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.

I can remember that years and years ago there were photos of
tom Cruise swimming in the nude at a party hosted by Calvin Klein. There was also talk of Cruise engaging in gay sexual escapades.

Interesting that Scientology calls on religious freedoms at times like this. Most Americans and Anonomous members would fight for the right to practice any religion. When Scientology takes away freedoms and harms members, displays covert conduct (you know what I mean), prays on community programs with false data... Just google it!

Stay away from my family!

Amazing hatred here. I was born several years after the Brown Shirts, but I get a real good idea of what it must have been like. It just shows to go ya, you can change the shirt, but you can't change the person wearing it.

Apparently, Tommy C got his ass handed to him today in court! They tried to get it thrown out of court and instead his overpriced $500 per hour lawyers were stunned by a young maverick lawyer who works by himself out of his condo in the South Bay. It's the Rocky Story of the legal profession!
