Jennifer Lopez says that ''nobody wins'' in Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' divorce settlement.

The 'American Idol' panelist spoke about the famous couple's split last month, after five years of marriage, and admitted she was sad for her friends.

She said: ''I heard about it when I was in South America and I was stunned.''

Jennifer, whose father is a Scientologist like Tom, announced her split from estranged husband Marc Anthony last year.

She told 'Entertainment Tonight': ''I'm sad for them. They're both really lovely people, and just like Marc and I, it's not what you want to happen. You fight and you try until you realize you can't anymore.''

Katie is keeping primary custody of their six-year-old daughter Suri Cruise and Tom will have visitation.

However singer-and-actress Jennifer believes that it's about more than just their biological daughter together.

She continued: ''You know I just wish them, you know, peace in their decision. And really for Suri and their other children as well, because you become such a family, it's not just Suri, it's Connor and Isabella and everybody, you know, you all become a family.

''And when that breaks apart, nobody wins; everybody's heartbroken in some way. And I just wish them peace.''
