Jamie Foxx Rumors
Over the next 96 hours, [Victor Oladipo] would host one party at a club with Cardi B, another with Snoop Dogg and Floyd Mayweather. He’d sing with Jamie Foxx, dunk with Black Panther and toast Michael Jordan’s birthday at a $100 million mansion in Bel-Air. He’d play Jenga in a sneaker store stock room with someone who goes by The Shiggy Show, an apt moniker for the weekend, and he’d dance alone in front of 1,000 people at a practice. He’d eat sushi from Katsuya and chicken from Popeyes. He’d ride in enough Mercedes Sprinters to fill a presidential motorcade, protected by three security guards and primped by two stylists. They would present him with approximately 40 ensembles, a dozen of which he would wear. He’d wake up early to toss 12-pound medicine balls and do plyometric pushups in the J.W. Marriott fitness center, and at 9 a.m. Sunday, he’d watch online the weekly sermon delivered by Pastor John K. Jenkins at First Baptist Church of Glenarden back home in Maryland.
ESPN star Jemele Hill says the way Jamie Foxx shut down a live “SportsCenter” interview over a Katie Holmes question was bizarre … since EVERYBODY knows they’re dating! Hill’s good friend and former “The Six” co-host Michael Smith was the one asking the Katie Holmes question Friday when Foxx stopped the interview and walked off.
Hill says she and Smith both respect Foxx a lot — but in this particular instance, “I thought he unnecessarily made Mike look bad.” “I thought it was kind of bizarre why he acted that way … like I thought [Jamie’s relationship with Katie] was pretty public and that everybody knew, but apparently everybody doesn’t know.”
None other than actor and singer Jamie Foxx performing “You’ll Still Have Cleveland” dedicated to Cavs fans dealing with the NBA Finals lost to Golden State on Monday. Foxx, who spoke about his support for Cavs forward LeBron James with Kimmel, made references to the All Star forward as well as Cleveland natives Halle Berry, Drew Carey, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during his performance.
ESPN’s NBA Countdown crew really set Jamie Foxx up to fail on Wednesday night. Foxx—who is currently out promoting his new film, Sleepless—stopped by the set of the show during halftime of the Trail Blazers/Warriors game, and he was asked to take a look at a meme that Tracy McGrady had posted on his Instagram earlier in the night. That meme featured six NBA players—Hakeem Olajuwon, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Tim Duncan, and Shaquille O’Neal—and the line, “Name the worst player in this picture.”
Foxx wasn’t the only one on the set who selected Kobe. Not surprisingly, Jalen Rose—who played a part in Kobe’s epic 81-point game in 2006—did, too. But Foxx provided his answer so quickly that, within just minutes, NBA fans were going in on him on social media for picking Kobe. They didn’t appreciate his explanation for choosing him, and they essentially told Foxx to stick to acting over talking hoops.
