TOM CRUISE GIVES PENELOPE THE BOOT!

Published on: April 5, 2002

Tom Cruise has given Penelope Cruz the boot -- he's nixed plans to marry his latest love and told her to move out of his Beverly Hills home into a place of her own in New York.

Now Penelope is buying a three-room apartment in downtown Manhattan where she'll live ... alone!

The issue that goes on sale Friday reveals that Penelope is jealous of Tom's continuing relationship with his ex-wife Nicole Kidman, tells how Tom shunned Penelope at Oscars time and why the Spanish-born actress fled to Madrid ... and more.
