Jamie Foxx Walks Out on ESPN Interview; Jemele Hill Responds (VIDEO)

When it comes to his relationship with Katie Holmes, Jamie Foxx is particularly tight-lipped, recently walking off during a live interview with ESPN’s Michael Smith after the questioning became a bit too personal.

Foxx, 50, was speaking with Smith on Friday afternoon before the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game in which the actor was playing. After exchanging some light-hearted banter, Smith asked Foxx if a recent Valentine’s Day basketball game with Holmes helped him prepare for the game, causing Foxx to smirk, stand and walk off.

Smith’s good friend and former The Six co-host, Jemele Hill, called the response “bizarre” when TMZ caught up with the sports anchor in Los Angeles, especially since most of Hollywood already knows Holmes and Foxx are in a relationship.

Do you think Smith went too far?
