After OK! spilled that Katie Holmes and her restaurateur beau Emilio Vitolo Jr. had officially called it quits, sources are now revealing that the NYC-based chef is single, ready to mingle and already signed up for dating apps to help him get over his ex.
A source close to the chef dished that “Emilio was in a bad mood while working on Thursday night — he seemed stressed and didn’t want to be bothered. But once the restaurant closed, he celebrated his friend’s birthday and was seen drinking bourbon and wine.”
Vitolo Jr. was spotted “smiling and having a good time” after hours cozying up to a female friend and other pals. “Having the support of his friends has helped him with the breakup,” the insider added.
Throughout the party, an eyewitness noticed the newly single 33-year-old was on the prowl. “He’s not wasting any time looking for someone new to date,” an insider dished, with another source spilling that Vitolo Jr. already rejoined Raya — the exclusive dating app for the rich and fabulous.
As OK! previously reported, a rep for Holmes confirmed her split from Vitolo Jr. on Friday, May 14. “The pair have parted ways,” the spokesperson said. As for why, a source recently spilled, “Their relationship fizzled,” adding that “Katie and Emilio really enjoyed their time together — it just simply didn’t work out.”
Though the 42-year-old Dawson’s Creek alum's team is downplaying the couple's parting of ways, OK! previously dished that the A-lister felt as if the aspiring actor had "ulterior motives" when it came to dating her, which put a strain on their relationship they just couldn't overcome.
With the recent revelation that the first dating app Vitolo Jr. joined was the notoriously celebrity-filled Raya, Holmes might have been right all along.
