We’ve secretly known about it for years, but Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx have finally gone public with their relationship. And Holmes is looking better than ever, now that the stress of keeping things secret is gone. She has been attending New York fashion week and has looked stunning in two different dresses.
Why did Holmes and Foxx wait so long to confirm their relationship? Two words. Tom Cruise.
According to a source, when Holmes and Cruise divorced in 2012, there was a clause in the agreement that forbid Holmes from “embarrassing” Cruise in a variety of different ways. She couldn’t talk about Cruise. She couldn’t talk about Scientology. And, she couldn’t publicly date any other man for five years!
“She’s allowed to date, but she cannot do so in a public fashion, and she’s not supposed to let any boyfriend near their daughter, Suri,” the insider said in 2016. “Katie wanted out of the marriage so badly, she agreed to the terms — and got $4.8 million in child support, plus another $5 million for herself.”

But now, Holmes is free to publicly date again. The former Dawson’s Creek star and Foxx have reportedly been together since 2013. But, it was only last week that the two were seen showing some public affection. They were hand in hand on a beach in Malibu. The couple spent the Labor Day holiday weekend together at a beach house.
The couple met back in 2005 when she was dating Cruise. Foxx and Cruise had just starred together in the movie Collateral. The three actually posed for pictures together in September 2006, at an NFL game between the Washington Redskins and the Minnesota Vikings. That was after she had given birth to Suri, but before she married Cruise.
Of course, her marriage to Cruise didn’t last. Holmes filed for divorce and sole custody of Suri in 2012. What was most shocking is that it only took ten days for the couple to reach a settlement.
About a year later, Holmes and Foxx were seen dancing together at an event in the Hamptons. It wasn’t long after that the rumors about them started to circulate. Foxx repeatedly claimed that reports of them being a couple were “fake news.”
Finally, after years of hiding, Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx can now be open about their romance.
