Less than two weeks after Katie Holmes filed for divorce, the actress and Tom Cruise have reached a settlement.
Tom Cruise and his soon-to-be ex-wife Katie Holmes reached a settlement Monday, releasing a joint statement requesting privacy as they work through the terms of both their divorce and custody agreement of their 6-year-old daughter, according to a report from People magazine.
Holmes’s attorney Jonathan Wolfe confirmed the deal in a statement to PEOPLE:
“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. Cruise’s attorney Dennis Wasser separately told PEOPLE, “All the lawyers and the parties are happy that it’s done, the deal was closed and we wish everyone well.”
There was no immediate word on the details, but Holmes and Cruise said in a separate statement they focused on protecting daughter Suri, 6.
“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,” says the statement from Holmes and Cruise’s reps, Nanci Ryder and Amanda Lundberg respectively.
I’m still a little puzzled about Suri’s life. I hope Suri can be well in the future days.
