Tom Cruise
has had it with reports he's a bad dad, and his lawyer is calling one of the mags on the carpet.

Attorney Bert Fields just fired off an email, attacking "Life & Style," for what he says is "a bogus cover headline that Suri has been 'ABANDONED BY HER DAD.'"

Fields says, "That, as anyone knows who saw their photos together yesterday and today, is a disgusting, vicious lie." Fields goes on, "Until this week, Tom was shooting a film on location, but he spoke to Suri every day."

Fields adds, "He's with Suri right now; and he was with her the day before Life & Style trumpeted their cruelly false accusation. Tom dearly loves Suri and the last thing he would ever do is abandoned her."

Anything to sell a magazine. Regardless of his religious beliefs the guys a working dad like most other dads. He's going to be away from his kid for long periods of time and do the best he can to see her. Abandoned my ass, the kids rich beyond belief for the rest of her grandchildren's life. Wait and see, 15 years from now she'll be hanging more around her dad than her mom because of all the crap she's being told today. Karma's a b!t@h.

I think the story was too far. I haven't seen any examples of Tom being a bad father. You can say what you want about Scientology but that does not make him a bad dad. Suri shouldn't have to be dragged into all of this gossip either.

Katie Holms is also partially responsible she should be telling people she and tom worked out custody agreement and Tom Loves and cares for his daughter and did not abandon her.

RIP: Rain Man, Top Gun, Risky Business, A Few Good Men, Jerry Maguire.

Now I'm unable to see any characters you will perform because of TMI about your personal life.

If he loved her, he would stop turning a blind eye to the abuses that take place within scientology and start fixing it from within before indoctrinating her in to it. Starting with ousting that nut case Miscavidge.

What's scary is his sister is there too. She home schooled his other children and brainwashed them. Is his BFF Miscavige who is always by his side with him?

Since when is being a hard working father a bad thing?? He works hard so he can give his family a great life!! Get real people he's Tom Fricken Cruise!!! Katie should have known when she married him that he was gonna work a lot he always has!! It's a shame how people judge like they do without knowing the whole situation!!!

He did abandon her for the Freakentology religion. He could have saved his marriage and family by just renouncing his crack pot brainwashing religious cult. He chose the cult so Katie split.
Abandoned. He may visit but his loyalties are in the cult not his family...

He abandoned Suri and Katie by choosing the cult instead if his family.

AH    

Gosh leave him Alone already! He loves his daughter you can tell by the pics. Maybe he's weird in other ways but being a Dad to that little girl looks genuine.

Well, too bad he estranged his other children from their mother. Also, why don't these kids have any education?

Nothing says," I love my children" like a statement from your lawyer.

I want to know why Tom gets to see Suri anyway. I thought once a wife (or husband) leaves the COS they are not allowed ANY contact with the people who leave. How many regular COS members have been denied access to their kids over the years when a parent left the church. How is this permitted for Tom and no one else?

tired of hearing about them    

I know this is slightly off topic, but why in every picture is Tom carrying Suri? She is what 6 years old? She is big enough to walk by herself.
