The Paper Alleges Who Could Be Suri's Father

Tom Cruise and his lawyer are bringing out the big guns to fight the stories the National Enquirer is publishing about the divorce, Cruise's parenting and whether or not he really is Suri's father.

Tom CruiseThe Tom Cruise vs. National Enquirer battle seems to have just begun.

Last week, Cruise’s lawyer sent a letter to the National Enquirer’s publisher, American Media, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“Tom Cruise's lawyer is threatening to sue the National Enquirer over a cover story that claims the actor is a ‘monster’ who ‘abused’ wife Katie Holmes and subjected daughter Suri to a five-month stay in a ‘tiny, windowless room,’” said the website.

The letter from the lawyer claims that because of the story, the actor will lose "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," reports the Hollywood Reporter.

The letter continues:

"Your cover announces, as a fact, that 'THE REAL TOM CRUISE IS A MONSTER.' Mr. Cruise is certainly not a 'monster.' He is a caring father, a hardworking actor and, above all, an honest, decent man.”

But now, Cruise is fighting another claim by the Enquirer. The paper is alleging that there may be questions as to Suri Cruise’s paternity.

“A source claims that he ‘will be most disturbed over suppositions that Suri will someday ask him to take a paternity test to prove he’s her father,’" said Entertainment Wise.

The new story is showing that the National Enquirer is not heeding the threat of Cruise’s lawyer, and is going to keep publishing storied about the actor.

“The publication adds that Josh Hartnett, Joshua Jackson, Chris Klein and even deceased Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard could be Suri's ‘real father,' who is mothered by Katie Holmes,” said Entertainment Wise.

No suit has been filed yet by Cruise’s lawyer, but they want to let the publication know they are serious. The letter also threatened to "call the Court's attention to your long record of printing and publishing malicious lies about celebrities in order to enrich yourselves at their expense."

Anyone with a brain and eyes can see that child is clearly Joshua Jacksons. Katie went to see him in London after her split with Klein and weeks before she signed up with Tom. Look at younger pictures of josh next to Suri, they have the same dimple,eyes, and nose. It ain't rocket science people.

Tom Cruise is doing this just to exert his Miscavige influenced 'muscle' because he cant stand to lose or not be number one. I wish Katie could get far away from his cult, his ego and entourage. She has the brains that a child cant be out till 3 am every night, get whatever she wants and dress like a 20 year old. Katie is trying to instill some normalcy in Suri's life but I'm afraid Little Big Man is going to fight her on this for 'billions' of Xenu years. Get a life Tom and leave the normal people alone.

I'd like to be the voice of reason here and say that an anonymous source does not count as reliable information, and the Enquirer better have all its facts together or they could be very financially sorry. Libel suits are no joke, and Tom Cruise has got plenty of money to blow on good lawyers.

Oh, he's "threatening" to sue. LOL! Just sue if it's not true. Go to court. Prove your paternity. Of course he's not the father. Katie was already pregnant when she met him. Just ask Chris Klein. If you don't believe this go look for the pictures of the Katie with the fake pregnancy belly. They are ridiculous. She had Suri at least a month before they said she did because the timeline didn't fit with their made up story. Good for the Enquirer. This had to come out some time.
