Cruise's lawyer, Bert Fields told TMZ, "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."
"Tom doesn't go around suing people,” Fields continued. “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."
Fields also slammed Life & Style, saying, "These serial defamers are foreign owned companies with their global headquarters in Hamburg. They take money from unsuspecting Americans by selling their malicious garbage. Having to pay a libel judgment may slow them down."
The lawyer said any money Cruise receives will go to charity.
Actor Tom Cruise filed a $50-million lawsuit against Life & Style magazine for reporting he had abandoned daughter Suri Cruise.
