There has been much speculation why the pair have gone to such lengths to hide their relationship, which they have denied many times in the media.

One reason cited has been Foxx worked with Holmes' ex-husband Tom Cruise in the 2004 movie Collateral and the men were thought to be friendly.

Holmes has a 11-year-old daughter Suri from her six year marriage to Cruise, while Foxx has two children, Corinne Bishop, 23, and Annalise, eight, from previous relationships.
