The Tom Cruise Smear Machine: Accusations From His Deposition You Haven't Heard - 2013-11-08
Hundreds of pages of court documents in Tom Cruise's $50 million lawsuit against Bauer Media, publishers of In Touch and Life & Style magazines, were put into a public court file recently, and yesterday, RadarOnline pounced on a short excerpt from a deposition given by Cruise.
We have more pages from Cruise's deposition than Radar posted, as well as hundreds more documents which Cruise's lawyers were able to pry out of Bauer — including internal e-mails between employees at the magazines as they were putting together the stories that Cruise found so offensive. In all, there's some pretty fascinating material here beyond the revelations that became public yesterday. You've probably already heard that Cruise admitted to being separated from his daughter for more than three months after his divorce, and that he also admitted, somewhat vaguely, that Scientology was one "aspect" to the reason he and Katie Holmes split up.
Cruise is suing family-owned Germany-based Bauer Media for two headlines. On July 30, 2012, Life & Style Weekly put the words "Suri In Tears: Abandoned By Her Dad" on its cover, and on October 1, 2012, In Touch Weekly had the headline "Abandoned By Daddy" on its front page.
