According to the Ventura County Star, TomKat has settled their divorce case in what appears to be record time for a celebrity dissolution.  In their agreement, Holmes will get primarycustody of their daughter, Suri.

The confidential deal was hammered out over the weekend in New York, and announced last Monday, 11 days after Holmes took her Hollywood action hero husband by surprise with the filing of divorce papers in Manhattan.  Of course, the key issue in the split was the Church of Scientology, of which Cruise is the most prominent member.

Since the parties had signed a prenuptial agreement governing the distribution of assets, talks between the pair’s lawyers centered on the role of Scientology in the upbringing of 6-year-old Suri.  The agreement provides dad with visitation rights but gives mom the lead role in choosing how Suri will be educated.  It appears the quick settlement between the former couple will help them avoid a long drawn out court battle that many celebrity couples face.
