Tom Cruise Sued

for Allegedly Spying

12/21/2009 7:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tom Cruise is being sued for allegedly hiring a notorious P.I. to illegally wiretap a magazine editor's phone ... according to documents obtained by TMZ.

Tom Cruise
The plaintiff, Michael Davis Sapir, claims Cruise, attorney Bert Fields and jailed private investigator Anthony Pellicano conspired to spy on him.

There is a long history between Cruise and Sapir. In 2001, Cruise sued Sapir for $100 million after Sapir claimed to have video evidence that Cruise "engaged in a homosexual relationship." That lawsuit settled later that year. In the settlement, both parties issued a statement saying that no such tape existed.

In the latest suit, filed Friday in L.A. County Superior Court, Sapir claims Pellicano illegally wiretapped his phone during the time the 2001 lawsuit was active.

Sapir claims in the suit that Cruise, Fields and Pellicano were all in cahoots.

tom cruiseSapir is suing for $5 million, minimum.

Bert Fields tells TMZ, "The allegations are absolute garbage. We did not even hire Pellicano to work on the Sapir case."

No immediate comment from Cruise's rep. Pellicano is in the pokey.

Truths about Tom Cruise:
He is impotent and cannot get an erection; He is insane; His kid is a test-tube baby and possibly not from his sperm; He is in love with... HIMSELF!

Gotta love #10. Whether or not you're a scientologist spewing for the "cause", your arguments would hold a bit more credibility had you not mis-spelled your own username.

xcalibur, Mauria, Flapjacks must be TMZ employees trying to stir up conversation on this post. Michael Davis Sapir is just trying to get money.

Who cares about Michael Davis Sapir... no one.

Cruise is washed up and has lost more of his marbles than he should have at his age. I hope Sapir gets TONS of $$$ from him!

Run Katie! You're still young enough to make a great life for you and Suri far, far away from old Tom!
