Did Jamie Foxx dump Katie Holmes because he didn’t want to be official?


CB is sad about this because she really liked Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes as an undercover couple. We rarely – if ever – heard anything about them, and my feeling was always that Katie and Jamie were more friends-with-benefits than a real loved-up couple. When they were in the same city, they would quietly spend time together. Maybe they would occasionally travel to see each other and get some action on the downlow. But mostly we know about it from coincidence and innuendo. And now, according to Page Six, it’s over. Hm.

There’s trouble in the secret relationship between Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx.

The couple, who never confirmed they were an item, have broken up, according to a report, and a source close to Foxx says it’s because he didn’t want to go public as a couple.

The source said, “Jamie wants to continue to act like the carefree guy he is in public. Eventually, the question had to come about whether he was committed enough to the relationship.”

Reps for both Holmes and Foxx couldn’t be reached.

Do you buy that? Do you believe that Foxx was the one saying “I don’t want this to be official”? I’m not sure if I believe that. Between the two of them, I would think that Katie is the one who was more gun-shy about publicly having a boyfriend. Then again, I always believed that rumor that part of her divorce agreement was that she couldn’t have a public relationship for a certain number of years after divorcing Tom Cruise. That’s another thing – I find it suspicious that neither Cruise nor Holmes has been in an official relationship since their divorce. Anyway… Foxx and Holmes are no more. Until he travels to see her for a booty call in a month, I suspect.

    Of course it was her who wanted more then the cool aloof man could give her. I’m so sick of this tired narrative.

  2. liz_bee says:

    Katie’s style is always a little off, but she can be truly stunning in spite of that.

    I always wish the best for her after her years of servitude to Tom Cruise and scientology. I’m weirdly proud of her for getting out seemingly unscathed. Exiting from that relationship must have taken real bravery.

    • doofus says:

      she looks worlds better since leaving him, right?…I am also happy she got out, both for her and her daughter.

  3. Kori says:

    I never bought them as a real actual couple. He seems to enjoy the single life and, rule or not, I doubt she wanted a relationship anytime soon. I totally believe a friends with benefits though. They always seemed to get along and given that they’re been photos of the two together and none of Foxx and Cruise since the divorce it seems clear whose side Jamie was on. I thought that was cool of him given that Tom was the A lister and most of their friends seem to have gone with him or neither.

    • Cookiejar says:

      Yea, seems more like a case of “no need to rock the boat”. Maybe they wanted to see if it worked before doing the official bit. Highly doubt that someone that escapes a marriage the way Katie Holmes did was in any hurry to jump into another relationship (formal, at least). Jamie might have been the same.

      Maybe the relationship wasn’t going anywhere other than the booty call and either of them or both decided it was no longer worth it. Who knows?

    The thing I don’t get about all this hiding is that it’s not really working is it? I mean they’re on the covers of tabloids all the time. It’s no secret that they are (allegedly) together. So I wish they would just relax a little and not worry about what other people think. This is assuming that they are indeed together, and it’s not just a fictional tale.

    • Lady Mimosa says:

      He was not going to be seen with her in public because of the black community fanbase particularly women. I don’t think she wanted any press drama, but I wondered why she was with him any way, the relationship wasn’t going to go anywhere.

      • Cookiejar says:

        Women fanbases (of any race) are really weird, aren’t they? They develop this unhealthy possessiveness towards their idol. Been guilty of that before, don’t like what I was then.

        Men seem content to ogle, regardless of who their celebrity woman is with. Pretty much the : “as long as I see her naked, I don’t care who she’s with in her real life”.

        Women? not so much…. obsessive fixation is common.

    • MizFabulous says:

      *scratching my head* But haven’t there have been allegations out there that JF is gay?!?! How does that fit into all of this?

  5. Frosty says:

    Relationships are tough enough without the threat of Scientology lurking in the background…

  6. Babs says:

    What Is going on with her hairline?

  7. Coconut says:

    I watched some of Oprah’s tv show 20th anniversary recently (on dvd), and was surprised to see how bromancy Jamie and Tom were together. That must’ve been a huge split between them, and quite something that Jamie and Katie got together.

  8. sherry says:

    I find it interesting that neither Katie or Tom have publicly had relationships since their split. Can you imagine the negotiations of the divorce?

    Tom’s side: You cannot publicly date anyone for 5 years after the divorce.

    Katie’s side: Fine. Then he can’t date anyone publicly for 5 years either.


    Maybe it’s more of a “don’t flaunt any romantic relationships publicly unless it’s for the long haul” type of deal because of Suri? But then, if the tabloids are to be believed, Tom’s not really concerned about Suri since she’s an oppressive person or whatever they call non-Scientologists.

    It’s such a shame he got caught up in that cult.

  9. serena says:

    Noooo! I kinda rooted for them :(

  10. Amelie says:

    Tom barely has any contact with Suri that we know of and I’m pretty sure he probably has a clause when he does interviews that ban people asking him about Suri or Katie. I’m not sure he could do much if Katie did start dating someone publicly. After Going Clear Scientology really can’t go after her or anyone she may date so not sure I believe this contract theory.

    I think she was just so traumatized by her relationship with Tom and Scientology that she hasn’t wanted to seriously commit to anyone which makes perfect sense.

    As for Tom, he probably can’t find anyone who wants to date him because of Scientology. He’d have to go with a no name

  11. Tourmaline says:

    I still wonder, having recently watched Going Clear, how Katie got into Tom and Scientology. He was in full blown crazy, saluting a picture of L Ron Hubbard, mode by the time they hooked up. He had ultra-creepy handlers surrounding him and Katie at all times. I know she was young-ish at the time, he was supposedly her childhood crush, but seriously, what the hell was that all about.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      “Love-bombing”. He showered her with affection and gifts, swept her up in a whole romantic fantasy of what her life would be like with him, and once they were married, he relaxed back into himself. It’s basically bait-and-switch. She got herself out once she saw him clearly (and as soon as she realized Scientology planned to eat her kid.)

  12. Loca says:

    I love Katie Holmes but this is not a real relationship. Jamie is always out with other women and if he can’t even acknowledge your relationship just acknowledge not go into depth that means he is playing the field. I wish Katie would find a good man and quit messing with these older men. Jamie does whatever he wants and they have to hide their relationship 24-7. She is just a hook up when it’s convenient for him.

  13. TheOtherSam says:

    The original source for the Page Six item is Radar online, so perhaps this story should be taken with a big grain of salt.

  14. artistsnow says:

    This relationship was never real. We never saw ANY photos of them doing a thing. Every bit of every thing about this couple was always a rumor.

  15. Andrea says:

    I do find it odd she has never publicly dated someone since the divorce.

  16. Alex says:

    The timing of this could not be better! Please get back together with the newly single Joshua Jackson and make all our Dawson’s creek dreams come true 😂

  17. annie says:

    could be he is different in private than than his public persona, but I don’t like him that much.
    I do think they are friends, she was pictured at his birthday and also that pic in his studio but cant see her being with him publicly or on a permanent basis, maybe they are, could be bed buddies, both are sagies, they would have fun, K is not the type to bring men in and out of suris life unless it is the real thing . just my thoughts

  18. AuntSass says:

    I wonder what she’s like in bed???? I would say vanilla.
