Actor Jamie Foxx Reveals Main Reason He’s Never Been Married

We are seeing more and more that marriage is not for everybody. Celebrities from Oprah to Whoopi Goldberg have long expressed that they are not here for the traditional life of being a married individual. There are also those who find traditional marriages don’t work for them, but are ok with an open marriage. The latest celebrity to share why they haven’t, and probably will never marry, is Jamie Foxx.

The acclaimed, award-winning actor, singer, and comedian has long been seen as an eligible bachelor in the eyes of many women. From his chart-topping albums with the sexy visuals to match and his appeal when he acts, the ladies love Jamie Foxx. But through a string of relationships that birthed two daughters that he loves and cherishes, Jamie Foxx is not trying to commit to anyone in marriage. Heavy on the promotional trail for his latest book Act Like You Got Some Sense, Jamie Foxx shared with E!‘s “Daily Pop” recently why he’s never been married.

Designating the lifestyle of traditional marriages as “cookie-cutter”, Jamie Foxx further offers his explanation. Foxx claims that the “American dream” of having the “2.5 children, wood paneling on the station wagon, and the cottage” is not what he sees for his life. A part of that dream did come to fruition, however, as Foxx is the father of 27-year-old Corinne Marie Bishop (professionally known as Corrine Foxx), and 12-year-old Anelise Bishop. According to Jamie Foxx, he was able to establish a healthy and thriving relationship with his daughters due to not being married.

Jamie Foxx went on to share an account of his eldest daughter inquiring about why he had not married when she was growing up. “‘People are married, and that’s what they have,'” Foxx recalls a younger Corrine telling him. But as they got older, they began to recognize the failures of those same marriages that surrounded them. “Unfortunately, we saw the kids get fractures from their families,” the Soul actor continued. “Us, we actually came together more. So, I don’t know what that is. I just know that it is different but it’s a whole lot of love.” 

While many in the media and the public may stress the actor with their inquiries as to why he hasn’t made someone Mrs. Bishop, Jamie Foxx stated that his children do not pressure him. “I don’t think we’ve had conversations about it,” Foxx said. “They just love their daddy and I just keep moving.”

Although Foxx has never been married, he’s definitely been romantically linked to a few high-profile women. His eldest daughter, Corinne, was born in 1994 to his then-girlfriend, Connie Kline. Kline is an American Air Force veteran. His second daughter, Anelise, was born in 2009 to then-girlfriend Kristin Grannis.

For the most part, Jamie Foxx has attempted to keep his relationships and private life just that, private. But in 2015, it was reported that he had been dating actress Katie Holmes. The relationship had been kept under wraps for almost two years by the couple, but paparazzi photos showed the two holding hands at times.

Sources for the couple tried to downplay their relationship, saying that it was “not some intense relationship.” Rather they were just two “attractive” and “single” adults who had been friends for a very long time. “So apparently conclusions will be drawn,” a source told PEOPLE. “But contrary to those conclusions, they’re not about to run off and make some serious commitment.” However, after six years of romance, the couple decided to call it quits.

That is not the only actress that Jamie Foxx has been linked to. In the past, he’s also been rumored to have dated Stacey Dash. The two appeared on a few red carpets together, but nothing seemed to come of it. Foxx has also been linked to others such as Olivia Nunn, Vivica A. Fox, Fantasia Barrino, and even Meagan Good. But even though he’s found love in various places, that’s not enough to convince him that he’s built for marriage. However, he did insist on one thing for certain. “I’m a very loving person when it comes to connecting with someone and being there,” he said to Oprah in 2012.
