Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ divorce finalized
Wellington: Katie Holmes’ divorce from her estranged husband Tom Cruise is officially complete.
The 33-year-old actress split from Cruise in June and after less than two weeks, papers were filed and the couple agreed on a settlement.
According to E! News, a New York City judge approved the terms of annulment on Monday.
Holmes has been awarded primary legal and physical custody of the former couple’s six-year-old daughter Suri. Cruise has reportedly been granted “generous” visitation rights, Stuff.co.nz reported.
The settlement is said to contain stringent rules on how the child will be raised and what religious beliefs she will be exposed to.
Cruise’s Scientology religion is widely rumoured to have been one of the reasons the former couple’s relationship broke down.
Holmes and Cruise were married for five years before the breakdown of their relationship.
