Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise has threatened to file a lawsuit against the owners of a T-shirt company that allegedly planned to use his image for promoting their garments.

The Top Gun actor's lawyer Aaron Moss has issued a stern warning to the people behind Addictiontee.com, citing false advertising and consumer fraud in a bid to thwart their design plans, reports contactmusic.com.

It is thought the threatened legal action centres on the company's plans to use a picture of Cruise apparently wearing one of the controversial T-shirts.

"...we believe that such photograph is a fake that has been 'photoshopped' or otherwise manipulated to make it look like he's (Cruise) wearing your t-shirt," Moss wrote in the official warning letter.

The clothing firm's bosses, however, are undeterred and are even considering taking inspiration from the legal threat for a new T-shirt design.

A spokesman for Addictiontee.com said: "We're going into production of a T-shirt inspired by Cruise's attorney with the words 'legal addict' on the front and 'I sue everybody' on the back."
