Jamie Foxx’s girlfriend was not impressed about rumours he was dating Katie Holmes.
Reports surfaced last month that the 47-year-old had been dating the former Dawson’s Creek star for over a year in secret. While Jamie has already denied the claims, during a chat with Dish Nation, he revealed that he wasn’t the only one unimpressed by the inaccurate stories.
“I’m not the person who wants to be defined by anybody I date. Even if I was dating someone, no one would know anyway," he said. “But it affects my situation because I got a girl, who’s like ‘yo, who’s this b****?’.”
While Jamie didn’t name the lady in question, he added that a picture of him and Katie on the set of an animated movie they were working on didn’t help matters. The photo appeared to show the actor holding hands with the 36-year-old while she held a phone in the other but Jamie said it was clever editing.
To further his point about how inappropriate the rumours were, the star added to hosts Rickey Smiley, Gary With Da Tea and Rock T that he would never disrespect his Collateral co-star and Katie’s ex-wife, Tom Cruise.
The pair made the movie two years before the 52-year-old married Katie in Italy.
“We were friendly when we did the movie,” he explained. “You know how Hollywood is… They’re not necessarily your best friends but you have respect for them.”
The recent rumours aren’t the first time that Jamie and Katie have been linked. Speculation has surrounded the pair on and off for years, which the Django Unchained actor referred to when he most recently shot down the speculation.
“Oh come on you guys have been trying to make that stick for three years, we're just friends,” he told TMZ.
