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.

Yes we all hate scientology and Tom Cruise because he flogs it. And it isn't a religion. France has already ruled that. So should the US. It is a cult.

I have long wondered how involved Cruise was with Pellicano. I have long been suspicious that Tom was behind Nicole's phone being tapped and the recording being leaked to the press just after they separated. It just seemed to me that the recording quality was good, and it was so unlikely that a journo would commit such an illegal act. If Tom knew and approved of these illegal wire taps, he ought to be dealt with in the criminal justice system.

Look at the clams trying to come out and defend this cult. There is NOTHING this cult won't do to protect it's own. Just google Lisa McPherson. Google Scientology Secret Service: http://www.xenu.net/archive/go/index.htm

Jett Travolta would still be alive had his parents not belonged to this cult. The end is near for the Co$.

Tom and Tiger should get together. They think they can do and get away with anything.

Elin and Katie should RUN away from them and NEVER look back!

"Gotta love how one of the first comments is about Scientology. Religious discrimination is always a great way to make your point!"

I see. Name something a "religion" and it's automatically a good thing no one ought to question. Ever.

If the allegations prove to be true, Michael Davis Sapir may be remembered for sending Bert Fields the way of Terry Christensen to the Big House.
