They ended up together on Dawson's Creek, and they remain close to this day.

Appearing on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight this week, the Fringe star was asked if he heard from his former costar after her divorce from Tom Cruise and he appeared to shock the host with his response: yes!

How did it go?

Katie Holmes apparently walked away nothing other than relatively modest child support in her divorce from Tom Cruise ... which is all she wanted.

From the onset, it was reported that Katie wanted nothing from Tom other than a divorce and for him to comfortably support their daughter Suri.

Mission accomplished on both fronts.

Sources familiar with documents filed with the court indicate that Katie received no lump sum payout in the couple's recent divorce settlement.

This is consistent with the prenup she signed which shuts her out of Tom's fortune. She also received nothing in the way of spousal support.

Tom has agreed to pay Katie $400,000 a year in child support, or $33,333.33, until Suri turns 18, coming in a shade under $5 million total.

He'll also cover her medical, dental, insurance, education, college and other costs, but for a man worth over $250 million, it's hardly an issue.

Also interesting: Suri Cruise cannot go to a "residential school" from now through her high school years ... i.e. no boarding school for her.

Katie could have fought for more support, but Suri brought them together even as they were divorcing and they opted to settle quickly.

A pair of celebrity gossip tabloids apparently have their collective fingers on the pulse of all things Suri Cruise. It's like they're reading her every thought.

According to In Touch Weekly and Star Magazine, the youngster's thoughts on the recent bombshell Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce are quite clear:

Team Tom.

If you believe this (dis)reputable pair of magazines, Suri Cruise was won over by her dad during his recent get-together with her - a $170,000 getaway.

Possibly accompanied by Scientology chaperones, the lavish reunion clearly did the trick, with Suri allegedly pleading to be with Tom over Katie now.

Suri Cruise, mind you, is six years old.

Despite this fact - and that the two settled their divorce and custody pact already in a relatively amicable manner, we're supposed to believe this?

In (slightly) more comprehensible news, the stunning Yolanda Pecoraro is said to be in the running to be the next Mrs. Tom Cruise for a few years.

Six weeks prior to filing for divorce from Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes sat down for an interview with Elle in which she clearly hinted that something in her marriage was amiss. The actress talked of a new phase.

Meanwhile, a feature on the actress in the latest C Magazine was actually taped just one day before Holmes announced her intentions to split from her husband - and it also portends a different path for the brunette beauty.

For one thing, Holmes never mentions Cruise by name.

For another, she looks ahead and tells the publication: “I’m ready to take on some more challenging roles. I feel like I worked so much at such a young age that I really wanted to have life experiences. I feel more balanced and like I have more to bring to the table. I always felt like I wanted to catch up [in my personal life] to what I was doing [in my career].”

And Holmes is standing by those words. She recently booked a gig on Broadway.

Another sign that all was not well at the time between Tom and Katie? Asked if having Suri brought the couple closer together, the 33-year old star replied: “I don’t know. I mean... I don’t know. People have been having babies a long time.”

Not exactly a ringing family endorsement there.

Katie Holmes has lined up her first acting gig PTC. Post Tom Cruise.

According to The New York Times, the actress will take on a role in a Broadway production of Dead Accounts, coming on board the play as a woman residing with her parents in Cincinnati and trying to get her life together.

The comedy is penned by Smash creator Theresa Rebeck and stars a total of five characters. No word on the other actors yet.

Holmes, who also appeared on Broadway in 2008, is expected to make her Great White Way return some time this fall.

While she's advancing her professional life, new reports claim Katie's ex is working on his personal life; i.e. finding a new soulmate. You may be up, Yolanda Pecoraro!

Simply put, Tom Cruise did not see this coming. Not one bit.

Despite various bloggers and media outlets claiming the actor and Katie Holmes agreed to some kind of five-year marriage contract, the latest issue of People quotes a source who swears Cruise was taken aback by his wife's divorce filing.

What did I not see? Cruise wondered on June 28 when news broke, this insider tells the magazine.

