Tom Cruise's new girlfriend's brother shot dead by kidnapers

Tom Cruise's new girlfriend's brother shot dead by kidnappersFebruary 24, 2005, 12:50:21

Latino actress Sofia Vergara, who was pictured with the Hollywood heartthrob for the first time earlier this week, was devastated when brother Rafael was killed in their Colombian homeland in 1998.
She is quoted in Britain's The Sun newspaper as saying: "My older brother was assassinated, so I had to get my family out and get them to Miami.
"We come from a successful family and he knew he was a target for kidnapping. He always had bodyguards.
"Then one day he went out alone and was shot dead. I was devastated. You don't get over something like that easily."

Sofia - who has a young son, Manolo, by her ex-husband - also successfully battled against cancer.
She revealed: "I was very lucky. I had thyroid cancer but they caught it at an early stage. It was terrifying. But I knew I'd beat it."
Sofia began dating Tom two months ago after being introduced by friends and sources claim they are so smitten with each other they will attend this weekend's Oscars together.
Sofia, 32, has previously dated singers Enrique Iglesias and Craig David while 42-year-old Tom - who has two adopted children with ex-wife Nicole Kidman - has been single since splitting from Penelope Cruz last March.
