Kathy was afraid that Cruise would also involve their daughter with Scientologists. However, Katie changed her mind when Cruise decided not to go to court against Katie and agreed to comply with all the conditions of his wife. On her insistence, Cruise will not take Suri to any of the events of Scientologists. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes signed an agreement for divorce in July, admitting that they have no fundamental claims against each other.
