US: When Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx ‘are together, it works’

While I don’t get too excited about celebrity relationships, I want to see Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx work out. I think they really care about each other and don’t feel the need to gush over each other on social media.

Apparently, the bond between them is strong, and the few times they’ve been spotted out together, they look like they genuinely enjoy each other’s company. All I know of Jamie is what he shows to the public, but I can’t not love the man who gave us Wanda. Both of them definitely value their kids and they are making it work. People close to them that their relationship is working – and there’s really no magic formula as to why it does.

“Their relationship works because of the love, compassion, trust and support they have for each other,” a source close to Holmes explains in the new issue of Us Weekly.

While Holmes, 39, and Foxx, 50, “do lead their own separate lives,” admits the pal, “They confide in and rely on each other pretty heavily. They’re definitely very serious.”

“When they’re together, it works. When they’re not, they’re on their own,” the source adds. “It’s what works for them.”

One key to the success of this relationship, besides the fact that making a cute couple name for them (a la Brangelina) is virtually impossible (although I am taking suggestions), is that they strive to keep their personal lives private. According to US, “Katie and Jamie have an agreement that they’ll never talk about their relationship or each other in the press.”

Jamie recently kept up his end of that agreement when he walked off of an ESPN interview when the line of questioning went to Katie. A friend of Katie’s said she “appreciated” how Jamie handled the intrusive question and “felt he was respecting their agreement.” The day after the truncated interview, Jaime shut down a TMZ photographer who again asked about his love life by responding, “It’s Black History Month. No white girls until March 1.“ Ask a funny man a dumb question, get a funny answer. Touché, Jamie.

Some of Katie’s pals allegedly didn’t get the joke. US’ source explained, “Katie’s friends don’t get why she’s still with him,” adding that they “found his comments quite interesting.” Fortunately for Jamie, Katie “gets” him. Another source related that “She knows he was joking. She loves his sense of humor and doesn’t take a comment like that personally or seriously.”

I’m sure Katie knew what she was signing on for – at least this time around. I am firmly #TeamKatieandJamie (FoxxyKatie? Katoxx? I’m at a loss here) and I hope they have a long and lasting thing.

    It’s not excellent mashup material to work with lol.

  2. Shelley says:

    I love this! Only folks sure about what’s going on is Katie and Jaime!

  3. the better bella says:

    Ah this is a dumb relationship.

    There is nothing cute and lasting about f*ck buddies.

    Just call it what it is and move on to dumb JLAW stories.

  4. Dingo says:

    Is that Katie Holmes sitting behind Katie Holmes? :0

  5. Krill says:

    I am about to spend way too much time on these two. I have no issues with Katie but she comes off as a passive stepford wife type. I mean isnt that why the Cruise marriage happened? More assertive girls like ScarJo could smell the crazy a mile off and Scientology knew they couldnt reprogram strong women. A part of me thinks this is a mismatch thats only survived because they dont spend that much time together and Jamie only shows up to decompress. I also think he gets ALL his socialising needs fulfilled elsewhere and that her role is just to validate him. Nod and smile. While his role is to make her feel protected. Make them live together like a real couple and he would go crazy with boredom and she would be fatigued trying to keep up.

    Dont get me wrong, I think Katie was extremely brave and smart to escape and to rebuild in NYC where she would be safer, I’m just surprised that Jamie would gravitate towards her. Going by his lyrics I would think he would be drawn to a more in-charge woman. Ava Duvernay, Sarah Silverman etc.

    • oh-dear says:

      Some people need to ground with introverts. I have a few crazy, high-wired friends who turn to me when they need a check-in or to decompress, so if how you describe them is accurate, this makes sense. It also makes sense that they aren’t together a ton.

    • BostonStrong says:

      I think Katie IS an in-charge woman! Although, she had to learn how to be “in-charge” while planning her escape from Tommy and his cult! Circumstances can bring about changes in people and I can not believe that everything that Katie went thru, didn’t make her stronger!

  6. Astrid says:

    It’s been 5 years since her divorce agreement from what’s his name. Why is this relationship still such a secret?

  7. Busyann says:

    Jamkat? Katjam? Foxxykat? I don’t know, at a lost here.
    My guess is they’re still private because they’ve been burned in the media, especially Katie. You have to admit though, since the 5 year anniversary of Katies divorce, they have been more open.

    • susiecue says:

      Well they kinda have been, haven’t they? The photos on the beach, at his birthday party, sitting together and canoodling at the Grammy gala…I do agree though that they have no intention of publicly talking about it. And I think you’re right, I think in her case especially the whole Cruise Craziness really changed her and made her more protective of what she really values.

    • Masamf says:

      TA. I believe that marriage to Cruise burned Katie badly. She be like, I’m gonna make my own rules from here forward.

  8. Bonsaibonanza says:


  9. Miss M says:

    I am happy for them. But I find this couple so weird. I thought she deserved better…

  10. SammySushi says:


  11. T.Fanty says:

    My guess is that they are serious, but for whatever reason, he/she/they decided that he isn’t going to parent Suri. So they are seriously dating, but keep it low-key because they have decided not to be a family.

