Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes: Officially Divorced

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are officially divorced, according to court documents filed in New York City that show the case was closed on Monday (August 20).

The 33-year-old actress filed for divorce from the 50-year-old actor back in June and they quickly reached a settlement just two weeks later.

While Katie has had primary custody of their daughter Suri since their separation, Tom has been spending plenty of time with his little girl. He even took her on a trip to Disney World recently!

Katie will soon make her return to Broadway in the new play Dead Accounts.

    the reason that this was “fast”, it’s because they filled for divorce a while back before june.

    does this mean Katie now has enough money to replace her dirty beige boots. I sure hope so. Oh yeah, I forgot, she has plenty money to buy a zillion boots, she just does not have any taste. Designer my A*SS!

    Pat Says:

    maybe that’s one of the reasons he was looking said in the back of the limo, besides losing his director friend. No one can replace the original director of Top Gun.

    Kaia Says:

    It may surprise some that very Tom is heartbroken by this whole thing. I hear he was really bummed on his birthday and recently, especially with the lost of his friend. I hope he is not depressed. It’s a lot to deal with in such proximity. I wish him well. He looks like a kind person.

    Dang! Says:

    That is one that can go down in HW record books as the fastest high profile celebrity divorce. Honestly, I truly believe the seperation & divorce has been in process for a while before going public. If not, then Katie definiely had some dirt for this to be completed in less than 90 days.

    lala Says:

    I get the sense that divorce was not a big deal for Katie, as if it was always in the cards for her. Oh well. Good luck to her. Hopefully she does not have those beige boots on her next Justjared photo where she is trying to plug herself as a serious designer.

    Julie Says:

    Good luck Tom he never was miserable! He was happy to be free of the
    Ol ball and chain ! Meaning Suri and Katie! The first thing Katie does after the divorce is a play not a famous movie! Loser woman she is the
    Sad one who has to find cheap things to do with Suri! Tom is happy and
    Successful making movies…why do people think that he is sad and has to get over it! When in fact he never was sad! Grow up people be his divorce from Nicole was just as fast!

    How is that possible when there is a mandatory 6-12 month after filing, wait period in NY(uncontested or not). Does money exempt you from state law?

    Caren Says:

    Divorce is hard, it’s hard on you emotionally and physically. The worst thing is people can hurt very deeply and quietly. When something really bad happens, some people say well, “I had no idea, he or she looked normal and okay or was just recently getting better.”

  45. 45
    Hmmm.... Says:

    I wish him them well. What I do not wish well are those beige boots and that awful, overly pricey clothing line.

    Tom is a good looking guy.

  46. 46
    Bill Says:

    I do not believe Katie has anything “on” Tom. It’s pretty simple. Tom is not one for drama, he is not one to drag a divorce for the sake of coming out on top. There’s more to life than “winning” a court case or trying to be “right”. They have a daughter. I think they did the best thing by settling.

    Suri was paramount. There’s also nothing amusing about a parent’ child moving to another state suddenly.

  47. 47
    Cara Says:

    @Bill: I agree that parents should keep things civil especially when children are involved. I know from experience. In my case, I was moved suddenly to another country with no heads-up as a child. I was on a plane one minute and in another country for good the next.

    Tom Cruise is a good looking man, but boy, is he a kook re scientology. No one should believe they know best for everyone in every situation. Ideologue.

    It’s smells very CO$ on here.

    James Says:

    It would have taken a miracle for Tom to get full custody. It’s almost unheard of for a man to get full custody in NYC, not to mention for a judge to grant full custody to a person not residing in NYC–not happening.

    Sometimes the dads get the short end of the stick even when they are good parents. Luckily for Tom, he has tons of alone, meaningful, quality time with Suri. He can see her whenever he wants essentially and can take her places too.

  54. 54
    annabelle Says:

    @James: Katie knew exactly what she doing by filing for divorce in NYC. Her father is a lawyer.
    Too bad her dad is not a designer, perhaps then he could help rid of those beige boots.

    Katie is smart

    Olive Says:

    I think the divorce was settled before they even got married. The only thing that needed to be settled was custody of Suri and Katie blindsided Tom on that so he settled. Tom is not a man who wastes time with Ex-wives. He walks away fast and doesn’t look back. I’m not surprised the marriage ended fast.

    dabu Says:

    Well someone must have greased some palms!

  58. 58
    bella Says:

    Olive, good point. I too believe the iron-clad pre-nup had specific things in place in a worst case scenario. I think people like to believe some “secrets” led to a speedy divorce, but having worked in a private family/divorce practice, I do not believe that. Suri is the only component that needed sorting out.

  59. 59
    dani Says:

    You know Bill when Tom divorced Nicole he sic’d PI Anthony Pellicano on her. He tapped her phones, had her followed and spied on as Tom tried to find something on her to expedite the divorce. This is in court papers as Pellicano is now in jail for violating federal law with his wiretapping activities. Tom also refused to go to counseling. When she miscarried he didn’t visit. She saved DNA from the baby to prove he was the father in case he took her to court and said it wasn’t his. This is also in court papers (Smoking Gun). He held a huge party to celebrate their love in Dec. then kicked her to the curb in Feb. I believe.
    These are not the actions of a nice guy.

