Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx have been very tight-lipped about their relationship, but that hasn’t stopped the tabloids from constantly making up stories about the actor dumping the actress. Gossip Cop has debunked many takes on the subject. Here are a few false rumors regarding the couple’s status.
In April, Gossip Cop busted the National Enquirer for publishing a false piece claiming Foxx had “dumped” Holmes so he could see other “hot chicks.” Quoting an alleged insider, the tabloid stated that “Jamie can’t control himself. He’s still attracted to Katie, but there’s no way he wants to get serious with her.” Nothing about the story was true.
Multiple sources told Gossip Cop that the two were still very much together and that they have a “casual romance,” meaning they’re not attached at the hip. This was also backed up People magazine, which noted that the couple “spend time together” when it’s convenient but “when they’re busy and can’t, they don’t.” Just a couple weeks after the phony article was published, the couple attended the Met Gala together.
In December of last year, Gossip Cop busted Life & Style for publishing a bogus story about Foxx dumping Holmes on her 40th birthday. A supposed “insider” told the magazine, “Katie and Jamie are done. She really thought Jamie was going to propose for her birthday, but instead he dumped her.” Adding insult to the alleged injury, the source went on to say the breakup was by phone. “Jamie called Katie up and told her he needed space. He was pretty blunt.” The story was laughably wrong. In reality, Holmes and Foxx celebrated her 40th birthday together at Serendipity in New York City, where they were joined by the actress’s mom.
In May 2018, the Globe wrongly reported that Foxx had left Holmes at the altar. The article came just after the same tabloid claimed the two were getting married in a “summer wedding.” After Gossip Cop debunked that fake wedding story, the magazine switched tactics to cover its tracks and published this nonsense about Holmes being left in tears at the altar.
The outlet alleged that Foxx was a “cheater” who had rekindled things with his ex, Kristin Grannis, devastating Holmes. The outlet even called her a “wannabe wife” who was “desperate to tie Jamie down.” It was never clarified how the two somehow went from planning a wedding to breaking up at the altar.
The tabloid even tried to say that Foxx had been interacting with Grannis behind Holmes’ back. That allegation didn’t make sense considering that the actor and his ex had been seen together multiple times in public while co-parenting their young daughter. There was no sneaking around or anything romantic going on between the two.
Finally, MediaTakeOut also published a fake story about Foxx’s relationship with Grannis impacting his romance with Holmes. The blog falsely reported that Foxx dumped Holmes for his “baby mama.” The site even went as far as to call the two “lovers,” citing a photo of Foxx and Grannis standing close to one another while watching over their daughter during a Fourth of July celebration.
Gossip Cop pointed out that the photos meant nothing, because Foxx and Grannis have often been photographed together before. It’s not surprising since, again, the two do have a child that they co-parent together. Like we said, they’re raising their daughter, so of course they’re going to be together and friendly sometimes. That doesn’t mean anything romantic has resurfaced between the two exes. It certainly doesn’t mean Foxx has dumped Holmes either.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
