Tom Cruise Sues “Sleaze Peddlers” For $50 Million Over “Disgusting Lies”
Tom Cruise has not abandoned daughter Suri following his split with Katie Holmes, and he’ll sue anyone who says otherwise! At least, that’s what his latest legal move implies: Tom has filed a $50 million lawsuit against Life & Style for making those same claims.
“Tom is a caring father who dearly loves Suri,” says Tom’s lawyer, Bert Fields. “To say he has 'abandoned' her is a vicious lie. To say it in lurid headlines with a tearful picture of Suri is reprehensible.”
You can see the headline-photo combo in question in the image below.
“Tom doesn't go around suing people,” his lawyer continues. “But when these sleaze peddlers try to make money with disgusting lies about his relationship with his child, you bet he's going to sue.”
In case $50 mil sounds egregiously steep to you, Tom isn’t yelling “Show me the money!” for his own personal gain — his lawyer says that he’ll donate any money he wins to charity.
