Connie Kline was born on 29 March 1972, in California, USA, and is an accountant as well as a US Air Force veteran, but probably best recognized as the (now ex-) girlfriend of actor Jamie Foxx. Her former partner is known for his highly successful acting career, winning numerous awards. Some of his most notable projects include “Ray”, “Baby Driver”, “Django Unchained”, and “Miami Vice”.

As of mid-2020, Connie Kline’s net worth is estimated to be around $1 million, earned through her service in the military as well as her accounting career. She probably benefits from her ex-boyfriend too, who continuously gives support as they have a child together.
She is known to have a 5,000 square foot home in Los Angeles, while also owning a black Mercedes that was given to her by Foxx.
Life and Career
Connie’s life was mostly out of the spotlight – she served in the US Air Force when she was a young adult, staying in the Service for around five years. The Air Force as the name denotes is responsible for numerous air-related missions which include surveillance, reconnaissance and intelligence gathering as well as the obvious combat missions. It is one of the youngest branches of the US Armed Forces. While details of her service are unknown, she eventually discharged and began work as an accountant.
Connie settled in Simi Valley, California where she worked for the company CK Financial.

At a young age he developed a love for music, and attended church regularly, playing the piano which led him to join his church’s music team. He was also very athletic, and played American Football and basketball at Terrell High School. He didn’t envision a career in acting at first, as his dream was to become a professional American Football player.
After matriculating from high school, he accepted a scholarship to the US International University, a private university in California that offers numerous programs. During his time there, he took up musical and performing arts composition.
With a background in music and a talent for comedy, he then began considering a career in entertainment. He gave his first comedy performance during an open mic night, after he was dared by a girlfriend to perform. During this time, he thought of the name, Jamie Foxx which he felt was ambiguous enough. He then continued to pursue comedy projects, which led him to the world of acting.
Rise to Fame – Jamie Foxx
In 1991 Jamie became a cast member of “In Living Color”, a comedy sketch show created by Keenen Ivory Wayans. He gained a bit of fame during this time, which led to a recurring role in “Roc”. In 1996, he became the star of the sitcom “The Jamie Foxx Show” alongside Garcelle Beauvais and Christopher B. Duncan.
At the time the show aired through a recently established network, The WB, which struggled during its first years due to competition.
In 1999 he worked on the film “Any Given Sunday”, after being chosen thanks to his background in American Football. He then worked alongside Will Smith in the film “Ali”, before starring alongside Tom Cruise in “Collateral”, which tells the story of a cab driver who becomes the hostage of a hitman, who uses him to travel as he fulfills his contract. It was highly successful, and Foxx gained a lot of praise for his work, even getting him an Academy Award nomination.
Around this time, he also explored music interests, appearing in cameos for several artists such as Kanye West and Benzino.
The Success of Jamie Foxx
In 2004, Jamie was cast in one of his most successful film projects, portraying the late musician Ray Charles in the biographical film “Ray”, winning the Academy Award for best actor. He also became the third male in history to receive two Oscar nominations from two film projects in the same year, the other being for “Collateral”. In 2005, he began releasing music and taking this aspect of his career seriously. He’s now released five studio albums, most of which have had a lot of success.
Foxx continued to be a mainstay in Hollywood, and is regarded as a bankable star. In 2012, he worked alongside Quentin Tarantino in the film “Django Unchained”, co-starring with Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson. In 2017, he appeared as a criminal in the film “Baby Driver”, portraying a mentally unstable and trigger-happy man – his performance was praised, much like the entire film. One of his most recent projects is the game show “Beat Shazam”, which bears similarity to music game shows such as “Name that Tune”. He is also working on a reboot of the “Spawn” franchise, and is with Pixar for a new animated film “Soul”.
Connie’s relationship with Jamie Foxx was relatively short, but resulted in the birth of daughter Corinne in 1994. Connie remains connected with Foxx due to their child despite the two no longer being together, although they speak infrequently. She was once interviewed by the media, commenting that she has her reasons for staying away from the spotlight. Since the end of their relationship, there has been no news about her romantic endeavors, though she was spotted in public with another child indicating that she might have later married and started expanded her family. Her former partner has been linked to numerous high profile celebrities during his career, including Katie Holmes, Olivia Munn, Dollicia Bryan, Ashley Scott, and Eva Marcille.
