Speaking to Entertainment Tonight’s Nancy O’Dell, the Ray actor says the rumors are “hilarious” and completely not true.
“[The rumors] are one hundred percent not true,” he told Nancy. “In fact, it’s quite hilarious because we simply danced at a charity event along with a lot of other people.”
The original rumor suggested that Foxx spent a lot of time with Katie Holmes at her New York City apartment. The rumor started after the couple shared the dance floor over the summer during a charity event.
Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes’ ex-husband Tom Cruise, starred together in 2004’s Collateral.
Foxx admits that he and Holmes are close friends, but insists they are not dating.

In a stab at Tom Cruise the course tried to claim that the couple are “very Mission: Impossible about their romance.”
