One of this week's tabloids claims Katie Holmes got a "$50,000 makeover" following her so-called "split" from Jamie Foxx. The story is wrong on every level. Gossip Cop can debunk it.
Earlier this month, Holmes looked sleek and stylish at the opening of Neiman Marcus' new flagship store in New York City. Of course, there's nothing so unusual about an actress putting herself together for a public event where she's going to be photographed. Life & Style, however, insists Holmes "was sending a clear message: I'm single and I've still got it."
An alleged insider tells the magazine that Holmes and Foxx ended their romance last month, and she's "made a concerted effort to get back out there," starting with a "breakup makeover." The supposed source adds, "It was difficult for her to get over her split with Jamie. But now, she's more confident than she's ever been and it really shows."
The suspicious tipster adds, "Katie's not holding back; when you add in all the factors, including the clothing and the glam squad, she easily spent $50,000." The seemingly phony source concludes, "She looks chic, sexy and powerful. Eat your heart out, Jamie!"
The tabloid's phony story is very poorly-timed. Earlier this week, Holmes and Foxx were spotted taking a stroll through Central Park in New York, proving they're still very much together. It's worth noting, the two don't have the most conventional of relationships. "Entertainment Tonight" reported last year that Holmes and Foxx have "very independent lives," and "it's not uncommon for them to go long stretches without seeing each other."
As for the "$50,000 makeover," Gossip Cop checked in with Holmes' spokesperson, who tells us on the record it's untrue. The actress didn't spend an exorbitant amount of money on her appearance in the wake of a nonexistent "split." Holmes simply got dolled up for a public event, and that's where this story begins and ends. Despite what the magazine's anonymous "source" claims, the actress's rep assures us she didn't undergo an expensive makeover following a breakup that didn't occur.
Life & Style is the same outlet that Gossip Cop busted in December for falsely claiming Foxx had "dumped" Holmes on her 40th birthday. In reality, the couple celebrated her birthday together at a restaurant in New York. It's also worth noting, the outlet seems to have a preoccupation with the idea of the actress undergoing a costly "makeover." Last year, Gossip Cop called out the magazine for making up a story about Holmes spending thousands of dollars to "look sexy" for Foxx. This latest take on the subject is even more baseless.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
