Umm, this is NOT what we were expecting from TLC.

Here’s one less drama to see played out in court.
Well, they’ve settled all of their disputes, and the lawsuit has been dismissed!
"Bauer Publishing, as well as In Touch and Life & Style magazines, never intended to communicate that Tom Cruise had cut off all ties and abandoned his daughter, Suri, and regret if anyone drew that inference from anything they published.”
Things were getting cray cray when Cruise had to prove malice and looked into Bauer’s Nazi ties, since he’s a Scientologist. Bauer researched Suri’s mental health records, how Scientology affected Tom's relationship with his daughter and how much contact he had with her.
In the end, it was all a moot point and they settled everything themselves, with each side agreeing to pay their own legal fees.
This seems like a huge waste of time for everyone, but at least no further harm was done!
