Katie Holmes pictured for first time in public with new man Jamie Foxx

Having come out of a bizarre, Scientology-centric marriage, where she was reportedly auditioned for the role of Tom’s  wife by the church and forced to remain silent during childbirth, the Ohio-born girl was apparently living a much quieter life.

LOOKING as happy as she does beautiful, Katie Holmes glows in a floral dress at a New York fashion show yesterday.

Coming a day after she was snapped hand in hand with Baby Driver actor Jamie Foxx, she is the picture of a woman in love — and one who has finally been able to turn off Cruise control.

For the 38-year-old, the romantic barefoot stroll on the Malibu coast not only represented the first openly public outing with her boyfriend  but also her freedom.

She has been banned from having a public relationship for the past five years under the strict terms of her quickie divorce from superstar Tom Cruise, 55, a prominent member of the Church of Scientology.

The former Dawson’s Creek actress has gone to extraordinary lengths to keep her new relationship secret, resorting to wearing wigs and hats to meet Jamie, 49, after they reportedly started dating in 2013.

Another divorce clause meant any boyfriend was not allowed near 11- year-old Suri, her daughter with Tom, while another prevented her from talking about their marriage.

Now those terms have expired, she looks like a huge weight has  lifted.

Katie Holmes shared a picture of her and Suri on Instagram this week, laughing together in a restaurant, with the caption: “My sweetie.”

Beside them is another place setting, with the chair pulled out and a glass of wine, hinting that Jamie is the man behind the camera.

After escaping the legal clutches of Tom and the Church of Scientology, the couple seem to be subtly, but effectively, flipping them the V-sign.

A pal recently told a US magazine of Katie’s feelings for her then mystery man, saying: “She loves him from the tips of her toes to the top of her head.”

After Katie Holmes walked away from Tom in 2012, it was suggested she  had been afraid her husband wanted to ship Suri off to Sea Org — said to be a brutally strict Scientology faction — and was fed up of the strict rules imposed on their marriage by the church. She bought a cheap mobile to speak to lawyers, including her dad Martin, behind Tom’s back.

Her biggest fear, according to Ron Miscavige, whose son David is Scientology’s leader, was that Suri would turn against her after the split — just as Nicole Kidman’s daughter with Tom, Isabelle, had done.

The church has a “disconnection policy” where all ties are severed between a Scientologist and  friends or family opposing the religion.

Her priority was, therefore, to protect her relationship with her daughter.

Although it looked like Tom was in control of the divorce, Katie seemed to be calling the shots.

She got what was most precious — Suri. Katie secured sole custody and the divorce stipulated she would not be enrolled in the church.

Everything else — Katie’s career and  love life — was secondary.

She told a US mag this year: “My child is the most important person to me and her upbringing is paramount to my work right now.  It’s very important  I’m present and she has a stable, innocent childhood.”

Dad Martin also helped Katie get £3.6million in child support for Suri and £3.8million for herself.

Katie Holmes benefited from a £40million pre-nup in which she got £2million for each year of marriage, plus a trust fund for Suri.

So what did Katie do next? She moved to trendy Chelsea in New York and became the model mum,  teaching her mini-me to ride a bike, taking her to dance classes and treating her to ice-cream.

Katie later bought a six-bedroom property for £2.9million in a gated community of Calabasas, in LA, where the Kardashians hail from, and she and Suri split their time between the east and west coasts.

Having come out of a bizarre, Scientology-centric marriage, where she was reportedly auditioned for the role of Tom’s  wife by the church and forced to remain silent during childbirth, the Ohio-born girl was apparently living a much quieter life.

But behind the scenes there was increasing talk  of blossoming romances.  First came jazz musician Peter Cincotti in 2013, then Alexander Skarsgard,   her co-star in The Giver,  in 2014. Both were, unsurprisingly, fiercely denied.

Then there was her friendship with Tom’s Collateral co-star Jamie, who she met via her then husband in 2006.

A video of Katie Holmes dancing  with Jamie at a New York charity gala in 2013 first set tongues wagging.
