It was announced today that Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise have signed divorce papers; ending their 5 year marriage. This comes just two weeks after Katie filed for divorce, making it the fastest settlement agreement in history. So maybe not that extreme, but with that much money involved, this is quick!
Tom Cruise jumping on the couch and enthusiastically professing his love for Katie on the Oprah Show seems like yesterday. It is sad that the thought of true love and a “soul mate” has been squashed by this sudden dissolution of marriage. Have we now all lost hope for the Hollywood fairytale marriage? They seemed so “perfect“.
Well, this goes to show that all the money in the world does not guarantee happiness and “perfect” marriages, don’t exist. It also confirms that being married to heart-throb and multi-millionaire Tom Cruise, is not all roses.
It’s a shame that their little girl Suri will join the millions of other children living in one parent households. But at least she will certainly always have loving parents, a roof over her head and food to eat, so it’s not all bad.
The newly divorced couple released a statement to E! News, saying “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.”
If they think this will be a private affair…they have another thing coming. Unfortunately, in the celebrity world there are no secrets. But at least they settled out of court to keep the skeleton’s in the closet. Katie having a dad as an attorney, probably helped her get everything she wanted.
On another note; isn’t it strange that his three divorces came as his ex-wives turned 33-years old? That’s right…Mimi Rogers, Nicole Kidman and now Katie Holmes. Maybe he should marry an older woman to avoid this happening in the future. Isn’t Demi Moore available?
