It’s not easy keeping a secret in Hollywood. From marriages to divorces and everything in between, fans love to keep tabs on the romantic relationships of the rich and famous. There’s always plenty of gossip about the next hot celebrity couple or breakup. But from time to time, relationships that would seem pretty high profile fly completely under the radar — and that’s usually because the stars themselves want to keep their romance quiet.
Here are 15 past and present relationships that celebrities managed to keep secret.
1. Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes
They’re one of the most talked-about couples in Hollywood. And, it turns out, Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes have actually been seeing each other for years. The incredibly low-key couple are both mega-famous in their own right. Foxx has found success in music and film, even winning an Oscar for his portrayal of Ray Charles. Holmes successfully made the transition from teen TV star to full-fledged movie star in the mid-2000s — and that was before she married Tom Cruise.
According to sources close to the couple, Foxx and Holmes have been together since at least 2013. And though there were frequent rumors about their relationship, they didn’t go public until late summer 2017. Some speculated that there was a stipulation in Holmes’ divorce settlement that prohibited her from dating for five years.
That rumor is unsubstantiated, and we may never know why the couple stayed quiet so long. But it’s clear that they may finally be tired of keeping their love a secret.
