Tom Cruise

Didn't Settle Divorce

To Hide 'Secrets'

7/12/2012 11:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0711_tom_cruise_secrets_Settlement_articleTom Cruise did NOT settle his divorce with Katie Holmes because he feared she might spill secrets about the actor -- this according to Tom's lawyer.

Attorney Bert Fields scoffs at reports claiming Tom was fearful of what Katie might reveal, telling TMZ, "Tom had nothing to hide and did nothing in the agreement to hide anything.  People are just making this stuff up."

As for the child custody arrangement, it appears Tom will indeed have the "significant" contact with Suri that we reported about last week.  Fields said, "Tom will definitely have a meaningful relationship with his daughter, but I can't talk about specifics of the agreement."

Fields said Tom's primary concern in the settlement was Suri and added Tom was "pleased we could work out how Suri will be treated and dealt with."

And, on the subject of Katie Holmes, Fields said, "I don't think Tom is bitter.  He's sad it came to this," adding, "The media firestorm which is replete with bogus information is unpleasant for him."

funny thing ( to me) is you all are here accusing other of "spinning" while that is exactly what you are doing: spinning

you don't know sh-t, you have never known sh-t and you never will know sh-t


you don't even know your own *ss from a hole in the ground but you blabber on and on about your expertise about the private lives of perfect strangers just because they are famous and you have seen them in the movies

@SMOOTHIE set up a TMZ account 5 days ago.

SMOOTHIE is a scientologist or a scientology rent boy.

SMOOTHIE hasn't posted on any thread except the Tom Cruise cult of scientology ones.

@Smoothie, if there are no such things as cults, what was Jonestown? Heaven's Gate? Legitimate faiths that just happened to include the scripture of mass suicide?

Scary that the SCI-cult is grooming you guys to believe that, actually.

A lawyer is paid to say whatever his client tells him to say even if it is a lie, hence a lawyer is paid to lie for his client. What tom is experiencing right now is called KARMA and now he knows exactly how Nicole felt when he did the same thing to her. There had to be a tremendous reason why Katie did what she did, the way she did it and the lawyer can't explain that away. She was escaping from a life she did not want for her daughter and tom was a major part of that. SCIENTOLOGY

I tend to believe Tom Cruise doesnt have anything to hide myself. I think all you people who make up these crazy accusations on the message boards are a bunch of loons. I am beginning to wonder if TMZ writers somehow start these rumours first and the idiots start following suit and believing in the most outlandish story out there. Do you guys really think Tom Cruise's alter ego is James Bond? REALLY? you stupid stupid people!!!

If one person could substantiate any of these rumors, the tabloids would make them rich. Since no one has done it, the only thing I know about Tom Cruise is I like his movies.

Seems like the Scientologists got to Harvey....KMZ seems to be trying to make Tom seem normal and Katie crazy...you can see a shift in KMZ attitude.

Can't believe how she is dragging that poor child around! Doing everything to get her mug in the mags. Tom always treated her with regard-always held hand and looked after her. She is a Kardashian clone.

They both did the right thing for Suri, and that's what matters--they settled it quickly and easily. As far as having nothing to hide--that's none of our business anyway. But I wish attorneys would stop thinking we believe everything they say--they are paid to make their client look good, and that's true of both sides.

TMZ?Harvey must be getting paid heaps to put positive spin on Tom Cruise and the evil cult of scientology.

I mean Harvey is openly gay and has expressed how difficult it is in some ways being homosexual. You would think he would be more pro active than supporting an organisation that says homosexuality is an illness and a perversion that can be treated.

I mean Tom Cruise and scientology think Harvey's homosexuality is a perversion and an illness.
