Russian oligarch whose socialite ex-wife is romancing Tom Cruise sends actor warning: Keep your ‘wallet wide open’

The ex-husband of the socialite who is reportedly romancing Tom Cruise is warning the “Top Gun” star 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,” Russian oligarch Dmitry Tsetkov told the Daily Mail of his ex-wife, Elsina Khayrova.

“Tom should keep his eyes and wallet wide open.”

Tsetkov did add that he is “happy for her” and would wish her “all the best” but admitted he hasn’t spoken to her about her potential new romance because their “preferred method of communication” is through their attorneys.

“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.”

The tycoon, who made his fortune in diamonds and mining, said his three-year divorce cost him nearly $200 million and forced him to sell off some of his assets to pay her.

Cruise, 61, reportedly was spotted canoodling Khayrova last Saturday at a party in London’s Grosvenor Square.

“They were inseparable – clearly a couple,” one guest at the almost entirely Russian event told the Daily Mail. “He seemed to be besotted with her.”

The pair reportedly arrived at the soiree and “spent most of the night dancing” with each other before leaving together in the early hours of Sunday.

Prior to seemingly romancing the socialite, the “Jerry Maguire” star was rumored to be dating his “Mission Impossible” co-star Hayley Atwell, who shut down the “weird [romance] rumors” in July.

“It’s not what I’m about. … Why are things being assumed or projected onto me about my relationship with my work colleague and boss?” she asked.

The “Agent Carter” star – who got engaged to composer Ned Wolfgang Kelly in April – slammed the rumors as “upsetting” and “invasive” because they involve “people in my actual life, my personal life, who have to be on the receiving end of that.”
