All this time, we thought they were just being discreet.
According to Radar, the main reason Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx have kept their purported relationship under wraps is that she's technically not allowed to date (publicly, anyway) until 2017. A source claims that as part of her divorce from Tom Cruise, she agreed to a clause prohibiting her from having a relationship out in the open for five whole years.
According to the source, the clause "prevents her from embarrassing Tom in various ways, like talking about him or Scientology, or publicly dating another man for five years after the divorce." The source clarified:
She’s allowed to date, but she cannot do so in a public fashion, and she’s not supposed to let any boyfriend near their daughter, Suri. Katie wanted out of the marriage so badly, she agreed to the terms—and got $4.8 million in child support, plus another $5 million for herself." If she breaks the rules, she has to give back the money.
Radar claims that Holmes and Foxx have been an item since 2013. That rumor was seemingly confirmed by Real Housewives of Atlanta star and Foxx friend Claudia Jordan when she claimed that the couple was "really happy," a statement she later took back, saying she "misspoke." Uh-huh.
Foxx and Holmes were seen together in August at a Barbra Streisand concert, but due to security, no photos were taken, so that doesn't really count as public. The source said, "At this point, Tom doesn’t care much what Katie does. But he wouldn’t mind getting his $5 million back!"
