Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx cover US with exclusive photos for some reason

UW3318_cover_ns
At some point I was really interested in Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx’s nearly five year long relationship. I was rooting for them and hoping they’d go the next step and go public if they wanted. Although we’d get occasional sightings of them it seemed like they were cooling off, trying to keep the relationship quiet or both. US Magazine featured Katie on the cover last month with an accompanying story quoting a source who claimed that Katie “won’t let go of Jamie” and that “No one understands why Katie loves a man who can’t seem to commit or why he’s publicly humiliating her like this.” A few weeks later they have the cover above, with exclusive photos of Katie and Jamie holding hands on the beach. Remember when they did this last year? Us had a story in the spring of 2017 that they were about to go public as a couple and then they were photographed in September holding hands on the beach.

So now we have a magazine cover and more quotes about Katie loving a noncommittal guy. The last time anyone brought up Katie Holmes in an interview, Jamie bolted. He’s ok with getting his photo taken with her but he’s not really acknowledging her either. Here’s US’s story, which sounds just like their last one except for these new photos, which were taken on July 21st.

“They were totally engaged with each other,” reveals a beachgoer in the new issue of Us Weekly. “They were never on their phones. She had this incredible smile on her face. She looked smitten.”

The evening ended with a toast. In between makeouts, they finished off a bottle of champagne on their blanket. Then, adds the onlooker, “they watched the sun set.”

That carefree attitude is a welcome change for the couple who once rented out an entire restaurant to avoid prying eyes on a date night. “Katie and Jamie care about each other a lot and they tried to stay as quiet as possible because they didn’t want to ruin that,” reveals a source close to the mom of Suri, 12. “They knew the second they stepped out together, it would open the gates for criticism.”

For nearly five years behind closed doors, they were able to grow at their own pace, explains a second insider: “They got to know each other and see where they were headed.”

But now that Holmes, 39, is done hiding her romance with the affable actor, 50, pals are warning her to guard her heart. “No one can understand why Katie loves a man who can’t seem to commit,” adds the Holmes confidant. “Everyone wants Katie to take care of herself.”

So Katie went from a controlling cult leader who was probably emotionally abusive and gave her zero space to a guy who is very good to her, treats her well and lets her be herself, but is distant and won’t take that next step. It’s understandable why she’s still with him, but I want more for her, especially after all these years. US is claiming she wants that too, but maybe Suri is just her priority now and she doesn’t want a long term live-in relationship either. These photos seem like Jamie’s way of saying he’s with her, but given the narrative and the fact that this is the second year in a row we’re seeing photos like this, I don’t think we’ll get much more information.

    Meh, I think she’s probably fine with the situation. She went through a horrible marriage, I can totally see someone who has gone through that not caring about being married again. To me, it seems like she’s comfortable with where they’re at and people are pushing a narrative on her. But I guess I’m doing the same, just in the opposite direction lol

    • whatWHAT? says:

      I agree…what’s with the “humiliating her” BS? maybe she LIKES it this way.

      she does her thing, he does his, and maybe they have a “committed non-monogamous” (thank you Dan Savage, you’ve educated me SO MUCH on stuff like this!) relationship.

      or maybe it’s open. or maybe it’s not.

      but until I hear some sort of complaint about it from Holmes herself, I’m going with “it works for them”.

    • jessamine says:

      THIS. We don’t even know everything she went through with Tom and Scientology … why can’t she just be the one wanting freedom and control of her own life? There is zero evidence Jamie is “humiliating” her or that this relationship isn’t on her own terms.

  2. LahdidahBaby says:

    Well, I wish her happiness and I still give her HUGE props for how she got away from Tom with her life and child intact, but Jamie is just so much more INTERESTING than she is, and that makes the relationship feel out of balance to me.

  3. Chaine says:

    Why is the narrative always that the woman is needy and clinging and the man can’t commit? Maybe her first priority is to be a mom to her child and to focus on her, so she has a casual “friends with benefits” relationship with a guy who isn’t looking for anything deeper either.

