Hollywood superstarand have reached a "private" divorce settlement in a record 11 days after the actress announced their bombshell split, raised a question .
Is Scientology behind this all speedy settlement?
"The case has been settled and the agreement has been signed," Holmes' attorney Jonathan Wolfe said in a statement. Cruise's rep Amanda Lundberg confirmed the settlement.
No details of the deal were announced, but earlier on Monday morning (July 9), Cruise and Holmes issued a joint statement in which they asked for privacy and said they were focusing on what was best for Suri.
To answer for above question.There are there are two reasons why Holmes and Cruise settled so quickly.
1-Either cooler heads prevailed and they decided to do the right thing for their child
2-There may be something out there that one party knows and the other doesn't want anyone to know "so they moved quickly to keep everything under a big canopy."
Marty Rathbun, a Scientologist for 22 years and considered the second-most powerful figure in the organization until he left in late 2004, told the Village Voice on Sunday that he foresaw a speedy settlement that would secretly give Holmes everything she wanted .
Mike Rinder -- once the brains behind Scientology's handling of the media until he himself left the group in 2007 -- calls a dazzling strategy."Katie's been brilliant, absolutely brilliant," Rinder told The Hollywood Reporter on Monday.
Jefferson Hawkins, who was with the Church of Scientology for 35 years and served as its head of marketing, says he thinks the damage done in just the past week is one more black eye that the embattled group might not survive.
Holmes, 33, is getting primary physical custody, while Cruise, the most high-profile member of the controversial Church of Scientology, will receive significant custodial time, TMZ.com reported.
Cruise was losing the publicity war and he knew it. Pictures of Holmes cradling Suri on the streets of New York showed her to be maternal and protective, while daily Scientology exposes depicted him as a dangerous kook.
