Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes settle divorce

Tuesday July 10, 2012

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have reached a settlement in their divorce, her lawyer said.

"The case has been settled and the agreement has been signed," Jonathan Wolfe said in a statement. Mr Wolfe's office would not elaborate on the agreement.

"We are thrilled for Katie and her family and are excited to watch as she embarks on the next chapter of her life," the statement said.

"We thank Tom's counsel for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution."

Katie filed for divorce less than two weeks ago, putting an end to the romance that began in 2005.
Earlier, the couple - who have a six-year-old daughter, Suri - asked for privacy.

They said in a joint 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,"
