'It's Not True' Jamie Foxx Denies Dating BFF Tom Cruise's Ex Katie Holmes

Jamie Foxx has shot down recent claims he's dating Tom Cruise's ex-wife Katie Holmes claiming they're "one hundred percent not true".

The couple were linked after they were reportedly spotted dancing close together at an industry event. But insisting there was nothing going on between them, Foxx said on Entertainment Tonight the rumours were "hilarious".

"[The rumours] are one hundred percent not true," he told host Nancy O'Dell. "In fact, it's quite hilarious because we simply danced at a charity event along with a lot of other people."

Clearly feeling a little awkward, the 45 year-old went on to reiterate how close he is to Katie's former husband, superstar Cruise, who the actor co-starred in 2004's Collateral in.

Rumours of a romance were rife after In Touch magazine claimed a source told them: “Katie and Jamie have been dating for a while, they’re very ‘Mission: Impossible’ about their romance.”

They went on to claim the couple had met up while Jamie filmed forthcoming movie Annie in the Big Apple, where Holmes currently lives with daughter Suri. Another insider said: “A hotel employee confirmed that Katie had stayed at the hotel with Jamie and that she was taking his car. So the driver drove her home to her Chelsea apartment.”

The Dawsons Creek star has been single since splitting from Cruise in 2012 after six years of marriage. She was previously linked to Mania Days co-star Luke Kirby though that was also denied.
