Tom Cruise sued the publisher of Life & Style and In Touch Weekly in October for defamation over stories claiming he had “abandoned” his 6 year-old daughter Suri following hi divorce with Katie Holmes.
But Bauer Publishing co fired back against Cruise’s $50 million lawsuit.
In an answer to the lawsuit, Bauer asserts that it’s not liable for damages because, among other things, “ome or all of the allegedly defamatory statements complained of by the plaintiff are true or substantially true.”
And they added that Cruise “cannot prove that he has suffered any compensable damage as a result of any actionable statement published by the Bauer Defendants,” and that he is “a public figure and the Bauer Defendants did not act with actual malice.”
Cruise’s attorney has not responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
