Cruise's estimated fortune is $250 million sources say he enjoys splashing his cash so much that the actor could squander it all.
"Tom is really into money. He has no problem spending it. It makes him feel powerful. He loves to brag about his Porsches, his homes, his planes and his motorcycles."
"When Tom takes Katie out, he has his security people hand $100 bills to anyone who helps them, even someone who opens a door! He's a big giver."
The 45-year-old actor and wife Katie Holmes have a 20-month-old daughter Suri together, and Tom also has two adopted children, Connor, 12, and 14-year-old Isabella with his ex-wife Nicole Kidman, who stand to inherit his fortune.
As well as funding his lavish lifestyle of expensive meals and shopping sprees for Katie and Suri, Tom also spends a vast amount of money running his four private planes.
Last year, he spent a staggering $1 million on fuel alone.
