Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx Split After 6 Years of Dating

Share on Facebook

For all of you thinking: “When did they get together?” don’t worry, you’re certainly not alone…

The romance of Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx has always been very private, but it was actually a close-kept secret until September 2017. Due to a bizarre clause in the Holmes-Cruise divorce contract, Katie was not allowed to “publicly date” anyone for five years after her marriage to Tom – thus the secrecy.

Why? Who knows? One learns not to waste their time searching for sense and logic in the goings-on of Tom Cruise’s life.

What I will say, though, is that the demise of Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes’ relationship is a Hollywood tragedy.

“They looked so good together!” “She deserves to be happy” you’ll hear me shout to anyone that will listen. But I’m right, you’ll come to see that.

The love life of Katie Holmes has proved nothing, if not complicated…

Kathleen and Martin Holmes brought their brood of five children up in Toledo, Ohio. All of their children were baptized and were taught at Roman Catholic schools. Katie’s dad was an attorney and her mother a homemaker. Their marriage was a successful one and her parents remain together today.

A high achiever at school, Katie got into Columbia University, and her father thought that she might become a doctor. However, after being scouted for modeling work, Holmes’ world opened up to a whole new field of possibilities. She was soon auditioning for acting roles and landed a part in 1997’s Ice Storm.

Booksmart Katie turned down the lead role in Buffy The Vampire Slayer to finish high school.

The dedicated student even nearly lost out on her part in Dawson’s Creek as the audition clashed with her school play. Looking back, Holmes reportedly recalled: “I was doing my school play, Damn Yankees. And I was playing Lola. I even got to wear the feather boa. I thought, ‘There is no way I’m not playing Lola to go audition for some network. I couldn’t let my school down. We had already sold a lot of tickets. So I told Kevin and The WB, ‘I’m sorry. I just can’t meet with you this week. I’ve got other commitments.'”

It was while working on Dawson’s Creek that Katie met her first love, who she dated both on and off the screen, Joshua Jackson.

But, of course, young love was never going to last and the pair broke it off before the third season began.

By the year 2000, Holmes was dating fellow actor, Chris Klein (American Pie).

After three years together, the couple got engaged. It seemed at this point, around Christmas 2003, that Holmes had met her Mr. Right. However, things did not go to plan and the couple called off the wedding plans and announced their separation in March 2005. Whatever happened to this ill-fated romance remained a mystery (no tell-all track like we got from Miley…).

If only she’d known, right? If only any of us had known… I guess, I mean, surely there should have been alarm bells tied to the way that he had treated Nicole Kidman – but, whatever.

Now, you can think what you like, but I’m not far off twenty-six and if a forty-three-year-old tried to marry me, I would not be keen. But, by that point, Cruise had gotten Holmes “interested” into Scientology, so who knows what she was thinking?

If you look really closely, you can see that he is standing on a tiny bag of bones. Just kidding!!

People just love an A-list celeb couple, and an A-list celeb couple getting married(?!) – wow, well that truly is a modern fairytale.

In the photo taken on the day of the wedding, Holmes doesn’t half look like a trapped princess doomed to marry a dreadful prince… perhaps, by this point, she was already doubting the potential union…

The ceremony was awash with notable celebrity faces and the bride and groom, with their new baby in tow, looked picture perfect.

The Cruise clan were often seen out and about with the successful A-list couple (and their brood of kids), the Beckhams. However, the deeper that Tom delved into Scientology, the more distant the family became from their “none- Scientologist” friends.

With her own flailing views on Scientology causing a definitive rift in the marriage.

The terms of the divorce meant that, if Katie wanted to maintain custody of the couple’s daughter, Suri, she would not be allowed to talk about Tom or anything to do with the relationship. I think that if we’re ever going to find out about what happened, it’ll be through some tell-all memoir written by an adult Suri.

….but it’s a secret, so sssh!

Also stipulated in the Cruise divorce was that Katie would not publicly date anyone for five years. As absurd as it sounds, one wonders what the exact reason for this clause was. Could it really be to do with Tom’s ego? Could he not handle the public seeing his ex-wife move on? Surely getting a divorce from someone should mean that they do not get to interfere with your life anymore, but, eh, what do I know?

It’s always important that your partner gets on with your family, right? Talking to People in May this year, Jamie Foxx’s daughter, Corrinne, said that she approved of the couple. She said: “They are so great and Katie is always so chic. They were wonderful.”

Having not seen her own father in many years, Suri probably appreciated that Foxx was there.

After the divorce between Tom and Katie, it has been reported on multiple occasions that the actor has cut ties with both Katie and their shared daughter, Suri.

There’s no denying that Suri looks like a well brought up kid. Her mom has devoted her time to her and, not only given her all of the love and support that she needed, but made sure to enlighten her about the world’s injustices, too. Earlier this year, she took Suri along with her to help refugees in crisis at the Moria Refugee camp in Greece.

Being in a cultish religion can make being a regular dad hard… it’s strange that Tom can make movies doing literally anything, but there are such strict rules regarding his private life. As Katie left the church, it is rumored that Tom is not allowed any contact with her. This probably makes it hard to arrange playdates, I guess…

Imagine if everyone boycotted Tom Cruise’s movies until he saw his kid…

One of the other rumors circulating the internet is that Katie literally had to flee from Tom and his oppressive Scientology ways – fearing that he would brainwash young Suri, she kept them apart. This tweet suggests that both mom and daughter wanted out of the oppressive marriage. But who knows what would have happened if they had stayed? The longer Suri was involved with the organization, the more likely she’s have been to buy into it all.

One of the most common rumors about Katie’s decision to leave Scientology was that Tom wanted to put Suri into the alarming Sea Organization’s boot camp.

Well, basically, it’s like the part of the Scientology family with the most serious and dedicated members of the order. It’s described as a paramilitary organization and many are wary of it due to its totalitarian nature, with a severe lack of basic freedoms for its members. I guess you could say that it’s the most cult-y part of Scientology. It’s no wonder that Katie Holmes wasn’t up for Suri joining up.

And its bad reputation isn’t unwarranted either.

After all that seriously messed up drama with Tom Cruise, to see Katie Holmes with a nice down to earth guy like Jamie Foxx was good news all round.

Multiple sources are claiming that Jamie Foxx was never completely invested in the relationship with Katie Holmes and didn’t really put the work in for the pair to make a real go at it.

It doesn’t seem as though Katie Holmes is too bothered about the break-up, though.

She was seen out, today, following the announcement that her, ex, Jamie Foxx, might be seeing the young and attractive singer, Sela Vave, who he was seen holding hands with while leaving Lil’ Pumps (?) 19th birthday party. Why do men in Hollywood never seem to grow up? If I’m showing up to a nineteen-year-old’s birthday party when I’m fifty-one, dressed in a white hoody that looks like it came straight from the hanger of some shop that plays music too loud, then you may as well go ahead a shoot me. I mean, I like Jamie Foxx, but come on, man.

Nice. Although Foxx has denied the claims that the pair are dating and a source close to the actor has said that he was only holding her hand as they left the club to help to lead the way and that “she’s just a girl he’s helping out, a young singer.” Well, I guess time will tell, eh?

Raising her daughter, Suri. Not having a boyfriend doesn’t seem to bother Katie Holmes. Even when seeing Foxx, Suri was always the priority. So whatever happens next, one thing is for sure: this mother and daughter duo will always be as thick as thieves. That is unless Suri ends up marrying some guy who gets her to join his cult… but how likely is that?
