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.
