And the hits just keep on coming. We’ve seen a lot of surprising celebrity breakups this year, like Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse (maybe? probably?) and Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk, and now, another seemingly strong couple has bitten the dust. PEOPLE confirmed that Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx have reportedly split after six years together, and damn, I didn’t think I cared about them that much as a couple but I am pretty saddened by this news.
Me, after yet another celebrity couple I was barely following calls it quits:
A “music entertainment source” told PEOPLE, “Jamie and Katie split over a month ago. I need to know who this mysterious music entertainment source was. Was it T-Pain? Please tell me it was T-Pain.
Though neither Katie nor Jamie’s reps have commented, this seems legit and we can probably expect some canned statement about how much “mutual love and respect they have for each other” and how they “remain committed to their friendship” and how they “will always care for one another deeply”. I should be a celebrity publicist at this point, I’ve read so many of these breakup statements.
This news is sad, but not super surprising given that Jamie Foxx was spotted holding hands with Sela Vave on Friday night. She is 21 years old, and a singer/songwriter and model. A source initially told PEOPLE that Have is “just a girl he’s helping out, a young singer.” Yep, I’m sure he was helping her out, all right! Out of her pants.
Thank you, I’ll be here all week.
Foxx and Holmes were always very private about their relationship, posing for the first time together this year (this year!!) at the Met Gala. In a world of constant Instagram PDA, I very much respected their choice to keep all their minute goings-on out of the public eye.
I can’t say I’m surprised about a man dumping his partner of six years for a much-younger model, but I sure am disappointed. Oh well, at the very least this just gives me more writing material for my forthcoming
diary entry collection of personal essays, entitled: All Men Are Trash.
