Tom Cruise attorney threatens National Enquirer lawsuit; Kristen Chenoweth injured on set

A morning mix of entertainment headlines...

Tom Cruise’s lawyer has threatened the National Enquirer with lawsuit over a cover story that claims his home is a “house of horrors,” where Katie Holmes led a “tortured life” and Suri Cruise was forced to stay in a “tiny, windowless room” for five months. Cruise’s attorney, Bert Fields, calls the story “disgraceful and lurid” in a letter to American Media, parent company of the Enquirer; he also notes that if the tabloid runs the story — and it appears to have done so — it will lead to “hundreds of millions of dollars of professional and personal damages” to Cruise, for which American Media will be held responsible. Eek. (The Hollywood Reporter)
