The actor finally sets the record straight on the photo that sparked a thousand dating rumours…
Jamie Foxx has denied reports that he’s dating actress Katie Holmes after the pair were spotted getting cosy at the Night of Legends benefit in the Hamptons in August.
The 45-year-old actor told Entertainment Tonight: ‘(The rumours) are 100 per cent not true.’
‘In fact it's quite hilarious because we simply danced at a charity event along with a lot of other people.’
Jamie and Katie, who divorced husband Tom Cruise in June 2012, first sparked rumours of a possible romance when they were photographed together at the 4th Annual Apollo in the Hamptons benefit in New York at the end of August.
An eye-witness said that Katie, 34, hit the dancefloor with Jamie when legendary rockers Lenny Kravitz and Bon Jovi took to the stage to perform American Woman, and was later seen sipping from Jamie's cocktail.
As more photos surfaced of the flirty pair dancing closely to the sound of Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines and Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams’ Get Lucky, reports of a secret relationship unsurprisingly hit the headlines.
But now that Jamie’s set the record straight, it looks like mum-of-one Katie is officially single and ready to mingle.
And with new speculation that the beautiful brunette may have her eye on actor George Clooney after attending his Gravity premiere in New York last week and reportedly enjoying a string of dinner dates with the handsome silver fox, there might be love in the air for Katie after all.
Wouldn’t they make a handsome pair?
