Tom Cruise Files $50 Million Defamation Suit

Don’t come between actor Tom Cruise and his daughter, Suri. Most especially, don’t write bad things about Cruise and Suri.

Cruise is going after Life & Style magazine[1] for $50 million in a defamation suit. Cruise claims the magazine ran in an article saying he’s no longer a part of his daughter’s life and had “abandoned” her. Cruise, obviously, disagrees.

His lawyers say the article is untrue and a “vicious lie.” They go on to say Suri is a vital part of Cruise’s life and to say otherwise is “reprehensible.”

Cruise, star of this year’s Rock of Ages, isn’t living with his daughter. Suri’s mother, actress Katie Holmes, last seen in Adam Sandler’s Jack and Jill, divorced Cruise in early 2012 after six years of marriage.

If Cruise wins the suit, the award will be given to charity.
