Holmes and Vitolo sparked romance rumors on September 4 during a dinner date at a SoHo eatery.

Emilio, whose father Emilio Vitolo Sr. has owned Emilio’s Ballato in SoHo since the early 90s, had his arms wrapped around Katie.

Emilio’s Ballato is a favorite of the celeb set, with fans like Whoopi Goldberg, Joe Jonas, Justin Bieber, Rihanna and Bradley Cooper regularly stopping by for a bite.

Monday night’s display comes as a shock to many being that Holmes is notoriously private about her personal life. 

The Logan Lucky actress was wed to Tom Cruise from 2006 until their divorce in 2012. They first began dating in 2005 and by June of that year Katie converted to Tom’s religion of Scientology and accepted his marriage proposal. 

As if things between the pair did not move fast enough, Katie revealed in October that she was pregnant with the couple’s first and only child, daughter Suri, who is now 14-years-old.

Suri was born in April of 2006 and by November of that year, Tom and Katie became husband and wife during a lavish ceremony held in Italy.

After filing for divorce from Tom in 2012, Katie reportedly feared the actor and his association with the Church of Scientology. Despite the eeriness of the organization, Katie was awarded full custody of Suri, who currently resides with her in NYC. 

In March of this year, Katie opened up about her complicated marriage to the devout Scientologist in an interview with InStyle magazine. ‘That time was intense. It was a lot of attention, and I had a little child on top of it,’ she recalled.

‘We had some funny moments out and about in public. So many people I didn’t know became my friends and helped us out and that’s what I love about the city,’ explained Holmes, who moved to NYC following her divorce.

After ending her marriage with Tom, Katie began dating Jamie Foxx, 52, who she was first linked to in 2013 when the pair was seen strolling hand in hand through Malibu.

The pair never officially confirmed they were dating and by 2019 reports of a split began to emerge.  

At the time insiders told People that the relationship had run ‘its course,’ explaining: ‘This industry is very tough on relationships.’   

They went on to say there were no bitter feelings between the pair, who simply grew apart.

‘Jamie thinks Katie is an incredible human being. They had a very, very deep connection,’ the source said.

‘They brought each other a lot of joy and laughter,’ the insider continued about the pair, who were last seen together at the Met Gala in May of 2019 – their first and last red carpet as a couple.

When Katie was first cast as the lovable character Joey in the hit television series Dawson’s Creek in 1997, she allegedly engaged in a romantic relationship with actor Joshua Jackson.

Jackson, 42, played Pacey Witter in the popular teen drama series, who happened to be Joey’s romantic interest in the show.

The pair reportedly dated for around a year’s time, but, eventually, split at some point in 1999. 

Joshua recently welcomed a daughter with wife Jodie Turner-Smith, 34, whom he married secretly last year.

After enduring a brief relationship with her Dawson’s Creek co-star, Katie became smitten with Sweet Magnolias actor Chris Klein, 41.

The pair began dating in the year 2000 and, after three-years together, they got engaged. 

Unfortunately for Chris, Katie’s hectic Dawson’s Creek schedule kept them apart for the majority of their relationship.

In an interview with People in 2002, Chris opened up about his long distance romance with Katie.

‘We certainly don’t see each other as much as we’d like, but we try to use the time that we have to the best of our advantage,’ he explained.

Following the series finale of Dawson’s Creek in 2003, Katie made the big move to Los Angeles in order to live with Klein. 

The pair, who dated for a total of five years, ended their engagement in March of 2005, according to People.
