Tom Cruise reached an unspecified agreement this week with Bauer Publishing and has since instructed a California federal court to dismiss a $50 million defamation lawsuit. Litigation commenced after articles in Life & Style, and In Touch, made claims that the actor had abandoned his youngest daughter Suri following his divorce from Katie Holmes. Cruise and Bauer issued this joint statement: “Bauer publishing never intended to communicate that Tom Cruise had cut off all ties and abandoned his daughter, Suri, and regret if anyone drew that inference from anything they published. . . .
