Actress Katie Holmes’s dating life has been under a microscope since she split from Tom Cruise back in 2012, but the “Dawson’s Creek” star has still managed to keep almost all her secret relationships out of the public eye.
In 2013, rumors started to swirl that Holmes, 38, was dating fellow Hollywood star, Jamie Foxx, 49, shortly after her divorce from Cruise, according to the Daily Mail.
But the elusive couple always managed to keep their alleged romance out of the limelight — and for good reason.
According to RadarOnline, Holmes had “agreed not to publicly date anyone” for at least five years as part of her 2012 divorce agreement. Their source said:
“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.”
But it now appears that the five-year time limit is up.
On Labor Day, Holmes was spotted publicly holding hands with Foxx for the first time ever, according to TMZ.

The two looked happy as they laughed and walked along a nearly empty beach in Malibu on Monday. Holmes and Foxx wore fedoras and sunglasses to hide their identities, but seemed carefree as they enjoyed the outdoors.
They were also later spotted cozying up together on an outdoor patio.
Holmes and Foxx have publicly denied their involvement for years. According to The Daily Mail, Foxx told the press that rumors about them were just “fake news.”

The actress and mother even allegedly used to wear different wigs and disguises in order to meet up with her man. But now the duo seem more carefree than ever.
There’s no word how little Suri feels about Katie’s man, but Foxx himself has a daughter around her age, too. Chances are he’ll be a great father figure for the 11-year-old.
