Fans will recall the Django Unchained actor and Dawson’s Creek star were spotted dancing the night away at the Apollo in the Hamptons benefit back in 2013—about a year after the actress finalized her divorce from Tom Cruise. While Foxx spent years denying the two were anything but friends, fans could sense there was something more.
Then, in 2016, their relationship status seemed to be confirmed after Claudia Jordan told the Allegedly podcast Foxx was “very happy” with Holmes. However, the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star later retracted her statement and said she “misspoke.” As a result, Holmes and Foxx’s relationship status remained a mystery.
After years of speculation, the duo finally decided to make a public move. In 2017, the two were photographed holding hands during a walk on the beach. Holmes also attended Foxx’s 50th birthday party at the end of that year.
“They are really happy,” an insider told E! News in 2017. “It’s easy and they are for sure very much in love.”
Since then, the pair has given fans little glimpses into their private life. Earlier this year, they cozied up at a pre-Grammys gala. They also enjoyed several dinner dates in New York this summer. Still, neither star has formally confirmed the relationship.

As for when Foxx or Holmes will comment on their relationship, fans shouldn’t expect anything soon.
“They still plan to keep their relationship private. This is what has worked for them and what they are comfortable with. They aren’t a couple who is going to stroll down the street holding hands,” a source told E! News earlier this year. “They just want to stay off the radar and keep it to themselves. They have a routine that works well.”
