Who Is Sela Vave, the Woman Sparking Romance Rumors With Jamie Foxx?

Multiple publications later identified the gorgeous brunette as Sela Vave. But who is she exactly, and how does she know Foxx?

Vave’s relationship with Foxx isn’t romantic

Vave and Foxx may have looked like a couple when they stepped out on Aug. 17, but that’s reportedly not the case. Vave, a singer, songwriter, and model, is reportedly Foxx’s newest artist. 

“She’s just a girl he’s helping out, a young singer,” a source told People magazine on Aug. 17.

In fact, it seems like the only reason they went out was so that Foxx could introduce Vave to some people in the music world. E! News reports that hip hop newcomer Lil Pump had been at the club celebrating his 19th birthday.

What Vave has said about Foxx

The singer often comments on Foxx through her Instagram page, which has over 6,000 followers.

In July, she posted a clip from a joint interview she did with Foxx for Power 106, in which he reflected on how they met and praised her musical talents. “It’s seriously such a blessing to be surrounded by and learn from some of the best in the business,” she captioned the post. “I’m constantly in awe of their talent.”

The previous month, she posted another sweet tribute to the Oscar winner. “I am so grateful to this man!” she captioned a photo of the two. “Thank you so much @iamjamiefoxx for everything you do and for believing in me.”

Are Foxx and Holmes still together?

This one is tricky. While it seems that Foxx and Vave share a professional relationship, the Django Unchained actor was also seen with another woman on Aug. 15. 

The extent of their relationship is unclear. But Us Weekly reports that he and the “blonde mystery woman” visited a restaurant and lounge in Hollywood called the Delilah and Highlight Room.

The same week, Holmes was seen in New York, “looking like she didn’t have a care in the world,” according to TMZ. The outlet notes that it’s not the first time that Dawson’s Creek alum has been out in New York by herself, which suggests that their reported six-year romance is still going strong. However, TMZ also points out that Foxx hasn’t gotten “so close” to women until now, either, which might make you raise an eyebrow.

The last time they were together publicly was at the Met Gala back in May. However, the two tend to stay away from cameras, so that’s not exactly out of the ordinary. 

Sources also told People magazine in April that the actors keep busy schedules, so they see each other when they can. 

“When they can spend time together, they do,” the insider explained. “When they’re busy and they can’t, they don’t. They are two adults who enjoy each other’s company and have for a long time,” the insider said.

So, maybe they are still together. Or, perhaps they aren’t.
