MSNBC.com reports that Tom Cruise is planning to drop the $100 million lawsuit filed against porn star–wrestler Kyle Bradford. The suit was filed when Bradford allegedly claimed to have had an affair with the actor, a statement that was picked up by a French publication and spread from there. Bradford denies not only making the comments but ever having met Cruise. A legal source is quoted as saying, “Tom isn’t really planning to take Bradford to court. The guy doesn’t have any money, and he’s very publicly said the stuff about him and Tom isn’t true. That’s all Tom really wants: to set the record straight.” Cruise’s publicist, however, claims the case is going forward because “somebody has to answer for it.”
