Not everyone was amused by Jamie Foxx’s question-dodging behavior during the NBA’s All-Star weekend. Foxx abruptly ended an on-air interview with ESPN when Sportscenter’s Michael Smith asked Foxx an innocuous question about his not-so-secret relationship with actress Katie Holmes. Smith’s former co-host, Jemele Hill, thinks Foxx had no right to shut down the interview.
“I thought he unnecessarily made Mike look bad,” Hill told TMZ. “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.”
Smith asked the actor, who was playing in this year’s Celebrity All-Star Game, if he and Holmes played basketball on Valentine’s Day, as these photos suggest. The question fueled a somewhat dramatic response from Foxx, who awkwardly removed his headset and microphone before abruptly walking away from the interview to continue his warm-ups.

As long as you are not messing with children. People/adults should mind their own business. We hate when whites mess with us because we are Black,but you trying to dig at Jaime.In a classy way.that smile.He said f. you. Peace Jaime.

She’s all dumb!! Only why she’s saying that is because it was Michael Smith asking the question. He shoulda known better than to ask that question. His relationship was never public. Can’t stand her!
He didn't "storm out"
He was there for basketball what the fuck you talking about his personal life for its a time and a place for that
Frazier get Beija back. We like looking at her….
Have you not been demoted enough miss? The only place left is off the scene of public journalism
Why would a Jamelle Jamie interview get heated lol
y'all need to stop reaching man

y'all toughened up?!
Jaime fox is too fuckin old to b actin shy like that.
Shut the fuck up complex is getting more trashy the more I click on it…. Make America great again
Stg I thought this was Kevin Durant 😂 from the thumbnail
There’s a reason why a lot of people don’t know about jamie foxx and Katie Holmes: guaranteed interviewers are told beforehand that there will be no Katie Holmes related questions, yet this reporter went ahead and asked him anyway. Don’t blame him at all for walking away.
Jemele hasn't said it is racist for Jamie Foxx to be with a white woman instead of a black woman yet? 🤔
No one watched the 6
Thought that was Kevin Durant on the thumbnail
Foxx didn’t want to talk about his snow bunny. Talk to HIM. Talk ABOUT HIM. Ask HIM questions.
How fucking hard is it …
Jamie dun fallen in the sunken place
I have to agree with her…Just say you don't want to answer the questions.
Why does jemelle still have a job? Her and that other dude shoulda been fired a while ago.
Jamie Foxx had every right to be annoyed. He was being interviewed about a charity celebrity basketball game. What he and Katie Homes have was not the topic and is clearly a personal matter.
Thought that was KD in the thumbnail
Jemele Hill is the worst. ESPN…cut her man shes terrible
Don’t turn Jemele Hill into Ja Rule. Only opinion that should be relevant at all situations is Ja Rule’s.
She said "Do you love me"?……….
Jamie is a legend lol
