While most people pride themselves with a safe occupied by historic wines, priceless pieces of jewelry, and valuable documents, Hollywood icon, Jamie Foxx has something slightly different.

The actor and comedian opened up about having a priceless record of Whitney Houston's Karaoke performance lying somewhere in his safe.

JAMIE'S HILARIOUS STORY ABOUT THE RARE FOOTAGE

During an appearance on "Tonight Show," with Jimmy Fallon, the comedian shared mind-blowing details about his star-studded karaoke bashes and partying with notable figures like the late Whitney Houston and ex-husband Bobby Brown.

He recounted a particularly crazy party night, which had the presence of the former Hollywood couple, and having his night made by Whitney, who was then, the female singer of the millennium after she sang the lyrics of her hit single, "I Will Always Love You."

The father of two also described how he recorded the one-of-a-kind performance using a camcorder. After the party ended, however, the songstress's partner, Bobby Brown, showed up at his doorstep demanding for the footage, which Jamie denied having, leading the rapper to ransack his wardrobe and made away with some of his clothes.

Eight weeks later, he saw a picture of Bob, rocking his clothes on People's magazine, and passing it off as a Dolce and Gabbana creation. He didn't mind, though, because he possessed the ultimate prize, the priceless footage.

When asked if he was still in possession of the tape, the legendary actor confirmed it was safely tucked away in his safe deposit box.

JAMIE'S FAMED HOME PARTIES

The "Robinhood" icon holds a reputation for throwing some of the most spectacular Hollywood celebrity home bashes. To further indulge his partying sprees, the star once owned a single storey compound in Tarzana, which he called Foxxhole dedicated as his party pad.

The 6000 square foot property, which he acquired in 1997, was named after the entertainment icon's comedy radio channel. In 2008, the famed party pad was listed for sale at $3.299 million.

Jamie's star-studded bashes were more than just a party hangout to him, as he once revealed:

"What I've always wanted to do was put artists in the same room."

The presenter's approach has been successful, as his parties have witnessed the presence of stars like Drake, Diddy, Ross, 2 Chainz, Pharrel, and even the Hip hop billionaire, Jay-Z over the years. In addition to having celebrities perform, the bashes also avail him of rare opportunities to interview the various entertainment icons.

JAMIE'S RELATIONSHIP WITH KATIE HOLMES

American actress, Katie Holmes, and Jamie Foxx were rumored to be an item for years. However, the duo managed to keep the facts of the relationship a secret until their "supposed" split in 2019.

The tales of their romance first surfaced a year after Katie's divorce from Tom Cruise. The pair were spotted together at an event in Hampton, where they shared a dance. However, the actor denied the claims shortly after, implying it was simply dance and nothing more.

Following Foxx's denial, the rumors became more intense, with reports of their occasional sightings together in disguise going viral. The two made a point of showing up at each other's parties, but never as a couple.
