In the absolute best story of middle-aged people finding love after their first marriages implode, Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx will make your heart melt. Claudia Jordan, who used to be on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, accidentally made the announcement in some rando interview yesterday. The first paparazzi photos of them were taken in 2013 when they were on vacation in the Hamptons, and they were both wearing rings on their wedding fingers this year. So basically, this is official as it’s going to get until Katie gets pregnant or they buy a house together.
Seriously, this story should be a rom-com. Katie is a 37-year-old divorcée with a 10-year-old daughter and a crazy ex-husband. Jamie Foxx is a 48-year-old Oscar and Grammy winner with a 21-year-old and a 7-year-old daughter. Plus, both of their careers could use the boost from a new movie.
I’m imagining Tom Cruise reacted to this news by jumping on a couch in a Scientology church.
Update, 6/22 9:00am: Apparently Claudia Jordan told Entertainment Tonight that she basically never said that and they’re not dating.
In other words, somebody from the Foxx/Holmes camp was piiiiiissed word got out. Ugh, can’t you guys just fucking admit you’re dating already? We love you as a couple already.
