Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have been going through an ugly divorce as the world has watched for over a week now. A new report just out reveals that Holmes will have primary custody of their six-year-old daughter, Suri, at their New York City home. This is a huge relief to Katie Holmes since she feared her estranged husband’s belief in Scientology would do more harm than good to Suri.
Tom’s visitation is specified that Suri’s nanny and bodyguards must accompany her at all times to help ease a smooth transition. It will help the six-year-old girl handle the changes better as she goes from mom’s house to dad’s.
What else is outlined in the divorce settlement? Tom isn’t allowed to expose their daughter to anything Scientology-related — meaning parties, gatherings, churches, etc.. All of this is according to a source close to the situation who spoke exclusively with RadarOnline. Apparently Katie made this an “ironclad” agreement in the divorce docs. Tom Cruise only has Scientologists work for him, so with the staff Holmes has staying by her daughter’s side, this will assure Suri isn’t exposed to any of that.
Prior to news of this divorce between Cruise and Holmes, the faith of Scientology has been a controversial topic in the headlines. Even Katie worried that she was being followed by members of the religion when she spotted two vehicles constantly waiting outside her NY apartment. There was speculation that it could have been a media source following her, but many reports suspected it was Scientology. Members of the church denied it was them.
How did Katie Holmes manage to get primary custody of their daughter? Tom Cruise was pretty determined to not go down without a fight over Suri.
