- Katie Holmes and new boyfriend Emilio Vitolo have recently been spotted on a series of PDA-filled dates in New York City.
- Vitolo was reportedly engaged to fashion designer Rachel Emmons when he and Holmes got together, and ended things when the first photos of his dates with Holmes emerged.
- Holmes and Vitolo, upsettingly, are now facing abuse online.
Well, this is depressing: Katie Holmes and new boyfriend Emilio Vitolo are facing an onslaught of online abuse, after news broke that Vitolo was reportedly already engaged when they got together. Holmes and Vitolo have been snapped on a series of PDA-heavy dates over the past few weeks, but it recently emerged that Vitolo ended his relationship with fashion designer Rachel Emmons on the same day the first photos were published.
Speaking to the Daily Mail last week, a friend of Emmons said, "Up to this press coming out Rachel had no idea what was going on," adding, "He is a cheater, and this isn't a 'happy ending' story." The friend continued, "They had concrete wedding plans in the works…now she is just left with bad press and forced to move home." Which yes, is messy if true, but does not remotely justify online harassment.

Alas, the comments on Holmes' latest Instagram post, a video of what looks like a geyser, took a turn for the nasty when the news broke, with multiple commenters calling her a "homewrecker." Vitolo, meanwhile, is also receiving abuse on his most recent post, a call for justice for George Floyd he shared in June. A thought: Perhaps we shouldn't attack people we do not know regarding matters that do not concern us?