    • smcollins says:

      I can get on board with that theory. It does make a lot of sense. If it’s true that TC has abandoned Suri, or has very limited contact, it stands to reason that Katie would want to protect her from losing or feeling abandoned by another father figure if the relationship should fail. She’s made no secret that her daughter’s happiness comes first.

    • cf86713 says:

      Then they aren’t really serious then.

    • T.Fanty says:

      Or, if JF starts publicly parenting Suri, the news is immediately going to ask “where is Tom?” The bad press might motivate him and suddenly he’s back in Suri’s life, along with all of his BS.

  12. Harryg says:

    Why does this relationship have to be such a secret? I used to think it was great they were together but now they are both just annoying.

  13. Rachel in August says:

    I like them together, and whatever nickname they come up with for them, I’m sure it will beat TomKat all to hell ;)

  14. Amy says:

    It kinda just sounds like a very tenuous open relationship to me. Fair dos if she’s happy but it does sound like he’s holding all the cards (from what little we have heard, tbf)

  15. Maria says:

    My guess it’s a secret because of how Katie got out, with Suri from Tom and Scientology. Can you imagine the confidentiality agreement and “terms” for introducing new partner and step-dad type rolls. Bet they can’t confirm because they have some sort of timeline for official partner. I thought they would be official after 5 years but maybe they just decided to stick to what has worked in the past.

  16. @BitingPanda says:

    I’m not even a famous person and I would do things exactly this way.

    Coming out of a nightmare marriage, trying to be the best single parent you can be, why not remain your own person while also having the love and support of a person who doesn’t need to identify as “your other half”? It is 2018, there is nothing at wrong (or exhausting?) about having your own full life that makes room for love without being built around it.

  17. DorothyZbornak78 says:

    Considering what a whack-a-doo Tom Cruise acted like in the press during their relationship, and the fact that her relationship/marriage/divorce with him was constantly in the news/tabloids, it doesn’t surprise me one bit that she’s keeping a tight lid on this one. I imagine the constant attention/scrutiny she experienced with Tom was exhausting.

  18. BostonStrong says:

    I always wonder if they are just friends with benefits!

  19. Ozogirl says:

    I’m not sure if these two are as perfect as they seem. I have a feeling she wants more from him and he still wants to be able to play the field.

  20. Arabella says:

    I think he’s so hot!

  21. annie says:

    They don’t want to put a label on their relationship, according to friends, or his camp or hers, but the honest truth is….they are good friends with benefits. ” They enjoy each others company and have a good time together”, and that’s great,…. nothing wrong with that . they are 2 private adults who are friends and lovers , no secret there, but there are rules to these exciting little games , and there is a possibility that one of them can get burnt… badly.
    He fits in Katies in life , more than she fits into his, he seems to have so much family living with him, mother ,father 2 sisters, nephews, nieces , his youngest daughter, and I gather her mother as well, because i get the feeling they still play happy families together for her sake.
    Then the other day at boxer Mayweathers birthday, the dress code for all the females seemed to be was come half undressed , and believe me that’s how they were, that’s his scene, there is no way Katie would have belonged in there, wearing her classy black Zac Posen dress. It’s been 3 yrs since that photo of them holding hands and playing footsie came out, so what they have may actually work for them. we’ll see.

  22. Ladida says:

    I love them together

  23. Redgrl says:

    She looks great with short hair.

  24. Theresa says:

    K. Foxx

    I don’t know that’s a tough one but i do love them together. So happy to see Katie in what appears to be a stable, healthy relationship. Although, let’s be real…after what she came out of…dating a box of cereal would be an improvement.

    • TwoPac says:

      I know. I’d suspect she has severed PTSD from the whole co$ experience. Perhaps she’s not ready to jump into full blown trust mode. Hope Jamie is patient :)

  26. Heat says:

    JamKat definitely!

  27. Nicole Savannah, GA says:

    I hope they last. Privacy is extremely important. She may not have been as wise before Tom and CO$, but I’m sure she’s changed. Hope so. Scientology seems like they would easily make them targets if they flaunted their relationship. And flaunting is usually smoke for the real fire.

  28. Jackie says:

    I don’t believe Tom doesn’t keep in touch with Suri privately . Because of Scientology he keeps it on the down low. However cannot imagine him allowing Jamie into her life , so it is easier to keep things simple and quiet between Katie and Jamie. Just a thought.

  29. Patty says:

    They are good friends who have sex! Also known as fuck buddies. She’s 39 and he’s 50 and I don’t know why people feel the need to glorify their relationship or make them happen. It sounds like they have a similar set-up to what Aniston and Theroux had; live separate lives for the most part and nobody is glorifying that union.

  30. WMGDtoo says:

    I think the “mystery” is suppose to make them interesting or get the gossip world and public interested in them. Not working really. I don’t like Jamie. I’ve tried to put a finger on it but can’t. Just don’t like him. If Katie is happy being in this kind of relationship; go for it. But I don’t find them an interesting couple at all. I think Jamie is the one that wants to keep them in the dark so to speak.

  31. eve says:

    He should go back with his baby mama and raise his daughter. Now that his and Katie’s relationship is attracting so much attention, and not so secretive anymore it will fizzle out pretty fast wait and see!