Tom and Suri

The most difficult part for Cruise was not seeing his daughter for nearly a month - they finally reunited in New York City yesterday - but he was off filimg a sci-fi movie called Oblivion.

"He's wanted to see her as fast as possible since this started," said the source. "He couldn't shut down production, cost people their jobs. People count on him."

Why did Tom and Katie agree to such a quick settlement? Look no further than the toddler in his arms above.

"Tom tried his best to do what's right for Suri," according to his lawyer Bert Fields, who adds that the star is "sad" but not "bitter" about the situation.

For more on this story, pick up the issue of People that goes on sale Friday.

Through stealth activity, which included the use of burner cell phones, Katie Holmes plotted her divorce from Tom Cruise in secret and came out unscathed in the court of public opinion.

Now, similarly, the actress has left the scene of a car accident without any significant injuries.

Multiple outlets confirm that Holmes and six-year old daughter Suri were hit by a garbage truck last night while driving in the star's Mercedes. No one was hurt, but a police report has been filed.

Katie and Suri

"Suri was crying in the car," says a People Magazine insider, who adds that Holmes was not driving the vehicle.

Strangely enough, the crash marked the second time in four days that Holmes and Suri have been involved in an accident. Last Friday, a member of the paparazzi hit their car as they were arriving home after a trip to FAO Schwarz.

Tom Cruise's attorney, Bert Fields, demands that the National Enquirer and its parent company, American Media, retract its new cover story about the actor's just-settled divorce from Katie Holmes or face a defamation complaint of epic proportions.

Among other tawdry allegations, the magazine claims Cruise's home was akin to a "house of horrors" and that his estranged wife, Holmes, lived a "tortured life" in a marriage that was a "living nightmare" in virtual lockdown for years.

Taking the Questions

Fields absolutely went OFF on what he said was a "disgraceful and lurid cover with bogus, red and yellow headlines announcing one cruel lie after another about Mr. Cruise and his family" and went on to take them apart one by one:

"Contrary to your headlines, Mr. Cruise has not engaged in any 'abuse' or 'humiliation' of Katie Holmes," he wrote. "Nor has he ever subjected her to any punishments."

"It is also completely untrue that Mr. Cruise ever subjected his wife to relentless verbal abuse, emotional punishment, humiliation and intimidation."

"These are all egregious lies. He did none of these things."

Was Tom Cruise totally blind-sided by his divorce from Katie Holmes? Looks like the actress may have planned the whole thing in secret!

E! Online is reporting that Holmes used a secret disposable cell phone to contact her lawyers about the divorce plans. Not only that, but the actress apparently purchased the Manhattan apartment where she is now living with her daughter Suri before the divorce news broke.

Katie Holmes, Pants

With their divorce settlement agreed upon very quickly, this is all looking to be very calculated on the part of Holmes. Holmes even spent part of every month in New York for the last two years, a requirement to obtain residency there!

Did Tom know about the plans, and the two decided to keep it from the media together? Or did Katie hit him over the back of the head with it after everything was already in motion? What do you think happened?

The terms of TomKat's divorce settlement will remain confidential, but Katie Holmes got "exactly what she wanted" from Tom Cruise, according to reports.

Holmes, who initially filed for sole custody, will receive primary legal custody of their daughter, Suri Cruise, 6, with generous visitation rights for her dad.

"She won and she is happy. Very happy," a source close to Katie said of the star, who blindsided Tom last month. "She can move on and finally live her life."

Katie Holmes Single

The decision to divorce Tom Cruise after nearly six years of marriage wasn't easy, but Holmes "did this only for her daughter ... that's all she cared about."

The actress, who secretly began renting her own NYC apartment two weeks before filing for divorce, "pulled it off brilliantly," according to the source.

"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."

Um, congratulations? She still got divorced. Sometimes breakups can be for the best and all, but that assessment just sounds so calculated and cold.

Of course, if she really feared Scientology taking over her daughter's life, Katie may have felt she had no choice but to approach it in this manner.

We will likely never know, but credit must be given to both sides for settling this in record time, and amicably, regardless of what caused the rift.
