Tom Cruise files $50 million lawsuit

By Cassie Alsup. CREATED Nov 6, 2013

Watch out, here comes Tom Cruise again!

After multiple magazines questioned whether or not the 51-year-old actor had "abandoned" his child after splitting up with her mom, Katie Holmes, Cruise filed a lawsuit against the publishers for $50 million.

"I have in no way cut Suri out of my life -- whether physically, emotionally, financially, or otherwise," (per TMZ).

The stories ran in 2012 in "In Touch" magazine while Cruise was shooting overseas. He is adamant that he kept in close contact with Suri despite the distance.

"Even during the times when I was working overseas and was not able to see Suri in person, we were (and continue to be) extremely close," says Cruise in documents (per TMZ). "As my numerous emails with Suri's mother during this time period demonstrate, I was a constant presence in Suri's life."
