Rumors about Jamie Foxx’s relationship with Katie Holmes have been swirling about for over a year now. It all started when US Weekly released a grainy photo of the two holding hands back in March 2015. But hand-holding doesn’t exactly prove anything. Still, the rumors never died. And neither Holmes nor Foxx personally confirmed or denied their relationship.
Most likely because not only does Jamie have a long history of keeping his romantic relationships private, Katie went through a very public and very messy one with ex husband Tom Cruise. And speaking of Tom Cruise, perhaps they didn’t want to go public with their boo-ship because Foxx and Cruise stared in a movie together.
Still, it was all just speculation. No social media announcements, no incriminating pictures, and no celebrity cosigns…Until now.
Claudia Jordan, formerly of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and a host of other reality shows spilled all the tea on a podcast called Allegedly. At some point during the show, hosted by Theo Von and Matthew Cole, Jamie Foxx’s name came up. The co-hosts wanted to know if Jordan had ever been involved with Jamie romantically. When she said no, that he was just a good friend, they followed up asking if he were indeed in a relationship with Katie Holmes.
Jordan said, “He is very happy with her, so. I like that he seems very happy.”
That’s it. The confirmation.
You can listen to Jordan’s scoop at the 42 minute mark.
But not even a full day later, when Claudia appeared on “Entertainment Tonight,” she backpedaled with a quickness.
“I’ve never seen Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes together. Ever. I guess people are really wanting someone to confirm this and I’m sorry but it’s not coming from me, I don’t have the knowledge of this being fact. I don’t. I misspoke. I have no knowledge of Jamie and Katie at all. I’ve never seen them together, he’s never told me he’s dating her. Sorry to not have this bombshell story, but I cannot confirm that.”
We’re wondering who hopped on the phone to shut that down…
What’s so interesting is that I’d never thought seriously about whether or not Jamie and Katie were seriously together until this back and forth.
You can watch the backtrack in the video below.
We all know about Spike Lee’s 40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks, Shondaland and the empires belonging to Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry, but did you know the following stars have production companies?
Jamie Foxx’s daughter, Corinne Foxx, 21, has been named Miss Golden Globe 2016 by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, who made the announcement on Tuesday night at the first party of its Awards Season at the Ysabel in West Hollywood.
The model and actress is also a student at the University of Southern California, and has been her dad’s plus one on red carpets since she was a kid. 2004 Best Actor winner
According to People.com, she’s known about the coveted gig for a few weeks, and her superstar dad, the 2004 Best Actor winner, had a priceless reaction: “My dad, he’s a little bit emotional. He won’t admit it, but he had tears in his eyes and he was so happy for me to kind of have my own thing now,” she said.

The annual title is traditionally given to the daughter or son of a celebrity, and their responsibility is to assist in handing out the awards on the big night.
“Like her father, [Corinne] leads a fine example of following her dreams and we can’t wait to see what she does next,” said Lorenzo Soria, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
Past honorees include celebrity off-spring Greer Grammer, Dakota Johnson, Sosie Bacon and Rumer Willis.
Foxx will share the stage with Hollywood’s A-listers – including this year’s Cecil B. DeMille Award recipient Denzel Washington – when the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards air on NBC on Sunday, Jan. 10, 2016, at 8 p.m. ET.
Nominations will be announced on December 10.
Being famous is hard, especially if you’re one of these celebrities with seriously embarrassing parents.
‘Tis the season for hookups and love. That’s right, as the weather changes, that means cuffing season is drawing near. With so many baes to choose from, why not shoot your shot in the direction of some of Black Hollywood’s most elite single men? Prepare to hop on the ‘gram and slide into those DMs as we look at famous fellas who are on the market.
She’s fresh out of season two of “Being Mary Jane” and Gabrielle Union has already snagged another major role. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the beauty will be reuniting with Jamie Foxx in Sleepless Night. The action thriller is a remake of French movie Nuit Blanche.
Foxx has been cast to play a crooked cop who is forced to reclaim a bag of stolen drugs in order to save his son, who has been kidnapped by a ruthless crime boss. He is also tasked with dodging internal-affairs officers who are hot on his trail. Union has been cast to play the rogue cop’s ex-wife, who also assists in the rescue. The film is being produced by Open Road Films and directed by Baran bo Odar.
Union and Foxx have not headlined a film together since 2004 romantic comedy Breakin’ All The Rules. Speaking of Gabby, it is also being reported that she’s in final negotiations to appear in Keanu, a New Line Cinema comedy from Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. Union will be playing Key’s wife, who wishes that her polite husband would become more assertive in and out of their marriage.
If you saw Lil Mo getting dragged this past weekend, it was all because she tried to come for A-list entertainer Jamie Foxx and his rendition of the National Anthem at the Floyd Mayweather/Manny Pacquiao fight.
Now, if you watched the fight you know Jamie’s performance wasn’t perfect but it certainly wasn’t the worst we’ve ever heard. He just took us to church real quick. But the people didn’t love it.
So, when he sat down with Ellen DeGeneres, he explained what went wrong.
