Jamie Foxx has shut down rumours that he is in a relationship with Sela Vave.
The rumours started after the two were seen holding hands as they left Bootsy Bellows nightclub Saturday morning. But in a series of videos posted by Vave, Foxx revealed that another artist introduced him to Valve, and wanted to help guide her music career after seeing her perform.
“She’s singing broken down Beyoncé, playing the guitar, and I said, ‘How the fuck did this happen?,’” he said. “So, we took her under our wing.”
He continued, explaining earlier videos of them entering his car: “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.”
Vave is assumed to be 19, while Foxx’s oldest daughter Corinne Foxx is 25.
The Oscar Award-winning actor added that he’d met Vave’s mother who he said “put her trust in me,” adding, “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 shit.”
Vave also spoke about the hate she has received over allegations that they are dating, especially in light of the recent revelation of his break-up with longtime on-again, off-again girlfriend Katie Holmes.
“I know you guys are reading between the lines, but I embrace all the artists who come here,” Foxx said. “What happened in the press with our girl Sela – that’s our family. We don’t ever cross the lines like that personally. That’s our artist, that’s our family, that’s our love. She’s been brought into the family, she works hard, she’s a beautiful singer. I can’t wait for you to hear her.”

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
