Cape Town – If you’re planning on asking Jamie Foxx about Katie Holmes during an interview - don't.

Jamie sat down for a quick interview with ESPN via satellite while at NBA All-Star Weekend on Friday and things got horribly awkward when his rumoured girlfriend came up.

In the name of basketball ESPN host, Michael Smith, questioned the Ray actor about his Valentine’s Day date with Katie – the couple were reportedly spotted playing basketball together – and well, that was Jamie’s cue to get up and walk away.

“I saw pictures. Did you and Katie Holmes play basketball on Valentine's Day?” Michael asked.

Within seconds the poor tech guy was left standing in the shot with Jamie’s mic and headset.



Shortly after the incident, Michael sat back in his chair and reflected on the incident admitting that he was just trying to make conversation.
