Tom Cruise: Defamation Lawsuit Heats Up

Posted Sunday February 17, 2013 3:57 PM GMT

In response to an October lawsuit filed by Tom Cruise, Bauer Media is requesting specifics on the actors divorce from Katie Holmes, according to reports from The Hollywood Reporter.

The $50 million defamation suit against Life & Style is a result of the publishing company’s report that the “Jack Reacher” hunk abandoned his daughter, Suri, during court proceedings.

As part of the discovery process, Bauer is asking for documents including "the expectations for Cruise's contact and visitation schedule with Suri and the terms of the divorce agreement," as well as an evaluation of "Suri's mental and emotional state" following her parents' split.

For their part, Cruise’s attorneys are asking for the identities of the sources who gave the story to Life & Style, as well as their policies regarding publishing stories about Cruise.
