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.

Katie Holmes opened up a big can of worms for the scientology cult. They are getting every bad press and media they don't want.


Holmes now knows enough about scientology to take her daughter and run, this cult scares the crap out of her and she want's no part of it for her daughter.


Scientology is the major factor and their spin and damage control isn't working and they know it.


Holmes doesn't 4 bodyguards because of the paps.

Katie got him before he got her he was going to eventually divorce her but she was smarter than Nicole Kidman she took the upper hand..Where is Nicole Kidmans children?With Tom.. Ok we Suri in pics etc...Why do we hardly ever see his other kids?Its because he's got them tied up into the scientology stuff they were in boarding schools somewhere near California.. Katie didn't want the same for Suri.I mean if he did that to his other kids why wouldnt he do the same to this child?

Personally...I still don't buy it that Katie gave birth to Suri in 2006...Too much evidence to the contrary, and too much obvious damage control on their/the Scientologists part to cover up her fake pregnancy. Katie isn't that naive and I think she agreed to go along with the PR sh*t to promote 'TomKat' & her career. But I think she got in over her head when she realized how freaky those Scientologists are...Reminds me of Rosemary's Baby or Eyes Wide Shut. Just too many lies n cover-ups...Recall Katie's questionable run in the NY Marathon a few years ago? Everyone who runs long distance races who looked at the evidence & commented in runners forums agreed all indications say she did not run in the marathon. But entered the race near the finish line. Who knows why they're getting divorced, but I think they both got sh*t on each other and will try to split with as little fanfare as possible. Don't think it's gonna happen! Personally?...I want to see all the skeletons fall out, the sh*t to hit the fan, and some major mud-slinging. Lol!

Why can't Tom-foolery at least date a woman who is already a scientologist? This is the third time he's had a breakup over this damn cult (Nicole, Penelope and Katie, Mimi introduced him to it). Too bad Scientology is so homophobic, since we all know who Tom's true love forever is - David Miscavige!

Tom and scientology must have figured out that attacking her is blowing up in their faces. Yahoo has a story about them trying to suppress free speech, which just made posters try to antagonize them more. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/church-scientology-asks-followers-censor-comments-160...104800.html;_ylt=AgiblGjT99Oc.GUyKWNCcG6s0NUE;_ylu=X3oDMTNtZXZkOTd2BG1pdANKdW1ib3Ryb24gRlAEcGtnA2RmMzZmZDQxLTA5YTMtMzk0OS1hY2FjLWVjOGZjZDkyMzhlNARwb3MDMgRzZWMDanVtYm90cm9uBHZlcgNhYmMzMWE1MC1jNzhhLTExZTEtYmZkOS02ZGM3NDQwYmQ4ZDk-;_ylg=X3oDMTFpNzk0NjhtBGludGwDdXMEbGFuZwNlbi11cwRwc3RhaWQDBHBzdGNhdANob21lBHB0A3NlY3Rpb25z;_ylv=3

Well there's a change of attitude, and reporting ... am guessing his scientology buddies have reined him and his ego in!!! I hope it continues on like this and there's no cheap shots pulled. At the end of the day Suri welfare is the most important thing and I believe Katie can give the more stable home environment.

Truth    

Rathbun says Cruise was a "total gentleman" during his divorce from Kidman, and they split everything 50-50, including custody of their adopted daughter Isabella and son Connor.
.
But Rathbun says that then the organization, including all the staff members who work in Cruise’s Los Angeles home, began to quietly turn the kids against Kidman.
.
Rathbun says he witnessed Tommy Davis, head of the church’s Celebrity Centre and the son of actress Anne Archer, feeding Isabella and Connor Cruise false information about their mother so as to turn them against her.
.
"Tommy told them over and over again their mother was a sociopath, and after a while they believed him," Rathbun says. "They had daily sessions with Tommy. I was there. I saw it."
.

Even if you believe Tom is going to give in without a fight (and I don't) He will be in Suri's life and will have influence on her religious education and as the father he has every right .
Katie chose to marry and have a child with a fanatical Scientologist.
