Katie Holmes glows on a walk with Suri Cruise after Jamie Foxx breakup news

Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx split after six years together. Katie Holmes appeared unfazed by her breakup from longtime boyfriend Jamie Foxx, while photographed out and about in New York on Monday. The “Dawson’s Creek” alum, 40, was snapped taking her dogs for a walk with daughter Suri Cruise, 13, and had an ear-to-ear grin. Holmes kept her look casual with jeans, a T-shirt and a pair of sneakers from the Madewell x Veja collaboration ($150), while her daughter upped the ante with a flowing skirt and sleeveless button-down shirt.
