The low-key couple has reportedly been dating for years -- though Foxx denied it to ET in 2013, claiming the rumors were "one hundred percent not true" -- but "good friend" Claudia Jordan confirmed that the romance is very much on.

"What I've learned about society today is that they're so thirsty.
“Wow, that’s sounds like a great time–you should be happy for them! When she was able to step back and think about her true feelings–having them never get together or give it a try–she realized how rude she sounded.
