Sapir Sentence Examples
Seems that the whole "I'm not a spy in real life, I just play one on the big screen" saying was lost on Tom Cruise as he is now being sued for five million bucks for wiretapping magazine editor Michael Sapir's phone conversations.
Sapir goes on to accuse Cruise of hiring Anthony Pellicano, king of illegal wiretapping (and serving a 15 year sentence for it), to illegally tap into Sapir's phone conversations during a lawsuit Cruise brought against Sapir.
Back in 2001, rumor had it that Sapir was shopping an alleged video tape to various tabloid television outlets "proving" that Tom Cruise was gay.
Cruise got wind of it and filed a defamation suit against Sapir.
