Tom Cruise has made no secret about his willingness to sue if a publication crosses the line. The National Enquirer is about to be reminded of that little fact. His attorney, Bert Fields, says Tom is preparing to sue the National Enquirer over their latest cover story ‘Inside Tom’s House of Horrors!’ According to USA Today, there are mentions of “abuse,” “punishments” and “humiliation” in the story.
That’s really enough to get the gist of it. OUCH. Bert called the story “disgraceful and lurid” and said the story will cause Tom “hundreds of millions of dollars of professional and personal damages, for which we intend to hold American Media, and everyone who participated in the perpetuation of this scurrilous attack, jointly and severally liable” (those are the grounds to be able to actually sue for libel- it has to cause harm). Bert is also demanding the National Enquirer retract the story.
