Sela Vave is the singer who was seen out with Jamie Foxx in August 2019 amid rumors Foxx had split from longtime girlfriend Katie Holmes. Holmes and Oscar-winner Foxx have been together since 2013 but have not been seen publicly together since May’s 2019 Met Gala in New York City.
TMZ was the first report that Vave was the woman who was seen in West Hollywood with Foxx in the early hours of August 17. The pair were seen outside of Bootsy Bellows at around 2 a.m. holding hands and getting into his car.
