Tom Cruise Defamation Lawsuit Against Tabloid Publisher Settled

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The scandalous $50 million defamation lawsuit Tom Cruise levied against tabloid publisher Bauer Publishing has been settled with scant few details available.

Tom was livid at being portrayed as a deadbeat dad who abandoned his daughter Suri during his divorce from Katie Holmes, and sued the publisher.

News of the suit’s resolution came via an e-mail from Lindsay Ferraro, PR director for Bauer celebrity gossip magazines, In Touch and Life & Style.

“[The lawsuit] has been settled,” she said of the deal between the two parties. “Terms of the settlement were not disclosed and will remain confidential.”

So after a deposition that gave us insight into Scientology, Suri, Tom's divorce and Cruise (sort of) likening himself to a soldier in Afghanistan ... that's it.

Ferraro continued: “[Neither Bauer nor the magazines] intended to communicate that Tom Cruise had cut off all ties and abandoned his daughter."

Cruise called the Suri assertions “patently false” in court last month, claiming he had not “cut [her] out . . . physically, emotionally, financially or otherwise.”

Because the suit was dismissed “with prejudice,” it cannot be refiled. Each side agreed to the deal and was responsible for their own legal fees.
