– Rumors sparked that Tom Cruise was pursuing Shakira after they met at a Miami Grand Prix event.
– However, a source close to Shakira denied the rumors, stating that she has no interest in dating anyone at the moment.

Rumors circulated after Shakira and Tom Cruise were seen together at the Miami Grand Prix on May 7. According to a Page Six report on May 9, “He is extremely interested in pursuing her,” a source stated. “There is chemistry.” However, a source told Us Weekly on May 10 that Shakira “has no interest in dating” the actor. “She had a great time hanging out with Tom at F1, but she has no interest in dating him,” the insider explained. “She was focused on her kids and career.”
Shakira and Cruise were seen together a day after the singer received the Woman of the Year award at Billboard’s first Latin Women in Music gala. In her acceptance speech, she emphasized the importance of women being faithful to themselves and their growth as individuals.
Shakira announced her separation from Gerard Piqué in June 2022 after 11 years of being together. She has since revealed that she discovered Piqué was cheating on her after noticing that a jam jar in their home was empty despite no one in their family other than herself liking jam. She also referenced Piqué’s new girlfriend in her viral breakup song, “BZRP Music Session #53.”
Meanwhile, Cruise, who is still an active member of the Church of Scientology, has been linked to other stars. He was previously married to Katie Holmes from 2006 to 2012, Nicole Kidman from 1990 to 2001, and Mimi Rogers from 1987 to 1990.
While the rumors of Shakira and Cruise dating may be circulating, Shakira’s focus is on her children and career at this time. Reps for both Shakira and Cruise have not responded to the latest reports.
The Miami Grand Prix appearance showed Shakira had a good time with Cruise, but that may be all there is to it. It remains to be seen if they will spend more time together in the future.
