Man on a mission:Tom Cruise sells his Beverly Hills mansion soon after putting his £40m Colorado home on the market

The Hollywood star lived with his third wife, Katie Holmes, at the Beverley Hills property, while his Colorado pad was purchased during his second marriage to Nicole Kidman.

Tom Cruise appears to be shaking up his property portfolio.

The Mission: Impossible star has sold his Beverly Hills mansion for £27.6 million, less than a year after selling his estate in the Hollywood Hills for £7.8 million.

He recently put the Colorado home he bought during his second marriage, to Aussie actress Nicole Kidman, on the market for £40.7 million because he no longer uses it.

The Beverly Hills home, where Cruise lived with third wife Katie Holmes, from whom he parted in 2012, was reportedly bought by US private equity billionaire Leon Black. It has seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a tennis court, swimming pool, a children’s playground, guesthouses, plus a wine cellar with a nearby tasting room.
