Nicole Kidman skeptical over ex-husband Tom Cruise’s new romance – and you might recognize the lady in question

Once one of Hollywood’s most influential power couples, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman have led distinctly different lives since their dramatic divorce in 2001.

Nicole went on to meet and marry Keith Urban in 2006, and the two remain a couple today. Meanwhile, Cruise tied the knot with Katie Holmes in a union that ended in divorce in 2012.

Since the breakdown of his last marriage, Cruise has remained a bachelor. Despite remaining one of the world’s foremost celebrities, the 61-year-old hadn’t officially dated anyone – that we know of – in the last 15 or so years, until speculation linked him to 36-year-old Elsina Khayrova, the daughter of a Russian MP, who was previously married to Dmitry Tsvetkov.

The pair was supposedly spotted at a party in Mayfair, London, in December, with one attendee telling the Daily Mail: “They were inseparable, clearly a couple. He seemed to be besotted with her.”

Khayrova, a former model with British citizenship, divorced her business tycoon ex-husband in 2023. Her name hit the headlines in 2022 when she appeared in court and was ordered to pay a hefty fee of £117,000 ($149,500) to a company that had installed fountains in one of her and her ex-spouse’s homes.

It’s important to note that Cruise hasn’t publicly confirmed that he and Khayrova are an item, and there hasn’t been much news since the party in December.

Nevertheless, the rumors have drawn an opinion from Nicole Kidman, according to BNN Breaking. Kidman reportedly believes her ex-husband’s new relationship is “bizarre” and “staged.”

Kidman recently spoke about the breakdown of her and Cruise’s marriage, stating that the completion of the divorce proceedings ruined what should have been one of the most magical nights of her life.

In a conversation with author Dave Karger in his new book “50 Oscar Nights,” as relayed by People, she opened up about the night she won an Oscar (the ceremony was mere hours after the finalization of her and Cruise’s divorce).

“I went home and ended up ordering takeout and eating it on the floor of the Beverly Hills Hotel,” Kidman is quoted as saying.

“I sat on the floor of the hotel eating French fries and a burger with my family and went to bed. That’s when it hit me. I went, I need to find my love; I need a love in my life. Because this is supposed to be when you go, ‘This is ours.'”

Sources close to Kidman, quoted by BNN, reveal her belief that Cruise is “undateable” and that his rumored relationship with Khayrova is doomed to fail.
