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."

Sources close to the divorcing couple say Tom agreed to keep his Scientology pal Salacious B. Crumb away from Suri at all times.

Well, this must be the fastest divorce in the history of all divorces. I live in a small town with a couple who have far less than these two and their divorce has been going on for 4 years.

amazing - you conspiracy theorists who wanted to use this story as a platform to rail against the COS have no more opportunity to do so, these adults have acted respectfully and taken care of each other with velocity and maturity.

Welp, the bad stories in the DailyMail and on the VillageVoice about Scientology - were almost coming daily lately.. Talk about bad publicity..Maybe that played a part.

I hope that there's language in the divorce settlement which prohibits both parties from talking badly about one another.

I remember when Nicole thought that divorce was settled amicably, then her children were [allegedly] told all sorts of bad things about her..and she was called all sorts of bad names... which basically caused them to shut her out...


They started calling Katie "mom" and Nicole --- Nicole... Katie was around when that happened, of course, since the children started calling her "mom", so hopefully her lawyers made sure that this would not happen to her...

Damn ..... this could have been one of the best divorce wars ever ! So, how do we untangle this mutual agreement, and set the path for a courtroom showdown ?

With an Iron Clad Prenup where she gets nothing... why was Tom so fast to settle. I think she got a boat load of money to keep her mouth shut about Tom being gay. That is why she was divorcing him in the first place.

I guess now Miscavige can put away the videotaped auditing sessions and instead of releasing them publicly he can go back to just playing them at parties for his guests to laugh at.
