Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes Divorce Settlement Talks Underway

by at . Comments

Lawyers for Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are working to hash out a settlement in their divorce case in hopes of avoiding a protracted, public battle.

Quite the contrast from Kris Humphries, who's been fighting Kim Kardashian tooth and nail almost a year later ... and getting Myla Sinanaj pregnant.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. Lawyers on both sides are in talks to negotiate a prompt, amicable and private Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce.

"Neither one of them wants this to be hashed out in public," says a source.

Holmes's visit comes after Cruise attorney Bert Fields spoke to the BBC about his plan to let the other side play the media before filing a response.

"Tactically we can't say where Tom will file a divorce case and if he'll be seeking joint custody of [six-year-old daughter Suri Cruise]," said Fields.

Sources say the lawyers are negotiating child custody, visitation, child support and a property settlement between the couple, which has a prenup.

The whole settlement could be ratified in New York if all goes well, preempting a rumored move by Tom's camp to transfer the case to California.

Here's hoping they get it done for their own good, and their daughter's.

Holmes knew what she was getting into. She is one shrewed bitch. She sucker punched little Tommy. Least it seems that way. Cruise seems to have over estimated himself & all his eh-em, charms this time. Karma is a bitch....
