LOS ANGELES (AP) — An attorney for actor Tom Cruise said he had filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit Wednesday against the publishers of Life & Style magazine for articles that said the actor has abandoned his 6-year-old daughter, Suri.
The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Los Angeles.
An email message left for a spokeswoman for Bauer Publishing, which produces Life & Style, was not immediately returned.
Mr. Cruise and Suri’s mother, actress Katie Holmes, were divorced earlier this year. They were married for six years. The breakup has been tabloid fodder, and Suri often appears in entertainment magazines.
“These serial defamers are foreign-owned companies with their global headquarters in Hamburg,” Mr. Fields said. “They take money from unsuspecting Americans by selling their malicious garbage. Having to pay a libel judgment may slow them down.”
