Us: Katie Holmes was disrespected by Jamie Foxx, who cheated on her for years

Embed from Getty Images
As we heard earlier this week, Katie Holmes dumped Jamie Foxx sometime this spring after six years of dating mostly undercover, right after they made their FIRST public appearance together at the Met Gala. Jamie was most recently seen out with a girl young enough to be his daughter, a singer whom he claims he’s helping out (sure he is). We know Katie dumped Jamie because a source told Us Magazine (if that’s true and I believe it). A source also told Us that Jamie cheated on Katie for years. This isn’t surprising at all.

Not on the same page. Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx were living very “different lives,” which ultimately led to their split, an insider reveals to Us Weekly exclusively.

“It has been many years of him stepping out with other women,” the source says. “He’s disrespectful and their lives were different. His partying ways don’t fit with hers as she’s focused on raising her daughter and working.”

Speculation of a breakup between Holmes and Foxx started earlier this month when the “Blame It” rapper was seen with two different women in Los Angeles. The Ray actor was first seen with a mystery blonde at clubs Delilah and Highlight Room on Thursday, August 15. Two days later, he was spotted holding hands with singer Sela Vave at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood.

The rest of the article is a recap of stuff about their relationship which we already know. I believe that Katie dumped Jamie, because he’s acting like he’s hurt. He’s been taking these other women out to paparazzi hot spots as if he has something to prove. Although there were a couple of staged outings with Katie over the years, I distinctly remember a beach photo op, he didn’t take her to the LA celebrity spots! I bet Jamie thought Katie would stay on the back burner and he could take her back whenever he wanted, because it sounds like that was their pattern. She didn’t do that this time so he wanted to let her know he’s over her. By being petty like this he’s the one showing that he’s hurt. (See also: Miley Cyrus.)

Let’s play who should Katie date next. Maybe an agent or lawyer type, someone adjacent to her industry but not as famous as she is. Ooh I would love for her to get with someone funny who can make her laugh, like a comedian or up-and-coming actor who isn’t in it for the headlines and will be crazy about her.

After I wrote all that I found this story about a video that Jamie Foxx, 51, made about his relationship with that extremely young singer, whom a source previously told People was “just a girl,” a “young singer” he was “helping out” Here’s what he said. He claimed he discovered her, basically, and is mentoring her:

“When I met Ed Sheeran, I didn’t know him from Adam. He slept on my couch for six weeks — he ended up going on to do great things,” Foxx said of the British singer.

“Nick Cannon was 13 years old, he would sleep in my old house. Before Ne-Yo was Ne-Yo, he would come to the crib,” Foxx continued.”Everybody comes to my crib, no matter who you are.”

“But here was the thing, there is a young lady by the name of Sela Vave. I did the same thing with her.”

Foxx shared that he was introduced to Vave by one of his other artists. He then got to hear her sing on the front steps of his house — a moment that Vave has shared on social media.

“She’s singing broken down Beyoncé, playing the guitar and I said ‘How the f— did this happen?’”

“So, we took her under our wing,” Foxx explained.

The star then explained the photographs taken of himself and Vave holding hands as they left Bootsy Bellows nightclub last Friday.

“I’m escorting her to my car, to put her in the car — my artist, who hangs out with my kids and is as young as my daughter,” Foxx said.

“People try to make mountains out of molehills. We want to treat her the same way and give her the same opportunities,” Foxx said, adding that he warned Vave of the “haters.”

“I told her it’s going to be this way. It’s a double standard when it comes to women,” Foxx said.

Foxx said that he chose to speak out because “we protect our own.”

“I spoke to that girl’s mom, and she put her trust in me,” Foxx said of Vave. “We want to make sure she has the opportunity to show you the talent we saw. All of the unnecessary hate for the woman, just because the guys are coming here and they’re working hard, but when a girl does it, she has an ulterior motive. Stop that s—.”

“I embrace all the artists [who] come here. That’s our artist. She’s been brought into the family, she works hard, and she’s a beautiful singer.”

Vave also slammed the trolls in the caption of Foxx’s live video, writing, “For the people who care… here is the TRUE story… for everyone else you can keep talking and calling me a w—-, slut, home wrecker, thot, gold digger, that I should die, and whatever else you want.”

