Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes

Talks Underway

Tom Cruise
and Katie Holmes have called a temporary truce while their lawyers try to negotiate a full divorce settlement ... TMZ has learned.

Sources very familiar with the situation tell us ... there are NO immediate plans for either side to go to court. There will be no court hearing Monday, Tuesday or in the foreseeable future, unless the negotiations fall apart.

Sources tell us the lawyers are negotiating child custody, visitation, child support and a property settlement.

We're also told the whole settlement could be ratified in New York if all goes well.  In other words, there may not be a move by Tom's camp to transfer the case to California, where judges are more likely to award joint custody.

One source described the emotional state of the negotiations as "calm."

Katie was spotted this morning in NYC, heading into her lawyer's office.

Where did this picture of Tom come from? He looks like a scarecrow.

With regard to the story, methinks he'd BETTER see this one through calmly, or the young lady will blow his cover entirely.

The lawyers will see to it that negotiations fall apart so they can keep the meters running. Katie looks like Kris Jenner in that photo, ugh.

Katie told tom..."I'm leaving you and taking Suri...are we CLEAR?"

Sorry, a little Scientology humor there...hehe.

"One source described the emotional state of the negotiations as "calm.""......Mmmmmm a little too calm if you ask me. I can't believe Tom is going along with this so peacefully. Katie must have some juicy dirt on him and threaten to tell the media if he tried to get sole custody of Suri or this is the calm before the storm.

He rarely saw Suri, so I'm sure he's actually relieved that Katie wants sole custody. As for money, he'll throw a mind-numbing amount her way in exchange for her silence. Odds are good that within a couple of months we'll be seeing Tom's "new" love in public with him. Balls before brains, Tom.

Sounds like maybe Miscavige told Tom to "Give her what she wants and make this go away." because of all the negative PR the divorce situation is generating for $cientology

It's like the scene in Top Gun:

You've lost that loving feeling, oh that loving feeling
You've lost that loving feeling, now it's gone, gone, gone

perhaps this would be a good time for Tom to reflect on the last 20 years of his life..and reprioritise...he who dies with the most toys does not win.

IMO, Tom will settle this divorce fast and quietly in order to protect his church from the media. I would think his church is having a fit from the articles printed about them in the news.

Things will be calm until Tom has a freak-out about his daughter. Katie isn't Nicole Kidman (who basically gave up the adopted children to Tom).

This is not a shock. He must have a whole lot of stuff to hide or he and his cult would not have caved so quickly.
And here I thought that the cult and Mighty Mouth were sue happy. HMMMMMM.

Looks like we're going to be deprived of juicy tidbits coming out of a divorce hearing. Or are the settlement talks a ploy to buy time so Ton's cult legal team can contrive legal strategy so Tom gets full custody? Wouldn't put it past Tom's team planting false evidence or other evil schemes against Katie.

Katie don't let your guard down. Watch your step & watch your back,

Next time Tom, marry someone from your cult.

I bet the cult head cheeses tired of being exposed in the media and probably told Tom to jump and he said, how high? So he is settling?

I bet the Scientology cult put the heat on him, for they do not like nor want any negative press exposing the evil they are behind doing to those they brainwashed into that cult.

I wish that entire cult could be investigated for the ex-scientologist stories of abuse and people going missing, that son who ended up dead after his mother went to the media showing support for Katie and sharing some things about her experience with that cult, then suddenly her son is dead from a fever and she is not allowed to see his body?

That cult is Satan's playground.

Next week's Dateline will be interesting to watch regarding Tom and Katie's divorce and the Scientology crap. The pre-view looked interesting. More media sources should expose and put out the concerned stories of abuse and people missing, deaths, children, etc. regarding this cult.
