Katie Holmes is not dating Josh Lucas, her co-star in the upcoming movie The Secret, despite a false report. Gossip Cop can debunk the romance rumors. The two aren't a new couple.
According to NW, Holmes started a "revenge romance" with Lucas shortly after her recent split from Jamie Foxx. "She thinks the world of Josh - he's laidback, charming and makes her laugh a lot," an alleged source tells the magazine. "Katie is very comfortable with him, which is important as there was a lot of drama with Jamie."
The supposed insider goes on to say that Holmes and Lucas grew close while shooting The Secret in New Orleans last year, but the actress was still dating Foxx so they never pursued a romance. "They stayed in touch after the movie wrapped and now things have moved to the next level," adds the questionable tipster. "They have had several dates in LA and New York."
From there, the seemingly phony source speculates that marriage and children could be in the pair's future. "Josh has come along at the perfect time for Katie - she's been thinking seriously about getting married again and having another baby," adds the anonymous insider. "[Holmes' daughter] Suri would love to see her mom get married again - she and Katie's friends are keeping their fingers crossed that she might finally find lasting happiness."
The tabloid's story is coming from an unknown tipster, but Gossip Cop reached out to Holmes' spokesperson, who tells us on the record that it's completely "made-up." The actress's rep, who's qualified to speak on her behalf, confirms she's not dating Lucas. This story seems to have been concocted simply because Holmes' co-star appears to be single. Additionally, the two stars haven't been photographed together on any dates in New York or Los Angeles. Considering that Holmes is constantly targeted by the paparazzi, it's nearly impossible she wouldn't have been spotted with Lucas if the two were meeting up in public.
Unfortunately, NW has been printing a lot of fiction about the actress in the wake of her breakup from Foxx. Just a few weeks ago, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Holmes was "heartbroken" and "starving herself" following the split. Shortly after that, we called out the magazine for making up a story about Tom Cruise begging Holmes to take him back following her breakup.
Gossip Cop should also mention, the outlet insisted last month that Holmes was pregnant with Foxx's baby. The unreliable publication seems to make up stories about the actress as it goes along. This latest scenario involving a romance with Lucas is more fiction.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
