Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise broke up a long time ago, but it’s taken Katie quite a while to move on. Earlier this year, it seemed like she was getting pretty serious with Jamie Foxx, but sources are now hinting at her hooking up with Robin Thicke.
Oh, Katie Holmes dating Robin Thicke? Really? Jamie Fox is infinitly better than Robin Thicke. I mean, I know Katie was a robo bride for a really long time, and it’s probably just a relief to be able to make choices on her own for once. But seriously, she can do better than the dude who cheated on his wife and wrote sleazy songs about it.
By now, we all know about Robin’s never-ending saga with his ex-wife, Paula Patton. Robin cheated on her, was caught with his hand [literally] up another girl’s skirt, and Paula divorced his ass. Robin tried desperately to win her back, but clearly, Paula has a modicum of self respect and refused to take him seriously.
But now, Robin seems to be setting his sights on Katie – or is it the other way around? Apparently, Robin and Katie hit it off while their significant others, Tom and Paula, were filming Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol in 2010.
They supposedly kept in touch, and sources tell MSN, “Katie dropped [Thicke] an email recently to see how he was, knowing he was going through divorce hell. He was so happy to hear from her. They’ve arranged a date… Everyone’s encouraging this as they have so much in common and if anyone can get him over Paula, it’s Katie.”
Uh… I don’t even know where to begin. See, I can’t see how Katie would want to involve herself dating a dude who’s a magnet for relationship drama, especially since she’s tried so hard to keep herself out of the media spotlight recently. Or is this part of her acting comeback – dating a douche who will bring her tabloid notoriety?
Also, I don’t know if I believe that Tom would have let Katie and Robin ‘hit it off’ during filming for Mission Impossible. I’m sure Katie and Robin were cordial to each other, but knowing how much of a control freak our dear Tommy is, you think he would have been cool with Katie and Robin flirting and exchanging email information? Yeah, not a chance.