    Gooood! Their relationship was weird from day 1, the only good thing about them is their daughter.
    he is a nice guy (but crazy), and she was sweet pre-tom i love all of her interviews pre tom, before that it was weird.
    i dont think she is a famewhore, in my opinion the media are the ones that are making this circus, and the reason paparazzi follow her is because of the divorce, because is the HOT TOPIC.

  64. 64
    Bill Says:

    Katie was bland before Tom. Her PR people can say and whatever they want but Katie was not some hot actress that every producer was trying to get booked. If anything, Katie was trying to find herself after Dawson’s Creek and certainly was not in hot demand.

    sarah Says:

    As long as those beliefs don’t cause harm and they do, to non-celebrity scientologists. The Scientology drug rehab program in Oklahoma has had three deaths since October and they are in the process of shutting down! And the SeaOrg forces children to work seven days a week with no formal education. This isn’t about beliefs. THIS IS ABOUT A CULT THAT TOM CRUISE REFUSES TO LEAVE. Tom is far from good in my book. He’s caused severe harm to his family by exposing all of them to Scientology. It’s cost him two marriages and scientologists are still being abused in California in a place called “The Hole”. His stupidity is hurting others. He’s disgusting!

    marlowe Says:

    Looks like Tom’s Scientology team has hit this board. Listen up, Katie is lucky to get out. Tom is a hot mess. And Scientology is to blame. All these oh, he looks good comments are ridiculous. The Sci team is in effect!

    You didn’t “hear” it Kaia. . .his gardener is not your milkman’s man brother. You read it in one of the tabs and we all know you can’t trust them as far as you can throw them.

    ann Says:

    Katie’s role on Dawson’s Creek helped her because she was known as “sweet girl with the wandering eyes” she used that angle to her advantage, but she was never a big deal in Hollywood. Don’t believe the hype. If anything she looked happily clueless… most of the time.

    Haven Says:

    Some people do not have anything positive to say. I’ve even seen people make negative comments to other people giving condolences to someone who has recently died. It’s very sad. I hope family members, especially the young ones do not go online to read stuff.

    Good to know that this is behind them. Divorce has personally been very hard on my friends. It shakes up everything, and some times people are innocent victims.

    Divorce is very sad.

    krix Says:

    “Last week Wednesday, removal trucks were spotted at the Bel Air mansion that Tom and Katie shared when they were married. The movers were reportedly taking her belongings and moving them to an undisclosed storage unit.”

    ‘His way of dealing with this is to throw himself into his work, but as a result he’s not looking after himself, and he risks cutting himself off from people who care about him and want to make sure he’s OK.’

    Tom is a very talented actor, but I believe (IMHO) that this divorce has really thrown him.

    Tom hopefully will bounce back. It’s very much like him to throw himself into his work feverishly when he is down. Fathers are parents and love their children too. Too often people forget that.

    Good. End this chapter of their lives. Both can move on to their separate worlds along with their respective fans.

  79. 79

    @Todd: I agree. that’s why some girls have serious daddy issues. It’s important to have both parents in a child’s life. That’s why people should not play with marriage and pregnancy.

    It is kown fact Suri is not his child. He should cut all ties with Katie and her *******. Move on and find better woman for a wife. I like Nicole, she was beautiful, honest and caring wife/mother. Katie is a con artist, a gold digger and no one likes those types of people.

  83. 83
    Maria Says:

    This is horrible news for me, I love both of them and they look perfect with each other, I am to sad to know about them, this is not good news for me,
    They will find out soon that they take wrong decision… All the best both of them, Lot of love for both of them…

    Lol. Something very strange…A divorce in one month? Wow..That is pretty fast. Anyway… at least he knows how it was for Nicole. She dumbed her like a pair of old shoes after 11 years together and two little children. I laugh at him. He lost two women he loved for Scientology…Poor dumb.

    Not a chance they are actually legally divorced in the State of New York. The judge may have approved the settlement, but the actual divorce would take another 6 to 12 months to finalize. Even Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are subject to the law. As an attorney practicing in the City of New York, this is an indisputable fact that can be easily proven using google.

    Either the media is mistaking the fact that the agreement was approved with the divorce being finalized OR TC and KH were never legally married. They didn’t circumvent the law.

  93. 93
    Aspen Says:

    Katie is a con, who would have thought she would plan a divorce while still sleeping with her husband with pretense all was okay. Who would ever want to be her next victim of a husband will be a nightmare. Plus, that Suri is a spoiled child created monster that her mother made her out to be. The child is elementary school age and still carried around the hip, imagine all the nasty insults the child will get from others. No one to blame but the mother. The mother thinks that spoiling the only child is okay but in reality the mother is creating a monster. That child needs grounded rules, I hope the real father steps in and take the child. Poor Tom, thinking Suri was his own biological child, heartbreaking to be cheated!

  94. 94
    dogpie Says:

    Stop hating on Katie. She read the “Tom” script over 5 years ago and made a smart financial decision…live life with Tom “short-term” (no pun intended) and rake in the cash. Dumb decision…heck no!

    Scientology and all the other BS have nothing to do with this …just an “old fashion”business deal. Kudos, I guess, to the attorneys responsible for the original contract and kudos to Katie for keeping up the pretense of marital bliss for 5 years.
    Maybe we, the ignorant public, will assist financially with his next box office hit!

    Katie is exploiting Suri. Sad.
    Tom is just letting her make an ass of herself with the media parading Suri around.
