Katie Holmes Is 'Very Happy' With Divorce Settlement: REPORT

Posted: Updated:

The details surrounding Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise's divorce settlement will remain private, but sources say Holmes is "very happy" with the agreement.

Multiple sources confirmed to Us Weekly that the 33-year-old actress got everything she wanted -- including primary legal custody of their 6-year-old daughter, Suri.

"She won and is happy. Very happy," said a source close to the soon-to-be ex-Mrs. Cruise. "She can move on and finally live her life."

Holmes filed for divorce from her husband of five years on June 29, and though a recent interview with Elle magazine suggests that Holmes had been planning to divorce Cruise for some time, sources told Us Weekly that her decision to end her marriage wasn't easy, and she "did this only for her daughter."

Holmes and Cruise came to a settlement in record time, and according to TMZ it was all because of Hollywood's best-dressed 6-year-old that things moved so quickly and with such civility.

Sources tell the website that it was a series of conversations about how Suri would be "irreparably damaged by parental warfare" that kept things between the superstar couple at bay, and allowed their lawyers to strike a deal.

As previously stated, details into the settlement have not been released and are likely to remain private. However, sources told Us Weekly the terms of the agreement will bring exciting changes for Holmes.

"She has her career back and her daughter. She will be a huge star now. . . This was all played so well. Katie is very happy with how it all came out," said the source.
