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."

So, if I think that Miss Holmes is a mediocre actress (fact), her fashion line is a joke, and her parenting skills do not impress me, I belong to Scientology .
Sorry, but Miss Holmes is a mediocre actress and all of the above. There are many people who go through divorce and etc, nothing unusual here. No one would even notice Miss Holmes and her stupid games, if she wasn't married to Tom Cruise. Like it or not, you are all here posting because of his star power, not hers.

Well, if you all posting here remember, she filed for full custody. SO, she didn't get it. Which means, she was the one bending, not him. Him finalizing it this way, means he is a good person. I like Nicole Kidman, but she apparently " knows what she did" to alienate the other two kids from her life.. So, why just don't you all see the way it really is. Tom Cruise just gave a good lesson to many man, and good for him, continuing to do his craft with devotion that few actors has demonstrated. Once many talented actors see the money , they jump into the drug market. Well, he doesn't and proves with his energy and devotion to his art, that he is one of the best.

Nicole got the boot likely b/c she didn't convert to COS and Tom took the kids away-she was essentially shunned, though COS has another phrase for it. I figured the same thing would go down w/ Katie. What a nice suprise...smart Katie-watched/learned and used her ammunition appropriately!

Of course, Tom Cruise would settle the divorce because he is afraid of all the secrecy, abuses and crimes that Katie Holmes have experienced and observed first hand, might see the light of the day and seen by the world.
They shut Katie up with money and whatever she wanted. But they CAN NOT shut us up who have witness what is going on behind the closed door of Tom Cruise and his lover David Miscavige (leader of the church of scientology).
Human Trafficking, pimping by David Miscavige for Tom Cruise and if little Davey (miscavige) doesn't approve of them, he will get rid of them.
Oh yeah, Tom is willing to give up on Suri and sacrifice his own family for David Msicavige. They have a very strange and dangerous relationship.
Shame on Bert Fields who is willing to be accessory to all these crimes and abuses just for $$$$$$.

Bert Fields, Tom's lawyer, just said it. Yes, "Agreements were signed". As an ex-scientologists, I can tell you in those agreements, Katie signed away her integrity and freedom of speech. Which means,they shut her up forever talking about all the out-points, crimes and abuses she witness.
This is going to bit Katie in the ass hard eventually, knowing how Tom likes to be in charge and with the help of his "man-wife" David Miscavige (church's leader) they will make sure Katie's life end up in misery . I don't want to see Katie to be harmed, but I know Tom and his man-wife very well and they are both criminals.

Wow, that's strange. This publication, and others, claimed just last week that T&K were both gearing up for a LONG protracted battle. Turns out none of you "media" clowns know WTH you're talking about. Shocking. Just stick to publishing pictures of celebs and leave the "reporting" to the big boys.

IT WAS QUICK.. because Katie and her lawyers only had to dangle the keys to Tommy's closet in front of him and he wanted to sign asap. She pulled a reverse Scientology reveal on him.....Bravo to her! He has a lot more to lose than anything he could possibly have on her. And she probably doesn't give a damn anyway. It was more damaging to her image and career STAYING married to the joke he has become. I hope the agreement keeps Suri far away from that cult he belongs to. It's for weak minds with psychological and psychiatric problems.

Tom was able to destroy Nicole's relationship with her children using his Scientology and Katie was very aware of the "Cult" and how they have brainwashed Tom, his children with Nicole and so many others. Katie went in with a team of lawyers who had devised a strategy to go on a public crusade to destroy the brainwashing techniqes used in this very sick and demanted religion.
Katie you rock - you are my hero and finally now you are free to live your life away from these horrible and mentally insane people.
You Go Girl!!!!
We all love you and always will.
