Katie Holmes Will Have Primary Custody Of Suri

Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise have reached a settlement agreement less than two weeks after the actress filed for divorce. Suri will live primarily with Katie in their 3-bedroom apartment in New York City while Tom will get generous visitation rights.

People reports a source said, “They both love their daughter, and Tom thinks she should be with her mother.”

Tom also “didn’t want his family dragged through the mud,” says the source. “Neither one of them wanted this to be hashed out in public.”

Holmes’s lawyer Jonathan Wolfe said in a statement on Monday, “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.”

He also added, “We thank Tom’s counsel for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution.”

The agreement is confidential and its terms will not be disclosed.

    How on earth did they settle this so quickly? Makes you wonder if she has some dirt on him…

    This is what everyone’s saying. Not even Nicole Kidman could pull this one off like that. Had she known what Katie surely knows, she would’ve also gotten at least shared custody of Connor and Bella. But this man pulled all the strings on that divorce. Not this one though.

    There’s already a blind item floating around about why Tom Cruise gave Katie what she wanted so quickly. And it’s not pretty. :-/

    I’m really surprised this has been settled so quickly, but makes me wonder if this is only the beginning and Tom will hit back with something later.

    Maybe he just didn’t want to drag this out in court, and Katie seems like a great mother so why would he complain.

    Good for Katie. She’s up against one of the most powerful people in Hollywood and came out with primary custody. Good for Tom for not wanting this to become a circus.

    I’m so happy for her! Maybe the fact that her father is a lawyer really helped. It looks like she definitely had something on him that he couldn’t fight. Shen as been planning this for a long time. Every time I’ve seen an interview with Tom or katie, it always seemed so fake. I don’t think they ever had a real husband and wife relationship. That’s just my opinion.

      Really? Definitely?

      Another moron who wants to pretend they know something they don’t.

    Maybe Katie just learned from what happened to Nicole?!
    I’m happy for them and hope she and Suri can live a better life now (with better i mean with more freedom)…
