29 June: Hollywood's most famous couple, TomKat, divorces after five years of marriage

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes's public image was as one of Hollywood's A-list couples. Their relationship, however, was always accompanied by this perception that Tom was a controlling figure. The gossip and rumours began after their quick courtship and bizarre public behaviour – particularly after Tom's couch-jumping on Oprah. People started to ask questions. Katie was said to have dived head-long into Scientology; it was reported that she was cutting off old friends and acquaintances and had Tom's security people around her 24/7.

I've followed the stories about Scientology, including the recent Vanity Fair report in which a lot of people were interviewed about Tom's courtship process, trying to find a bride. They made it sound like the relationship was very orchestrated, and I wouldn't be surprised if that was true.

The news of Katie leaving Tom caught everyone by surprise, including, apparently, Cruise himself. It was shocking, especially after details emerged about how she had planned this in secret with her father and was very sleuth about extracting herself from the marriage. I thought Katie would be stuck in that relationship for a long time, so I'm impressed she extracted herself. I'm on her side.
