Social media went wild after Shakira was photographed next to “Mission Impossible” star Tom Cruise at the 2023 Miami Grand Prix. A source close to the actor confirmed to Page Six that he believed there was chemistry and wanted to pursue a romantic relationship with her.
Now, a source who is close to the Colombian singer confirmed to US Weekly that she is not interested in Cruise, who is 14 years older than Shakira.
“Shakira had a great time hanging out with Tom at F1 but she has no interest in dating him,” the source said. “He was really nice and she enjoyed his company, but she isn’t focused on dating him or anybody else at the moment. She has a lot on her plate and is focused on her kids and career for now.”
Cruise, 60, has a type. He previously dated Sofia Vergara and Penelope Cruz, which further fueled the speculation of romance with Shakira, who laughed at the rumors.
“Shakira has seen the online rumors that Tom has been courting her-and how fans are chiming in with their opinions-but she thinks it’s hilarious because it’s just not true,” the source said. “She had a fun time when they chatted, but that’s as far as things have gone.”
Shakira is single and ready to mingle
During the Miami GP, Shakira was also spotted with celebrities such as Serena Williams, Maluma, Lewis Hamilton, Henry Cavill, Julian Edelman and Jason Momoa.
All relationships are platonic, according to sources close to Shakira, per US Weekly.
Shakira, 46, is coming off a rough breakup from Gerard Pique and has been linked romantically to several people.
She is reportedly focused on her children right now and does not want a serious relationship, plus Shakira fans don’t want her anywhere near Cruise.
