Tom Cruise - Call Me That, I'll Sue!

3/2/2009 11:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tom CruiseTom Cruise is ticked off because a t-shirt company is allegedly planning to use his image on a shmatah that will say "sex addict" on the front and "everything turns me on" on the back.

We've obtained a letter sent by Aaron Moss, Cruise's lawyer, to Addictiontee.com, threatening to sue the pants off the t-shirt company if it goes forward with the product, calling it false advertising and consumer fraud.

The letter also says, "...we believe that such photograph is a fake that has been 'Photoshopped' or otherwise manipulated to make it look like he's wearing your t-shirt."

A spokesman for the t-shirt company says the shirt is in production. And the company is acting none too scared, adding, "We're going into production of a t-shirt inspired by Cruise's attorney with the words 'legal addict' on the front and 'I sue everybody' on the back."

It is illegal to slander, libel or otherwise make false claims about anyone on a t-shirt like that. It defames a really handsome, intelligent man, and I don't like it. I mean, I didn't go to Harvard Law, but Georgetown is up there, I have a pretty firm grasp of Constitutional Law too, and I don't like these attacks on him either. I'm not an attorney, but I have a pretty clear picture of who these guys are. They are probably borke enough where a judgment cannot be attached to anything. They are going to slander, defame and libel someone publicly for nothing. They won't make any money and when they go bankrupt and try to reincorporate, some really smart attorney is going to find them through the bankruptcy courts. I think he's hot.

Like I said, I'm not an attorney, so I can't spell "broke" either apparently. But you knew what I meant.

And they seem to be suing under like state business deceptive practices acts, so like they're almost guaranteed damages without much effort. And they'll definitely get punitive damages from the company's wanton and willful intent to publish here. It's like they don't care about money. You can buy shoes and clothes with money. Do they know that?

I think I'll buy 10 of those shirts. Also, if the t-shirt company does get sued, how would I go about contributing to their defense fund? Anyone who gives Cruise and/or $cientology the finger when they're threatened w/lawsuits is my kind of company.

You rock addictiontee!!

Tom is under attack by Jett Travolta's body thetan. He gets cranky when that happens.

No, Tom is not "cool". He is a controlling, arrogant, know-it-all, humorless, Xenu worshipping nut who gives vast sums of money to a duplicitous cult.
