Rumors have been swirling across the internet suggesting that Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes were dating, but Jamie is clearing the air. The rumors began when he and Katie were spotted dancing together at a recent charity event, but he says that they are platonic pals.
In a new interview, Jamie said, “[The rumors] are one hundred percent not true. In fact, it’s quite hilarious because we simply danced at a charity event along with a lot of other people.”
On Saturday, August 24th was when the dancing went down at a benefit in the Hamptons. Jamie and Katie were in attendance, along with Pharrell and Ellen DeGeneres, among others.
Us Magazine reports:
A Holmes pal told Us Weekly at the time that the two “weren’t flirting and have been friends a long time.” But Foxx may have wanted more. One eyewitness said the actor “grabbed her butt and tried to seal the deal” after a dance — to no avail.
“She was flattered, but not interested,” the observer told Us of the Mania Days actress, mom to daughter Suri, 7, with ex-husband Tom Cruise, who costarred with Foxx in 2004’s Collateral.
