Ever since 2013, gossip magazines and websites have been hinting at a romance between Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes but the two have never publicly acknowledged their rumored relationship. If current rumors are indeed true, Holmes’ 2012 high-profile divorce agreement with ex-husband Cruise prevented her from going public with Foxx as she is allegedly bound by a clause which barred her from dating publicly for five years afterwards. The idea of the Oscar-winning actor (Foxx) dating Dawson’s Creek’s sweet little Joey Potter (Holmes) would likely not go down well with Tom Cruise. You may not recall, but Cruise and Foxx had a bromance which evolved after they starred together in Collateral back in ’04.
Well, earlier this week celebrity gossip site Radar Online claimed, “Katie signed a clause in her quickie divorce settlement that prevents her from embarrassing Tom in various ways, like talking about him or Scientology, or publicly dating another man for five years after the divorce.” The report further stated, “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.” Within days of their announced divorce in 2012, the actress signed an agreement for a quick separation and was awarded custody of daughter Suri.
According to Radar online, “Katie wanted out of the marriage so badly, she agreed to the terms – and got $4.8m in child support, plus another $5m for herself,” a source told the website. According to reports, Holmes and Foxx made headlines when they were first spotted together at an event in The Hamptons in August 2013. However, The Kingdom actor denied the rumors saying they were “one hundred percent not true.” That said, other websites have said the alleged divorce clause should be taken with a pinch of salt as it has not been independently verified. Who knows what the REAL deal is, but this “agreement” seems to make sense if her romance with Jamie Foxx is indeed a real thing.
