"Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. . . Please allow them their privacy." (Holmes' attorney said in an earlier statement: "Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest. This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family."
