Whoa, we may have finally figured out why Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx have kept their rumored romance hush-hush for so long. Apparently, Katie’s divorce agreement with Tom Cruise includes the mandate that she can’t date publicly for five years after the divorce! Get the scoop here!
Katie Holmes‘, 37, divorce from Tom Cruise, 54, was messy — to say the least. And the more and more details that pour out about the two’s split, the crazier everything seems. Now, we’ve discovered the latest piece of the puzzle, and it’s absolutely cringe-worthy. Apparently, a stipulation that Katie couldn’t date publicly for five years was part of their divorce agreement! If you’re grossed out, you’re not alone. Now we totally get why the actress has tried to keep her rumored romance with Jamie Foxx, 48, under wraps for so long.
“Katie signed a clause in her quickie divorce settlement that prevents her from embarrassing Tom in various ways, like talking about him or Scientology, or publicly dating another man for five years after the divorce,” a source told Radar Online. “She’s allowed to date, but she cannot do so in a public fashion, and she’s not supposed to let any boyfriend near their daughter, Suri [Cruise].”
Apparently Katie wanted things over with so much she agreed to that clause to get the divorce done ASAP. “Katie wanted out of the marriage so badly, she agreed to the terms – and got $4.8 million in child support, plus another $5 million for herself,” the insider said of Katie’s split from Tom back in June 2012.
So, Katie must have wanted to be with Jamie pretty badly if they were willing to take the risk of being outed as a couple. The pair have been shooting down the romantic rumors for years, which is hard to do, seeing as they look absolutely adorable every time they are spotted together. But now we understand why. Let’s hope time passes quickly, as Katie has another year to go before her alleged five year mandate is up. You can do it guys!
