Couldn’t be more of a nope. Following reports that Jamie Foxx and broke up with his love of six years, Katie Holmes, he is strongly denying rumors that he has moved on with a young singer.
“When I met Ed Sheeran, I didn’t know him from Adam. He slept on my couch for six weeks," Foxx said in an Instagram live video that singer and model Vave recorded and shared on her own Instagram account.
"He ended up going on to do great things. Nick Cannon was 13 years old, he would sleep in my old house. … Before Ne-Yo was Ne-Yo, he would come to the crib. Everybody comes to my crib, no matter who you are. … There is a young lady by the name of Sela Vave. I did the same thing with her."
The 51-year-old praised her talents, then slammed media reports that they were dating following shots of them leaving a club together, her hand in his.
“I’m escorting her to my car, to put her in the car – my artist, who hangs out with my kids, who's as young as my daughter," he said, referencing daughter Corinne Foxx, 25. Vave’s age is reportedly 19. Foxx also has a 10-year-old daughter, Annalise Bishop.
“I spoke to that girl’s mom and she put her trust in me, so we want to make sure she has the opportunity to show you the talent we saw," he said. "Enough of the unnecessary hate for the woman, just because the guys are coming here and they’re working hard, but when a girl does it, all of a sudden she has an ulterior motive.”
He continued: "I know you guys are reading between the lines, but I embrace all the artists who come here. What happened in the press with our girl Sela – that's our family. We don't ever cross the lines like that personally. That’s our artist, that's our family, that's our love. She’s been brought into the family, she works hard, she’s a beautiful singer. I can't wait for you to hear her.”
