Tom Cruise
and Katie Holmes have SETTLED their divorce ... this according to Katie's lawyer.

Jonathan Wolfe tells TMZ, "This case has been settled and the agreement has been signed.  We are thrilled for Katie and her family and are excited to watch as she embarks on the next chapter of her life."

TMZ reported in the last few days lawyers for both sides were in a marathon negotiation -- trying to end what began as a divorce war.

As we reported, one condition Tom had for settling was "meaningful, significant" contact with Suri.

Wolfe added, "We thank Tom's counsel for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution."

Sheeeesh! I guess we all know now who has a job and those who spend freakin HOURS making comments on this stupid Hollywood farce. Now maybe we can all get back to the seriousness of the Kardshanian Klan. * fade to black.......

Well, what ever she had on Tom must be pretty compelling for him and the church of scientology to roll over so quickly and cave!. Those disposable cell phones must have helped to give her a running start. Nicole Kidman didn't fare as well, and after all was said and done she rarely got to see her kids since they became immersed in scientology. Good for you Katie!

Cruise and Scientology are probally in full damage control. Chances are good you won't hear a word from either of them.


Now that the divorce is settled they are just hoping this will just go away. But alot of damage has already been done and a bunch of what the cult doesn't want people to know about is all over the place. So good luck with that.

all the conspiracy theorists will continue to be gleefully paranoid, inconsiderate and disrespectful as always, spinning this to suit their distorted world view and completely disregard the exact the published words of the parties in involved

The terms are on radaronline. Katie made it clear that Suri would never visit Tom without her own nanny and bodyguards.

Looks like Scientology put the brakes on that action. Hope Katie and Suri got everything they wanted. Looking forward for Katie to start dating.

It sure sounds like Katie Holmes ALSO knows how to fly a F-14 "TomKat" jet fighter and last week she got fed up and pulled the trigger on an air to air missile and shot Tom "Maverick" Cruise out of the sky. Tom's been in a dizzying "flat spin" falling to earth ever since. :)

I bet the REAL hotshot, very brave U.S. Navy pilots are pretty much embarrassed by Tom. He's certainly not one of them. Don't mess with Katie !! Tom better tell all his wacko, control freak Scientology buddies to do the same thing.

From Radar: “Suri is Katie's number one priority. Tom only has Scientologists that work for him and Katie insisted that her staff will always be with their daughter. Under terms of the settlement, Suri isn't permitted to be exposed to anything Scientology related and this includes going to any Scientology churches, parties, etc. Katie made sure that this was ironclad in the agreement," a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com.


Hope it's true...

Katie and her family must sure have a lot of negative info that can put Cruise and the Scientologists out of order. Take it slow Katie and beware. The scientologists may not give up going after you. Them and Tommy Boy. JUST BE CAREFUL AND DON'T TRUST ANYONE BUT YOUR FAMILY.

Holmes being a celeb and married to famous celeb involved in a powerful and creepy cult, was very smart to stay well in view of the public. This action on her part was necessary to show the Scientology goons she was not, nor will ever be initimiated by them, and she was a momma grizzly ready to take them and Cruise on in a dirty battle if they forced her hand.

Two good outcomes about all of this:

1. The American public will now be scrutinizing any/all other celebrities' membership in this cult, so I"m pretty sure Travolta's career is already over. I have no problems with ANYONE being gay/lesbian. What I DO have a problem with is celebs trying to lie or cover it up. This is a SLAP in the face to celebs who are honest about their choice of gender for companionship and love. Add to that Travolta has been a very vocal spokesperson about Scientology. Travolta's career is over. Any celeb Scientologist who is vocal about their membership in this cult now will also risk ending their careers as well. Best they ALL keep their mouths shut about this cult, and not publicly defend it.

2. More good news is that Holmes hired the 'better' legal team, which was very savvy in knowledge of how the media could be used to bring about a quick ending to all of this.

Holmes and her legal team pwn'd Cruise's legal team!! Public favor was overwhelmingly in their favor. It's the public, people like you, me and millions of others who stood behind Holmes that ultimately put Cruise and Scientology in a NO WIN situation.

Way to go American public, YOU have more POWER than you realize, and smarter than the media gives you credit for!
