Born Eric Marlon Bishop, actor and musician Jamie Foxx has won numerous major awards including an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and a Grammy. Though his work is widely known, he is renowned for keeping his love life private, even though he has been transparent about his views on marriage and commitment.
In 2021, the actor gave an explanation of his views on marriage to Men’s Health, saying, “Weirdly, though, if I’m in a relationship that I dig… I’m good.”
In Act Like You Got Some Sense, Foxx’s memoir from 2021 also mentioned this. “I’ve simply never been persuaded that getting married was a wise decision for me. While some of my friends have wonderful marriages, others don’t. And it never seemed like I needed a marriage to provide a secure and loving environment for my kids.” Foxx has never felt the need to tie the knot, but he did spend six years dating his ex-girlfriend, Katie Holmes. In addition, he is the father of two daughters: Anelise, who was previously married to Kristen Grannis, and Corinne, who was previously married to Connie Kline.
Here’s everything to know about Jamie Foxx’s dating history.
Connie Kline, an Air Force veteran, was Jamie Foxx’s first publicized girlfriend. In the 1990s, Foxx—who was 26 at the time—dated Kline for a brief period. The pair called off their romantic relationship on February 15, 1994, but they never got engaged or married. Instead, they had a child together.
The first prominent partner Foxx had was Leila Arcieri. Between 2005 and 2006, the actress, model, and businesswoman dated Jamie Foxx for a short while. Their romance did not endure long. But as long as they were together, the couple never held back from telling the world. The two were frequently spotted together at movie premieres and other red carpet events. When they were a couple at the 2005 Golden Globes ceremony, they attracted a lot of attention. They also went to see the premieres of I, Robot, Ray, and Collateral together.
Kristin Grannis is a certified family and marriage therapist. Foxx and Grannis dated in 2008; the duration of their romantic relationship is unknown. Anelise, Foxx’s younger daughter, was born on October 3, 2008, and Grannis is her mother. It appears that the actor has stayed in close contact with the mothers of his two daughters. Foxx and Grannis were even pictured together in Los Angeles in August 2023.
Katie Holmes was Jamie Foxx’s long-term partner. Additionally, it’s the actor’s most well-known romance to date. The couple did not acknowledge their relationship for six years, but that changed in May 2019 when they went to the Met Gala. Despite not walking the red carpet together, Foxx and Holmes made their official Met Gala debut together when they were spotted holding hands and getting photographed. Foxx even coordinated Holmes’ purple dress with his shoes. But according to a source, Foxx and Holmes split up soon after the Met Gala.
The couple may have started dating in May 2022, though it’s unclear when they first got together. Foxx was spotted on a yacht in the south of France at that time, along with an unidentified blonde woman. Whether this was Huckstepp or not, is unknown. Foxx and Huckstepp had a special evening at Nobu Malibu in August 2023 with companions at the restaurant. The couple was out on a date at Nobu in Malibu with some friends. They have been spotted together a number of times since then.
