Katie Holmes’ relationship with boyfriend Emilio Vitolo Jr is heating up and his ex-fiancé was seen for the first time since their nasty split.
The 41-year-old actress has been dating 33-year-old Emilio for a couple of weeks. The two have reportedly known each other for several months but only became romantic recently. The relationship is the first for Katie after her breakup with Jamie Foxx.
In the past couple of weeks, Katie and Emilio have been spotted around New York numerous times. The two seem inseparable at the moment and aren’t afraid to show a ton of PDA in public.
A source told People, “Emilio is very charming, flirty. It’s easy to see how Katie fell for him. She seems very into him. She keeps texting Emilio all day long and he loves it. He can’t get enough of her attention.”
Earlier this week, Katie and Emilio were photographed holding hands in Downtown. The two made a stop at Katie’s apartment where they stayed for a short time. Katie has not been afraid to show her love for Emilio in public whatsoever.
The romance is brand new but already causing a stir. The actress’s new beau was reportedly engaged to a woman named Rachel Emmons right before meeting the actress. Daily Mail broke the story, Emilio reportedly split with Rachel after photos of him kissing Katie were published.
Emilio and Rachel were allegedly living together when he broke up with her via text. After the split, Rachel reportedly scrubbed her social media accounts of any trace of Emilio.
On Tuesday, Rachel reappeared on social media for the first time since the split. She posted a mirror selfie wearing a cowboy hat. She looks unfazed amid the drama and captioned the post, “Lost in Texas.”
A source told Daily Mail, “Katie and Emilio met through mutual friends and have been ”friendly” since October of last year. Katie definitely knew Emilio had a fiancée and started something with him while he was very much living with his fiancée.”
They added, “They have been strong since March, but it got more serious after she returned from Ohio where she kept quarantine with her family.”
Katie has yet to comment on her alleged romance with Emilio but the photos of the two speak for themself.
