Katie Holmes and Emilio Vitolo’s Romance: From PDA Pics to Post-Pandemic Split

Holmes’ now-ex is a New York City chef, who works at Emilio’s Ballato in SoHo.

Vitolo grew up in his father’s restaurant, serving and cooking for famous regulars like Denzel Washington, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lenny Kravitz and more.

The pair was first spotted out together in September — though Vitolo did comment on one of Holmes’ Instagram pics in July, and a source told ET that the couple knew each other for almost a year before going public, having first met in the fall of 2019.

ET’s source said in October that this relationship was unlike any other Holmes has ever been in.

Holmes and her now-15-year-old daughter, Suri, celebrated Thanksgiving with a quiet weekend getaway to Upstate New York, without her beau.

The couple spent several weeks apart while Katie was in Connecticut working on a project, and after she returned, they determined too much had changed and agreed to amicably end the relationship and continue as friends.
