Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise has been dragged into the trial of a celebrity private investigator accused of illegal practice.
Anthony Pellicano and former Los Angeles cop Mark Arneson are charged with running an illegal wiretapping and information-gathering network. Famous names Steven Seagal, Farrah Fawcett, Garry Shandling and Warren Beatty have already been linked with the case.
Now it has emerged that Cruise once hired Pellicano–on the advice of his longtime lawyer Bert Fields–to find out the identity of people following him, according to court testimony.
The P.I.’s assistant Lily LeMasters claimed she overheard her boss and Arneson discussing Cruise‘s case, reports New York gossip column PageSix.com.