“Now, I sung the National Anthem. Now, some people were a little upset about how way it went down. But here’s the thing, anytime a Black person sing the National Anthem you know we gotta…*does a series of riffs and runs* . I mean, that’s just…but what did happen in the ring, my ears came out, my inner ears. My inner ears were out and I’m singing with an organ, so I can’t hear what the organ is doing with the big crowd. So some of it was a little off. But in the arena, it killed. The telecast, it was a little off. But we still, we still love America.”
You can watch Jamie’s rendition of the anthem and his explanation in the video below.
Good black don’t crack and Jamie Foxx is proof of that. He is aging well; however, the truth of the matter is that dude is damn near 50—47 to be exact. So it’s not surprising that his now 21-year-old daughter Corrine Bishop felt the need to check her daddy for robbing the cradle.
Apparently, the actor was still trying to date women in their 20s, but Ms. Corrine was not having it. During a recent interview with Angie Martinez, Jamie recalled a hilarious situation where his daughter met one of his girlfriends who she felt was way too young for him.
“It was this one time where I was dating this girl who was too young a while back. She was legal, but in her 20s. I’m 40, she’s in her 20s. I kept her away from my daughter and then all of a sudden; she ends up in the house with my daughter. I’m not there to [intercede]. Then I walk in like ‘Aye, aye, aye.’ She got the little half shirt on.”
Of course, Corrine clowned him for it.
“My daughter is like, ‘Really dad?’ She says, ‘I’m on my way to school. Should I drop her off for 6th period?’ It was like that, so I talk about those things [on the album] you’re still fly and young, at the same time, you are over 40.”
While I’m all for May-December relationships, I do think that some discretion should be used. Things can get pretty uncomfortable when a parent is dating someone too close to the ages of their children.
Watch Jamie’s hilarious interview below.
Don’t call it a come back.
No seriously, it’s not a comeback. It just has been 5 long years since we received an album from our favorite comedian/actor/singer/he’stootalented, Jamie Foxx. Now, Foxx has announced his new album via Instagram.
In a new post featuring him playing a short clip of his new single, “You Changed Me”, Jamie states “Coming soon…#HOLLYWOOD. Check the cover reveal on @flipagram.”
Foxx also hit up Jimmy Kimmel Live!, to announce his new album. In addition to his annoucement, Jamie served up a few viral hits, including a skit about Tinder. Also during his appearance, Jamie told Kimmel,
“Making albums is different now. you don’t have the luxury of, you know, how you take getting the band together and go to Guam or Laos and lay up and smoke a joint and let it come to us. It’s like, if you don’t get this damn record out, we’re going to fire your ass!”
He also explained how his eldest daughter is keeping him in check: “I had on some shoes, and she was like ‘It’s too young, Dad. You got old feet. You got like Civil Rights feet, so you should have shoes for marching and sit-ins.’” LMAO!!!
Although, no official release date has been announced regarding Hollywood, we couldn’t be more excited. Whose ready for a new album from Jamie?
Here She Goes Again: Khloe Kardashian Says Jamie Foxx Made Transphobic Joke About Bruce Jenner Because He Needs “A Little Press”
You already know that when it comes to her family, Khloe Kardashian does NOT play.
We told you at the beginning of the week that Jamie Foxx was heavily criticized for jokes he made about Bruce Jenner, who we all know is officially going through gender transition.
While hosting the iHeartRadio Awards on Sunday, Foxx said, “We got some groundbreaking performances here, too, tonight. We got Bruce Jenner, who will be here doing some musical performances. He’s doing a his-and-her duet all by himself.”
Foxx continued, saying, “Look, I’m just busting your balls…while I still can.”
Foxx’s name ended up trending on Twitter right after he did the joke and many said that it wasn’t funny, but rather, disrespectful.
No one felt that way more than Jenner’s family, including Khloe Kardashian.
During an interview with The Insider, Kardashian was asked her thoughts on Foxx’s joke, and she said that based on the fact that the Kardashian family knows the comedian, it wasn’t cool.
“I just think it’s a low blow. I think it’s very mean, but you know, I wish him all the best. It is what it is.”
She continued, saying, “I just think — and I know Jamie, so I think that’s also why that’s a really low blow, but hey, guess that’s what he felt the need to do for a little press.”
Considering that this statement is coming from someone in the Kardashian family, such a comeback is quite laughable…
But this isn’t the first time that Kardashian has tried it in an attempt to defend her family members. In February, she went at it with Amber Rose after Rose gave her two cents on 17-year-old Kylie Jenner’s decision to openly date the 25-year-old rapper, Tyga.
As for this particular controversy, Kardashian wasn’t the only family member who spoke out about Foxx’s jokes. Bruce Jenner’s son, Burt Jenner, even tried to call Foxx a Kevin Hart clone. He told TMZ, “I think he is just copying Kevin Hart because Kevin Hart is taking all his movie opportunities.” He continued, “He’s copying him — man’s on a roll and Jamie Foxx is on the way down.”
