It’s been six long, mysterious years but it looks like Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx’s relationship is officially over. Well, as official as a couple who never officially announced they actually were a couple over the last six years could be.
Us Weekly reports that Holmes is the one who called things off, while People‘s source kept it pretty neutral, simply confirming the split, and adding that they’ve been done for a while and parted ways in May. So, wait. Was it all our fault? For years, we’ve wanted these two to confirm that they were dating and it was just until this past couple years or so, they began giving us glimpses into their super-private lives. Whether they were spotted holding hands, being photographed on vacation, or going out for ice cream, this past year or so has been less about the two arriving at the same place in different cars and leaving through different exits, and more about simply living their lives. And for the most part, we eventually accepted it. They were a couple, their relationship was a closely guarded secret, and things were all good. Until they weren’t.
Because if they’ve been over since May, then perhaps things got a little too real for them. The Met Gala was in May and they attended it together. Now, that’s a pretty big event for two people who are used to staying out of the spotlight and perhaps they, as a unit, weren’t able to navigate this new world compared to the bubble they lived in for so long. What should’ve been just another date in the course of their relationship, a continuation of their clandestine love story, was instead the beginning of the end of it.
Holmes and Foxx have been together since 2013, shortly after Katie and Tom Cruise divorced. In the beginning, they kept their relationship quiet out of respect for her ex-husband and Jamie’s friend and Collateral co-star (not to mention that rumoured clause in her divorce settlement that prevented her from dating another man for five years).
This isn’t the first time there have been breakup rumours about these two. But with Jamie spotted getting close with another woman over the last few days (or throughout the summer, if her Instagram post from June means anything), these reports are easier to believe. Reports claim Sela Vave is simply a young singer whom Jamie is helping out, and that could very well be the case. But with numerous sources confirming Katie and Jamie are done, it appears they just might be this time.
