Katie Holmes & Emilio Vitolo are ‘cooling off’ after about eight months of pandemic lust

Katie Holmes and Emilio Vitolo Jr clutch hands in NYC

In September of last year, we learned that Katie Holmes had gotten herself a man. The man in question was Emilio Vitolo, a restaurateur who was engaged to another woman when he began dating Katie. Soon his fiancee was out on her ass, and Emilio and Katie were pap-strolling their way through the pandemic. They wandered around New York, wearing masks and holding hands. They wore good coats and terrible clown pants. All was well. But back in January, cracks began to form in the pandemic romance. Sources began to whisper that Katie was just having fun with Emilio, that he was just a good time, a place-holder until she went back to work. There were fewer pap strolls and fewer stories about their love. And now people wonder if Emilio and Katie have already started winding things down:

Katie Holmes and Emilio Vitolo Jr.’s relationship is cooling off, sources tell Page Six. The couple were first spotted together last September and have been joined at the hip while seen canoodling around Manhattan.

However, Holmes has recently been away shooting a new movie, only returning to NYC sporadically. This past weekend, the star was seen in the city as she celebrated her daughter Suri’s 15th birthday — with Vitolo nowhere to be seen. We’re now told that while Holmes and Vitolo haven’t broken up, things have definitely cooled down.

“Katie has a lot of big priorities in her life — she’s a single mom, her daughter always comes first and things were moving very fast,” a source said.

This was Holmes’ first relationship since splitting with Jamie Foxx in August 2019 after six years together. She is believed to have first met Vitolo at his family’s Soho restaurant Emilio’s Ballato in early 2020. Their romance was “organic,” a source who knows Holmes previously told us.

Another source who knows the couple added, “Katie has a lot going on and Emilio is busy working at his restaurant with his dad.”

Well, I’ll say this – maybe Katie went into it just wanting to have some fun and romance. She was never out here, telling us that Emilio was “the one.” We only believed they were super-serious because they were together constantly for months. Maybe it was a typical lustful hookup situation that just fizzled out when they got bored with each other or found something else to occupy their time. No harm, no foul. I mean, except for the fiancee he dumped as soon as someone famous came along.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if he tries to go back to his ex, cuz he’s already showed he’s a douche.

  2. Darla says:

    LOL true about the fiancée, but she was better off finding out now. If I recall, she’s young and beautiful. Run girl. There’s a bus coming in 3 minutes.

      The only dating advice anyone needs: “Run girl. There’s a bus coming in 3 minutes.” *clapping gif*

      @DARLA 😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽❣️❣️❣️

    That is quite the selection of photos, more shots of them in a couple months than I have of my husband and I from the past 10 years, lol.

    That last shot in the dress, oof. But maybe the change from pants and coats is a manifestation of a new chapter for her in more ways than one. I just hope she’s not heartbroken and this “it was always just a temporary fling” isn’t some spin to cover that.

    clown pants!

    Team Ex-Fiancée

    Good. He seems scummy.

    • smcollins says:

      He really does. I could never get past his greasy-looking, slicked-backed hair and weaselly eyes, not to mention the major douche vibes he gives off. Fling or not why, Katie, why? Yuck.

  7. Lucy2 says:

    How absolutely shocking, said no one.

  8. Jillie says:

    What the hell does this even mean? Lol
    Their romance was “organic,”

    • Darla says:

      I know what it means, I was just talking about this with a friend yesterday. Organic meaning you are not out looking for someone by being set up on blind dates, or on dating sites. But you meet someone maybe thru networking, your favorite hobby, etc, and there’s a spark and it just develops. I like those.

      • Jules says:

        yea he was already engaged to someone else. sounds like someone is trying to rewrite the narrative.

    • ACB says:

      It wasn’t the totally stage-managed, Tom Cruise-style LOVE AFFAIR.

  9. Julia K says:

    The deal breaker; he asked for a loan to keep business afloat. Difficult to maintain a romance when dollar signs enter.

  10. Jaded says:

    That whole situation was deplorable. She busted up a solid (?) relationship and his ex-girlfriend was dumped unceremoniously and humiliatingly while they pap-strolled their romance all over NY. That was done to me once upon a time and you never forget how badly it hurts. I’ll have the sore spot for the rest of my life. There’s a big yellow karma bus coming for those two.

    • lucy2 says:

      She absolutely should not have gotten involved with an engaged guy, but he’s the one who cheated and busted up his own relationship. Neither of them look good in this situation, and it seemed inevitable that it would fizzle out (or he’d cheat on her too).

    • 2lazy4username says:

      Nobody busts up a solid relationship.

  11. Ariel says:

    She seems to have a bad picker.

  12. Watson says:

    Girl should have stayed with Pacey.

  13. candy says:

    “things were moving very fast,” a source said.

    Seems a lot of her relationships start this way. Red flag!
