TomKat Divorce: Two Parties Finally Reach Settlement

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have reached an agreement to settle their divorce, representatives of both film stars have confirmed.

In a joint statement released earlier on Monday, the pair said they were “working together” to settle custody of their daughter Suri, six: ”We are committed to working together as parents to accomplish what is in our daughter Suri’s best interests,” the statement read. ”We want to keep matters affecting our family private and express our respect for each other’s commitment to our respective beliefs and support each other’s roles as parents.”

The divorce has raised speculation among Hollywood media that the couple differed on raising Suri as a Scientologist. Neither Holmes nor Cruise’s legal team would comment. A lawyer for the Church of Scientology denied last week that Cruise wanted Suri to join the Sea Organization, sometimes described as the organisation’s militaristic wing.


It was revealed last month that Holmes, 33, was filing for divorce. It was Holmes’ first marriage and Cruise’s third. He previously was married to actresses Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman, which both ended in divorce. He adopted two children with Kidman. Cruise also had a three-year relationship with the Spanish actress Penelope Cruz.

Paul Talbert, a family law expert, told Reuters news agency the settlement had been reached quickly for such a high-profile couple: ”Cases with so many moving parts do not routinely resolve themselves in a matter of 10 days. We obviously have one or two extremely motivated people,” Mr Talbert said. ”Nobody wins in a messy public battle, and you certainly have two concerned parents here that recognised Suri definitely loses if this is a public divorce.”

Since everything is under tight wraps, let’s speculate about the whole settlement. What conditions do you think were included in the settlement? As for Suri, who will have custody over her?
