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.

I don't see agreement on a financial settlement being a problem. It's the custody issue that will be contentious because of his religion's requirement that Tom -and every other Scientologist - completely 'disconnect' from Katie, who is no doubt now seen as a big ol' 'suppressive person'. The church's tenets don't seem to give Cruise any wiggle room when it comes to co-parenting with a mom who doesn't share his faith. I think Cruise desperately wants Suri to be raised as a Scientologist. I think Katie is equally desperate to keep Suri far, far away from their e-meters, No happy joint custody scenarios here.

While all the speculation on so many sites has been interesting, not to mention somewhat fun to read, there is a little six year old girl who from all indications, needs structure, routine, school on a consistant basis, and friends. I would imagine Katie's family has made many attempts to get this across to her and she has been listening. It is obvious this was not a last second decision as all the moves Katie has been making over an extended period of time point to her unhappiness and realization that the life she was leading and the marriage she was in was not going to bring the kind of long lasting happiness she and Suri should have been having! And BTW, Katie's attorney team have only made one statement and she has only said one thing to the effect that she is alright. Media folks have been doing all the writing and speculating and commenting! I am not going to be in the least bit surprised if TC gives her anything she wants and calls a halt to all the commenting espeically about Scientology!

For Tom, a real life and true love is a mission impossible.

I have witnessed Scientology firsthand, been to the Center and saw a military style security force that terrified me. Katie knows their secrets now and her child's safety is paramount...Tom messed with the wrong little Mom...smart enough to make a plan and brave enough to put it into action. I believe if she had not done so she might have disappeared just like the other broken wives. Kudos Katie America salutes you. And we will protect you, watch out little Tom.

Tom's a giver, at the end of the day he'll do what's best for his daughter Suri.
It will happen as he wishes and for the sake of his daughter, and no anti-Tom mouths will be able to do anything about it.
Except whine about it after the fact on internet blogs and forums :D

I'd love to think Katie will take then down, but I think the only way these cults will stop is when enough people stop forever idolizing these mad "gurus" and start thinking for themselves. It's fine to take some courses and stuff but why would you want to pay an organization to do all your thinking for you and become a robot? Unfortunately I think if Scientology closed down tomorrow a lot of the people in it would simply move on to the next cracked out power hungry "guru".
