Jamie Foxx is putting the kibosh on claims he a cradle robber.
Just when the internet was swirling with reports that he ditched Katie Holmes for 19 year old singer, Sela Vave, he took to Instagram (where else) to set the record straight.
Foxx posted a message in his IG stories on Wednesday explaining that Sela is an artist who he is mentoring, that’s it. He did admit that she is living at his Thousand Oaks, CA compound but it’s strictly business. If you recall Foxx has mentored several artists over the years — Neyo, Nick Cannon and Ed Sheeran — who also slept on his couch before hitting it big.
“Here was the thing, there is a young lady by the name of Sela Vave. I did the same thing with her,” he said before explaining they met through another artist.
“She’s singing broken down Beyoncé, playing the guitar and I said ‘How the f**k did this happen?’“ he recalled. “So, we took her under our wing.”
He continued, “People try to make mountains out of molehills. We want to treat her the same way and give her the same opportunities.” And added that he warned that this could happen, saying, “I told her it’s going to be this way. It’s a double standard when it comes to women.”

For the people who care… here is the TRUE story(swipe)… for everyone else you can keep talking and calling me a whore, slut, home wrecker, thot, gold digger, that I should die, and what ever else you want. Because it doesn’t matter to me, I’m out here to work and do what I love most. #music #killthedoublestandard
Photos of Foxx and Vave coming out of Bootsy Bellows nightclub on Saturday August 17 first sparked dating rumors. The duo was spotted in the wee hours of the night holding hands … so you can see how it may have appeared to be romantic.
Since then, Vave says she’s been called all kinds of names, including “home-wrecker,” and was told she “should die” for busting up Foxx and Holmes relationship.
Vave also posted the message on her Instagram with a caption that begins: “For the people who care… here is the TRUE story …”
For the record, Foxx and Holmes reportedly broke up a couple months ago. The Dawson’s Creek alum seemed to be unbothered by the news and was potted all smile sin NYC over the weekend with her 13 year old daughter Suri Cruise.
