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."

Some of the tabloid magazines are out of control and print many untruths. I do not blame him for suing the magazine as these are things that Suri may read some day.

He may be nuts, but I believe he truly loves all 3 of his kids.

I'm sure he is a Doting father. My problem is, when all this happened why did he still stay in Iceland filming, it was a firestorm when it was announced, and it went viral and the paps tripled in number around his wife and daughter. He didn't leave filming, as a matter of fact, once he was done with that film, he flew off for filling in on the next film. Seems he didn't show up until AFTER this story broke. I don't fault the man for making a living but he needs to draw a line in the sand when it comes to his daughter. She should be first, and foremost.

Tom Cruise HAD A "CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATION" to the producers to complete the filming of Oblivion. The filing of a divorce petition is a "LEGAL" MATTER THAT HAS TO BE HANDLED BY ATTORNEYS, PERIOD!!! Tom Cruise's absence would have cost the producers a "TON OF MONEY" because the filming crew would STILL HAVE TO BE PAID IN ADDITION TO THEIR LODGING NOT TO MENTION THE EQUIPMENT RENTALS AND PERMIT LIMITATIONS!!! Furthermore, his co-stars may have had OTHER COMMITMENTS PENDING THE COMPLETION OF THE FILMING FOR OBLIVION!!! A divorce ISN'T A "LIFE OR DEATH" SCENARIO. Tom Cruise has "BEEN THERE BEFORE AND CAME OUT ON TOP"!!! Insinuating that a "WORKING FATHER" isn't doing all he can do is somewhat "SHORT SIGHTED" ON YOUR PART!!! After all, it was Katie Holmes who "FIRED HIS LONG-TIME "SECURITY STAFF" AND CHOSE TO HIRE HER OWN!!! She was well aware of the "MEDIA FRENZY" IT WOULD CREATE!!! Tom Cruise handled his BUSINESS LIKE A "NO NONSENSE" PROFESSIONAL!!! WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT??? WHAT HAVE "YOU" BEEN SMOKING???

I personally don't agree with the whole Scientology thing, but I can't imagine anyone calling Tom Cruise a bad father. He should sue them.

Alot of you people who are so against Tom Cruise...I'll be very honest here. You sound like almost like that religious cult in Utah that protests army funerals. Give the guy a break, show a little compassion. Or if anything...find a new religion..because I dont think your religion is doing a very good job of making you a good person.

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.

Because some PAPS have a BAD HABIT OF RUNNING UP TO A CHILD AND SNAPPING PICTURES WITHOUT THEIR PARENT'S PERMISSION. For a very small child, this sort of "UNWANTED ATTENTION" IS VERY SCARY!!!

He's always lashing out at someone for something. It's really getting boring with him protesting so very, very much.

Anyone ever watch the video of Tom Cruise accepting some Scientology Award? In it he says "Are you guys ready to clean this place up?" When he says clean this place up, does he mean members cutting themselves off from other family members because they won't join the Church too? How is that "cleaning" things up? I wish someone with some real cajones in the media would ask Good Old Tom about the disconnection many members have with their loved ones and why he is able to still have contact with his family members? And how "cleaning things up" can have any impact if members don't ever speak to their family members? Makes sense to me...I guess the "media" is too afraid of inturbulating others or whatever that wacko cult calls it.

You mean "not abandonded Suri" like Stallone "didn't abandon Sage"? Ewwwwww. Crappy attorney too. Boasts about two photo opportunities in two days to "prove" Tom is a good dad? GUILTY on all counts Mr. Cruise and get a new attorney. The both of you are two cheeseballs.

i wouldn't here about these stories except for the fact that Cruise threatens to sue, and then they are everywhere. He would be better of ignoring them, although his ego doesn't allow that!

Yup    

Don't know who to believe about this anymore. What I do know is I severely dislike the supermarket tabloids like this one. They can all rot for all I care...
