How the hell did Katie Holmes & Jamie Foxx keep their romance under wraps: An investigation

At last, the pair have made it official!

By Zoe Burrell
Hollywood's worst kept secret is FINALLY out in the open.
The pair were snapped holding hands during a romantic stroll along California's Malibu beach over the US Labour Day Holiday weekend.
Rumours about the couple began as far back as August 2013 but the pair reportedly have always kept the romance under wraps, apparently due to a clause in Katie's 2012 divorce from Tom Cruise, which forbid her from going public with a boyfriend for five years.
That's like being in lock-down between the end of filming for The Bachelor Australia, until the finale airs - BUT FOR FIVE YEARS. Sorry Matty J and your Chosen One, you've got nothing on Jamie and Katie.
But with the restrictions running out around July-August, the lovers are know happy for the world to know about their romance.
