Tom Cruise is suing tabloid magazines for saying he abandoned Suri, and part of that means he had to sit down for a deposition, and that means TMZ got a hold of it and we get to read some of the questions and answers. Hooray! From TMZ:
In the deposition … Cruise squirmed in his chair as the lawyer for the magazine repeatedly asked if Katie fled their marriage because of the Church. Cruise hemmed and hawed, suggesting it wasn’t true, and then the lawyer asked whether “Katie Holmes left you in part to protect Suri from Scientology.”
Cruise answered: “Did she say that? That was one of the assertions, yes.”
Cruise also admitted that Suri is NOT a member of Scientology anymore.
So it sounds like Katie really did split because of Scientology. That’s not news but it’s good to hear.
Not sure if this is worth it, are ya, Mr. Cruise?

Okay, let’s just get one thing out of the way: Abandoning Suri is an incredible name for a band.
Glad we got that out of the way.
I’m going to be very careful of what I say about Mr. Cruise, so here’s what TMZ is reporting:
Cruise just filed docs in his $50 million lawsuit against the publisher of “Life & Style” and “In Touch” magazines for cover stories that claimed he “abandoned” Suri after divorcing Katie in June 2012.
In the docs, Cruise says … “I have in no way cut Suri out of my life — whether physically, emotionally, financially or otherwise.”
He goes on to cite specific times he saw his daughter in person in the months following the divorce, and says … “even during the times when I was working overseas and was not able to see Suri in person, we were (and continue to be) extremely close.”
The docs are pretty revealing … since Tom has said next to nothing publicly about the divorce from Katie.
I will say though, that Tom Cruise is always way too eager to sue. Why does he care so much?

Though summer’s technically not over, I think it’s time to take a look back at everything that happened these summer months. There was a LOT. What do you think was the most shocking? The most WTF? The best fashion moment? Let’s vote!
In case you need a refresher, here are some links to these stories: (more…)

Kids grow up so fast these days — little Suri Cruise is already having her first paparazzi fight. I remember when she was but a baby on the cover of Vanity Fair. And look at her now! I think this reminds us all of our first scuffle with a paparazzo, doesn’t it? I guess no matter who our parents are, we all go though the same things growing up.
Suri and mother Katie Holmes and some random kid were leaving a hotel, and were immediately surrounded by the talented and beautiful paparazzi. Suri, understandably agitated, shouted, “We’re TRYING to GET in the CAR!” No wire hangers for this chick, am I right? This one grown man will just not let up, walking in step with the trio, shoving a pen in her face, begging for Suri Cruise’s autograph. Guy, what the f-ck are you going to do with an 7 year-old’s autograph? She wasn’t even in Home Alone.
Suri shouts, “STOP IT.” Then, and we can’t tell if it’s the same grown-ass man because it’s off camera, an adult male shouts, “Bye Suri, you little brat!” And then a second grown man says, “Whoa whoa whoa whoa” and it’s a walk-off. It’s a walk-off. This second man then tries to defend Suri’s honor saying, “When you’re a father, bro, when you’re a father, it’s a different thing.” The first guy then calls 7 year-old Suri Cruise, “a bitch.”
I wrote out the video for you because watching it made me cringe very, very hard. So fair warning if you want to see it for yourself.
I kind of wish that guy was around to sass Will Smith’s children. No cursing at them though. Because come on, dude.
P.S. Welcome to your nightmarish future, North West!

Suri Cruise is a 7 year-old girl with famous parents (Katie and Tom, in case you’ve been living in a gorgeous cave) who probably doesn’t even dress herself and yet reportedly signed around a $2 million deal to design her own clothing line.
This can’t be true because if this is true…do I even have to explain why this would be absurd? I’m not.
From The Sun via The Telegraph:
According to tabloid The Sun, the seven-year-old daughter of Hollywood actors Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes will put her name to a fashion line called ‘Suri’.
The fashion-loving youngster, who was reported to have amassed a £100,000 shoe collection by the time she was five, will be paid £1.5million for the collection aimed at young girls.
A department store in New York, where Suri resides with her mother, will stock the line initially. If it is successful, it will be rolled out across stores in North America.
A source said of Suri: “This is a really nice hobby for her, its certainly not going to take over her life. Most girls dream of being able to make their own clothes, this just means her drawings will now become a reality.”
Apparently, the initial idea was for Suri to have her own blog but the concept evolved.
SHE’S 7 YEARS-OLD, SHE DOESN’T NEED A HOBBY. HER HOBBY IS BEING 7 YEARS-OLD.
I cannot even. Everything about that quote is ridiculous, as is this entire thing. Which is why her parents’ rep says it’s false. From The NY Daily News:
Alas for fashion-forward second-graders everywhere, Suri Cruise is not launching her own clothing line. At least not yet.
A spokesperson for Cruise, the daughter of actors Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, told the Daily News that report from The Sun claiming that Suri had inked a $2.3 million deal to create a fashion label ‘isn’t true.’
At one points there were claims she was writing a children’s book. What the hell, everyone.
I was going to include some photos of Miss Suri’s ~~fashion forward style~~ but as I was collecting the photos I realized, this is weird.

In what is probably the most boring celebrity story you’ll read today (news is slow, okay?), Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have apparently been fighting over little Suri. Tom wants to see her more often, but Katie lives in New York and doesn’t think she should keep flying to London, where Tom is currently wrapping a movie, all the time. Instead, Tom should come to the east coast to see his daughter. An argument ensued, Katie got tough, yada yada.
The actress, 34, is worried about the number of hours the six-year-old’s spending flying between her home in NYC and dad Tom, 50, who’s just wrapped his latest film in London.
‘Katie had to put her foot down,’ says a pal.
‘She realises Tom wants to see his girl, but she feels he should work round Suri’s schedule and come to them rather than the other way round.
‘They’ve now agreed Suri won’t have flights longer than eight hours.’
First of all, I’ve flown from NY to London more times than I can recount and it never takes eight hours. It’s seven on a bad day and a little over six if you catch a good tail wind, so I’m not sure how this comes into play. That being said, she’s a tiny person who is presumably going to school and I agree, Tom should use one of those Scientology alien spaceships (that’s how that whole thing works, right?) to come and see her.
This story seemingly had a happy resolution, but it must be bullshit because who in the hell would report it to the press as if anyone cared? That’s like me calling TMZ to let them know that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck couldn’t decide between KFC or Burger King for lunch but eventually Ben compromised and went to BK because he knows Jen loves her Whoppers. I mean, who cares?
