Tom Cruise and Shakira Were Photographed Together at the Same Event, and Now the Internet Is Wildin’

Oprah, get your couch ready for some jumps, because Tom Cruise has a new lady in his life, and she's a She Wolf. Maybe. According to the (infamously unreliable) internet. 

The Top Gun: Maverick star and the “Hips Don't Lie” singer, who is currently single after dropping her cheating boyfriend, were photographed together at the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Miami, so naturally, it's time to start some rumors. On your mark, get set, goooooo!

“[Cruise] is extremely interested in pursuing [Shakira],” an unnamed source told Page Six, adding that “there is chemistry.” They were spotted chatting, so that's something? The outlet also reports that, per a source, Cruise sent the singer flowers, which is nice and everything, but this is a man famous for sending coconut bundt cakes to his fellow A-listers. Send Shakira a cake, Tom! Other things the “source(s)” wants us to know: She is shorter than he is, and “Shakira needs a soft pillow to fall on, and that could be Tom…[he is] a nice-looking guy, and he is talented.” Sounds like a completely unbiased reporting of the facts to me!

This pairing is so chaotic and random that people can't help but speculate…and freak out. Some people made jokes, like “He’s going on an impossible mission to make sure those hips really don’t lie.”

Others simply advised Shakira to “run” from the, um, unique star.

One writer questioned the validity of the rumors, given their very different lifestyles: “I know publicists are paid to come up with these ridiculous pairings but this one is genuinely absurd.”

But by far the most relevant response, in this writer's opinion, is to contextualize this rumor amid the other WTF pairings of late. Indeed, “so Taylor Swift broke up with Joe Alwyn and now she’s allegedly dating that rat Matty Healy from the 1975 whilst her bff Gigi Hadid is being linked to Leo again but she’s over 25 now and somewhere in all this Shakira is dating Tom Cruise and Kylie Jenner is w Timothée Chalamet” is something to wrap your head around. 

Honestly? I can see it. Neither the Church of Scientology nor the Church of Shakira pays taxes, so they have that in common. But the question remains: How does Shakira feel about jumping out of planes? That is, after all, the true love of Tom Cruise's life!
