Actors Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx, who have denied reports since 2013 that they are a couple, were photographed on Labor Day strolling hand-in-hand along the beach in Malibu, California.
TMZ.com and the U.K. newspaper the Daily Mail each ran roughly four dozen images of the two, fully dressed and wearing fedoras, as they walked in the surf and relaxed on the patio of a beachfront home. Academy Award-winner Foxx, 49, sported a black or dark blue T-shirt and sweatpants while Holmes, 38, currently appearing in “Logan Lucky” and upcoming in “Ocean’s Eight,” wore a loosefitting, below-the-knee, blue pattered dress.
Neither has commented on social media.
The two were first seen together at the fourth annual Apollo in the Hamptons benefit on Aug. 24, 2013, at the East Hampton mansion of Apollo Theater board member Ron Perelman. There, Holmes and Foxx danced together to Lenny Kravitz and Jon Bon Jovi performing Kravitz’s hit “American Woman.” Foxx that October denied rumors the two subsequently had spent time together at Holmes’ apartment in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood, telling “Entertainment Tonight” the reports were “one hundred percent not true,” adding, “In fact, it’s quite hilarious because we simply danced at a charity event along with a lot of other people.”
In March 2015, Us Weekly ran a photo of the two holding hands the month before in what later reports called a home recording studio. Then in June the following year, Foxx’s friend, actress and former “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast-member Claudia Jordan told the podcast “Allegedly with Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weiss” of Foxx and Holmes, “He is very happy with her, so . . . I like that he seems very happy.”
She quickly backtracked, telling “Entertainment Tonight,” “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,” adding, “I have no knowledge of Jamie with Katie at all. I’ve never seen them together; he’s never told me he’s dating her.”
Holmes’ 2006 marriage to film star Tom Cruise, with whom she has 11-year-old daughter Suri, ended in August 2012. Foxx has never been married, but he has two daughters, whose mothers’ identities have remained a secret.
