Katie Holmes & Jamie Foxx’s relationship confirmed then denied yet again

holmesfoxx
We’ve been hearing rumors about Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx for years. The first time we reported on them was in the summer of 2013, when they were spotted dancing together in the Hamptons. Katie and Jamie knew each other through her ex husband, Tom Cruise. (Do you remember that psychological thriller Cruise and Foxx starred in, Collateral? That came out in 2004 and was actually a pretty good action movie.) Then, in October of 2013 we heard that Holmes and Foxx were dating and a lot of us (Bedhead, me) got really excited and hoped that these two would come out as a couple at some point. They never did. We heard about sightings, secret hotel meetings and possible hand-holding. Foxx denied in 2013 that he was seeing Katie, and he was vague about it last year, after they were spotted holding hands. Then these two were both seen wearing rings on their left ring fingers in March, which they denied meant anything, stating that they were neither engaged nor was Katie pregnant. (OK! made that second part up.)

I got really excited when I heard this story. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Claudia Jordan, who happens to be a friend of Jamie’s, said on a podcast that Jamie and Katie were together. She was asked “Do you like Katie Holmes for him?

Jordan said “He is very happy with her, so I like that he seems very happy.” However now she’s backtracking completely. It figures. Jordan told ET that she has no knowledge of these two together:

I’ve never seen Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes together ever. I guess people are really wanting someone to confirm this and I’m sorry but it’s not coming from me. I don’t have the knowledge of this being a fact. I misspoke. I have no knowledge of Jamie with Katie at all. I’ve never seen them together, he’s never told me he’s dating her. Sorry to like not have this bombshell story, but I cannot confirm that.

[From ET]

ET has this exclusive and they’ve had several interviews with Jamie in the past, for what it’s worth. ET also claims that multiple sources have confirmed the relationship to them. So we’re back where we started with these two. Kaiser thinks they’re just friends with benefits, which given how much they’ve denied it makes sense. I so want them to be together though.

    I hope it’s true. Very sassy of her, you go girl! ^_^

  2. Aiobhan says:

    He looks better with facial hair.

    Having said that, I hope they are happy together.

  3. Colette says:

    If Claudia Jordan was a “good friend”,than she wouldn’t be talking.She is a “Hollywood friend ” who probably hasn’t seen him in years.

  4. Grant says:

    I’m not crazy about that shapeless blue dress but LORD her hair and makeup are fire in the second-to-last pic. I always heard speculation that Jamie Foxx was secretly gay. Unfounded?

    • Shirleygail says:

      But her eyes look dead in that pic…..

    • I have a friend who was in LA in the early nineties when he was getting big. She said he slept around with a lot of women back then, including a few of her friends. He was supposedly a horndog and fu@$ed around a lot, mostly one night stands. She says as far as she knows he’s definitely not gay.

    • Naya says:

      Unfounded. Iirc his hetero shenanigans have been outed multiple times by women who were actually telling very unflattering stories or in Karrine Steffans case, women who have outed other men. (Karrine later went on his show to promote her book and got so pissed by his line of questioning that she forgot that she had written about their encounter in the book. She spent five minutes calling him gay because apparently thats the worst thing you can call a black man).

      The gay stories stem from a nineties tell all tabloid interview given by a jilted FB. In that interview, she claimed to have seen him playing naked basket ball with his guy friends and nothing more. Of course that story like all gay related stories has progressively grown over the decade. Jamie is extremely gracious about it. He just says that he doesnt think of “gay” as an insult and he is fine with whatever people think.

    • Moneypenny says:

      I agree, unfounded. I used to hang out with him and his friends when I lived in LA in 2004. Of course I can’t say for certain that he isn’t gay, but I certainly didn’t think he was gay. The main “lie” he seems to tell is that he likes black women–my friend (the reason we hung out. She was close with him for a bit) says he is only interested in white women.

  5. Bex says:

    I’d so love this to be true as well. If it is, they’ve done a very good job of keeping it private

    • Megan says:

      Such an attractive couple. Stop hiding, we want to see you looking fabulous on the redcarpet!

  6. lisa2 says:

    I get protecting your relationship.. but I don’t want to be in a relationship that has to be hidden and all. And beside that Jamie is always so clear and seems honest when he denies it. They are adults. You can have privacy. But all the sneaking around doesn’t make this feel good about it. You don’t have to shout it to world.

    • Miss S says:

      If this is true they are doing their own thing, maybe it turn them on to be as secretive. Just like you said, they are adults so why not?

    • Colette says:

      I don’t believe they are in a relationship they may be friends with benefits.I have several cousins in LA who see him out partying as recently as last year.Also Katie is never at his house parties but there are lots of women there.He does not party like a man in a long term committed relationship.IDK Maybe he parties when Katie is on the East Coast.

    • Naya says:

      Lets be realistic though, they would never have peace if they were an open couple. First, they would have to deal with a great deal of bs hostility because 1) bro code , 2) ex wife code and 3) interracial. Katie has finally got the tabloid coverage to a manageable level, imagine what this would do.

      And of course, Suri would become a target too. Can you imagine the prices that shots of Oscar winner and former Cruise BFF Jamie Fox, dotting on daughter of absentee dad Tom Cruise would fetch? I also think that Katie may be concerned that Tom would view an open relationship as humiliating and that could destroy whatever hope remains of him becoming a decent dad.

      I think they are basically living the life they would be forced to live if they made an official confirmation just without the hostility and tonnes of news articles.

      • Lahdidahbaby says:

        Came here to say exactly that, Naya, but now I don’t have to — and you said it better than I would have, anyway.

