The message is pretty clear: Don’t mess with Tom Cruise. The “Mission Impossible” actor has filed a $50 million lawsuit against Life & Style and In Touch magazines for claiming that Cruise had abandoned his daughter, Suri, 6.

Both magazines, which are owned by Bauer Publishing, ran similar headlines in the months following Cruise’s June divorce from his estranged wife, Katie Holmes. The Life & Style story in question ran in July and alleged “Suri in Tears: Abandoned by Her Dad.” Meanwhile, In Touch magazine ran a cover story on Oct. 1 that pictured a sad-looking Suri with a similar headline, “Abandoned by Daddy.”

Cruise’s lawyer Bert Fields confirmed that Cruise, 50, made the action against Bauer Publishing on Wednesday at the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, saying that the tabloids’ claims were “a disgusting, vicious lie.”

TMZ has Fields’ statement in full:

“Tom is a caring father who dearly loves Suri. She’s a vital part of his life and always will be. To say he has ‘abandoned’ her is a vicious lie. To say it in lurid headlines with a tearful picture of Suri is reprehensible.Tom doesn’t go around suing people. He’s not a litigious guy. 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.”

These serial defamers are foreign owned companies with their global headquarters in Hamburg. They take money from unsuspecting Americans by selling their malicious garbage. Having to pay a libel judgment may slow them down.”

 

This isn’t the first time that Cruise has sued a publication. The actor has also sued the Daily Express, National Enquirer and Vanity Fair in the past.