“It doesn’t matter to me, I’m out here to work and do what I love most. #music #killthedoublestandard.”

I couldn’t see that video because it’s expired. It’s somewhat convincing to me and maybe he’s telling the truth. However, where is the part where he says “there is absolutely nothing going on between us and I’m offended by that?” Do you know what I mean? This sounds genuine, but he could have said something like that. Also, he knew how this would look. He knows there are photographers outside Bootsy Bellows. He could have written a statement denying any romantic relationship with her and posted it to IG. I’m just still kind of skeptical and I’m sure he gave these type of excuses to Katie.

Jamie posted this photo with his daughters on the set of Beat Shazam, the name that tune show on Fox which he hosts. He also posted a photo with his sister. This makes me think that he easily could have gone out with family or guy friends to be photographed, but that wouldn’t have gotten press or Katie’s attention, would it?

This photo of the two of them out in NYC is from April.

    Katie Holmes is a keeper and I think Jamie will regret losing her in the coming years. He has always been really talented but also really immature.

  2. Erinn says:

    Keanu. She should date Keanu.

  3. Seraphina says:

    Careful Jamie. Your treading on thin ice. Ask R Kelly.

    Ugh. Was having mad respect for him but this kinda makes me cringe a little. I hope I’m wrong and it’s all innocent.

    • Kitten says:

      I mean…I could be wrong (of course) but..I believe him?

      I also believe that he cheated on her multiple times.
      But I have trouble believing that Foxx is so gross that he would get with a woman his daughter’s age. I think he’s thoughtful enough to recognize that he would be horrified if an older man with power preyed on his girls.

      Then again, it’s Hollywood and as we all know, the older dude with woman half his age is pretty standard out there. Nobody really bats an eye. I hope I’m right though because even though I know Jamie would be a pain in the ass to be in a relationship with, I quite like him. Always have.

      • Bishg says:

        Mmm.. I don’t know… I read his lame-ass justifying message and it sounded trite and typical creep playbook. He started listing all the celebrities that he’s let sleep on his couch to “help them with their careers” over the years, including a then-11 celebrity (too lazy to check the name now). I think this couple was poorly matched from the beginning so I’m surprised they’ve lasted this long..

    • MC2 says:

      This is worlds away from R Kelly & we shouldn’t be creating parallels. Jamie is hanging out with a 22 year old who is young but an adult and R Kelly raped children. It’s not like R Kelly helped someone’s career, had a May/Dec romance & got bamboozled- he is a pedophile that entraps girls & abuses them. What R Kelly did was illegal & abusive, what Jamie is doing appears to be skeezy.

      • Seraphina says:

        The public nor the media will be lenient. Skeezy open the doors for them to start drawing parallels. And they are not kind nor do the care about truth.

      • MC2 says:

        I have never seen the media not lenient on an older, famous, rich man dating a young startlet OR Kelly/Epstein/all pedophiles (see Brian Singer too). I have never seen a man who hangs with 20 y/o being accused of R Kelly’s crimes (see Leo & all the pussy posses out there). I see what you’re saying about being careful cuz there will scrutiny but I think your parallel (men who hang with 20 y/os will be accused & tried as pedos) is off base & a little dangerous.
        But I agree- he should be more discreet if he doesn’t want this attention.

  4. StarGreek says:

    The more I hear about him the more I think that playing his character in Dreamgirls was actually like playing himself.

  5. ByTheSea says:

    She literally looks like one of his daughters, so I’m trying to believe him. He and Katie were a better match and age appropriate.

  6. Ali says:

    And in a year “from our close working relationship, it grew into something more and we couldn’t be happier…”

    Liam Hemsworth is single.

  7. SJR says:

    Any body who willingly and knowingly stays with a partner who repeatedly cheats on their relationship, makes me sad. I just can not understand it. my Ex cheated and the day I found out what he had been up to behind my back was the day I filed for divorce. I knew I could never get past the betrayal. Now, Katie has $$ and why she tolerated it, is her business.

