LOOK: Jamie Foxx & Katie Holmes Finally Confirm Their Relationship

It took 5 years, but they're holding hands in public

September 6, 2017

It has been one of Hollywood's "worst kept secrets" for years, but it is no longer a "secret." Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx finally confirmed their relationship, which is believed to have gone on for years.

Why are photos just leaking showing Fox, 49, and Homles, 38, holding hands on a beach?

It all dates back to a clause in Holmes' 2012 divorce from Tom Cruise. The divorce stipualted that the former Dawson's Creek star was not to publicly date anyone for five years.

Well, if you do the math it has been five years, so Holmes and Foxx seem to have left their guard down. Photos surfaced of the pair holding hands walking down a Malibu beach on Monday (Labor Day). 

The pair were rumored to be together dating as far back as August 2013, but have always denied reports they were an item.
