This isn't risky business — this is vindication!
Sister magazines Life & Style and In Touch both published articles that implied Tom Cruise had abandoned his daughter Suri!
But it could be their headlines are writing checks their bodies can't cash!
Because now Jack Reacher is reaching for his lawyer's number and suing the mags for libel! Tom's lawyer Bert Fields says:
"Tom is a caring father who dearly loves Suri. She's a vital part of his life and always will be. To say he has 'abandoned' her is a vicious lie. To say it in lurid headlines with a tearful picture of Suri is reprehensible."
A huge star like Tom cruise is a magnet for rumors, but Tom's lawyer says this twofer crossed the line! He says:
"Tom doesn't go around suing people. He's not a litigious guy. But when these sleaze peddlers try to make money with disgusting lies about his relationship with his child, you bet he's going to sue."
So how much does Tom want from the magazines' publisher?
He doesn't need it obviously; he just wants to make them pay. After they show him the money, Tom plans to donate it to charity.