    • FrenchGirl says:

      Maybe she was his regular girlfriend. During our 4 first years « together »,my husband and i were not exclusive

    • Kosmos says:

      Agreed, if she stayed with him while he cheated, just UGH……that’s just being a doormat. He stays single all these years for a reason. He doesn’t really want to settle down. I really thought they were mismatched, too, so now she can move on to someone more appropriate for her and her lifestyle with her daughter. I’m sure Jamie has his good points, but not worth being cheated on or having a long-distance relationship with. Move on, Katie……don’t look back.

  8. Mego says:

    Jamie was a rebound for Katie after a nightmare marriage. She is better off alone than with someone who disrespects her. They always seemed like a chalk and cheese kind of couple to me

  9. QueenMeow says:

    I wouldn’t hate seeing her with Chris Evans.

    • Lizzie says:

      they would look good together but i get the feeling he is 1) deeply neurotic 2) wants children. i’m not sure katie holmes is about to start over with kids at 40 with a 13 year old at home.

      • Darla says:

        He wants kids he better get movin, because nothing will ruin him like waiting a few more years and hooking up with a 20 yo. Ugh. And I love him. And don’t care that he’s neurotic. I’m neurotic. But that would ruin him for me.

  10. Tonya says:

    She’s too sweet for him. NO one deserves to be chronically cheated on by their boyfriend/husband/partner. He has major issues if thats true.

  11. Lizzie says:

    i get the impression that their arrangement worked until it didn’t. it happens. they both have kids and i’m sure he played an important part in helping her move past her horrible marriage. hopefully she meets someone who makes her happy. she seems like a great mom.

    • Patty says:

      I’m with you Lizzie! It sounds like they were not exclusive for some time, more FWB. And then one of them decided they wanted more, they gave it a go and didn’t work out. I don’t think there is a bad one or a victim in this scenario. Two grown folks who had a relationship, realized they wanted different things or needed different things, and they’ve gone their separate ways. Nothing to see.

    • Ann says:

      Yeah, that’s my feeling too. She didn’t want someone who tied her down too much after her experience with Tom, and whatever the terms of their relationship were, it worked for awhile. Hopefully they can both find what they’re looking for (and Jamie can find a woman his own age).

  12. DS9 says:

    Coming up next on the Water is Wet News Network….

  13. Arizona says:

    I must be the only person who thought they were the weirdest match going. I can’t believe they were together (in whatever manner) for so long because I just don’t get it. But I’ve always found Jamie Foxx a little annoying.

    • Jack says:

      I always thought it was a PR relationship. Her time with TC was.

      • Some chick says:

        A PR relationship? How? They were super D/L.

        Also, she had a crush on TC, since she was in high school, which he exploited. He was the one in it for the PR. She was trapped.

      • Moonlampje says:

        have you ever went down the rabbithole that is Scientology? Because it sure sounds like you haven’t. Katie wasn’t in that relationship for PR.

  14. lucy2 says:

    Sure Jan (Jamie). I hope he’s being truthful, but I just can’t help doubt it. If you want to help someones’ career, you post their music, get them meetings, etc.

    I could see Katie doing some rom com thing like going back home for the holidays and falling in love with her old high school boyfriend. I think she needs someone just calm and nice.

  15. Chaine says:

    Somewhere Brad Pitt feverishly calling his publicist to see if he can start a rumor that he and Katie have been secretly dating…

  16. Rosewater says:

    She (and her career) just went off the rails after her marriage to Tom Cruise. I hope she went into therapy after that fiasco. The last thing she needs is another whack-job boyfriend or spouse. She needs to set a better example to her daughter.

    • Pineapple says:

      Rosewater … this seems so harsh. I have always thought she left scientology FOR her daughter. I think she has set a gorgeous example for her child. Her child came first. As for Jamie, I got the sense she didn’t care he was unfaithful for a time; she cares now. She is done. Oh, and all the cupcakes they eat? Those girls have a fun, nice life. xo

  17. ShinyGrenade says:

    Who ever said she wanted to be in a relationship? After the horrid mess with Cruise, maybe she wanted a casual fuck buddy and she was pretty happy to keep it this way.

