Jamie Foxx Defends Singer Sela Vave After Split from Katie Holmes

Jamie Foxx is speaking out in defense of singer Sela Vave after they were photographed holding hands days before it was announced that he and longtime girlfriend Katie Holmes had broken up.

The 51-year-old entertainer took to his Instagram Live Story to explain that he is simply just helping the 21-year-old rising singer with her career.

“When I met Ed Sheeran, I didn’t know him from Adam. He slept on my couch for six weeks — he ended up going on to do great things,” Jamie shared. “Nick Cannon was 13 years old, he would sleep in my old house. Before Ne-Yo was Ne-Yo, he would come to the crib…Everybody comes to my crib, no matter who you are.”

“But here was the thing, there is a young lady by the name of Sela Vave. I did the same thing with her,” Jamie continued. “She’s singing broken down Beyoncé, playing the guitar and I said ‘How the f— did this happen?’ So, we took her under our wing.”

Jamie then went on to explain the photos of him and Sela holding hands as they left a club together in Los Angeles last week.

“I’m escorting her to my car, to put her in the car — my artist, who hangs out with my kids and is as young as my daughter,” Jamie shared. “People try to make mountains out of molehills. We want to treat her the same way and give her the same opportunities. I told her it’s going to be this way. It’s a double standard when it comes to women.”

Jamie added: “I spoke to that girl’s mom, and she put her trust in me. We want to make sure she has the opportunity to show you the talent we saw. All of the unnecessary hate for the woman, just because the guys are coming here and they’re working hard, but when a girl does it, she has an ulterior motive. Stop that s—. I embrace all the artists [who] come here. That’s our artist. She’s been brought into the family, she works hard, and she’s a beautiful singer.”

Sela commented on Jamie‘s Live Story, writing, “For the people who care… here is the TRUE story… for everyone else you can keep talking and calling me a w—-, slut, home wrecker, thot, gold digger, that I should die, and whatever else you want.”

On Monday, it was confirmed that Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes had split up after over six years together.
