After ‘Titanic’ star Leonardo DiCaprio, Hollywood star Tom Cruise has sparked dating rumours with a woman almost half his age. The romance rumours started after Tom Cruise, 61, was spotted with Russian socialite Elsina Khayrova, 36, at a party in London’s Mayfair.

Both Tom and Khayrova were reportedly quite close to each other at the party, stirring up talk of a possible love story. If reports are to be believed, they were seen getting cosy, inseparable throughout the party and acting as a couple, showing Tom Cruise’s apparent fondness for her.

Meanwhile, the woman’s ex-husband has expressed surprise about the rumoured relationship, considering their discussions about turning his life story into a film starring Tom Cruise himself, the Daily Mail reported.

Tom’s romance with Elsina is his first public romance in years since his split with his third wife, Katie Holmes. The actor was married to actress Mimi Rogers from 1987 to 1990, Nicole Kidman from 1990 to 2001, and Katie Holmes from 2006 to 2012.

For the unversed, Elsina is a Russian-born model who now lives as a British citizen in London. She is the daughter of a prominent Russian MP who is the political ally of Putin. Elsina was previously married to Russian diamond tycoon Dmitry Tsvetkov, but the couple split in 2020.
