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."

All this information on the CRUISE divorce and nothing on the KARDASHIAN divorce proceedings! How is that fair? KIM and KRIS are still "man and wife" going on one year, August 20th. KIM has become a blatant ADULTERESS! No boundaries,as usual.

Not so fast. Contact with Suri doesn't mean anything beyond limited visitation. And limited visitation often turns into Supervised visitation in double-quick time. The thing about custody cases is this:

Unlike divorce, they are never really, over.

Just as I predicted.... Tom is too secretive to allow this to drag out.

Tom gut dumped big time and now he has had to settle with Katie in NY with whatever conditions she says.

Tom cruise say thanks to scientology for ruining your life. Now you know how everyone else feels about scientology.

That seems easy. Didn't expect that! I hope Katie was able to hold her ground and is able to keep Suri out of Scientology.

Remember, the Cruise's had an excellent pre- nup in place. That is why it was accomplished so quickly.

Katie had to have had some major goods on him to have caused his side to settle so quickly. I don't think she would have been as compliant as Nicole was. She's not handing over complete custody to Tom, that's for sure. And with Suri being so young and vulnerable, she's getting out at just the right time. Good work, Ohio girl.
