Music mogul Clive Davis poked fun at Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx‘s coy attempts to hide their relationship at his starry Pre-Grammy Awards Gala.
Foxx and Holmes have been dating for years, but have rarely appeared in public together, nor have they ever confirmed their relationship – but on Saturday night they finally cozied up in public.
Holmes, 39, arrived in a red gown with her hair in a sleek bob, with producer and Tribeca Production’s honcho Jane Rosenthal at Saturday night’s bash at the Sheraton in Manhattan,
Foxx rolled in later, and sat at the next table to Holmes, exchanging smiles and jokes. But Katie not-so-subtly left the room as Davis – who traditionally announces his big name guests at the event – was about to give a shout out to them both.
But when she returned, Davis called her out, saying, “This lady left the room right when I was going to introduce her, she was sitting at that table right with Jamie Foxx and everyone else.”
“If you’re going to sit together what better night than tonight,” Davis added to laughs from the audience, which included Jay Z, Beyoncé, Pink, John Legend and Chrissy Tiegen, Cardi B, Sting, DJ Khaled and a host of top music execs.
A camera showed Foxx, 50, still sitting at the next table, cracking up into laughter while Holmes gave an embarrassed smile.
But later in the night, Foxx finally moved into the seat next to Holmes, where he was seen whispering in her ear. Then when Logic and Khaled performed, they got up onto their feet and danced with other partygoers.
The pair was first linked in 2013, but have kept their relationship low-key. They have been spotted visiting each other in LA, in Paris together last spring, and there were photographed strolling on a Malibu beach in September.
