Hollywood hunk Tom Cruise is reportedly contemplating suing US magazine Life + Style, for falsely claiming that he had ended his relationship with his pregnant fiancee Katie Holmes.
According to his lawyer Bert Fields, the 43 year-old star was enraged by the report, which alleged that he has finally called off his engagement with Holmes, 26, and is merely keeping up the pretence of togetherness for good publicity.
Cruise, on the other hand, has reacted vehemently by issuing an immediate denial, and is also expected to meet his lawyer Fields this week to discuss possible action against the publication, reports Contactmusic.
"This is a disgusting and malicious story," said Fields quoting the words of the Mission Impossible star.
"It is unequivocally false and I have already demanded a retraction. 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. But if it was up to me, I would sue," he added.
However, despite Cruise's assertions, Life + Style say they stand by their story 100 per cent.
