One of the most elusive couples in Hollywood has called it quits. 

On Monday, E! News confirmed Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx have split with a source sharing they have not been together since May. The news comes six years since romance rumors first sparked over the two stars back in 2013. At the time, Foxx publicly called the chatter "one hundred percent not true," though two years later, a grainy photo emerged of the couple holding hands in a recording studio

Since then, the private pair have progressively gone more public, particularly in recent years beginning with their Labor Day stroll on the beach hand in hand in 2017. Despite their increased sightings together, the two kept quiet about their relationship through to the end. 

It was only until the Oscar winner was recently photographed holding another woman's hand on the way out of Lil Pump's 19th birthday celebration that questions were raised over his relationship status with Holmes. According to People, the woman spotted with the musician, Sela Vave, is the producer's newest artist. A source told the magazine she's "just a girl he's helping out, a young singer." 

While we may never get the entire story on how and why Foxx and Holmes ended, revisit all the ways they kept fans guessing throughout their notoriously private romance in E!'s gallery below:

June 2016: Claudia Jordan Backtracks

While fans thought the long-rumored romance had finally been confirmed when Claudia Jordan said on the Allegedly podcast he "seems very happy" with Holmes, she quickly backtracked and said she "misspoke." "I have no knowledge of Jamie with Katie at all...I've never seen them together. He's never told me he's dating her," Jordan told ET. "I don't have the knowledge of this being fact, I don't."

September 2017: A PDA-Filled Labor Day

December 2017: Her Beau's Birthday Bash

Just over a week later, Holmes made an appearance at Foxx's lavish 50th birthday bash, though she was careful to hide her face on the way out. "She seemed like she was in a great mood," a source told E! News at the time. "Katie wasn't going to miss this night."
