Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx were spotted enjoying a very low-key dinner date over the weekend in New York City. The couple, who have been the subject of romance reports for years, were pictured having a quiet meal for two in a restaurant in the East Village. Their secret date has done nothing but fuel rumours further, although Katie, 38, and Jamie, 49, have always vehemently denied that they are a couple.
A fan took a photo of the stars on their night out, and shared it on Instagram, writing: "Look who I spotted on a date night @katieholmes212 @iamjamiefoxx I always heard rumours about them but never seen pictures of them until today."
Katie, who has a ten-year-old daughter Suri with ex-husband Tom Cruise, has been romantically linked to Jamie for years. Speculation first started in 2013 when the pair were spotted partying together in the Hamptons. The Dawson's Creek alum was photographed sipping cocktails and dancing, with Jamie never far from her side. A source told In Touch: "Katie and and Jamie have been dating for a while. They're very Mission: Impossible about their romance."
Three years later in 2016, Jamie's friend Claudia Jordan, star of Real Housewives of Atlanta, seemed to let the cat out of the bag. During a podcast interview she said: "[He's] a good friend of mine. [I was] never [romantically involved with him]. He is very happy with [Katie]. I like that he seems very happy." But, after sparking fresh new interest in the story, Claudia later insisted she "misspoke" during the chat and added that she had no knowledge of a relationship between Jamie and Katie.
It's likely that the pair have wanted to keep their reported relationship under wraps. "Whoever you're dating, dont let anybody know," Jamie once told Oprah Winfrey. "I'm very loving… when it comes to being there [for someone]."
Katie, meanwhile, has always said that her priority is her young daughter Suri. The actress often takes to Instagram to share photos of their home life and sweet girlie moments together. Earlier this week, Katie treated her daughter to a trip to the salon, sharing a photo of the pair with hairstylist DJ Quintero.
