Tom Cruise is fighting back on claims that he’s abandoned Suri. The actor has filed a $50 million lawsuit against Life & Style and In Touch magazines who printed headlines such as “Suri in Tears, Abandoned By Her Dad” and In Touch’s “Abandoned By Daddy”.
TMZ reports Cruise claims the stories are false and insists, he “loves his daughter dearly and would never abandon her.”
His lawyer Bert Fields states, “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.”
Fields adds that any money Tom gets from the magazines will go to charity.
