Katie Holmes isn’t, allegedly, the reason behind Emilio Vitolo and Rachel Emmons’ split.
Weeks after the couple started dating, Emmons’ friend told Daily Mail that the 24-year-old designer was previously engaged to Vitolo. However, the chef ended their relationship via text after learning that his photos with Katie Holmes will be published by the tabloids.
Katie Holmes didn’t cause Emilio, Rachel’s split
Back then, tabloids blamed the Dawson’s Creek star for Vitolo and Emmons’ split. But Globe recently suggested that Holmes might not have anything to do with it.
A source told the tabloid that Vitolo prefers dating older women. And this is one of the reasons why she was attracted to Holmes. The chef is 33, while Emmons is much younger than him. But Holmes is eight years older than Vitolo.
“They were taking it slow but it wasn’t working out. He likes older women. He dated an older anchor at FOX and others, so he has a history with older women,” the source said.
Emilio Vitolo’s mom dislikes the actress
Unfortunately, Vitolo’s mom doesn’t allegedly approve of his relationship with Holmes because she prefers Emmons over the actress. And Vitolo’s mom couldn’t also fathom why her son would call off his engagement via text.
“His mom thinks she brought him up better than that. She didn’t like how Emilio handled this at all,” the source said.
Katie Holmes, Emilio Vitolo dating contract
However, Vitolo’s mom isn’t the only one that allegedly has concerns over Katie Holmes and his relationship. According to New Idea, the actress’s dad is also trying to gather information about Vitolo and his immediate family for fear that they could be using his daughter.
“Martin’s worried about this guy’s intentions, but he can’t tell Katie who to date, and she’s head over heels right now. He’ll only risk alienating Katie if he says what’s really on his mind. But what he can do is make sure Emilio’s not going to pull any kiss and tell stunts. Katie’s still pretty raw from her last two relationships and Martin doesn’t want her to blow her whole reputation on a rebound,” the source said.
Holmes’ dad has also, allegedly, asked Vitolo to sign a dating contract even before he decides to propose to the actress.
However, one should take the tabloids’ claims with a grain of salt.
There is no concrete proof that Katie Holmes and Vitolo’s loved ones are worried about their relationship. No one also knows for sure why Vitolo called off his engagement.
