Ever since Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes divorced, both have seemed to lack for romance in their lives. But now Cruise and Holmes, who share a 10-year-old daughter Suri, are sailing on the love boat, with each finding a new romantic relationship. Tom and Katie both seem to be trying to keep their romances under the radar, but Suri’s mom reportedly has a bombshell reason why she isn’t publicizing her love for Jamie Foxx.
When Cruise first went public with his love for Katie, he famously hopped onto Oprah Winfrey’s couch to proclaim his infatuation. Now, Tom’s new girlfriend has made him “jump-on-a-couch happy again,” according to Us Weekly.
The 54-year-old Mission: Impossible star has taken on the mission of wooing a British woman, a source told Us. Cruise’s romance has lasted for “several months,” noted the media outlet, which described it as “his first significant relationship” since he and Holmes split in in 2012.
Summer provided the opportunity for Tom to romance his new British girlfriend, and Cruise took her on a date to Bourton-on-the-Water. From there, it didn’t take long for the actor to become “smitten,” and the insider revealed that the “very normal and pretty” woman has “taken to bunking” with Tom.
During their time together at the rented cottage on the outskirts of London, the couple has taken bike rides. Cruise’s new girlfriend also has spent time at his London pad. The insider also revealed that Tom really wants to have a romance that endures.
“He’s serious about this relationship and wants to make it work.”
And while Cruise has three children (in addition to Suri, 10, Tom and his ex-wife Nicole Kidman are the parents of Bella, 23, and Connor, 21), the actor “wants some companionship,” added the source.
Katie reportedly shares that same goal. Despite reports that Holmes and Jamie Foxx have split, multiple sources told Us the two are still a couple.
“They are for sure still together,” confirmed one of the insiders.
E! News pointed out that Katie and Jamie have “done an amazing job remaining invisible as a unit.”
At one point, Foxx’s friend Claudia Jordan seemed to have decided to confirm the romance rumors.
“He is very happy with her. I like that he seems very happy,” she stated in an interview, referring to Holmes.
But Claudia clarified that statement soon after.
“I have no knowledge of Jamie with Katie at all. I’ve never seen them together. He’s never told me he’s dating her,” she emphasized.
However, E! News learned that Foxx and Holmes are not trying to hide their romance from their friends, only from the outside world. Consequently, the couple has been photographed just twice, once when they appeared on stage at a benefit and once when they were spotted in a PDA moment in a recording studio.
Why hide the romance? Radar Online revealed that Holmes will not go public with her relationship with Foxx because she has a “secret divorce deal” with Cruise.
The 37-year-old actress’ pact with Tom requires her to keep “her steamy romance with Jamie Foxx under wraps,” the media outlet told readers.
“Holmes’ divorce from [Cruise] orders she can’t officially ‘date’ until 2017,” an insider told Radar.
“Katie signed a clause…that prevents her from embarrassing Tom, [including not] publicly dating another man for five years after the divorce.”
Although Holmes is permitted to date, it cannot be public, and Cruise’s ex-wife also is not allowed to permit her boyfriend near Suri, added the source. The terms sound strict, but Katie “wanted out of the marriage so badly, she agreed, getting $4.8 million in child support, plus another $5 million for herself,” revealed the insider.
What would happen if Katie broke those alleged rules established in her divorce from Tom? She would lose that money, added the source.
Consequently, Holmes has sought to hold onto her single status when it comes to how the public perceives her, according to the media outlet.
“That’s not something I want to answer!” Katie responded several months ago when questioned about dating.
Holmes and Foxx came close to exposing their relationship in August at a Barbra Streisand concert, with Katie cheering as Jamie performed and joining him backstage, revealed Radar.
“They figured it wasn’t a violation of the public rule because security prevented photos. They were so discreet,” explained the source.
