Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes Reportedly Trying to Work Out Divorce Settlement


By Daniel Gates


Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are reportedly working out a divorce settlement to avoid a court battle, although neither side has confirmed the rumored behind-the-scenes negotiations.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Cruise and Holmes are attempting to hammer out an arrangement through their attorneys before a courtroom clash in New York, where Holmes filed for divorce nine days ago.

In the time since the split was announced, certain sites have spread inaccurate stories about the soon-to-be exes’ legal maneuverings, including the false report that Holmes had asked for an “emergency hearing” on child support and custody.

Holmes is seeking sole custody of the couple’s six-year-old daughter Suri.

As a Holmes insider told Gossip Cop, Suri’s education and upbringing were the major considerations in Holmes’ divorce filing.

Again, there’s no confirmation yet that the couple is in the midst of formal settlement negotiations.

Gossip Cop will have updates.
