Katie Holmes is not "heartbroken" and starving herself following her recent split from Jamie Foxx, despite a bogus tabloid report. Gossip Cop can debunk the story. We've learned the actress isn't having any sort of meltdown in the wake of the breakup.
This week's cover of NW claims the actress has been distraught since her relationship with Foxx ended, especially after watching him "entertain over 30 women in his first weekend as a single man." The tabloid contends that Holmes has lost more than 20 pounds since the split, and includes a very unflattering photo in an attempt to back up the claim.
A supposed "insider" is quoted as saying, "The weight's melting off her, poor thing, but she's at risk of losing even more. Her clothes are just falling off her and food is the last thing on her mind." The article further maintains that the 5'9" actress now weighs a scant 92 pounds.
The alleged insider goes on to blame Foxx for the "heartbreak diet," saying, "Jamie's really done a number on her self-esteem - and consequently her health. Stress and heartbreak are playing havoc on her physically and right now she just feels too sick to eat. Katie can't be taking in more than 500 calories a day, if that."
The outlet's story is based on the word of an anonymous tipster, but Gossip Cop reached out to Holmes' spokesperson, who tells us on the record that it's untrue. The actress's rep, who's qualified to speak on her behalf, assures us she's perfectly "happy."
The tabloids have been churning out many false reports in the wake of Holmes and Foxx ending their casual romance. As Gossip Cop has noted, the two never considered themselves to be a conventional couple, despite seeing each other on and off for years. Last week, we busted a Woman's Day story claiming Holmes was devastated because Foxx had been partying with 30 women in a single weekend. That false scenario is now being used by NW for yet another bogus story about their split.
Just last month, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Holmes was pregnant with Foxx's baby and planned to raise the child alone. Naturally, the actress isn't expecting a baby. Oddly enough, that article said Holmes was fine letting the actor "date who he wants," while she raises a child without him. One month later, the same outlet is making no mention of a pregnancy and instead says Holmes is so upset over Foxx dating other women that she isn't eating. The magazine has never had any insight into their relationship and doesn't know any more about their split.
It should be mentioned, the photos that NW uses to illustrate its story are both misleading and out of date. The cover story photo, depicting the actress with sharp cheeks and roughly applied makeup under her eyes in a denim dress, was pulled from a shot of Holmes in character on set of her directorial debut, All We Had. That movie was shot in 2015 - a full four years before her so-called "heartbreak."
Another "heartbreak" photo inside the magazine shows Holmes at a pool, sucking in her stomach as she takes off a pair of shorts covering her bikini. Additional images of the actress at the pool, as published on PopSugar, make it clear that she was only inhaling in that single pose. The bigger issue about these photos is that they're from 2011 when she was still married to Tom Cruise.
The publication is trying to frame photos from a 2015 movie set and another one from eight years ago as a reflection of her current status. The outlet is too lazy to come up with a story that even makes sense chronologically. The magazine's own photos exposes its story as fiction.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
