The blossoming romance between Nicole Kidman and Lenny Kravitz has been accidentally confirmed - by her ex-husband Tom Cruise.

Cruise was being interviewed by veteran broadcaster Larry King on his CNN chat show on Friday night (28NOV03) when he was drawn into the speculation surrounding the Cold Mountain beauty's new relationship.

The MINORITY REPORT star told King that he was still in love with his ex-wife because, "We've lived a life together," but told of how glad he was that they both had new partners in their lives.

He said, "I'm now with Penelope Cruz and she is with, erm, she is with another."

King pressed him by asking, "Who's she with?" prompting Cruise to mumble, "She's with Lenny, Lenny Kravitz. He's a very talented musician."
