Tom Cruise’s powerhouse attorney Bert Fields has lashed out at Katie Holmes accusing her and her legal team of “playing the media.”

The high-profile lawyer spoke to the BBC on Thursday about the impending divorce battle between the former couple and their fight for custody of Suri, their six-year-old daughter together.

“Tactically we can’t say where Tom will file a divorce case and if he’ll be seeking joint custody of Suri,” Fields said.

“We are letting ‘the other side’ (Katie and her team), play the media until they wear everyone out and then we’ll have something to say.”

And to be clear on how the high-level Scientologist plans on taking the high road, Fields says Tom will be handling things in his own way.

“It’s not Tom’s style to do this publicly. He is really sad about what’s happening,” Fields told BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat.

Tom returned to L.A. earlier this week where he had a “solemn” celebration of his 50th birthday with his two older children Isabella and Connor.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Tom will likely file rival divorce papers in California at some point in his bid to get joint custody of Suri, but proceedings will remain in New York for now because he has to “adhere” to the original petition.
