Cruise Recruits Hollywood Pr Guru To Replace Sister

TOM CRUISE has parted ways with his publicist sister 20 months after giving her the job over his longtime PR PAT KINGSLEY.

LEE ANNE DeVETTE has dealt with her brother's romance with KATIE HOLMES and his controversial comments about Scientology and psychiatry during her time as his press officer.

Cruise has replaced his sister with top Hollywood PR PAUL BLOCH, who also serves as co-chairman for publicity powerhouse Rogers + Cowan and represents movie stars JOHN TRAVOLTA, SYLVESTER STALLONE, BILLY BOB THORNTON and DAVID and VICTORIA BECKHAM, among others.

However, DeVette will continue to work alongside her brother as the full-time caretaker of his charity work.

In a statement, the movie star says, "Lee Anne has done a wonderful job on behalf of me and Cruise-Wagner Productions over the last few years, but she has always expressed a desire to oversee and expand the day-to-day activities of my charitable endeavours."

DeVette adds, "I know how important Tom's charitable goals are to him, and I look forward to assisting in raising the profile of the good works that he does on behalf of children's health issues, mentoring, literacy and other social reforms."
