15 years after divorce, Tom Cruise, 61, has ‘made things official’ with new girlfriend – and you might recognize her

Tom Cruise may finally have found real love again 15 years after his divorce from Katie Holmes, with reports suggesting his romance with Elsina Khayrova, 36, is serious.

Late last year we reported on rumors that Cruise was besotted with his new Russian socialite girlfriend after they were seen together at a party in Mayfair, London. At the time, the pair were said to have been “inseparable.”.

That followed Cruise’s name being mentioned in the same space as Columbian pop icon Shakira (herself a recent divorcee), and then again with Mission: Impossible co-star Hayley Atwell. Neither rumor, however, seemed to hold much weight.

If new reports are to be believed then it’s time to lay such gossip to rest once and for all, with insiders revealing that Cruise and Khayrova are now officially an item.

“It’s well known within Elsina’s circle that she and Tom are now an item,” a source told the Daily Mail.

“They’ve grown very close over the past few weeks but take a lot of care not to be photographed together because they want to maintain their privacy,” the source continued, claiming that Cruise has been sleeping at Khayrova’s $12 million apartment.

The insider went on: “Tom has been staying the night at Elsina’s apartment, which as you can imagine, is a very beautiful place. They enjoy hanging out together and despite their wealth, do a lot of the things that normal couples do.”

That said, the couple are believed to want to keep their relationship private as stands, and so haven’t been spotted posing for photos together.

Khayrova is a former model who holds British citizenship and divorced from her business tycoon ex-husband, Dmitry Tsvetkov, last year.

Her name hit the headlines in 2022 when she appeared in court while being ordered to pay a hefty fee to the tune of £117,000 ($149,50) to a company who had installed fountains in one of her and her ex-spouse’s homes.

Cruise, meanwhile, has been married three times, first to Mimi Rogers between 1987 and 1990, then to Nicole Kidman for 11 years between 1990 and 2001.

The actor and Scientologist was most recently married to Katie Holmes between 2006 and 2012, but has remained single since their split.

According to the Daily Mail, Khayrova’s ex-husband had a warning for Tom Cruise, and indeed anyone else who might date his former partner in the future.

“Irrespective of whoever she’s with, Tom Cruise or anybody else, they should be aware that she likes the finer things in life and has expensive and luxurious taste. Tom should keep his eyes and wallet wide open,” Tsvetkov told the Mail.

“I’m happy for her, I wish her all the best.”
