If you’ve seen Jamie Foxx’s daughters, you could assume that he has a certain complexion preference although you can’t say you’ve ever seen him with a public girlfriend. Despite crushes on Oprah and Serena Williams, though they were maybe just for publicity purposes, Jamie’s personal life has been kept under wraps. Well, except for the pesky rumors that he and actress – and Tom Cruise ex – Katie Holmes were dating and or married.
Despite occasional sightings (once being cozy in a recording studio, once getting on a private jet together in Paris) Jamie has publicly denied dating Holmes multiple times. But apparently the two have gotten to a point in their relationship that they feel comfortable going public, as Holmes and Jamie were recently seen walking hand in hand on a Malibu beach.
The stars were spotted walking hand in hand along the sand barefoot in Malibu on Monday, relaunching years-long buzz about a romance. Although they’ve never officially confirmed a relationship, multiple sources have told PEOPLE the ultra-private pair have been spending time together for years.

In 2015, a source told PEOPLE they weren’t getting serious. “This is not some intense romance,” the source said. “Jamie and Katie are friends and have been for a long time. They are two adults who are attractive and single, and so apparently conclusions will be drawn. But contrary to those conclusions, they’re not about to run off and make some serious commitment.”
Added a Foxx source at the time: “[They] see each other and go out together, but Jamie would tell you he is not involved with anyone seriously. [He]’s a workaholic and couldn’t be happier in his life as it is.”
Foxx, 49, who has never been married, has two daughters – one grown and one pre-teen. Holmes, 38, who divorced Tom Cruise in 2012, has a daughter, Suri with him.
