Katie Holmes’ boyfriend, Bobby Wooten III, has met Suri

Just to get this bit o’ bitchiness out of the way, I think Katie Holmes is such a pretty woman, but I hate this Chloé dress on her. What I’m sure is a very expensive dress looks like it’s falling apart. And I’m fine with Boho chic usually, but they leaned too far in with the unwashed hair and clunky black shoes. I like her necklace, though. What is also notable in that photo is Katie and boyfriend Bobby Wooten III have made their relationship Red Carpet official. That’s them walking the RC for her Alone Together premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. I’m glad they are going strong. So strong, in fact, that Katie has already brought him home to meet Suri.

Katie Holmes and her musician boyfriend Bobby Wooten III have taken their relationship to the next level.

A source tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue that Wooten has spent time with Holmes’ inner circle, including Suri, her 16-year-old daughter with ex-husband Tom Cruise.

“He is getting to know her family,” the insider says of the composer, who is currently playing bass in Moulin Rouge! The Musical on Broadway.

“Katie is having a great time with Bobby,” the source adds. “He is very kind and happy. He makes her laugh.”

As far as we know, Katie and Bobby have been a couple for about two months. Yesterday Kaiser talked about Kim Kardashian having a six-month rule before her kids could meet her boyfriends. I don’t know if there are accepted dating rules on these things. I assume it depends on the person and more importantly, the kid. I’m sure, all things being equal, the age of the child is a factor. Suri is 16, so I image there would be less to worry about with attachment issues. With teenagers you can talk about the status of your relationship, let them know if it’s casual or whatever, set expectations. I don’t really have an opinion on this. I’ve always thought Katie was a good mom, so I generally defer to the decisions she makes where Suri is concerned.

And Katie has already invited her mom on a date with Bobby, so either Katie is really serious with him, or she just gets her family involved quickly. I used to do that. I figured if my family didn’t like them, I could get rid of them right away. I didn’t have kids, though. Or maybe Bobby’s the one? Who knows. He’s talented and seems like a nice guy, based on nothing more than a few fluff pieces I’ve read about their relationship. My only hesitation is in the photos of them together, Katie’s reactions look so performative. But that may be her way of sticking it to her exes more than anything else. I hope everyone involved is having fun. A 33-year-old musician who works with David Byrne and plays Coachella would be pretty cool for a 16-year-old to hang out with. I’m sure Suri has no complaints.

    I missed where she broke up with that guy during lockdown who left his fiancée or some such for her… when did that happen?

    These two look cute together and very loved up in that dinner photo. Glad she’s finding someone who makes her smile after all that Tom Cruise drama!

  2. Barrett says:

    Her posture is just as bad as mine! But they are super cute faced couple! Easy on the eyes

  3. Bettyrose says:

    He’s cute. And I like the dress. I bet Suri is a real beauty. Wonder who she’ll be as an adult. Model/actress or run screaming from that world? Good choice to raise her in NYC away from xenu insanity.

    • Alessandra says:

      This is slightly peripheral, but does anyone know if Tom Cruise ever sees Suri? I would assume she’s been declared a “suppressive person,” but I thought big celebs like him had some wiggle room.

      • Aud says:

        I recall reading articles which say he does not have contact with her. So I do believe she’s been labeled a suppressive person. I don’t think Tom wants wiggle room honestly.

      • LilacMaven says:

        Tom last saw Suri in 2013.

        She’s been labeled a “potential trouble source,” because she lives with Katie, and Katie is a “suppressive person” according to Tom’s friend and cult leader, Dave Miscavige.

  4. Ariel says:

    She went from love bombing victim to cult zombie to mother on a mission and got herself and her kid out. And her kid never got indoctrinated to “my mom is an SP” crap.
    She is amazing, she’s a baller, and she deserves all the happiness.

    And make sure when they are interviewing Tom Cruise about his MI movies or top gun that no one mention that a lot of his money is funneled to a cult or he uses free sea org labor, or he abandoned his child because she was removed from the cult at age 6.
    Let him give you the bright, surgically puffed smile and play movie star- who may or may not think he is jesus of the creepy, abusive cult.

      “And make sure when they are interviewing Tom Cruise about his MI movies or top gun that no one mention that a lot of his money is funneled to a cult or he uses free sea org labor, or he abandoned his child because she was removed from the cult at age 6.”

      and remember, as a movie goer, that you should abandon all of your views/principles regarding the cult when TC puts out a sequel to a 30+ year old movie because nostalgia.

  5. OriginalMich says:

    She looks 20 years younger than her Cruise years! The stress must have been unbearable.

    Is it just me or does that dress make her look pregnant?

    • TrixC says:

      Yes, but I think it’s just her bad posture. And a bad dress.

    • Jan90067 says:

      I thought that immediate, as well, seeing that! But then, it could just be a food baby, and bad posture 😄

      I like the dress, but man, that styling! Those black, clunky shoes are SO WRONG with this! It needs a simple, strappy, summery sandal! That bag is also to “heavy”. Oh well… lol.

      She looks very happy, and that’s the BEST accessory!

  6. Amy Bee says:

    I didn’t even know she had a new boyfriend. They look good together.

  7. SophieJara says:

    Hasn’t it been two months since their pap stroll coming out photos? I don’t think that’s the beginning of their relationship, I would imagine that was some time after they started dating.

    • Cat says:

      Agreed they’ve been dating longer than that. In the first pics of them they are with her mum. So I doubt that was a new thing.

  8. TIFFANY says:

    I don’t think this is performative because Katie is not that great of an actress.

    She is just happy and blissed.

  9. Lens says:

    Remember when she was dating Jamie fox for all those years? They were never seen together for years and everyone believed it was because Katie didn’t want to upset Tom or some such. I also heard after 5 years Suri still hadn’t met Jamie, also thought to be some Tom inspired edict. Now I believe it as ALL on Jamie because even with that younger chef dude Katie was all in making it a public romance like his one. Hope it works out for them.

  10. Theresa says:

    Is it just me or does she look pregnant in that picture of the two of them

    • Julia K says:

      She is very experienced at posing for photos. She absolutely must realize that her tummy is pouching out and what people will think. I would hope she is not preggers until this relationship has time to progress.

  11. Lisa says:

    That orange dress is AWFUL> Katie, please no more 80s secretary dresses. You can do better.

  12. pocket litter says:

    If anyone deserves happiness, Katie and Suri both do. Happy for them all. Hope it all works out for them.

  13. Kristin says:

    I like Katie Holmes. I think she’s sweet and pretty uncomplicated, and any woman who pulls the badass boss move she pulled to protect her child from a crazy cult is aces in my book. I’m still in awe of how she orchestrated her escape from Scientology, completely blindsiding Tom Cruise when he was on location in another country! That’s a good mom.

  14. Jillybean says:

    Never have been a fan of hers- it’s always baffled me that she is a “celebrity “ she’s a meh grade actor and bland in her physical appearance and hasn’t done much since Dawsons…. I don’t get it

  15. jferber says:

    He’s a handsome dude. I hope he treats her well and has a good relationship with Suri (unlike her own father). I also think Katy will get an iron-clad pre-nup and she should. Whatever money she got from Tom was blood money, but she never should have married him.
