Jamie Foxx Reveals Why Marriage Isn’t For Him & Never Was

"I'm not cookie cutter."

Celebrity News

Academy award-winner Jamie Foxx is one of those celebrities that can do it all! He sings, acts, writes, plays piano and can make a whole room burst into laughter with one joke. With a new book and other projects on the way, he has shown that he has no plans of settling down in his career and apparently his love life. In his book, Act Like You Got Some Sense, the father of two daughters opened up about not wanting to get married and spoke with Daily Pop to provide further insight on his decision.


"I'm not cookie cutter so the 2.5 children, the wood paneling on the station wagon and the cottage, I didn't think that was me," he said.

He continued, "Then when you look at my daughters and their circumstances; growing up, Corrine (older daughter) was like, people are married and that's what they have and my friends but then a lot of those marriages ended up not doing well. As the kids got older, unfortunately, we saw the kids get fractured from their families. Us, we actually came together more, so I don't know what that is.

"I just know that it is different, but I know it's a whole lot of love. The pressure of me being married--- they (his daughters) don't even talk about it. I don't think we've had conversations about it. They just love they daddy and I just keep moving."

Jamie has a close-knit relationship with his daughters Corinne Foxx, 27, and Annalise Bishop, 13. He and Corrine worked together on the Fox network game show Beat Shazam and teamed up on the short-lived Netflix sitcom Dad Stop Embarrassing Me.

The JustMercy star briefly dated Corinne's mom Connie Kline in 1993 and had Corrine in 1994. He dated Annalise's mom Kristin Grannis on and off for several years.

While marriage may not be in the future for the "Gold Digger" singer, that hasn't stopped him from dating around.

Jamie has been reportedly linked to Lil Kim, Christina Milian, Eva Marcille, and Stacey Dash. The Clueless actress even spoke about their first date during her appearance on The Wendy Williams Show in 2010.

"I did his radio show, The Foxxhole, and after the show, he said, 'Do you want to go with me to some parties Sunday night, Oscar night?'" she told Wendy. "I was like, 'Oh, yeah, sure.' And then he texted me and it was for real.

"He sent a car for me and then I picked him up. He wasn't ready though. His family was there. It was all very, very wholesome. A real first [date]."

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
