Stranger things have happened, but we sort of doubt these rumors about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes having maybe possibly been the top secret buyers of one of the most expensive properties in San Francisco, 300 Sea Cliff Ave., which recently sold for $18 million.

Curbed notes that the buyer of record was a small accounting firm in Walnut Creek that serves a number of high net-worth individuals, which to us points the finger away from Cruise, who probably would have used an accountant closer to home? Anyway, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison was also floated as a possible candidate. We just want to go on the record saying that we hope it isn't a big celeb like Cruise because the last thing this town needs is Paparazzi Nation descending on its every charming street whenever Suri emerges for a walk.
