Katie Holmes is not scouting a wedding venue in Ireland, despite inaccurate speculation about the actress planning to marry Jamie Foxx. Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight. A rep for Holmes tells us thereâ€™s no ceremony in the works.
Last week, Holmes was photographed visiting Borris House, a historic estate in Ireland that serves as a popular wedding venue. The actress stayed overnight at the establishment with her daughter Suri, which has prompted The Daily Beast to speculate sheâ€™s â€ścontemplating tying the knot with Foxxâ€ť at the location.
According to the site, Holmes â€śwas said to have asked about the houseâ€™s history and its use as a wedding venue.â€ť Of course, showing interest in a historic property isnâ€™t proof of an impending marriage. Meanwhile, the website Irish Central is also sparking marriage rumors, claiming the actress was â€śinquiring about hosting a wedding at the medieval stately home.â€ť
This wedding speculation is based on noting but Holmes visiting an estate thatâ€™s used for weddings. Gossip Cop, however, checked in with a rep for the actress, who tells us on the record that she â€śwas in Ireland for workâ€ť and certainly not scoping out wedding venues. In fact, Holmes and her daughter took in a lot of different sites during their trip overseas.
Prior to staying at Borris House, Holmes was spotted getting a tour of Kilkenny castle and attending the National Design and Craft Gallery. The actress and her daughter were also seen grabbing lunch in Dublin and visiting a pottery store. Itâ€™s likely that Borris House was just another stop on her sightseeing tour. Regardless, Gossip Cop can confirm that Holmes didnâ€™t visit the property to determine if it will make a good wedding venue.
It should be noted, itâ€™s not as if Holmes was caught by paparazzi visiting Borris House. The actress happily posed for a photo at the establishment and allowed the picture to be posted on its official Instagram page. If Holmes were actually scouting secret wedding locations, itâ€™s highly unlikely sheâ€™d advertise herself on the property.
Of course, the actressâ€™s relationship with Foxx is the constant subject of bogus tabloid reports. Last month, a number of outlets alleged that Holmes and Foxx had called off a planned wedding and split over â€śtrust issues.â€ť The actressâ€™s rep later shot down the premise as â€ś100 percent untrue.â€ť Holmes and Foxx are still romantically involved, but theyâ€™re not planning a wedding, either in Ireland or anywhere else.