    I am bother with that kind of article, with the narrative that women always want relationships. There is nothing wrong for a woman to want something very casual.

  18. skeptical says:

    I just don’t see why this narrative has to move to the “Katie was done wrong” by the dog Foxx. She never came out with a declaration of true love and fidelity and fireworks. They never appeared as a couple really. She did that and now she’s doing something else. Good luck to both of them.

  19. Claire says:

    I don’t know either of them or course so I could only speculate, but I never understood this coupling. I figured surely there had to be more to him that he let on in his public persona, but apparently not.

  20. Annie says:

    They were always really mismatched to me. From the very beginning. I just didn’t see it. Like Liam and Miley. Two complete opposites cannot make for a good couple. Katie needs a man who’s not into partying. I’m surprised they lasted this long to be honest. I’m also kinda shocked that this was happening the entire relationship? I shouldn’t be surprised but I am. I was hoping Katie would find someone good after Tom Cruise.

    Never forgive a cheater. They never stop cheating. It only becomes easier for them to cheat again when they see that it’s not actually a deal breaker to you. If you want a real relationship, cheating should always be a deal breaker. End of. It shouldn’t happen even one time.

  21. Clay says:

    They were clearly mismatched from the beginning. She should have walked away from his playa aZZ right after a week or two of banging.

  22. Yes Doubtful says:

    I thought they were an odd couple, but I respected that they wanted to keep whatever their relationship was – private. As for the young girl…I mean, it’s hard not to think he’s dating her when it’s so common for men of power to date younger women. Plus, he was holding her hand. If it’s a business relationship, then why is she so involved in his personal life? I don’t hold hands with my clients and I don’t know their kids or live at their house. I hope she is careful.

  23. kerwood says:

    I never understood their relationship. I didn’t understand what HE saw in her. Jaime is known for his partying. He used to come to Toronto on a regular basis and shut the whole city down

    When I heard he was dating Katie Holmes, I wondered what he was doing with her. Jaime Foxx is much more sophisticated than people give him credit for. He has a wide circle of friends. Katie Holmes is a TV actress who agreed to an arranged marriage with Tom Cruise after every young actress turned him down. FLAT. She got a few good parts, a LOT of publicity but soon realized that life in a cult was hell.

    I will always admire how Katie Holmes got away from Tom Cruise. It was brilliant. But I will never forget that she CHOSE Cruise. Remember that Oprah debacle? He didn’t even know her name!

    Its unfortunate that Katie and Jaime ‘s relationship ended badly, but I dont think it was much to begin with

    What I really want to know is what went down between Jaime and Cruise when Cruise found out Jaime was dating his ex-wife. I bet THAT’S a story.

    • Tourmaline says:

      All this!

      I forever side eye Katie Holmes. She was a grown successful woman when she eagerly threw her lot in with Scientology. She even had the advantage of a shrewd parent who was a lawyer who could not warn her away. It was no mystery what Scientology was at that point. She saw that Tom had virtually erased Nicole Kidman from their kids lives. She must have noticed the swarm of Sea Org minions catering to the every whim. She went all in with it anyway—as described in Leah Remini’s book— reporting anyone who crossed her to Scientology for punishment.

      So, not a fan of Katie Holmes.

      • april says:

        Totally agree that she would have known about Scientology’s ways before she married him and she chose to do it anyway.

  24. Joanna Jackson says:

    Idk, I believe him. As for them being mismatched, all you guys see how they look on the outside. My husband and I probably look mismatched. I’m a white, very conservative looking and dressing woman. He’s a black guy who has a more hip look. And he is into music, blasts his stereo system. We’ve been together 7 plus years, we are both faithful. We have similar big hearts and other traits in common. Style has nothing to do with that. I think you guys are going by appearances mainly. Just goes to show, how you look is what people judge you by. People always assume I’m a conservative good girl. Lol.

  25. jolanda says:

    Yes, Keanu and Katie needs to happen. Katie was in love with Cruise since she was a girl. Sad story, I hope she meets someone for live.

  26. enike says:

    How many times was Jamie holding hands with Ed Sheeran or Nick Cannon? If he wants to compare the cases and motivations
