Tom Cruise has filed a $50 million lawsuit on Wednesday against celebrity magazines Life & Style and In Touch for claiming that he abandoned his daughter Suri since his divorce to Katie Holmes.

"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," Cruise's lawyer Bert Fields said in a statement, according to Today Entertainment.

The Mission Impossible star, 50, is heated over two cover stories published by the magazines in July and September -- reading "Abandoned by Daddy" and "Abandoned by Her Dad" -- which reported that Suri, 6, has gone over 44 days without seeing her father.

Suri is the only child that Holmes birthed while married to Tom for 6 years, and sought sole custody of her after filing for divorce in June.

According to Today, Fields said that Cruise is not typically a fan of litigation and rarely resorts to that measure.

"He's not a litigious guy. But when these sleazy peddlers try to make money with disgusting lies about his relationship with his child, you bet he's going to sue," he said, adding that if he were to win the case, Cruise would "undoubtedly give the money to charity."

    It was a low-blow indeed from these bottom feeders. Hope they nail 'em to the wall for this sh*t.

    Go after them Tom. Damn right. I would like to see a magazine that is dedicated to digging up and publishing ~true~ information on the lives of the people who publish rumor/"scandal" rags. I bet that stuff would be far more interesting since ~they~ are likely the real ones with secrets in their closets. Think of it: would you want to be friends with anyone who worked for or ran one of these rumor/"scandal" mags? What does that say about their integrity? What do they possibly have in store for you someday?
