Tom Cruise is embroiled in a $5 million lawsuit with a magazine editor. The actor is accused of wiretapping telephone conversations and was brought in for questioning on Tuesday. According to Radar Online, Cruise, his lawyer Bert Fields and a private investigator named Anthony Pellicano conspired to unlawfully tap Michael Davis Sapir’s phone. Pellicano, who is now imprisoned, had already been convicted on several charges for wiretapping numerous people. The Sapir lawsuit, which has its roots in a different legal action, was actually filed in 2009 but Cruise was only able to be questioned Tuesday. He spent three hours at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in New York answering questions. “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 that obviously took a long time.” Sapir first dragged Cruise into legal action back in 2001. He claimed he had a video evidence of the actor in a gay activity and was willing to sell it for $500,000. Cruise sued the editor but settled it after Sapir admitted that there was no such video.
