Tom Cruise's Tabloid Lawsuit: Publisher Demands Details About Actor's Relationship With Suri Cruise - Huffington Post 

Tom Cruise's $50 million lawsuit against Bauer Media Group is going to get nasty, and Suri Cruise is right in the middle of all of it.

In October, the 50-year-old actor filed a defamation lawsuit against the publisher of Life & Style and In Touch magazines, over a story that suggested the actor had abandoned his 6-year-old daughter Suri, since his divorce from actress Katie Holmes. Cruise's attorney, Bert Fields, called the story a "vicious lie," adding, "Tom is a caring father who dearly loves Suri. She's a vital part of his life and always will be. To say it in lurid headlines with a tearful picture of Suri is reprehensible."

Bauer Media has stood by its story, claiming the reporting was "substantially true," and they plan to fight the libel suit by proving there were no false statements made.

In court documents filed on Feb. 14, lawyers for Bauer are requesting a laundry list of information about Cruise's relationship with his daughter.

Bauer's lawyers have requested a complete rundown of Cruise's schedule; the extent to which he was in contact with Suri after his separation and divorce from Holmes; the expectations for Cruise's contact and visitation schedule with Suri and the terms of the divorce agreement; his history of separation from Suri since her birth; Suri Cruise’s mental and emotional state following her parents’ separation and divorce.

Lawyers have also requested information about the role Cruise's membership in the Church of Scientology may have played in his decisions regarding his visitation and communication with Suri, as well as the history of all the lawsuits the actor has filed over the years.

The extensive discovery process is poised to possibly expose personal information the actor doesn't want made public, and lawyers for Cruise shot back with an equally lengthy list of discovery demands for Bauer Media about its policies and practices with regard to publishing stories about the actor, his family and the Church of Scientology.

Katie Holmes’ ‘career plans worry Cruise' - Yahoo

 Katie Holmes' reported new career plans have allegedly annoyed Tom Cruise.

It was recently suggested the actress was considering re-training as a lawyer after famously divorcing Hollywood star Tom last year.

Katie won sole custody of their daughter Suri in the legal proceedings - which were finalised in less than two weeks.

There has been much speculation that the former couple differed on raising six-year-old Suri as a Scientologist, which is Tom's faith, and now Katie's new career plans are said to be angering her ex-husband as he thinks they shed a negative light on him. It's also thought that Katie's brushes with the controversial religion are one of the reasons she is considering a change of path.

This is beginning to sound like $cientology's 'disconnection' policy is going to be getting a LOT more attention in the entertainment press. Which could lead to even more stories in the main stream press.

That's a good thing, but it's sad to see this little girl so much at the center of this.
