Katie Holmes to Get Primary Custody of Suri
Katie Holmes will reportedly get primary custody of her and Tom Cruise's daughter Suri.
The 33-year-old actress and the 50-year-old star - who split late last month after five years of marriage - agreed a divorcement settlement earlier today, and insiders believe the brunette beauty will continue to live with their six-year-old daughter in New York City.
Katie is also thought to have insisted that Suri is accompanied by the actress' own team of bodyguards when she visits Tom to ensure she isn't indoctrinated into sci-fi cult Scientology. "Katie insisted that Suri's nanny and bodyguards always accompany her when she visits Tom. Katie did this for several reasons. This will ensure a smooth and easy transition for Suri when she is with Tom. Suri is Katie's number one priority. Tom only has Scientologists that work for him and Katie insisted that her staff will always be with their daughter. Under terms of the settlement, Suri isn't permitted to be exposed to anything Scientology related and this includes going to any Scientology churches, parties, etc. Katie made sure that this was ironclad in the agreement," a source said.
Earlier today, the couple came to a divorce agreement less than two weeks after they split, and Katie's attorney Jonathan Wolfe praised the Mission: Impossible actor and his representatives for their "professionalism and diligence" to enable the pair to make such a quick decision. "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. We thank Tom's counsel for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution," he said in a statement.
Katie and Tom also filed a joint statement through their representatives, which read, "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."
