Jamie Foxx and Katie Holms are tired of keeping their romance a secret — that is, according to Us Weekly. Sources close to the pair tell the mag that after four years, the duo is ready to “go public” and stop hiding.

On Sunday, April 2, the day before the Oscar-winning entertainer flew to Budapest to film Robin Hood, he and the actress, who was previously married to Tom Cruise from 2006 to 2012, dined out in the open at a NYC restaurant.

Says the source, Holmes, 38, “used to be super worried about public attention,” but now “is tired of playing the hiding game.”

Apparently, the couple used to go to great lengths to dodge paparazzi with elaborately planned meetings. Among them: a trip to Miami for this past New Years Eve, and a private Mexico getaway for Holmes’ birthday in December.

“To make it impossible to get photo evidence that they are together, they traveled in cars with tinted windows and took secret back elevators,” shares a second insider. “They had it down to a science.”

Sounds exhausting! Now, per a close of friend of the couple, they will be in public a lot more. “They’re going to go out to dinner more and are talking about a trip to Europe.”




Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
