Tom Rivas is a character from Grand Theft Auto IV. Tom Rivas is a Puerto Rican-born homosexual man. He is the cousin of Lyle Rivas, but isn't in the same criminal activities as his cousin. His nickname is "French Tom", also using it on his account.

He owed Brucie Kibbutz a great deal of money, Tom went into hiding when Brucie tried to collect on his debts. In order to lure him out, Brucie and Roman Bellic set up a fictionalised account for Niko Bellic that depicted him as a rich gay man who enjoys spending his wealth on his boyfriends. Tom agreed to meet Niko at The 69th Street Diner, where, after some awkward conversation, Niko killed him.

During the conversation between Niko and Tom, Tom mentions that the Maisonette 9 and Hercules nightclub owner Anthony "Gay Tony" Prince is actually completely broke which plays a large part in The Ballad of Gay Tony.
