National Enquirer with a multimillion-dollar lawsuit for claiming
that they have details of the actor's recent split with wife
Hollywood Reporter posted a letter from Tom Cruise's Los Angeles
attorney, Bert Fields. The three page letter blasts American Media
Inc, parent of the Enquirer, and term their claims as "vicious,
hurtful, damaging lies". The lawyer added that this will cause
damages worth hundreds of millions of dollars!
The Enquirer's issue hit the newsstands on Wednesday. Tom Cruise
and Katie Holmes, whose split is the talk of the town, are going
through a very bad patch. It is being said that both Tom Cruise and
Katie Holmes had an out of court settlement last weekend in which
Holmes was granted primary custody of their six-year-old daughter
Suri with generous visitation by Cruise.
The rumour is abuzz that the reason for the split between the
two is centered on Cruise's membership in the Church of
Scientology. Neither of the couple has confirmed this.
