Katie Holmes has a new man in her life.
After secretly dating Jamie Foxx for almost five years of their relationship, Katie Holmes has gone public with her new romance. She and Emilio Vitolo are, reportedly, dating.
Photos of the loved-up couple show Holmes sitting on Vitolo’s lap while staring into her boyfriend’s eyes. According to WHO, the couple’s photos prove that they are not hiding their relationship.
“After being single for more than a year, it seems Holmes has found a passionate new romance,” the publication said.

The publication also said that Holmes’ relationship with Vitolo is different in that they are more open to being seen in public. As for Holmes and Foxx, it took the couple a few years before they confirmed their relationship.
It was in 2013 when Holmes and Foxx were first seen together in public without other celebrities. A source told People that the exes were flirting with each other at an event in the Hamptons.
“Foxx wrangled [Ellen] DeGeneres and Holmes for a group hug, the ladies flanking him. At one point, the actress even tried a sip of Foxx’s cocktail,” a source said.

Months later, Foxx was asked if he’s dating Katie Holmes, and he said no.
“[The rumors] are one hundred percent not true. In fact, it’s quite hilarious because we simply danced at a charity event along with a lot of other people,” he said.
Two years passed, but the dating rumors persisted. After all, Holmes and Foxx were photographed holding hands in public. However, the A-listers still refused to confirm the status of their relationship.

In the same year, another source told People that Holmes and Foxx see each other. However, things are not serious between them.
“This is not some intense romance. Jamie and Katie are friends and have been for a long time. They are two adults who are attractive and single… they’re not about to run off and make some serious commitment,” the source said.
Three years later, Holmes and Foxx attended the pre-Grammys party together. But when an interviewer asked him if he’s dating Holmes, he refused to answer the question.
In June 2018, a rep for Holmes responded to rumors that she and Foxx have called it quits.
“The Radar story is 100 percent untrue,” the rep said.
This was the only time that Katie Holmes and Foxx’s relationship was seemingly confirmed.
