Did Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes Really Break Up Over The Woman He Was Seen With?

It’s official. What was once one of Hollywood’s most secretive couplings has ended: Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes. Ever since Holmes divorced Tom Cruise in 2012, rumors swirled about her dating life, and she was first linked to Foxx back in 2013. For years, the two denied they were romantically involved, but it’s been revealed that they were dating for six years.

Although they tried to keep things private, Foxx and Holmes were frequently spotted out together and photographed in the midst of PDA sessions or sneaking into and out of events separately. They made their debut at the Met Gala in May, finally quelling the “are they a couple or not” gossip.

But this week, Foxx was seen hanging out with a young woman in West Hollywood in the wee hours of the morning. That led many to believe he was cheating. But was this person really the cause of their breakup?

It’s said the mystery woman is just a friend of Foxx

On Friday night (August 16), paparazzi snapped images of Foxx and the young lady—whose name is Sela Vave—leaving a club at 2:00 in the morning, People reports. Foxx, who had a hoodie pulled over his head, and Vave were walking hand-in-hand.

That left people wondering if he was caught doing Holmes or dirty or if he’s in a new relationship. Holmes fans immediately started to swarm Vave’s social media accounts, calling her a homewrecker and other unsavory names.

It was later reported that Vave is a singer and one of Foxx’s protégés . For those who didn’t know and those who forgot, Foxx is a talented singer who has not only had his own recording contract, but also launched his own record label. Per the People report, the word on Vave is “She’s just a girl he’s helping out, a young singer.”

Why it’s possible that Foxx and Holmes didn’t split because of Vave

While the internet was busy being nosy about the status of this celebrity relationship, Holmes was spotted out and about looking unbothered. Page Six was the first to break the news about the pair’s end. Months ago, everything seemed all good with the couple, and Foxx’s daughter Corinne even opened up about their relationship, saying they were great and that her father was really happy, Entertainment Tonight reported.

But according to Page Six, the couple hasn’t been together since May, and Holmes reportedly told a friend on Saturday, “What Jamie does is his business—we haven’t been together for months.”

Vave and Foxx have been professionally promoting her music for a couple of months now, so when it comes to this breakup, the singer could very well be a non-factor.

How Holmes and Foxx are handling the media scrutiny

When they were an item, they were notoriously cagy and private about their relationship, and that’s exactly how they’ve been since the split. None of the reps for Foxx, Holmes, or Vave herself have commented on the breakup news.

Meanwhile, Hollywood Life posted pictures of Holmes and her daughter, Suri, walking their dog on August 19. Life goes on, but some fans are holding out hope that these two celebs could reconcile one day and perhaps find their way back to each other.
