They’ve kept their T ru­moured ro­mance out of the spot­light for al­most four years, but last week Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx fi­nally con­firmed their cou­ple sta­tus when they stepped out hand in hand on a beach in Mal­ibu.

Katie, 38, and Jamie, 49, were first linked in 2013, but have rarely been spot­ted to­gether in pub­lic amid claims they kept their love un­der wraps due to a clause in Katie’s 2012 di­vorce set­tle­ment from ac­tor Tom Cruise, which stated she had to wait five years be­fore pub­licly dat­ing.

TRICKY DI­VORCE

Tom and Katie – par­ents to Suri, 11 – first got to­gether in 2005, and were en­gaged seven weeks later. They di­vorced in 2012, af­ter six years of mar­riage, amid re­ports Katie had grown in­creas­ingly con­cerned about Tom’s de­vo­tion to the con­tro­ver­sial re­li­gion Scien­tol­ogy. The ac­tress was awarded cus­tody of Suri in an out-of-court set­tle­ment.

In 2013, Katie and ac­tor and singer Jamie – who starred with Tom, 55, in 2004 film Col­lat­eral – ap­peared flirty and friendly at a New York char­ity do, spark­ing ru­mours of a ro­mance and, in 2015, they were snapped hold­ing hands in a record­ing stu­dio. Tom hasn’t pub­licly dated any­one since the split and has only been ru­moured to be see­ing a hand­ful of women.

SECRECY PACT

How­ever Katie had al­ways re­mained tight-lipped about the ro­mance, while Jamie in­sisted on sev­eral oc­ca­sions they were “just friends.” He even dis­missed the re­ports as “fake news.”

Over the next few years, Katie put in ap­pear­ances at Jamie’s par­ties and gigs. She’s even ru­moured to have worn wigs and hats to go un­no­ticed when she spent time with him.

But tellingly, in 2016, one of Jamie’s friends, ac­tress Clau­dia Jordan, seemed to con­firm the re­la­tion­ship in an in­ter­view, say­ing: “He is very happy with her. I like that he seems very happy.” How­ever, Clau­dia then re­tracted her words and bizarrely claimed she’d never been told they were dat­ing.

Last week, Katie posted a cute pic­ture of her­self and Suri at a restau­rant – some­thing she rarely does. And now spec­u­la­tion is mount­ing whether Katie and Jamie may get mar­ried soon.
