Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx dated for years and were able to keep their romance under wraps. According to reports, Holmes disguised when she met her then-boyfriend.
Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx never publicly confirmed their relationship. However, last year, the pair’s split made headlines. How did they keep their six-year romance a secret?
Katie Holmes disguised to meet Jamie
In 2015, Us Weekly shared what Katie Holmes did to meet Jamie Foxx without getting attention. According to an insider, the Dawson’s Creek alum “put on a wig and hat to meet him at a hotel.”
At the time, Holmes was filming All We Had in New York City. Holmes reportedly sent his daughter Suri from NYC to LA with her nanny. Suri took a trip to Disneyland while Holmes visited Foxx’s Thousand Oaks, California mansion.
Holmes and Foxx’s friends were aware of their romance
Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx did not come forward and announced their relationship to the world. However, according to sources, their family and friends were aware of their real status.
“Katie is so in love,” one source said when they were still together. “I don’t know if he’s dating other women, but she isn’t dating other men. She is all about Jamie.”
Another source also shared how Holmes gushed about Foxx.
“She said she loved him,” another source added at the time. “She always gushes about how amazing he is and the joy he brings into the world.”
Meanwhile, Foxx allegedly called Tom Cruise’s ex-wife “my girl.”
Pair was not serious
Many believed that Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes were an item. However, some sources claimed that they were just friends and were not serious in committing with each other.
“This is not some intense romance,” one source told PEOPLE. “Jamie and Katie are friends and have been for a long time. They are two adults who are attractive and single, and so apparently conclusions will be drawn. But contrary to those conclusions, they’re not about to run off and make some serious commitment.”
Foxx denied romance with Holmes
Aside from claims that they were not serious, Jamie Foxx also denied Katie Holmes in his previous interview.
“[The rumors] are one hundred percent not true. In fact, it’s quite hilarious because we simply danced at a charity event along with a lot of other people,” he told Entertainment Tonight at the time.
In 2017, Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes walked while holding hands in Malibu. Their photos made headlines confirming the claims that they were indeed an item.
In 2019, Foxx was spotted holding hands with singer Sela Vave. Foxx and Holmes’ split made headlines three days later.
However, prior to that, an eyewitness who was at La Esquina restaurant overheard Holmes’ conversation with a pal. The actress allegedly said that she and Foxx “haven’t been together for months.”
Foxx and Holmes stopped seeing each other in May 2019. Their split was reported in August of the same year.
