Katie Holmes is doing just fine following her split from Jamie Foxx, but the tabloids have published a number of false stories claiming otherwise. Gossip Cop has debunked several phony articles about the actress’s supposed difficulties coping with the breakup. Here are just five wrong rumors on the topic that we’ve recently corrected.
In late August, Gossip Cop busted OK! for falsely claiming Holmes would be speaking out against Foxx in an interview about their split. The magazine said she planned to “openly bash” the actor and reveal that their relationship ended because he “betrayed her with dozens of women over the years.” At no point in the story was it mentioned when, where or how this interview would go down. The entire premise was based on the word of an anonymous “source,” but Holmes’ spokesperson assured us it was fabricated.
Just one day after, Gossip Cop called out Woman’s Day for making up a story about Holmes leaning on ex-fiance Chris Klein amid her split from Foxx. The outlet maintained the actress was seeking comfort in Klein, who she was engaged to in 2005 before calling it off. However, it doesn’t seem there’s been much interaction between Holmes and Klein since their 2005 split. There was also no indication of her “leaning” on Klein following her 2012 divorce from Tom Cruise, so why turn to him after her her split from Foxx? In addition to there being very little evidence to back up the premise, Holmes’ rep also confirmed it was fabricated.
Earlier this month, Gossip Cop debunked an NW cover story about a “heartbroken” Holmes starving herself following her split from Foxx. The tabloid alleged the actress’s health and self-esteem were suffering following her breakup, as she was supposedly refusing to eat. Holmes’ rep, who’s qualified to speak on her behalf, assured us she was perfectly “happy.” That became even more evident in the days that followed when the actress was seen out and about during New York Fashion Week. Holmes wasn’t having any sort of meltdown in the wake of her relationship ending.
Gossip Cop later busted Life & Style for falsely claiming Holmes got a “revenge makeover” following her breakup in a “desperate effort to boost her sagging self-esteem.” The report emerged after the actress was photographed looking glammed up during Fashion Week. Holmes’ spokesperson called the story “crazy,” further noting that the actress “has always been fashionable.” Holmes even had her own clothing line at one point, and has served on multiple campaigns for various fashion brands. The actress didn’t get a “revenge makeover.” She simply dressed up for a major fashion event.
And finally, Gossip Cop called out NW earlier this week for wrongly alleging Holmes underwent $75,000 in plastic surgery to get over her split from Foxx. Without any evidence to back up its article, the tabloid insisted the actress had gotten a facelift, nose job, implants, lip fillers and Botox, in addition to other procedures. However, Holmes is frequently photographed in public and she’s attended a number of events as of late. It’s impossible she’d be able to recover in time, and there’s been no hint of surgeries in any recent photos. The report was total nonsense, as a rep for the actress confirmed.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
