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."

Boy did she have dirt on him for this to happen so fast. So glad someone out did Scientology. We won't ever know the details but you can bet Katie got lots of money and Suri will be raised a Catholic. Love it!!!

I'm sure the terms will be sealed and after that little blurb earlier in their joint statement about respected each others beliefs, its clear she has pulled away from the cult. I find it funny that Tom kept Isabella and Connor out of Nicoles life, but he's not willing to abide by the cults directives for Suri and cut her off completely. Guess common sense overrides cult directives 50% of the time.

Wow, he sure must have been scared of what would come out if they had not settled. And we will never know what the terms are because I am sure Katie had to sign a confidentiality agreement. This speaks volumes about Tom Cruise and all the skeletons he has in his closet (along with himself in there).

C'mon guys, we all know Scientologys rotten press is the only reason this was settled so fast.


The grand poohbah MISCAVIGE probally told or ordered Cruise to settle this now.


All the Scientology cult crap coming out is the only reason this was settled so fast. Cruises maturity had nothing to do with it.


The main thing is...is little 6 year old Suri safe from the Scientology cult thinly disguised as a relegion?

CONGRATULATIONS Katie!!!!! Soooo happy for you that you have your freedom back and are able to be the person you are without anybody trying to change you or make you follow any religion. Have a great time, go out with friends, do girls night out and hit some clubs, go to your own Catholic Church and enjoy your life. You handled all of this like a pro and you are a smart, smart girl. Way smarter than we gave you credit for. Props to your Dad who helped you break free and stay close to your family always. They love you dearly. :) Just Awsome!!!

what is so bad about this church of scientology? It really doesnt seem that bad compared to alot of other religions...I've asked this several times to people and no one can give me a answer...they just say i need to educate myself or say I'm stupid....but from what ive read it seems like its not really a religion...but a practice that focuses on technology and uses the term "religion" for tax breaks....which in a way is smart.....overall i dont really see anything wrong with it?
