Hollywood actor and actress Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have finally reached a settlement just two weeks after Katie filed for a divorce, where she demanded for the sole custody of their 6 year old daughter, Suri as she was not comfortable raising Suri according to the beliefs of Scientology, a religious sect which Tom is a member. That was a speedy resolution, I think. At least there were no nasty court battles..Both couples want what they think is best for Suri.
Since this divorce issue started, there has been a lot of renewed interest and attention made towards Scientology. If they had allowed the case to go to trial, there would have been a lot of scrutiny on Scientology, which Tom would not have liked.
According to the statement jointly prepared by both couple, or should I say ex-couple, which they sent to CNN: "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."
