NEW YORK — Although it was expected to be one of the largest divorce cases in history, actors Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have reached a settlement Monday.
Less than two weeks after Holmes, 33, filed for divorce, the couple’s divorce lawyers say the pair has reached an unexpectedly quick settlement.
“The case has been settled and the agreement has been signed,” said Holmes’ divorce attorney Jonathan Wolfe. “We are thrilled for Katie and her family and are excited to watch as she embarks on the next chapter of her life. We thank Tom’s counsel for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution.”
As usual, the ex-couple has kept the details of the settlement private because of their 6-year-old daughter, Suri, leaving many to wonder what exactly will happen in terms of the battle for custody and especially what they have decided regarding the role of Scientology in Suri’s future.
According to Los Angeles divorce lawyer Steve Mindel, “A quick settlement indicates that they were able to agree that they’ll both do some co-parenting.”
Many have taken Holmes’ side during the divorce, saying the once bright-eyed, exuberant “Dawson’s Creek” starlet lost her spark after marrying Cruise. Maybe now that she is single again, she will once again become the bubbly actress everyone knew and loved.
