When you see this title, you might be thinking it is about all Foxx’s juicy relationships and love stores. Oh yes, it is definitely about his love stories but not all are romantic. You’ll be getting to know about his baby mamas, if he was ever married and details about his lovely daughters. Firstly, how did he go from being Eric Marlon Bishop to Jamie Foxx? Find out as you read on…
Date of Birth: December 13, 1967
Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius
The Django Unchained star started out playing the church’s piano as he grew up in a strict Baptist home. He also noticed that he was gifted at telling jokes so it was something Foxx did often way back in third grade. In 1989, Jamie went out with his then girlfriend and she dared him to tell jokes at an open mic night. It was there he found out that females were usually called up first to perform so Eric Marlon decided to use some ambiguous name big enough to disallow biases. That was how he came up with Jamie and he went on to pick the surname Foxx as a tribute to Redd Foxx, a black comedian.
From starring in comedy-drama sitcoms, Jamie progressed into film and to being nominated for his amazing talent. It did not take a million years before Foxx was awarded is first award in recognition of his outstanding delivery in films. The entertainment industry’s triple threat has definitely had his fair share of love and parental bliss.
Connie Kline (ex-girlfriend)
Duration of relationship: briefly in the early ’90s
It is pretty obvious that Corinne got some of her good looks from her movie star dad but was there any maternal contribution to this pretty looking model? Be the judge of that! Connie is an air force veteran that was Foxx’s baby mama (she is Corinne’s mother) in the early 1990s. Jamie “Bishop” is known to be a pro at keeping the identity of his daughters’ mum a secret and this is no exception.
She was even absent when her daughter was crowned Miss Golden Globe! Unbelievable but it goes to show how much Connie treasures her privacy. The reason why no one has ever heard from Foxx’s first baby mama is simply because (in her own words) “I love my Privacy”.
Kristin Grannis (ex-girlfriend)
Year of Birth: 1977
Kristin is the mother of Annalise, Jamie’s youngest daughter. She used to work in PR but now has a full financial support from Foxx.
Katie Holmes (girlfriend)
Duration of Relationship: since October 2013 – till date
Date of Birth: December 18, 1978
Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius
Since 2013, Foxx has been on and off with Katie. Another motto he has is that – happy couples are doomed when they say “I do”. This was the reason why Holmes never heard the jingling of their wedding bells. The wedding between co-actors Holmes and Foxx was rumored and both of them never came out clean to the public till September 2017; they were caught as a couple together holding hands at the beach in Malibu. This is the usual private Foxx’s attitude but for Katie, it was her first relationship after the divorce from husband Tom Cruise.
Corinne Bishop (daughter, born to Jamie Foxx and Connie Kline)
Year of Birth: 1994
Corinne had always been a frequent face at the red carpet thanks to her “single” dad; she was always his date. At that time while Bishop was a teen, she did not look this close to being perfect; in fact, awkward was the best word to describe her. So much has changed now and Corinne has evolved into a sexy female figure. The first Foxx daughter works with L. A. Models On November 18, 2015, Foxx’s pride was named Miss Golden Globes 2016. The award is usually given to the son or daughter of a film or television industry icon.
Jamie and his daughter Corinne share a super close bond and are friends at their core. She verbally expressed once in a speech how glad she was to now be able to share the stage with the Collateral actor. Corinne refers to the public eye as the stage where her dad has been recognized for some of his greatest accomplishments.
Annalise Bishop (daughter with Kristin Grannis)
Year of Birth: 2009
As much as he is a talker, Foxx has remained notoriously tight-lipped about his personal life. Bishop’s motto is “whoever you date, don’t let people know” and he has religiously practiced this to the letter. Annalise’s mother name was confirmed only in October 2017.
Annalise is loud mouthed like her dad but in a cool way because when a kid is a talker, everyone finds it intriguing. We however wonder where she’s gotten a flashy and attention-seeking persona from. Little Annalise takes major pride in the status of her dad as a successful public face.
