Tom Cruise has sued two magazine publishers to the tune of $50 million for libel. His ex-wife, Katie Holmes could end up being subpoenaed by German magazine empire Bauer Media, who is the publisher of In Touch and Life & Style.
Should Bauer Media pursue the subpoena for Katie Holmes, she would be in a position to be forced to speak openly about her controversial marriage and divorce from Tom Cruise. A source close to the situation said, “The decision hasn’t been made yet.”
“It’s certainly possible. A decision is likely to be finalized in the next few months.”
Tom Cruise is suing Bauer Media for articles that claimed that Tom Cruise had abandoned his daughter Suri after his surprising divorce from Katie Holmes. In his deposition for the lawsuit, Cruise admitted that part of the reason Katie Holmes filed for divorce was so she and Suri could get away from the Church of Scientology.
Tom Cruise vehemently denies that he abandoned his daughter blaming the time he’s missed with her on divorce. In his September 9 deposition, Cruise admitted that he didn’t see his seven year-old daughter for 110 days.
Cruise went on to say, “Listen, when there is a divorce, things change. It’s not an ideal scene. It’s not an ideal situation.”
Many legal obstacles are in Katie Holmes’ way should she be subpoenaed if she did in fact sign a confidentiality agreement as a part of her divorce.