  4. Jane says:

    I don’t know what Katie wants.

    Maybe she is fine with whatever relationship she has with Jamie.

    Would I want that? Hell no but to each their own I guess.

  5. Croatian says:

    Omg, we don’t know anything about them, these stories are so juvenile. Just let them be as they want to be, who says he is the one to keep it casual, OMG
    rant over

  6. Sherry says:

    They look happy together. You don’t have to get married to be committed and whatever they have going on, they seem to be happy with it.

    Also, doesn’t it seem odd that neither Katie or Tom have publicly dated anyone? We get glimpses of Katie and Jamie like this that they’re together, but no official outings like a red carpet event. Then there’s Tom, who has not publicly been in a relationship since Katie escaped.

    • Leigh-Klein says:

      Tom is embarrassed and wants to avoid the spotlight ever since it got out about Nazanin Boniadi and the “wife auditioning.” Anyone who would date this freak after hearing of all that, and how badly he treats people, would be a an even bigger fool than Anna Duggar.

  7. truthSF says:

    Jamie Foxx NEVER talks to the media about his relationships…past or present!!!!

  8. Starryfish29 says:

    I never got the impression that she wanted to publicly acknowledge their relationship & he didn’t, it always seemed like after the Tom Cruise insanity, both of them decided a lowkey relationship was the way to go.

  9. Jess says:

    I also hate the sexist slant of these stories. As someone who got out of an awful marriage six years ago I have no desire to ever remarry. I’ve had a boyfriend for four years who lives in another city and we see each other every weekend and it’s perfect. He’s wanted to get married for years but I’m sure some of our acquaintances think I’m the one pining to get married.I love my house, my time to myself, and time just with my kids and I’m not the only woman who feels this way. Wish tabloids would stop acting like we’re still in the 1950s.

  10. malina says:

    With the other commenters. I get the feeling this is exactly what she wants. She looks happy to me.

  11. Mel says:

    Not every woman is desperate to get married, especially after living with a controlling nut job that you had to plan a Mission Impossible-esque escape from. They both seem fine, people need to mind their business and not project their issues onto them.

  12. Bishg says:

    I’m glad that she’s finally comfortable enough to be seen with him in public, but these photos sure look staged. I wonder what’s the implicit message here?

  13. Mrs. Bad Bob says:

    They seem happy with the situation as is and isn’t it time to stop forcing every relationship in socially accepted boxes?

  14. Miss M says:

    I really think she wants it that way…

  15. GarlicFiend says:

    I enjoy your posts, Celebitchy, as you have a great take on / instinct for celeb gossip. (I enjoyed the other one on Jen Garner you did the other day too.)
    They really like each other, enjoy each other’s company when they can, and aren’t monogamous (Jamie isn’t) and sometimes leverage the relationship to amp up their PR, is my take.

  16. annie says:

    not sure about jamie, but the media can rearrange negative things to suit them
    as for katie being quiet, yes he seems very social, but she water skis, goes scuber diving, snow sking, which reall y i didn’t know until very recently. yes she is very private , so does anyone know the real katie……….no , even fans from beginning of DC up till now don’t know the real katie.

  17. Loca says:

    There was a blind about Jamie cheating, meets women at random hotels with a no cell policy and they get in contact thru his assistant who arranges these hook ups. Maybe with the recent negative stories, Katie wanted to spin her own narrative. I believe she is hooked and turns a blind eye to what really goes on. I just wonder for how long it will go on and if she will find a better guy down the line. Seems like this is all about Jamie’s way if she wants to be in his life.

    • GarlicFiend says:

      I also believe he’s playing the field with her turning a blind eye to it but I think he likes her as much as she likes him (it’s been five or six years; you don’t stay that long if you don’t). Maybe she’s trying hard to ease him into monogamy as well as ease him out of his well-established camera-shyness.

  18. D says:

    Still think this has more to do with tom and Scientology and however she got the hell out of there but what do I know
