Katie Holmes, 42, shops with daughter Suri Cruise, 15, in NYC… amid claims her romance with Emilio Vitolo Jr, 33, has ‘cooled down’
Katie Holmes had been smitten with beau Emilio Vitolo Jr since they were first linked in September.
But as reports have surfaced that the hot and heavy relationship has ‘cooled down,’ the 42-year-old Dawson’s Creek star seems to have been ramping up the time she spends with Suri Cruise.
On Sunday evening, the mommy-daughter duo were seen shopping around NYC as she continues to stay close to the 15-year-old she had with ex-husband Tom Cruise.

Katie stepped out in a business casual look as she paired a white blouse with a black denim pencil skirt from Levi’s.
She began the day in a pair of black and white striped kitten heels before slipping on Gucci loafers for shopping in the city.
The Batman Begins star wore her hair up in a messy bun and helped share the weight of their haul as she toted a few large bags.
And Suri kept it casual in flared blue jeans and sneakers with a black Sherpa lined jacket while carrying a Stoney Clover gift bag.

Though she had done an expert job at balancing both a relationship and being a mom to Suri — who reportedly approved of the Emilio’s Ballato chef — Katie is said to be recalibrating.
Signs that things were cooling off became apparent in recent weeks when Holmes had been spending less time in NYC on account of a new movie; she is starring in and producing The Watergate Girl which shoots in Connecticut.
‘Katie has a lot of big priorities in her life — she’s a single mom, her daughter always comes first and things were moving very fast,’ a source told Page Six.
It was added that though the pair weren’t officially broken up, they both had ‘a lot going on’ at the moment.

The couple first connected in the fall and at the time the chef was engaged to Rachel Emmons. He reportedly called off that relationship via text but it had been said that things between them had been rocky for a while.
It was also added that he had preferred older women, and he and Katie became attached at the hip before going Instagram official on her birthday in December.
But a month before he professed his love for her on social media, friends were said to be growing concerned the romance was moving too fast. Katie reportedly paid no mind to them.
‘She doesn’t care what people may say about rushing into the romance. In her mind, this is the real deal, they’re riding a beautiful wave together, and she’s already decided it’s got the potential to go all the way,’ an insider told Us Weekly.
The pair was last spotted out together on March 12 and Emilio was spotted flying solo on April 20.
