Tom Cruise Reps

Accuse Katie of Screwing Tom Over In Tabloids

Part of Tom Cruise's lawsuit against two tabloids reads like one of his spy movies -- with Tom's publicity team accusing Katie Holmes of espionage ... as in working directly with the tabs to publish stories skewering Tom as a horrible father.

In emails to Tom's legal team ... his publicist Amanda Lundberg fingers specific people in Katie's camp -- including publicists and hair/makeup people -- for feeding stories to "In Touch."

Amanda accuses her #1 suspect of "speaking to the press constantly. She is the one saying -- K[atie] is disciplinarian and T[om] is spoiling and so on." 

Amanda also directly accuses Katie's publicist, saying ... "leslee sloan [sic] calls the paparazzi every time K gets ready to leave the building as the doormen are always surprised how they suddenly show up when she is about to leave."

The emails were submitted as part of Tom's $50 million suit against the publisher of "In Touch" and "Life & Style" ... for allegedly defaming him with headlines about him abandoning Suri after the divorce.

Tom's publicist Amanda also emailed Katie's people directly, accusing them of remaining silent about a story that claimed Tom broke a promise to Suri. In the email, Amanda demands ... "Can you guys comment and deny this as we all know this is not true."

At the end of the email Amanda begs ... "Help?!!!"  

In short, Tom's people are bitching that Katie's people play dirty pool ... allegedly planting negative stories ... or refusing to blunt the ones they know to be false.

Truth is ... this kinda thing happens every day behind the scenes in Hollywood.

I doubt this is true. In Touch makes up their own facts.

If Kati'e publicist calls the paparazzi every time Katie leaves the building, so what? What does that have to do with Katie going after Scientology? That's just a photo op that has nothing to do with Tom or Scientology. Sounds to me like Tom's attorneys are grasping at straws.

How frustrating when, even the wealthy and omniscient xenu can't control the media.

Can't blame Katie for leaving Tom. He's arrogant and only USES the media for photo ops to portray what a good father he is. Not that I'm saying he's a bad father. Katie is always gracious, constantly with Suri, and by all accounts really cares about Suri. Can't blame her for wanting to get Suri out of that Scientology Clan.

I know everybody is going to hate me for this. But she did use the media to her advantage. If she was so against this religion then why did she have a kid with him? It's not like he hides he is in this religion.

Wow ...    

Sadly, if any of it is true, Katie didn't have much of a choice. She wasn't just divorcing her husband, but an entire organization who has been known to harass, stalk and let's not forget all of those lawsuits - anyone who dares to escape. So, I applaud Katie for using anything including the paps to keep her safe and enable her to leave the cult.

Oh please. Tom has to run to this Amanda woman to fight his battles? What does she really care anyway? He is paying her a fortune to make dumb statements to the press. Shoot...how do I get her job?
