The details surrounding Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s divorce settlement will remain private, but sources say Holmes is “very happy” with the agreement.
Multiple sources confirmed to Us Weeklythat the 33-year-old actress got everything she wanted — including primary legal custody of their 6-year-old daughter, Suri.
Holmes filed for divorce from her husband of five years on June 29, and though arecent interview with Elle magazine suggests that Holmes had been planning to divorce Cruise for some time, sources told Us Weekly that her decision to end her marriage wasn’t easy, and she “did this only for her daughter.”
Holmes and Cruise came to a settlement in record time, and according to TMZ it was all because of Hollywood’s best-dressed 6-year-old that things moved so quickly and with such civility.
Sources tell the website that it was a series of conversations about how Suri would be “irreparably damaged by parental warfare” that kept things between the superstar couple at bay, and allowed their lawyers to strike a deal.