  7. Marianne says:

    Or maybe after being with Cruise, she just wants something low key? Doesn’t want to be gossip fodder anymore.

    The backtracking sounds like these two probably told her off.

    • Jenna says:

      Yeah, I sense this too. Katie’s entire personal life (including Suri) have completely vanished from the spotlight since her divorce, a complete 180 from her time within Scientology. If they are together, I can totally understand why she’d be hesitant to make that part of herself and her family public again.

      I’m sure those closest to her know. And I think it’s refreshing in an age of Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston and the like.

    • Green Girl says:

      MTE, Marianne. I remember the couch-jumping. In Katie’s shoes, I’d be fine with keeping everything quiet.

  8. Luca76 says:

    I’m pretty sure they are dating but not exclusive. I’m also sure the last thing Katie wants is a public relationship.

  9. cindy says:

    Am I just cynical or does it seem like he wants her to think its a relationship but he is actually keeping his options open with all the undercover secret spy stuff. I mean, it’s been years.

  10. Melody says:

    I love how the life came back into her eyes post-Cruise. Happened to Penelope Cruz, too. Cruise needs a warning and ingredient label…

  11. claire says:

    Why is this some secret undercover operation? I really don’t get it.

  12. Gigi says:

    I can’t decide if this relationship is real or a total tabloid fabrication.

  13. Rocío says:

    I’m interested in these two than in the Swiddlenton.

  14. Joni says:

    Maybe they’re just f*ck buddies and not together together.

  15. Almondjoy says:

    I’m guessing Jamie’s or Katie’s reps reached to Claudia and told her to keep quiet.

    I wonder what the secrecy is all about 🤔 Is it to protect Katie?? Something to do with Scientology??

  16. d says:

    Well, they’re both adults and maybe they’re just being DISCREET, a concept that not a lot of people understand. They don’t owe anyone anything. It really is their business, if there is anything going on. I understand the gossipy part of it all, but I can also appreciate people being discreet if that’s the approach they want to take. These days, it’s actually quite welcome.

    • Starkiller says:

      There is a big difference between discretion and the cloak-and-dagger nonsense that’s going on here. I obviously have no knowledge of whether this is coming from her side or his, but I do know that I have no idea why an average person would put up with this much less either of these people, both of whom are good-looking and wealthy enough to get whomever they want.

      • d says:

        Sure, but is it cloak and dagger though? She’s not commenting, neither is he. He’s not hiding, he’s just not commenting. To me, it’s more the gossip media that’s trying to make something of it and of the fact they’re saying nothing, which is within reason to do? Or I don’t know, maybe it is cloak and dagger, I still don’t really think they owe anyone any details. It’s no one’s business, and if it’s just friends with benefits, I can understand why Kate might want to be quiet about it for the time being (for the sake of her daughter). It’s not that important and I don’t know why i’m still commenting on it!

      • Anon33 says:

        Celebrities literally can’t win, either they’re too thirsty or too cloak and dagger. Like someone said above-nobody owes you a confirmation. Period.

  17. Badgerette says:

    The red carpet pic is giving my Courtney cox vibes…before all the plastic surgery.

  18. Tania says:

    Is it possible that she has a financial arrangement with Cruise that ends if she has a new partner? These denials are silly.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      Considering it was her dad who made the (iron-clad) prenup, and her dad was not so keen on Co$, I suspect not.

      Maybe Katie just prefers stealth mode? She was a total burner-phone-using ninja getting out of her marriage, and only used the press afterward to keep herself safe from Co$ harassment. Plus, Tom and Co$ presumably chose her in the first place because she was naturally discreet.

  19. Joannie says:

    I don’t see her dating anyone, ever.

  20. Bread and Circuses says:

    Ooh, I like that navy blue dress!

  21. ohdear says:

    I wouldn’t mind a totally off-radar relationship with someone who wanted it for the right reasons – privacy, to keep something sacred and to manage their public image. But he seems like an ass about it, so I kind of hope that Katie is the one benefitting from any action they are getting. If its a mutually agreed upon decision, and she isn’t just keeping it quiet for him, I say go for it.
    This is what he said in an interview on Oprah on her OWN network:

    “Whoever you date, don’t let anybody know. I was dating a girl one time and I’m sick and there was a premiere and she got her dress and she was like, ‘Well, the premiere’s tonight… what are we doing? Because I got this dress.’ And I said, ‘Ok, well you go ahead and go to the premiere and don’t come back,’ because it ain’t about that. To me, in order to make it in this business, it has to be someone who is willing to sacrifice a little bit more than what they would sacrifice in a normal relationship.”

  22. cd3 says:

    Good for them for keeping it private if it’s true. I assume it must be true since neither has officially denied it as far as I know. I don’t see why they “should” or have to confirm it.

    The one thing that bugs me about the stories about Jamie and Katie is that there’s usually an undertone that “he” is the one keeping it on the DL… maybe it’s her?

  23. TOPgirl says:

    I really think they got it for each other but What’s stopping them from really going all out?

  24. Sunshine Gold says:

    This is like how Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin had a rule that they could never be seen at a public event together. At some point it’s like, get over yourself. People really don’t care that much.

  25. serena says:

    Just the fact that she’s getting Jamie Foxx on the side is great for her, but yeah I wish they’d come out with their relationship.

  26. caitlinK says:

    I have nothing *against* these two being together, of course (though she seems rather bland for him, though what do I know?)—but why on earth are complete strangers to them breathlessly hoping and praying that they ARE together? I just don’t understand that kind of personalized idolization of celebrities.
