Joshua Jackson has not been spending time with Katie Holmes and her daughter Suri Cruise, despite a new report claiming the former "Dawson's Creek" co-stars are rekindling a romance. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this story, which uses doctored photos to make it appear they're a couple. Reps for both stars tell us it's false.
According to NW, Jackson has been spotted around New York City with Holmes and her 12-year-old daughter over the past several weeks. It's then said that the actor and actress, who briefly dated in the late '90s during the early run of their TV series, are "very eager" to become a couple again. A so-called "source" is quoted telling the magazine, "They're fast becoming quite the family unit. It's really cute to see. Suri and Josh get on extremely well and Katie adores seeing them interact with one another."
Holmes has always "regretted letting him go," maintains the seemingly phony tipster, who adds, "seeing Josh with Suri fills Katie's heart with so much joy." The outlet's alleged insider further contends that Holmes and Jackson revived their "romance" at the "Dawson's Creek" reunion in March, around the time the actress's relationship with Jamie Foxx supposedly "started going south." "She didn't really know where she stood with Jamie. She thought he was happy about making their romance more public, but it seems like he wasn't," asserts the supposed source.
Of course, that's provably untrue since Foxx and Holmes were spotted on a date night at Nobu in New York less than two weeks ago. It's also been widely reported by reputable outlets that the pair are on the same page when it comes to keeping their relationship private.
As for Jackson, Star made up a similar story last month about Holmes dumping Foxx for her former boyfriend. However, the actress's spokesperson told Gossip Cop on the record there was no truth to the claim, further noting that the two "don't speak [regularly]." Jackson's rep also shot down the bogus report, telling us it was "hilarious." We're now told the actor hasn't been hanging out with Holmes and her daughter either.
Significantly, NW unscrupulously doctored images (below) to make it appear as if Jackson was photographed walking around New York with Holmes and her little girl. The fake images feature the pair smiling and chatting with Suri in tow, along with captions filled with fabricated quotes about the three of them. Only, the phony pictures are composite of separate photos, one of Holmes and Suri walking with a woman in New York last August (well before the "Dawson's Creek" reunion), and another of Jackson taking a stroll with ex-girlfriend Diane Kruger nearly three years ago in June 2015. See the photoshopped pictures below.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
