Tom Cruise has been rumored to be dating a wealthy Russian socialite, 11 years after his divorce from Katie Holmes.

According to the Daily Mail, the Mission Impossible star was spotted attending a party in London's Mayfair on Saturday (December 9) alongside 36-year-old Elsina Khayrova.

The former model and Miss Europe contestant, who is a British citizen, is the daughter of Rinat Khayrov, a prominent Russian politician.

An insider from the party told the publication the pair arrived around 9PM and were "inseparable, clearly a couple," adding that the 61-year-old actor seemed "to be besotted with her".

The outlet added that Cruise's new flame donned a strapless black dress with a diamanté bow and posed for pictures with Avramenko Aliena, a former Miss Europe contestant.

She also hit the dance floor with the Top Gun star, and then the rumored couple reportedly left the event together in the early hours.

"Cruise was very friendly - he kept being asked for pictures and politely declining," the source continued. "Eventually, the DJ had to make an announcement in Russian that Mr Cruise didn't want any photos."

"He spent most the night dancing with Ms Khayrova, but at one point he was just throwing himself around in the middle of a group of women," they said.

Cruise has remained tight-lipped about his love life since his high-profile split from the 44-year-old Batman Begins actress in 2012, whom he shares a 17-year-old daughter named Suri with.

Although the actor is one of the biggest names in Hollywood, it has been reported that his new beau is richer than him as she is the ex-wife of a diamond-trading tycoon, Dmitry Tsetkov.

While Khayrova’s net worth has not been disclosed, she has previously owned a lot of expensive properties with her ex-husband, including a $27 million mansion on the Wentworth estate in Surrey as well as houses in London worth $22 million.

The former uber-rich couple also owned properties in both Dubai and Cyprus alongside their car, jewelry, and art collections worth millions of pounds.

But when the pair began divorce proceedings in 2021, their extravagant lifestyle proved to be the fuel for a very public fall-out that has played out before the courts.

Khayrova was accused of hiding substantial assets from Tsetkov, including her $1 million handbag collection, and was ordered to pay $146,000 that she owed to the company that installed fountains in her Surrey home. In the socialite's defense, she blamed her estranged husband and said that he was on the Kremlin’s most wanted list.

Cruise and Khayrova have not confirmed their romance yet.
