The lives of Hollywood stars Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx, and Katie Holmes have been interconnected 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. But the more staggering revelation that rubbed salt into the Mission Impossible star’s would come nearly a year later in 2013 when 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.”
Katie Holmes for her part was quoted to have said that she was open to finding true love again after her very public breakup with Tom Cruise. The Batman Begins star and the Ray actor made their first official outing as a couple during Clive Davis’s annual pre-Grammys bash in NYC in 2018. But their romance hit a roadblock after 6 years of alleged dating with both actors calling it quit in 2019.
