Everything We Know About Tom Cruise’s Reported Russian Socialite Girlfriend
Tom Cruise hasn’t been publicly linked to a woman since his marriage to Katie Holmes ended in 2012. But over a decade later, the 61-year-old has reportedly soft-launched a new relationship with 36-year-old Russian socialite and former model Elsina Khayrova.
According to the Daily Mail, sources close to the couple, who were first spotted together in December, have been “growing closer” and have “made things official.”
Last week, Cruise and Khayrova attended a gala at the five-star Raffles Hotel to support London’s Air Ambulance Charity, which featured Prince William as a guest of honor. However, friends say that they spend most of their time together at Khayrova’s lavish £10 million Knightsbridge apartment.
“It’s well known within Elsina’s circle that she and Tom are now an item,” a source told the publication. “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.”
“Tom has been staying the night at Elsina’s apartment, which as you can imagine, is a very beautiful place,” the source continued. “They enjoy hanging out together and despite their wealth, do a lot of the things that normal couples do.”
When not at Khayrova’s apartment, the source added that the couple has dined privately at some of London’s most exclusive restaurants, and take walks together in Hyde Park, near her home.
Who is Elsina Khayrova?
Before moving to London, Khayrova was born in Russia. According to Us Weekly, her father is Rinat Khayrova, a member of the Russian Military Police. Before becoming involved with Cruise, she was married to 43-year-old Russian oligarch Dmitry Tsvetkov for over a decade, before filing for divorce in 2022. The acrimonious, three-year legal battle reportedly cost Tsvetkov £150 million, but despite the circumstances, he said that he’s happy for Khayrova and wishes her all the best.
“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,” Tsvetkov told the Daily Mail. “Tom should keep his eyes and wallet wide open.”
The couple also reportedly share two children, including a daughter named Eva, who Khayrova referred to as “her best friend” in a September 2023 Instagram post.
Cruise also has three children of his own; an adopted son and daughter Connor and Isabella, who he shares with his second wife Nicole Kidman, and Suri with Holmes.
