Tom Cruise has initiated a defamation lawsuit against Bauer Publishing, the company behind Life & Style and InTouch Magazines. Each of these magazines reported stories claiming that Cruise’s young daughter, Suri, felt abandoned by her father as a result of his divorce from Katie Holmes. Cruise denies that Suri was abandoned by him last summer, and defended himself in an affidavit filed in Federal Court on Tuesday.

Cruise stated “The assertion that I ‘abandoned’ Suri after my divorce is patently false. I have in

no way cut Suri out of my life — whether physically, emotionally, financially or otherwise.” His lawyers are attempting to convince the publisher to reveal its sources that support the claims made by Life & Style and InTouch. However, Bauer Publishing is not backing down. The company issued a statement Thursday claiming that both magazines “stand behind the reporting and articles at issue in Mr. Cruise’s action.”

Lawyers representing the tabloid have argued that Cruise will not win the lawsuit because he is a public figure and neither of the magazines acted with actual malice. An example of one of the articles in question is from July 18th 2012 and reads “SURI IN TEARS, ABANDONED BY HER DAD” along with a photo of the child. There was no accompanying story to support or explain the headline. According to the lawsuit, Cruise’s lawyer Bert Fields sent two letters informing the publisher that the headlines were false and demanding retractions, but he was refused. Cruise’s lawsuit is asking for $50 million in damages from the publisher.

The hearing in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles is set for November 26 for arguments about the tabloids’ sources for the stories.
