It’s been less than two weeks and already Tom Cruise has finalized his divorce from Katie Holmes. In other words, he let her off the chain easy.
Holmes attorney Jonathan Wolfe confirmed that Katie and Tom reached a settlement telling People magazine, “The 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. This result could not have been achieved without the hard work of my partner Gary Skoloff and our co-counsel Allan Mayefsky, Michael Mosberg and Larry Trachtenberg of Aronson Mayefsky and Sloan and Peter Walzer and Chris Melcher of Walzer & Melcher in California. We thank Tom’s counsel for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution.”
And get this. Even Tom’s attorney Dennis Wasser spoke on behalf of Scientol-Tom telling PEOPLE magazine, “All the lawyers and the parties are happy that it’s done, the deal was closed and we wish everyone well.”
So what happened? Who gets what? How much alimony and child support is involved here? Peeps, we don’t know yet. But you KNOW that all is going to come out in the wash.
TomKat’s reps released the following statement and from what it sounds like, they are going to do the best they can for Suri. “We are committed to working together as parents to accomplish what is in our daughter Suri’s best interests. We want to keep matters affecting our family private and express our respect for each other’s commitment to each of our respective beliefs and support each other’s roles as parents.”
As long as Scientology is not involved, I am sure Katie and Suri will be just fine.
