Bombshell: Could Tom Cruise be straight?
A shocking new tell-all written by the deceased con artist and mobster Johnny Fratto suggests that may be the case.
Fratto coached Cruise while the actor prepared for his role as a pool hustler in 1986’s The Color of Money.
Fratto claims Cruise was enamored with Fratto’s criminal past — and he also appeared criminally straight, even to a professional con artist.
“Despite what rumors you’ve heard, I can vouch from firsthand experience that Tom Cruise is not a homosexual,” Fratto admits.
In the book, Fratto describes a night out with Cruise in a Chicago club, where he threw his arms around “two smoking hot party girls from Des Moines.”
“‘What’s going on, ladies?’ he asked with that mischievous superstar smile that made that f?-?-?— millions of dollars. I had never seen women actually swoon in real life.?.?. these b?itches swooned. If there was anything gay about Tom Cruise, I sure as f?-?-?- didn’t see it, and neither did the girls from Des Moines.”
Fratto’s biography, Now That I’m Dead, Here’s the Real Dirt, was penned by a Mafia historian named Matthew Randazzo V, who in the book also describes encounters with the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Paris Hilton.
In the past Cruise has pursued three lawsuits in relation to his sexuality, winning a 1998 case against the Daily Express for a piece claiming his marriage to Nicole Kidman was solely to cover up his homosexuality.
