Katie Holmes gets 'sole custody' of Suri as she reach divorce settlement with Tom Cruise behind closed doors
Katie Holmes' lawyer has confirmed her highly-publicised divorce with Tom Cruise has been settled, as reports emerge she will have 'sole custody' of their six-year-old daughter Suri.
It seems the couple have reached an agreement out of court, meaning the actor's beloved Scientology is no longer at risk of scrutiny with the religion's secrets being dissected during a trial.
Jonathan Wolfe said: 'This case has been settled and the agreement has been signed.'
Speaking to TMZ, he added: 'We are thrilled for Katie and her family and are excited to watch as she embarks on the next chapter of her life.
'We thank Tom's counsel for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution'.
According to TMZ, while Katie has sole custody of Suri, Tom will still get significant custodial time with his daughter.
Apparently the agreement also includes details on what Tom and Katie are allowed to tell Suri regarding religion, including Scientology.
The restrictions are eased as Suri gets older, the website reports.
