Tom Cruise suspected that Katie Holmes used the paparazzi to her advantage, with the goal of portraying him as a cruel nut job, according to treasure trove of emails.

A brutal back and forth exchange between the stars' camps that often featured their 7-year-old daughter, Suri Cruise, in the center, came to light for the first time this week.

Cruise is suing a tabloid, In Touch, for $50 million for claiming he abandoned Suri during the pair's divorce. As such, he was deposed and many revelations were uncovered.

In August 2012, Cruise’s team suspected a tough cover story on the dad’s alleged over-the-top efforts to charm his daughter were planted by Holmes “in true scum form."

Tom's publicist Amanda Lundberg suspected the source of leaked information regarding Cruise taking Suri to Disney World on a private jet was Jeanne Yang, Holmes’ stylist.

Note to all you tabloids: Do not mess with Tom Cruise. He does not view bad celebrity gossip lightly, even if few take your magazines seriously anyway.

He is a man who is very private about his personal life, cares a lot about his reputation, and has more money than small countries. Just leave him be.

Some celebs, such as Kim Kardashian, likely view any publicity as good publicity. Being in the exploitation business, you can sort of see why, too.

Tom Cruise is not in the exploitation business, however, and he is suing celebrity gossip magazine Life & Style for claiming he “abandoned” his daughter.

In the wake of his split from Katie Holmes, Tom says he never turned his back on Suri Cruise, and wants legal payback against L&S for saying he did.

Tom Cruise has had enough.

A tabloid target throughout his career, the A-lister has finally fired back at two supermarket tabloids for alleging that he's a dead beat dad who abandoned daughter Suri following his divorce from Katie Holmes.

Suri Cruise Abandoned

Bert Fields, the star's attorney, has filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Life & Style for its July 30 cover - which screamed SURI IN TEARS, ABANDONED BY HER DAD - and against In Touch for its above headline, which makes the same assertion.

Both publications are owned by Bauer Publishing, which might at least explain their lack of originality.

Tom Cruise's attorney, Bert Fields, demands that the National Enquirer and its parent company, American Media, retract its new cover story about the actor's just-settled divorce from Katie Holmes or face a defamation complaint of epic proportions.

Among other tawdry allegations, the magazine claims Cruise's home was akin to a "house of horrors" and that his estranged wife, Holmes, lived a "tortured life" in a marriage that was a "living nightmare" in virtual lockdown for years.

Taking the Questions

Fields absolutely went OFF on what he said was a "disgraceful and lurid cover with bogus, red and yellow headlines announcing one cruel lie after another about Mr. Cruise and his family" and went on to take them apart one by one:

"Contrary to your headlines, Mr. Cruise has not engaged in any 'abuse' or 'humiliation' of Katie Holmes," he wrote. "Nor has he ever subjected her to any punishments."

"It is also completely untrue that Mr. Cruise ever subjected his wife to relentless verbal abuse, emotional punishment, humiliation and intimidation."

"These are all egregious lies. He did none of these things."

Tom Cruise is reportedly gearing up for a fight.

Having been blindsided last week by his spouse, he is ready for a custody battle over Suri Cruise and preparing to counter-file for divorce in California.

According to celebrity gossip sources, Cruise wants to ensure that Katie doesn't get sole custody of Suri, which she asked for in her New York filing.

Cruise's camp says the divorce can only take place in New York if the marriage occurred there or the spouse has been living there continuously.

Despite the couple owning an N.Y. apartment deeded in her name, he will argue that both live in L.A. and she doesn't meet N.Y. residency requirements.

This is significant as N.Y. courts are perceived as much more likely to award sole custody in a contentious divorce than their California counterparts.

An insider added of Cruise's game plan: "There is absolutely no way that he is going to let Katie have sole custody. The lines are being drawn."

The somewhat surprising Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce came out of nowhere, allegedly prompted by her fear of Scientology groups corrupting Suri.

Tom Cruise Quotes

I was feeling pressed in the interview with Matt Lauer. For me, my issue was really about child drugging. It's not like it is today, like people are really kind of openly talking about this.
