Russian oligarch Dmitry Tsetkov, the ex-husband of Elsina Khayrova, has warned Tom Cruise about potential financial pitfalls amid rumors of a romance with his former spouse.
Tsetkov, who experienced a costly divorce from Khayrova, advised Cruise to keep his wallet “wide open.”
“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 tastes,” Tsetkov told the Daily Mail.
“Tom should keep his eyes and wallet wide open.
“She’s 36, she’s beautiful, financially independent and loves life,” he said, adding that she’s “never been a big Tom Cruise fan, but I’m sure that’s all changed now.”
While Tsetkov mentioned that he is “happy for her” and wishes her “all the best,” he admitted not having direct communication with Khayrova due to their preferred method being through attorneys.
The diamond and mining tycoon revealed that his three-year divorce proceedings cost him nearly $200 million, leading to the sale of some assets to meet financial obligations.
New affair for Cruise
Reports surfaced of Cruise and Khayrova’s alleged romance after they were seen together at a party in London’s Grosvenor Square. The pair reportedly spent most of the night dancing before leaving together in the early hours of the morning.
Cruise was previously linked to his “Mission Impossible” co-star Hayley Atwell, who vehemently denied the romance rumors, labeling them as “weird” and “upsetting.”
Atwell emphasized the invasion of privacy and clarified that assumptions about her personal life can affect people close to her.
