According to the Daily Mail, Dmitry Tsetkov gave Tom Cruise friendly advice amid rumors of his romance with his ex-wife, Elsina Khayrova.

The Russian oligarch was married to the female socialite for 11 years, a phase of his life that he recalls without fondness. Tsetkov claimed that during the period of his marriage to Khayrova, he spent millions of dollars purchasing clothes, handbags, and other luxurious items to satisfy her "expensive and luxurious taste."

He now expects that any new man coming into his ex's life should be prepared to equal or even surpass those expenditures, given her expectations for such lavishness.

"Tom should keep his eyes and wallet wide open," he continued, adding that he was "happy" for Khayrova and wished her "all the best."
