Saying she had ‘never’ hooked up with Foxx, she added: ‘He is very happy with her [Katie]. I like that he seems very happy.’
As recent as May of last year, the 37-year-old actress vehemently denied romancing the 48-year-old Oscar winner to Gossip Cop.
‘These stories are untrue and this gossip needs stop,’ her rep told the site at the time.
‘Katie is not dating anyone. She’s not gushing about anyone…She was on phone with her daughter [Suri] when she supposedly was overheard saying “I love you.”‘
Sparkig rumours: The pair were spotted dancing together at a charity event in 2013; despite avoiding being seen together since that night, romance rumours have persisted
Jamie – who worked closely with Katie’s ex-husband Tom Cruise on the 2004 film Collateral – has also previously publicly denied that he is dating the actress.
But this did little to quash rumours, with some publications even suggesting that the pair may be planning to wed.
Katie and Jamie were first seen together back in 2013, when their flirty dancing onstage the 4th Annual Apollo In The Hamptons Benefit set tongues wagging.
Holmes and her 10-year-old daughter have since started spending more and more time in California, although they live a bi-coastal lifestyle – with Suri attending school in New York.

On the West coast, Foxx – born Eric Bishop – lives in Rancho Conejo with his daughters – Corinne, 21, and Annalise, 6 – while Katie is in Thousand Oaks, only a 30-minute drive away.
Back in December, the Touched with Fire actress was a guest at Jamie’s surprise birthday party in New York at La Bilboquet restaurant – along with Jennifer Hudson and Alicia Keys.
And soon after, Katie was spotted at The Honor Bar in Beverly Hills with The Annie actor’s youngest daughter Annalise.
Then In January, observers spotted a gold ring on Katie’s engagement finger – sending the rumour mill into overdrive.

At the time, InTouch claimed the actors have had marriage on their mind for a while.
‘They’ve discussed eloping or having a small, quiet wedding in an out-of-the-way place,’ a friend told the publication.’They’re happy.’
But the Batman Begins beauty was said to be worried how about how Cruise would react.
‘She’s terrified,’ said a source. ‘She’s afraid that he’ll be angry that Suri will have a new father figure and come crashing back into her and Suri’s lives.’
