Tom Cruise accuses Katie Holmes of baiting paparazzi

Raymond Hall/FilmMagicActress Katie Holmes sighted helping Suri Cruise to scooter in Chelsea on October 8

Other than his well-publicized connection to Scientology, Tom Cruise doesn’t talk much about his personal life, so we were all ears to hear some statements from his recent deposition in his lawsuit against the publishers of Life & Style.

According to Radar Online, some emails, part of the discovery phase of the case, outline what the Cruise camp alleges was a plan by Katie Holmes and her people to paint her as a particularly doting mother and him as a lesser father.

Apparently, paparazzi were invited to photograph Holmes and her daughter together in an attempt to keep images of them prominent in the public eye, while pictures of Suri only with her dad would be much more rare.

Could it be true? Holmes doesn’t seem like the sort to be vindictive.

The deposition also revealed that one reason she left Cruise was to shield her daughter from Scientology. Does that sound like a mom who puts her own needs above her child? Meanwhile, Cruise has been known for his efforts to manipulate the media.
