With Toledo as Star witness, will TomKat sue?
One day after news broke that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes had called it quits, a lawyer for Tom Cruise is saying they might sue the magazine that originally reported the rumor. "I will be sitting down with Tom in the next couple of days to discuss this story and ultimately it's his call as to whether we bring a lawsuit," Bert Fields told Star Magazine in an online article today. "But if it was up to me, I would sue."
Life & Style magazine, which first published the news of the split in their latest edition, says it stands by its story.
Back in Holmes' home town of Toledo, Ohio, friends of Katie's also are telling the Star the rumor isn't tru e. "T here hasn't been any talk around Toledo that they broke up," one said.
Stop the presses! Rewrite page one! New headline: "Toledo confirms it: TomKat together forever!" How could we, the evil rumor-mongering public, ever have doubted their love? For shame!
