KATIE Holmes is like a teenager in love, with new beau Emilio Vitolo Jr.
The actress, who shares 14-year-old daughter Suri with ex-husband Tom Cruise, was spotted cuddling up to the chef – who “dumped his fiancee over text” for the actress – as they took a ferry ride in New York City on Tuesday.
Katie looked affectionate with Emilio as they cozied up as they rode on the NYC Ferry to East 90th Street and went for a walk along the river on a beautiful late summer day in the city.
They both wore black masks.
Katie appeared to be make-up free, with fresh-from-bed hair which was pulled into a loose ponytail.
She wore a red shirt and he kept it simple in a gray polo neck.
The couple appeared very smitten with each other.
The new couple got together after Emilio allegedly dumped his “blindsided” fiancee through a text message, a friend of his ex claimed exclusively to The Sun.
Sources say that the 41-year-old actress and chef and actor Emilio Vitolo met when they were working together on a recent indie movie.
According to the friend, Emilio hasn’t spoken to his live-in fiancée, designer Rachel Emmons, since he suddenly ended their engagement after more than 18 months.
Katie broke up with Jamie Foxx last year after a six-year on-and-off romance.
The actress has 14-year-old daughter Suri with ex-husband Tom Cruise.
The source told The Sun: “Rachel and Emilio got together in February last year and were engaged after just a few months, it was a whirlwind romance but they were very much in love.
“They were planning their wedding before the pandemic but had been having issues recently … different work schedules, and Covid made it difficult.
“But Rachel was left blindsided when he suddenly ended their engagement via text on Tuesday, just two days before photographs emerged of him with Katie.
The source went on: “Katie and Emilio were working on an indie movie together about a month ago and Rachel knew that.
“He’s trying to get into acting, but nobody really knew who he was until this happened.
“Rachel found out about their dates after friends sent her articles showing them together, she thinks it’s disrespectful for it to be so public.”
The insider added: “They were close while filming together but she never saw this coming.”
