According to a report, the "Mission: Impossible" star's split from the Russian socialite ended because he fell too deep and moved too fast in their relationship.

The pair, who were first spotted together last December, ended things after Cruise allegedly proposed to Khayrova. Sources who spoke with Star Magazine (per RadarOnline) claimed he "fell for her hard" and that their "romance was going along smoothly."

They reportedly got to know each other very well and spent a good amount of time as their romance blossomed.

According to the insider, they "knew everything about each other," and Khayrova "knew all about his past" as he was "fascinated with learning everything he could about her."

Sadly, their relationship didn't endure long because Cruise allegedly asked her to marry him.

Khayrova allegedly accepted Cruise's proposal at first but then was put back by his intensity when the actor began rushing plans to tie the knot.

His actions piqued her interest, and she wondered why he was in such a hurry to marry. The insider added that it appeared overwhelming for her, and she "got scared off."

"He was obsessed with getting all the details exactly right, like Elsina's favorite flowers and colors, her favorite foods — even her wedding dress and the honeymoon," a source revealed, per Radar Online.

"Tom was handling every aspect of it, and it started freaking Elsina out," the source continued.

"She explained that she had gotten caught up in the moment but needed a break," the source added. "He was shocked that she changed her mind. She broke his heart."

Cruise is reportedly still determined to win her back, as he has been "sending her flowers and jewelry." However, that is very unlikely, as the source noted that Khayrova said "she needs time apart to think," adding, "It seems like for her, it's over."

As we reported in February, Cruise and Khayrova's relationship seemingly grew so well that he reportedly got acquainted with her children.

The shocking breakup came just days after "The Outsiders" star met the Russian socialite's children.

At the time, sources claimed he wanted to remain friends with her as they lived in the same apartment block in London.

"To end things on a bad note would've been awkward if they bumped into each other in the lift," a source told The Sun. "There are no hard feelings between them, and, for Tom, their relationship simply ran its course."

Before their split, they were seen canoodling and attended several occasions together, including the London Air Ambulance gala, which had Prince William in attendance.
