That was fast!
Less than two weeks after Katie Holmes filed for divorce from Tom Cruise, the couple has reached a settlement, according to People magazine.
While there is no immediate word on the details, Cruise and Holmes just released a joint statement, showing a united front for the first time since news of the split.
People originally ran the statement:
“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.
Holmes’s lawyer Jonathan Wolfe confirmed to TMZ, “This 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.”
Wolfe continued, “We thank Tom’s counsel for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution.”
Cruise’s attorney, Bert Fields, just told TMZ, “The Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes case has been settled with a signed agreement. Tom is really pleased we got there, and so am I.”
Sources close to Holmes and Cruise told People that the parents have been “working on an arrangement in which Suri, 6, lives in New York with her mother and her father is given generous visitation rights.”
