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."

Oh, great. No more Katie, what's her name, pictures I hope. I only read whatever they write about her, because of Tom Cruise. Totally not interested to see Miss Holmes in movies, on the streets, and please, please, no fashion for her. Tom just proved that he is one of the best there is.

I'll bet Tom gave her custody in exchange for her silence on his "secrets."

Tom already signed the papers and his lawyers were in NY not cruise. Yes the settlement is reached but no one really knows if in fact that Suri is going to be kept away from scientology when Cruise has visition. Did Katie get sole custody visition rights or joint custody. Which means this little girl can be played back and fouth like a yo-yo between scientology and catholic.


Hope for Suri's sake this is not the case.

I think both Tom and Katie are hiding something. This is just weird. Maybe this was in the works for a while and Tom being blindsided, katie feeling free is all just part of a decision that was already a done deal.

Of coarse! The deal was made NOT based on Suri but the church! Katie got what she wanted a quick divorce if she doesn't speak of the church! Wait and see!

Well, it looks like the Media blitz Scientology is trying to do, is failing horribly. Stop flagging anti-scientology comments, and making snide remarks to those who don't agree with your "religion". Quit bullying those who don't care to deal with Scientology. Grow up.

It was in Tom and Scientology's best interest to make it quick and quiet. Let the speculation continue

Suri was the sacrificial lamb at the altar of scientologists and TC ended up paying dearly.

possibly why ? Though Why Tommy Boy wouldn't have a confidentiality agreement as part of his pre-nup is WAY beyond me ... Harvard Medical has less skeletons in their closets

Not suprised that he settled quickly. There was no way that he would allow a big shiney spot light to shine on his little cult. Ktie did the smart thing. Ahe had smart people in her corner that was obviously giving her very good advise. I have no doubt had she not played this the way the she did Tom would have done the samething he did to Nicole and turned Suri against Katie. Several ex children said that this was commom practice of this cult. Unlike Nicole, Katie fought back and was willing to let it be known that Scientology was the main reason she wanted full custody of Suri. She was also willing in court to put this cult under a big bright spotlight. Scinetology has in the last few years been getting some bad press. Part of the agreement is limitation on what either one can say about religion to Suri until she is older. Infact religion was the main part of this agreement. She will now not have Scientology nanies, or Scientology teacher and friends. Goog for Katie I have to say my respect for her has increased greatly.

If Tommy Douche really wants to salvage his image, he will give Katie 20-40 million just for putting up with his crazy azz for five years. Since she was stupid and or naive enough to sign away all rights to his money, Tommy Boy needs to step up, give her a wad of cash, make some sort of statement to the effect of "Katie is the best thing that ever happened to me. She gave me my beautiful daughter Suri who is the light of my life. Suri will always be well taken care of and I want Katie to be happy. Katie will always hold a special place in my heart, she is the mother of my child and she will always be my princess blah, blah, blah.". Give her the cash, no hard feelings, co-parent Suri as best as you two possibly can and each of you be on your merry way.

Giving Katie a boatload of cash will make him seem like less of a POS in the public's eye. Tom will no doubt move on to a new, young, naive dumb-as-a-box-of-rocks fresh piece of meat in no time flat who will put up with his crazy azz antics about as long as Katie was able to stomach him.
