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?

Tom Cruise is suing magazines inTouch and Life & Style for accusing him of “abandoning Suri.”
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?

Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise got married in 1990 and stayed together for 11 years before ultimately divorcing, and Nicole has remained pretty mum on the details of their relationship for the past decade. However, the topic came up in a new interview with Vanity Fair, for some reason, and she pretty much admitted that while it all seemed pretty romantic and even intoxicating because they were in the throes of fame, she actually didn’t love him all that much. Ouch!
“I was so young,” Nicole Kidman tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Sam Kashner in the December-issue cover story, reflecting back on her marriage to Tom Cruise when she was just 23 years old. “And you know, with no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I’ve met my great love now. And I really did not know if that was going to happen. I wanted it, but I didn’t want it for a while, because I didn’t want to jump from one relationship to another. I had a lot of time alone, which was really, really good, because I was a child, really, when I got married. And I needed to grow up.”
When asked about the unreal level of fame she endured during her marriage to Cruise, Kidman says, “There is something about that sort of existence that, if you really focus on each other and you’re in that bubble, it’s very intoxicating, because it’s just the two of you. And there is only one other person that’s going through it. So it brings you very close, and it’s deeply romantic. I’m sure Brad and Angelina have that—because there’s nobody else that understands it except that person who’s sleeping right next to you.”
Nicole is married to Keith Urban now, so that’s obviously who she considers to be her “great love”, which is fine and well. To be honest, I think Nicole and Tom did pretty well – 11 years is nothing to shake a stick at in Hollywood, but it again begs the issue: can Hollywood relationships last, especially between two massively famous people at the height of their careers? Obviously Nicole and Keith are doing pretty well, but who knows if it’ll stay that way.
