Tom Cruise Takes Umbrage At Song

LATEST: Actor TOM CRUISE, who recently filed for divorce from his actress wife NICOLE KIDMAN, has demanded that all copies of a PHATS & SMALL track named RESPECT THE C**K are destroyed.

The song includes dialogue from Cruise's film MAGNOLIA, in which he plays a sex therapist who often uses the term "respect the c**k." The band's JASON PHATS says, "We got a definite No! from Tom when we asked to use his voice. His lawyers said there was no point in arguing."

The hitmaker added cheekily: "We hope Tom's marriage split has nothing to do with the ban - but we hear Nicole was a fan!" (AW/WNTSU/PDD)
