Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx did not go public or come out as a couple because they're "tired of living a lie," claims a site that regularly traffics in lies. Gossip Cop can bust this inaccurate report. We're told the "story is totally false."

According to HollywoodLife, Foxx and Holmes "decided it was time to stop hiding their 4-year long romance." The site, which it often called HollywoodLies because of its penchant for fibbing, asserts that it supposedly knows "why they went public over Labor Day weekend." One of the outlet's seemingly fake sources is quoted as saying, "Katie and Jamie are finally in a place where they are OK with the world knowing about their big secret." The repeatedly discredited blog's "insider" adds, "They felt they were tired of living a lie to the rest of the world."

The webloid's highly suspect "insider" further contends, "The timing is right for them to take the relationship out from the shadows as they are truly, confident, secure with their relationship and totally in love." "Maybe a red carpet debut is coming up next?" speculates the habitually mistaken site.

Allow Gossip Cop to separate the facts from HollywoodLies' fiction. Holmes and Foxx did not go "public," nor did they come out as a couple. They were photographed by paparazzi hiding far away, using long lenses to snap pictures of them walking along a beach in Malibu. And there most assuredly was no announcement about them dating or Foxx and Holmes acknowledging the status of their relationship.

Despite the seemingly fabricated quotes from the website's alleged "insider," Foxx and Holmes did not decide "it was time to stop hiding." They also are not "tired of living a lie." They may, however, be tired of lies written about them.

In reality, a space which is foreign to HollywoodLies, Holmes and Foxx are close. They hang out from time to time, but this is not a love story for the ages. And they certainly are not going to make a red carpet debut in the near future.

A source close to the situation exclusively tells Gossip Cop that the website's latest story is "completely false." To say HollywoodLife has little credibility when it comes to the two stars would be an overstatement. Last year, in the span of just one month, HollywoodLies reported that Holmes and Foxx had a secret wedding, followed by a claim they had split. None of that was true, and the same can be said of the outlet's newest article.
