Cruise is accused of conspiring with his lawyer and a now-imprisoned private investigator to unlawfully record telephone conversations. The action star faced three hours of questioning on Tuesday at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in New York, Radar has learned exclusively. Cruise is being sued for $5 million by magazine editor Michael Davis Sapir who claims the actor and his lawyer Bert Fields had private investigator Anthony Pellicano tap his phone. Pellicano was accused by federal authorities of wiretapping numerous people and is currently in federal prison after convictions on several charges. The Sapir lawsuit was filed in 2009 but on Tuesday Cruise finally had to answer questions in person, and was deposed by Sapir’s side. “It was all very secretive,” a source told Radar. “This battle has been ongoing and getting to the point where Cruise had to sit for a deposition obviously took a long time. PHOTOS: Tom Cruise Clubbing With His Kids The lawsuit has its roots in a different legal action from more than a decade ago. Cruise sued Sapir in 2001 after Sapir scandalously offered a $500,000 reward for video evidence that Cruise is gay. He later claimed he received an email with a video. The suit was settled and Sapir admitted that there was no tape showing Cruise in gay activity. But Sapir now claims that Cruise conspired with Fields and Pellicano to illegally record conversations between Sapir and his attorney, gaining a strategic advantage in the 2001 action. Sapir claims that Cruise learned through those conversations that Sapir's attorney worried the action star had too many financial resources for the editor to fight him, even though the attorney believed Sapir had a good case. The plaintiff alleges that Cruise had a history of hiring Pellicano to conduct wiretaps and claims that during Cruise’s divorce from Nicole Kidman the PI wiretapped her and discussed what was heard with some of his employees. “Cruise has denied any wrongdoing all along,” the source told Radar. Fields did not return Radar’s call for comment but has previously denied any wrongdoing and said Pellicano was not involved in the 2001 Sapir case." So Tom, who plays at make-believe for a living and belongs to a cult that promotes lying at whim (except when being audited, of course) if the scientologist in question feels at all threatened by telling the truth and wire-taps anyone, including each other, at will, of course will tell the truth about his private detective doing illegal wiretapping! His entire wardrobe of pants, where ever he has wardrobes in this world, must have simultaneously combusted when he responded to these prosecutors. I just hope that this could be grounds for perjury. I wonder who scientology is attacking in this scenario? Those prosecutors had better watch out for their cats and dogs and give their family, friends and co-workers a heads-up about the lies and smear campaigns directed against them that are going to be arriving soon. Wouldn't it be sweet if Tom perjured himself and got sent to the pokey for a bit? It will never happen, but what a scenario. Then he could come out and make a movie about how he won over all those nasty prisoners with touch assists, etc. St. Tommy strikes again! He always wanted to be a priest - what a ministry a bunch of hardened felons would make. He could try out his slamming people against a wall techniques that he learned at Mismanage's feet (and fists). Then the whole prison could become "at cause" over the guards and walk right out. When you're in prison, you've already had plenty of practice yelling at inanimate objects, like the bars to your cell.
