Tom and Katie Divorce

The Suri Clause

7/9/2012 3:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0709_tom_suri_katie_articleTMZ has learned, the divorce settlement between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes is extremely complicated, outlining things both Tom and Katie can and cannot do with Suri.

Here's what we know.

-- Katie will have what amounts to primary physical custody, but Tom has significant custodial time with his daughter.

-- A report claiming that Suri must be in the presence of Katie's bodyguard and nanny when she is around Tom is "absolutely, 100% false."

-- The custodial provisions of the agreement are extremely detailed, and religion is one of the topics.  We're told there are restrictions on what Tom and Katie can discuss with Suri on the subject of religion, including Scientology, however, those restrictions are eased the older Suri gets.

In short, we're told the agreement is extremely detailed and outlines a course of conduct for years to come.

@Sheamus, michaeljackson/tomcruisefanforlive, Smoothie, Davet and Michael.....
Care to share the whereabouts of your best friend, David Miscavige's Wife, who has been missing for about 5 years and also why Alex Jentzschs' mom can't come to the funeral or see her son's body.

Katie must have some very serious dirt on Tom because he just doesn't seem like the type of guy to surrender so completely and so quickly.

I'm sure Katie has a lot of secrets she can expose and he doesn't want that to happen.

He better behave himself when he does have visitations with his daughter. No Scientology b.s. during those visits.

I hope we someday find out what she has on him for him to agree so quickly. Maybe there is a clause that she is never to speak of it pubilically which really stinks for us the public.

I am no attorney, but I am quite convinced that the "religion" clause is unconstitutional and would not hold up in a court of law if it was challenged.

Of course, if the parties agree to it and abide by it, then it is simply their choice to do so.

However, I do not think it is constitutional to deny a parent to the right to train his or her child in matters of religion as the child grows, beginning and ending at any age (or until age 18). That is one of those inalienable rights we have as Americans.

I doubt, though, that either of these will challenge that part of the settlement. A denied right is only deemed unconstitutional if it is challenged; and in this case, that would probably go to the Supreme Court to decide.

I bet tom is pissed and can't believe katie pulled this off. Tom thought the world would stand by him. What a slap in the face it was to him ,that we did NOT. He's not as big of a power house he thinks he is. That includes satanology. Katie got what she wanted. Poor tom is tucking his tail between his legs now.

Looks like the higher-ups at Scientology got scared of the exposure. And looks like Katie has a very outstanding lawyer for a father.

Wow ...    

I hope the best interests of Suri have been put in place first and foremost. But kudos to them, to settling things so quickly. Whatever the reason...

Stay strong Katie. You go Woman, make certain Suri remains protected!
