The two met in 1985 at Sean Penn and Madonna’s wedding and started dating that same year. The romance didn't last long. A source on the set of Cruise's new film Top Gun 2 told the Sunday Mirror that he wasn’t very pleased when he heard about Cher's tell-all memoir. "Everyone knew he wasn’t happy – it seemed like a bit of a touchy subject," the insider said.

Cher previously described to the Mail on Sunday how she and Cruise had bonded: "A bunch of people who were dyslexic were invited to the White House, and Tom and I are both dyslexic. We didn’t go out till way later, but there definitely was a connection there."


The "Believe" singer added that she’s still friends with Cruise, noting, "Though I don’t get what he does, that whole Scientology thing. I can’t understand it so I just… don’t.”

As has reported, Cruise's Church activities have caused controversy in the past.

Speaking about her book, Cher has noted, "I just made the deal, but I have no time frame. It’s going to take me a while because I have a lot to tell.

"I will grit my teeth through the whole thing because I’ll have to be honest.”

So far, Cruise hasn't commented on the Sunday Mirror report.
