The world was shocked when Tom announced he was leaving Nicole in 2001, six weeks after celebrating their 10-year wedding anniversary. In an infamous People magazine story printed after their split, Tom cryptically told a source: “Nic knows exactly why we are getting the divorce.”
The problem? Privately and publicly, Nicole -- who tragically miscarried their baby just a month after the breakup -- made clear she had no idea why Tom had given up on their marriage. “It took me a very long time to heal," Kidman told DuJour magazine in 2012. "It was a shock to my system.”
Cruise has never revisited the reasons behind their split, but speculation has touched on everything from rumors Nicole cheated on Tom (which her camp steadfastly denied) to a belief that Tom’s devotion to Scientology drove him away from Nicole, who is Catholic.
