No Dakota home for Tom Cruise
Mar 10, 2007, 8:00 GMT
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are not moving into New York's Dakota Building.
The 'Mission: Impossible' actor and his wife were rumoured to have splashed out $25.5 million on a ten-room apartment in the famous Central Park West building, but real estate agents handling the sale insists the reports are false.
Dolly Lenz, a Prudential Douglas Elliman real estate broker, said: "The apartment is in contract for an undisclosed price that will be a record sale for the building.
"But it certainly hasn't been bought by the Cruises or any other celebrities."
The Dakota Building, once owned by Leonard Bernstein, is famous for being the place where Beatles legend John Lennon was shot dead in 1981.
He was gunned down outside the building, where he had an apartment, by deranged fan Mark Chapman.
Lennon's widow Yoko Ono and actress Lauren Bacall are residents in the stylish apartment block. The movie "Rosemary's baby" was also filmed inside the Dakota.
