Guess it’s Jamie Foxx’s policy not to talk about his longtime lady friend.

And SportsCenter’s Michael Smith found out the hard way. Smith was interviewing Foxx before the actor played in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game on Friday night, and asked him about Katie Holmes, whom Foxx has been allegedly dating on the low for more than a few years.


Referencing a photo that surfaced of the couple with Foxx holding a basketball on Valentine’s Day, Smith asked Foxx about his swirly love in a tongue-in-cheek way.

“And I know you’ve prepared because I saw pictures,” said Smith. “Did you and Katie Holmes play basketball for Valentine’s Day? Like some real Love & Basketball?”


Foxx simply smiled, took off his headset and walked off. Guess Katie is off-limits, breh.

That’ll learn ’em.
