Tom Cruise And Katie Holmes' Divorce Finalized
Less than two months after they [article id="1688799"]announced they were splitting up[/article], Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' divorce has been finalized.
The couple's divorce case was closed Monday after a New York judge signed off on the final judgment, according to E! News. Quoting "a source close to Cruise," E! reports that the actor is "very happy and relieved that he is moving forward ... his priority is being a good father and this settlement will make sure that continues."
The divorce comes 53 days from when Holmes originally filed for divorce and 42 days from when the couple reached a settlement agreement. While no details of that settlement were publically released, the former couple were reportedly "working together" in the "best interests" of their daughter, 6-year-old Suri.
Cruise and Holmes announced they were getting divorced in late June, ending their five-year marriage. The couple began a whirlwind courtship in 2005 that included an [article id="1504271"]engagement atop the Eiffel Tower[/article] and a wedding at an Italian castle in November 2006.
In the week following their initial announcement, the couple (affectionately dubbed "TomKat") were constantly covered by the paparazzi, including an incident when Holmes was ambushed by a New York Daily News reporter while shopping at Whole Foods.
When asked how she was holding up following the split, [article id="1689037"]Holmes told the reporter[/article], "I'm fine, thank you."
The marriage was the third for Cruise -- he was previously married to Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman -- and the first for Holmes.
