The war between Tom Cruise and the publisher of Life & Style Magazine and In Touch is officially underway.

The diminutive dandy is suing them for $50 million for saying he “abandoned” his daughter Suri after he split up with Katie Holmes.

According to TMZ, Cruise filed the first documents in the case, stating he has “in no way cut Suri out of my life — whether physically, financially or otherwise.”

Although Holmes has primary custody of the child, Cruise insists he is in constant contact with his daughter, even if he is far away on a shoot.

Both magazines are dubious in the ol’ gossip department. In Touch periodically claims that Jennifer Aniston is preggers, for example. At press time, she ain’t and never has been.
