Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have reached an agreement in their divorce case, according to her attorney. Holmes attorney Jonathan Wolfe said in a statement Monday that the case has been settled and an agreement was signed. "The case has been settled and the agreement has been signed," Wolfe said in an email statement.
"We are thrilled for Katie and her family and are excited to watch as she embarks on the next chapter of her life."An assistant in his office who would not give her name would not elaborate on the agreement or say if the couple was now divorced.
The couple has a six-year-old daughter, Suri. Earlier in the day, publicists released a joint statement from the couple that said: "We are committed to working together as parents to accomplishing 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."
Holmes filed for divorce less than two weeks ago, putting an end to the romance that began in 2005. The high-profile Hollywood split has played out in the celebrity news media, where Holmes has been portrayed with overwhelmingly more sympathy. Whether true or not, the narrative that's emerged is of a locked-away Holmes breaking free from the servitude of a strange, corrupting marriage.
