home in the Sussex countryside before deciding it was possibly haunted and buying a luxury home even nearer Konecki on the seafront near Brighton.
She can lay claim to last year’s most successful album with her release 21 which was the only recent album to make it into this May’s HMV list of the Top British Albums of the past 60 years. She has also been one of the few British acts in recent years to have really cracked the US. At the Grammy Awards in February she received 6 Awards which equalled the record for a solo female artist which was previously held by Beyonce.
After being a triumphant few months for her career with Billboard Magazine naming her the artist of the year for 2011 and Time magazine naming her one of the most influential people in the world, it is great to see that Adele is also achieving her dreams in her personal life as well.
