It has been noted that the lives of Hollywood stars Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx, and Katie Holmes have been intertwined but not always in the most positive ways. Cruise and Foxx became friends on the sets of their 1994 action film Collateral.
The Top Gun actor then dated and married Katie Holmes in 2006. Together, they were one of the most popular celebrity couples known by their joint moniker “Tomkat”. In 2012, Holmes and Cruise shocked fans by announcing their separation after 5 years of marriage.
However, the more staggering revelation that made it worse was that nearly a year later in 2013 Katie Holmes hooked up with Cruise’s friend and co-actor, Jamie Foxx.
In 2013, just a few months after her divorce from Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes was spotted dancing with actor-singer Jamie Foxx at a star-studded Hampton party. While both actors refrained from commenting on their appearance together, they continued to meet in public and were seen holding hands for the first time in 2015.
The alleged couple was also pictured taking romantic holidays together and were clicked attending many public events jointly. Despite the physical evidence of their relationship, both stars remained ambiguous, neither confirming nor denying their involvement. According to Jamie Foxx’s rep,
“[They] see each other and go out together, but Jamie would tell you he is not involved with anyone seriously. [He]’s a workaholic and couldn’t be happier in his life as it is.”
Amid all the speculation and talk about Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx’s private romance, Holmes’ ex-husband Tom Cruise was reported to be heartbroken at the turn of events. Foxx and Holmes, who began secretly dating in 2013, never openly confirmed their relationship.
It was only after 2015 when the couple displayed their affection in public at various events, that Tom Cruise allegedly came to know of their affair. According to quotes from inside sources,
“Tom is shocked and upset that Katie is dating a costar he once considered a close friend. He feels betrayed by both of them.”
