Whatever the nature of Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx relationship—what it was, what it is, what it may be—for two of the world’s more visible people, they’ve done an amazing job remaining invisible as a unit.
For going on years now, the actors have been romantically linked, at some times more than others. In June, Foxx’s pal Claudia Jordan seemingly backed up what everyone thought they may have known, saying in a radio interview with regard to Holmes, “He is very happy with her. I like that he seems very happy.”
“I have no knowledge of Jamie with Katie at all. I’ve never seen them together. He’s never told me he’s dating her,” she told ET after her show of support for Foxx was mistaken for a confirmation.
The pair aren’t keeping their relationship status a secret from their friends, but that must refer to the most inward of inner circles. Not only is only the slightest bit of information about where they go and what they do together available, but they’ve only been photographed in the same place (after Katie’s marriage to Tom Cruiseended, that is) twice.
Once they shared the stage at a benefit in New York and another time they were kinda exhibiting PDA in a grainy photo taken in a recording studio.
And yet where there’s smoke, there’s fire, so the insiders who know for sure that Holmes and Foxx are the smoothest of operators, all-time champions at keeping a very important part of their personal lives completely off the radar (minus all the headlines ending in question marks), have still succeeded for the most part at keeping the big secret.
But even though it’s impossible for anyone besides those two to know exactly what’s going on, just because it isn’t, like, Instagram-official doesn’t mean there isn’t a relationship. And if there’s a relationship, that means there’s a chance it can end.
Radar Online reported yesterday that it was over, that Foxx had broken things off because Holmes was over the secret portion of their journey and wanted to go public.
Seriously, how could she… want something normal after finally getting over her jitters about what could go wrong if a relationship goes too public and too over-the-top too fast.
Anyway, the report described the relationship as a little off-and-on in the first place, with Foxx now claiming he needed at least a few months of space.
Page Six followed up last night with another source supporting that assessment of events, saying, “Jamie wants to continue to act like the carefree guy he is in public. Eventually, the question had to come about whether he was committed enough to the relationship.”
A source tells, however, that they’re still together. And not only that, they’re still both so on board with the status quo, they don’t mind one bit if people start going around thinking they broke up.
