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."

I'll bet my life savings that she had to sign a gag order never to mention Scientology or Toms involvement with it to the press ever.

For this to have been settled so quickly, it makes me think that Tom was not blindsided at all and that him and his lawyers had been working on the settlement already for months.

Katie handled it perfectly. The only way to escape a controlling situation, whether it's a domineering man or a cult is to do it exactly that way. Quietly, keep your head down, make your plans while smiling, get your ducks in order (bank accounts, place to go, etc), then ACT FAST & DECISIVELY. Before you can get corralled.

I've known people who have escaped Scientology, and they had to change their identities. Although they were friends of mine, they never in the whole time I knew them revealed their birth-names . . . out of total fear that they could be found.

I hope there is a judicial investigation in Scientology and katie has to give evidence under oath. That way she gets to spill the beans and not breach the agreement.

Let's hope meaningful contact excludes brainwashing by Tom's cult. Congrats Katie!
