Jamie Foxx, Katie Holmes, Matthew Perry Love Triangle Claim NOT True
Wednesday’s new edition of the National Enquirer features this headline, “Jamie Steps In To Cool Matt & Katie’s ‘Camelot’ Heat.” The accompanying story claims Perry and Holmes “acted like more than ‘Friends’ while filming the TV miniseries ‘The Kennedys After Camelot’ — shaking up Katie’s down-low beau, Jamie Foxx!”
“Matt flirted with Katie in front of everyone, and made no secret of his affection for her,” an “on-set source” is quoted as saying. According to the supermarket tabloid, “that prompted Jamie to secretly visit the film’s Toronto set in mid-June.” The supposed tipster alleges, “He made it clear to Matt that Katie is a taken woman.”
The magazine never explains why this is only being reported now if it happened two months ago. There’s also no explanation for why Foxx was never photographed at the set, despite all the paparazzi photos that emerged during the production’s shoot. What’s more, though, is that this story is based on two false premises.
It was the outlet’s sister publication OK! that first claimed Holmes and Perry were a “new couple” after “constantly flirting” during filming. A rep for the actress, however, exclusively told Gossip Cop there was “no truth” to the allegation. It’s not any more true now that the National Enquirer is regurgitating it.
Secondly, it was this very same tabloid that alleged Holmes and Foxx were “married” back in March. If that were true, it would’ve been known to Perry, and there would’ve been no need for Foxx to “step in” and put the actor in his place. But here’s the kicker: Foxx and Holmes aren’t a couple, so there was no need for him to take action regardless.
So, the two big allegations in this story — Foxx and Holmes are together, Holmes and Perry’s flirting upset Foxx — are both wildly off-base. The former “Dawson’s Creek” star isn’t romantically involved with either guy. And despite the magazine’s attempts at manufacturing one, there simply isn’t a love triangle here.
