Did Katie Holmes tell Jamie Foxx to dump Leonardo DiCaprio as a friend or she'll end their relationship? That's the claim in one of this week's tabloids. Gossip Cop can debunk the ridiculous premise.
An alleged insider tells the Globe that Holmes doesn't want Foxx associating with his Django Unchained co-star because she "knows Leo's one of the biggest skirt-chasers in Hollywood and Jamie already has a sweet tooth for eye candy." The outlet's questionable source adds, "She wants Jamie to settle down into family mode with her and Suri and not go catting around. If he hangs with Leo, he's sure to get into trouble."
This narrative is bogus from the very start. It's been widely established by reputable outlets such as People that Holmes and Foxx "have their own separate lives and they aren't trying to join them together." The publication also noted that Foxx "hasn't spent much time" with Holmes' daughter. The actress isn't begging him to settle down and play the role of family man.
Still, the magazine's supposed source continues, "Katie doesn't want Jamie hanging around Leo. She is desperate for Jamie to commit and doesn't want him living it up with one of Hollywood's most notorious playboys." The seemingly phony tipster adds, "Her biggest fear is that Jamie will be sucked back into that world. She's made it clear that if he wants a future with her, he needs to keep his distance from Leo."
The tabloid doesn't mention that Holmes and DiCaprio sat together at a private table at Jamie Foxx's 50th birthday party last December. If Holmes truly disliked the movie star, she probably would have avoided him at the large bash. Instead, the actress sat with him while Foxx performed on stage.
Regardless, the outlet's story is based on claims from an anonymous and untraceable "source," but Gossip Cop checked in with Holmes' spokesperson, who tells us on the record that the article is "untrue." As we've also noted in the past, Holmes and Foxx enjoy spending time together when their schedules allow it, but they're not a committed couple in the traditional sense. The actress also isn't dictating who's allowed to be in Foxx's social circle.
Additionally, the Globe has proven to be very untrustworthy when it comes to accurately reporting about the pair's romance. Gossip Cop busted the tabloid in May for falsely claiming that Holmes and Foxx were getting married at some point over the summer. The summer has passed and the two never walked down the aisle. This latest article involving DiCaprio is more fiction.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
