Katie Holmes Will Get Custody, But Tom Cruise Will Save Face For Scientology: DIVORCE SETTLED, SO FAR OUR PREDICTIONS LOOK GOOD - 2012-07-08
Hubbard and his third wife, Mary Sue. UPDATE (July 9): The New York Post is reporting that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have signed a private divorce settlement, and put out a statement emphasizing the mutual respect they have for their "respective beliefs." This only convinces us that the predictions in this story are likely to be true.
Just talked to Marty Rathbun and asked him about the statement put out by Holmes and Cruise: "It's carefully crafted. It's vague," he says. "They think they're going to get away with that statement, but I don't think it's good enough. There's too much interest in it from the press."
I asked him if he thought, now that the divorce is over, the press will stop caring about what's happening in Scientology. "I don't know if the press is going to stay interested or not, but I think we're past the tipping point now. Nobody's walking into a Scientology center to join up now," he says, and we discussed all of the crises facing the church. More later. For now, here's the rest of our story from yesterday predicting the outcome of the divorce.
