10 hot sto­ries,

in­clud­ing Ti­mothy Af­fleck: ‘Hol­ly­wood has taken a toll on my sons’, Katie’s heart­break over Jamie’s cheat­ing ru­mours, and high street – how much? And fi­nally

In Septem­ber, Katie Holmes fi­nally went pub­lic with Jamie Foxx – her ru­moured boyfriend of five years – and Hol­ly­wood-watch­ers did a col­lec­tive air punch. Grazia had pre­vi­ously re­ported on per­sis­tent spec­u­la­tion that Katie’s 2012 di­vorce from Tom Cruise (mas­ter­minded by her lawyer fa­ther) in­cluded the un­usual caveat that she couldn’t date any­one pub­licly for five years. So, when she and Jamie were pic­tured hand in hand on a Mal­ibu beach just two months af­ter the ru­moured clause ex­pired, it seemed to be con­fir­ma­tion that Katie was fi­nally free of ‘Cruise con­trol’.

Last week, Katie and Jamie made things red car­pet of­fi­cial at a pre- Gram­mys party. But it seems that their happy end­ing hasn’t come with­out its own com­pli­ca­tions. De­spite their smiles, in­sid­ers re­port that, be­hind the scenes, Katie has been forced to ‘lay down the law’ with Jamie over ru­mours that he has cheated.

One well-placed source told Grazia, ‘Jamie has a rep­u­ta­tion as a ladies’ man and Katie has al­ways been well aware of that and the scru­tiny it causes. She knows not to pay at­ten­tion to ev­ery­thing that is said but, re­cently, she’s been grow­ing con­cerned that his pen­chant for par­ty­ing has been get­ting out of con­trol when there are other women around. She’s heard whis­pers from friends in the in­dus­try that his par­ty­ing at­tracts fe­male at­ten­tion and with that in­evitably come ru­mours.’

It’s not the first time such sto­ries have arisen. Last year, a US mag­a­zine re­ported that ‘wom­an­is­ing cad’ Jamie had be­trayed Katie with a Rus­sian mis­tress (His rep dis­missed the claim as com­pletely ‘fab­ri­cated’.) In July,


Intouch re­ported, ‘ When Jamie is out, Katie be­comes an af­ter­thought... he acts like a sin­gle frat boy. His re­la­tion­ship [with Katie] is pas­sion­ate, but he never in­tended to set­tle down.’ Else­where, he’s re­ported to have flirted with Eva Lon­go­ria and Olivia Munn. Jamie has not com­mented on these spe­cific ac­counts but, ac­cord­ing to our source, he has al­ways in­sisted he’s never done any­thing wrong and that he’s com­mit­ted to the re­la­tion­ship with Katie.

The in­sider con­tin­ued, ‘ This has been Katie’s most im­por­tant re­la­tion­ship since her mar­riage to Tom and it’s not been an easy one. Keep­ing things with Jamie se­cret was ex­haust­ing, and now their ro­mance is no longer incog­nito, she wants re­as­sur­ance that what she’s hear­ing is just hearsay. She’s ter­ri­fied of get­ting hurt or, worse, pub­licly hu­mil­i­ated. She feels that af­ter keep­ing their ro­mance se­cret for so long, if it were to crum­ble within a mat­ter of months of go­ing pub­lic she’d be dev­as­tated. She’s laid down the law with Jamie, telling him that while she doesn’t be­lieve ev­ery­thing she reads, the ru­mours up­set her and they can’t have any se­crets that could come back to bite them. Jamie has re­as­sured her that she has noth­ing to worry about and that it’s all talk, but she’s tread­ing care­fully, and doesn’t want to have her heart bro­ken af­ter ev­ery­thing she’s in­vested in this re­la­tion­ship.’

Fur­ther com­pli­cat­ing mat­ters is Katie’s close bond with Jamie’s daugh­ters from pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ships, Corinne, 23, and An­nalise, nine. The source said, ‘Katie has a great re­la­tion­ship with both girls and has been part of An­nalise’s life since she was small. When her re­la­tion­ship with Jamie was se­cret they went for pe­ri­ods with­out see­ing each other to stay un­der the radar, but this is no longer a ca­sual fling and hasn’t been for some time. She needs to feel she can trust Jamie. No­body wants to see her hurt again.’
