Tom Cruise is on a warpath. The actor has filed a $50 million lawsuit against In Touch and Life & Style magazines for claiming that he's a bad dad.
The tabloids published cover stories claiming the actor abandoned his daughter Suri following his split with Katie Holmes.
Cruise has defended himself against the allegations, and according to documents obtained by TMZ.com he stated: "I have in no way cut Suri out of my life - whether physically, emotionally, financially or otherwise... 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."
At one point, In Touch magazine published the headline "Abandoned by Daddy," to which Cruise commented: "As my numerous emails with Suri's mother during this time period demonstrate, I was a constant presence in Suri's life."
He added, "While I'm sure my daughter misses me when I am not with her (as I miss her), she is a very happy child, and we have a wonderful relationship and cheerful phone calls."
