Tom Cruise was once Cher’s lover

Cher has revealed the shocking news that she dated Tom Cruise in the 80s.

The outspoken diva says he was a great boyfriend, despite the fact he was 16 years her junior.

‘[Tom] was just the most adorable man you can possibly imagine,’ she insists. ‘But I don’t understand the Scientology thing.’

Mmmm…but we can imagine what L. Ron Hubbard disciple Tom, now 45, might have seen in Cher. She was definitely on a different planet in her heyday.

The Hollywood diva, 61 – who is currently single – also confesses that she almost dated Elvis Presley.
