The Jamie Foxx, Katie Holmes relationship has been under wraps for quite some time now and the actress has remained tight-lipped about her personal life ever since she divorced from the “Mission Impossible” actor Tom Cruise. However, the reason behind it was never clear. A source claimed that as per the terms of divorce, Holmes cannot publicly date someone till 2017.
The romance between Holmes, 37, and Foxx, 48, allegedly started in 2013 and they have been keeping the rumours at bay by not appearing together in public. According to a report by the Radar Online, the ‘Batman Begins’ star’s divorce agreement stated that she cannot do anything that would embarrass Cruise and that included dating publicly. She was allowed to date, but had to keep it a secret affair for five years since their divorce.
The agreement also barred Holmes’ boyfriends from going near to the former couple’s daughter Suri.
“Katie signed a clause in her quickie divorce settlement that 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,” Radar Online quoted a source as saying. “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.”
The source added, “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 Katie Holmes fails to abide by the terms of the agreement, she will lose the money that came with the divorce and the actress has followed the clauses quite diligently for so long. When asked about her love life during an interview a few months ago, she said, “That’s not something I want to answer!”
Mail Online reported that Holmes and Foxx were first spotted at a benefit in The Hamptons in 2013 and a few months later there were rumours that the two are dating.
