Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes Reach Divorce Settlement

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have reached a settlement in their divorce less than two weeks after the couple announced their separation.

“The case has been settled and the agreement has been signed. We are thrilled for Katie and her family and are excited to watch as she embarks on the next chapter of her life,” Katie‘s lawyer Jonathan Wolfe told People in a statement.

“We thank Tom’s counsel for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution,” he added.

Earlier today, Katie and Tom released a joint statement regarding their 6-year-old daughter Suri.

whew! that was fast!! katie must have really had a lot of nasty stuff on him and scientology.

# 2

Already? Damn I bought way too much popcorn :/

# 3

hahahaha. Go Katie!

# 4

Damn, that was quick! Nice clean cut. I like it!

@lou:

I would love to have been a fly on the wall to see that ego of his deflated. The little prick. There is something dark and forboding about him. He gives me the creeps!

# 6

Who has Suri’s custody? Is it shared? I hope it is. She needs to relax from paparazzi from time to time.

# 7

They didn’t give any details. so don’t pat Katie on the back until you know some details which it doesn’t look like they will be releasing. sounds like both of their religions must be respected/accepted by the other.

# 8

Hopefully things will calm down and their daughter will have some peace in her life.

@wonder: Whether its shared or not she will be followed by paps for the rest of her life.

@Liz: I don’t think so. It’s a matter of trends

someone is hiding something!

She has some serious DIRT if it got resolved that quickly…

Someone has serious dirt alright … and trust it is not Tom Cruise. If Tom was soooooo terrible — there would be little to no budging. Katie thinks she is sleek, but she is quite see-through. Do not be fooled about her talk about being “from Ohio, a small town.. blah, blah, blah.” These soft spoken types are the worst and most vindictive.

good now we can focus on johnny and vanessa again

Sure it isn’t its the CO$ that wants this to go away if Katie had real dirt on her it includes Tom too

So she is not a scieno anymore? i remember when he was interviewed by Diane Sawyer short after Katie getting pregnant, he told “We’re just scientologists”, he was saying that you could “combine” your beliefs with his cult.
Guess Katie got fed up. I do not blame her. Fanatics are the worst types.

to lou

yes, Katie has lots of stuff on Scientology but i would bet that Tom’s lawyers found equally as damning stuff on Katie. it’s the only thing that makes sense.

i doubt this settlement would have happened so fast if Katie had not backed down on her demand for sole legal custody. and, of course, agreeing to allow Tom to see Suri whenever he wants.

I find that hard to believe because a control freak like Tom doesn’t concede to this so easily

@Go figure:

Are you glib? Tom dictated Katie’s every move and how many children they will have, or she will have other cult members for him.

You got it @ 07/09/2012 at 1:51 pm

@theresa: Precisely, Theresa. A mom will always be a mom first. If Tom was so awful, Katie would not have conceded. In fact, in the court of public opinion, Katie had an advantage because of the Scientology fume surrounding Tom. Clearly, Katie backed down. If people used their reasoning or critical thinking skills — they would arrive at this logical end.

A mom who is concerned for her child’s well being would stay the course and fight it out. Katie’s safety was never an issue to begin with. It’s just that simple. Katie has some clouds in her backyard. These soft spoken, seemingly gentle types are indeed the worst types because they attack sans warning.

Maybe she didn’t contest the prenup in exchange for Suri

TomKat’s story should be awarded the best script ever because it’s very realistic. I mean com’on this marriage was nothing but a contract from the very beginning and now is the time to end it. Tom signed Katie to be his wife to display a public image of a loving family man. Katie, on the other hand, accepted the offer to further her career. This divorce is exactly the way they’ve planned from the very beginning. The divorce was well-though of and well-planned to put Katie in a positive light. I mean look at the sympathy that Katie gets from the public now, it will help her get more work because people will no longer be critical of her. True enough, she’s got 2 movies lining up and a fashion show. Work is finally starting coming in and the public will now be more accommodating to her because she is now known as the woman who fought scientology and succeed at protecting her child from the cult. How strong and inspiring? And as for Tom, well he is back in the game and is named this year’s highest paid actor. Well done! And no need to worry about Tom Cruise after this divorce, he always finds a way to restore his image and career. The only victim here really is Suri because she is just a child who knows nothing about her parents’ selfish agenda. Let’s just hope once their so-called divorce is final, the media will lose interest of these 2 famewhores so that they will both fade to oblivion.

Tom would never agree to looking this bad. Otherwise you might have had a point.

Good they spared us all the drama. Now we have to deal with the reality show called “Find a Wife for Tom Cruise”. Sort of like The Bachelor.
