The rumor mill, as always, has been churning for actor and Scientology golden boy Tom Cruise. Last month, the internet freaked out when the National Enquirer reported the mother of the Mission: Impossible actor hadn't been seen since April. And now, it looks like Cruise is selling his Beverly Hills mansion that he bought with his ex, Katie Holmes.

Multiple sources have told Variety that Cruise, 53, was very secretive about putting up his Beverly Hills pad for sale for a hefty price of $50 million. Back in 2007, Cruise and Holmes bought the place for $30.5 million. While we can't personally say if the $50 million price tag is worth your hard-earned money (because we're commoners compared to Cruise), we can tell you what comes with this estate.

The mansion, which is "clad in dour gray stone," is more 10,000 square feet, and sits on a sprawling 1.3-acre parcel of land. It has seven bedrooms, and nine bathrooms, but really, there's something for everyone. For the kids, there's a children's playground. Sports fans get a tennis court (lighted, of course, for those late night rallies) with basketball hoops. And it doesn't have just a regular ol' fountain—try a swimming pool-size one. It also has a massive pool, too.

Cruise seems to be moving around a lot of his real estate lately. He put his Hollywood Hills, European-style estate on the market this year for $12.9 million. Also on the market is his massive Telluride estate that's running at $59 million, and a Laurel Canyon compound that's believed to be owned by him for $12 million. Could such a big movie star be strapped for cash? Or maybe he likes trading homes like Pokemon cards. Regardless, we hope everything's okay, Tom.
