Tom Cruise's Lawyer Threatens to Sue over "National Enquirer" Cover

ABC/RICK ROWELL(LOS ANGELES) -- Tom Cruise's lawyer is not happy after laying his eyes on a new National Enquirer cover article that claims the Mission: Impossible star is a "monster" who held his "abused" ex-wife Katie Holmes and their daughter Suri in a "House of Horrors."

Attorney Bert Fields sent a letter Wednesday to Enquirer publisher American Media slamming the story, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which obtained a copy of the letter.

"Your cover announces, as a fact, that 'THE REAL TOM CRUISE IS A MONSTER,'" Fields writes.  "Mr. Cruise is certainly not a 'monster.'  He is a caring father, a hardworking actor and, above all, an honest, decent man...This is the most defamatory cover the Enquirer has ever done."

The article explains Suri was "forced" into a five-month stay in a "tiny, windowless room." 

Fields' letter counters with, "Mr. Cruise's home in Telluride, like his home in Beverly Hills, is a pleasant and loving home," and says of Suri, "She spent most of her time with Tom and Katie.  She slept in a nursery adjoining their bedroom.  It has a window."

Fields wants a full retraction and apology for "each and every one of [the] false allegations about Mr. Cruise."

Bobby Brown: My Daughter Doesn’t Do Drugs

Tiffany Rose/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- For Bobby Brown, a picture doesn’t always speak a thousand words.

In an interview with ABC News on Monday, the infamous R&B singer denied that Bobbi Kristina, his daughter with Whitney Houston, has ever used drugs. This month, The National Enquirer published photographs that appear to show the 18-year-old snorting cocaine.

“I don’t know anything about that,” he said when asked about the photos. “My daughter, she doesn’t, she doesn’t do that.”

Bobbi Kristina defended herself on Twitter a day after the photos came out, saying she was “set up” by a money-hungry ex-boyfriend because of “a horrible relationship that went sour.” “It’s really not what it looks like,” she wrote.

Brown also revealed that “there will be a New Edition reunion sometime in the near future.” He shot to fame in the 1980s as part of the R&B band; despite the fact that he was voted out of the group in 1986, Brown said they’re eager to perform together again.
