Tom Cruise's team may have inadvertently made the shocking admission that they were spying on Katie Holmes and daughter Suri in the aftermath of their split in leaked emails obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.com.
The blockbuster revelation comes in a line in which one of Cruise's top aides told the rest of the team she thinks Holmes’ publicists had a hotline to New York-based photographers and would call as soon as the ex-Dawson’s Creek star planned on leaving her New York City apartment building.
"Katie's publicist calls the paparazzi every time K gets ready to leave the building as the doormen are always surprised how they suddenly show up when she is about to leave," Cruise's publicist Amanda Lundberg alleged in the email dated Aug. 8, 2012 — unaware that she was pointing the finger back at herself.
If Lundberg knows the doormen are allegedly "always surprised" when the photogs show up, it can be deduced that she (or another member of Cruise's team) has actually been speaking with the doormen.
Otherwise, was she was just caught in a lie?
The string of leaked emails provide an inside glimpse into the well-oiled 'Team Cruise' machine who alleged Holmes' team helped guide smear campaigns, the leaking of private and sensitive information and even setting up staged paparazzi photos in an apparent game of one-upmanship.
As Radar exclusively reported earlier this week, Cruise’s explosive deposition on September 9 finally revealed that Holmes' decision to end the marriage, at least in part, was due to his allegiance to the Church of Scientology.
"And Ms. Holmes has never indicated in any way that was one of the reasons she left you? …To protect Suri from Scientology?” the lawyer asked.
Finally, Cruise admitted, “Did she say that? That was one of the assertions, yes.”
Radar has been instrumental in exposing the combative battle that brewed between the Mission: Impossible star and his wife of five-and-a-half years, behind-the-scenes and away from the glare of their fans, in court documents and emails included in the discovery phase of Cruise's defamation lawsuit against Bauer Media.
