I remember reading a blurb in Us Weekly last year about Katie Holmes dropping the L bomb on Jamie Foxx over the phone after landing at LAX.
“She said she loved him,” a source told the magazine.
“She always gushes about how amazing he is and the joy he brings into the world.”
Welp, The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Claudia Jordan – who considers herself good friends with Foxx – blabbed about the couple on Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weiss’ Allegedly podcast, confirming that Holmes and Foxx are an item.
Foxx’s “good friend” told the hosts.
“He is very happy with her. I like that he seems very happy.”
The two have reportedly been dating since October 2013, but have denied their courtship several times.
In 2013, they were spotted dancing at the Apollo Theater’s annual charity bash in the Hamptons, and were seen leaving a recording studio holding hands in 2015.
Lately, they’ve upgraded from “we’re not together” to “it’s not a secret” among their friends, according to E! News.
Foxx and Holmes subscribe to Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s old routine, which involves arriving and leaving a venue separately, and never being photographed together.
“Jamie is someone she can trust and have fun with,” a source told Us Weekly back in 2013.
Foxx reportedly refers to Holmes as “my girl.”
For instance, when she called him from LAX, he told friends “my girl is calling.”
Holmes is currently in Toronto shooting The Kennedys: After Camelot. New York Daily News claims Foxx was spotted in the Canadian city this month, presumably to visit his “girl.”
Holmes and Tom Cruise (parents to Suri, 10) divorced in 2012.
Foxx has two daughters from two previous relationships – Corinne, 22, and Annalise, 6. Corinne was 2016’s Miss Gold Globe Awards (stars who previously held the position include Dakota Johnson, Francesca Eastwood, Greer Grammer and Rumer Willis).
