A Real Housewives of Atlanta star confirms Katie Holmes’ romance with Jamie Foxx — then takes it back
Ever seen anyone try to stuff a cat back into the bag? In the world’s least believable retraction, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Claudia Jordan went from confirming a romance between her pal Jamie Foxx, 48, and his longrumored girlfriend and Scientology refugee Katie Holmes, 37, to a level of denial that would make Richard Nixon look like Abe Lincoln. (Please Google today’s history lesson.) When asked about Jamie and Katie’s relationship on June 21, Claudia, 43, replied, “He is very happy with her. I like that he seems very happy.” The internet went crazy — finally, confirmation! — but faster than you can say “I am not a crook” (Google it, again), Claudia quickly backpedaled, saying she “misspoke” about the Oscar winner’s romance with Tom Cruise’s ex. “I have no knowledge of Jamie with Katie at all,” insisted the reality star the next day. “I’ve never seen them together. He’s never told me he’s dating her.” Sorry, Claudia, too late. This romance has been Hollywood’s worst kept secret since In Touch first reported it back in 2013 — and Jamie and Katie were even photographed holding hands at a recording studio last year! “I guess people are really wanting someone to confirm this,” insists Claudia. Yes, they do, Claudia. And you did!
