Jamie Foxx walked out of a live ESPN interview after he was asked questions about his relationship with Katie Holmes. There is video footage of the actor just walking away and leaving the interviewer confused. It is hilarious!
The Sleepless star was preparing to get his basketball on in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, when he stopped to do an interview with ESPN. Michael Smith of SportsCenter was conducting the interview, which ended on a very abrupt note.
Everyone knows in media knows Jamie Foxx doesn't talk about Katie Holmes normally his PR person preps everyone, guess they didn't get the message at ESPN lol https://t.co/sTo90lbuu1— Robert Littal (@BSO) February 16, 2018
Things were going fine until Smith did a big no-no when it comes to interviewing the actor. He asked Foxx about photos that had surfaced of him and his rumored girlfriend Katie Holmes. The pictures were of the two lovebirds playing basketball together on Valentine’s Day.
“I know you’ve prepared and I saw pictures. Did you and Katie Holmes play basketball for Valentine’s Day? Like some real Love & Basketball?” asked Smith.
Foxx didn’t even attempt to ignore, answer or refuse the question. He simply got up, took his headset off and walked away from the interview. The actor was seen smiling as an assistant helped him take off the microphone clip and he headed to the basketball court.

Smith was so confused by what was going on and began asking questions.
“Uh oh, did we lose him? Oh, he ready to go, he ready to hoop,” remarked Smith after he noticed the Oscar winner playing on the court.
Although he was not answering questions about his personal life, Foxx was all about answering questions regarding the celebrity basketball game.
“I’m ready-made, all you gotta do is add water. They’re ready to pour some water on me and I’m ready to rock!” he told another ESPN reporter while he was practicing on the court.
Jamie Foxx was not playing when reporter Michael Smith asked him about Holmes. He walked out of the interview, which is not surprising considering how private these two are when it comes to their romance. Although they have made a few rare public appearances together, neither will speak about the other one an interview. They never even confirmed they are dating but the under the radar couple has reportedly been together for years.
