They may never make an official debut, but secretive “couple” Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx sure seemed cozy at music legend Clive Davis’ annual Pre-Grammy Awards Gala. And Davis, for one, wasn’t about to let the pair slip out of the party without being noticed.
Holmes and Foxx — whose rumored relationship now reportedly spans years — took all the precautions one might expect of a covert couple. They arrived separately, with Holmes heading into the soiree ahead of her alleged beau. Then, although they were seated at the same table, Holmes made herself scarce mere moments before Davis gave Foxx a shout-out.
But despite their best-laid plans, Holmes and Foxx couldn’t escape the spotlight… which, in this case, came directly from Davis.
“This lady left the room right when I was going to introduce her, she was sitting at that table right with Jamie Foxx and everyone else,” the music mogul said, coyly adding, “If you’re going to sit together, what better night than tonight?”
Foxx appeared to find the moment comical, laughing it off. Likewise, Holmes must not have been too upset to have been called out — later in the evening, she and Foxx were photographed at the same table, looking oh-so-happy and in love.
Could they be any cuter together?
According to E! News, the adorable duo were first romantically linked back in 2013, when they were spotted dancing at a charity event. Despite denying dating rumors over the years, Holmes and Foxx really piqued public interest in September 2017, when they were photographed holding hands during a twilight beach stroll.
“They are really happy,” an insider told E!. “It’s easy, and they are for sure very much in love.”
