Are Justin Theroux and Katie Holmes Dating?

The world mourned when Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston announced their separation. The duo, who married in 2015, had spent years dating before tying the knot, and fans really though they were built to last. It didn’t work out that way, though. They announced the end of their relationship in 2017, and while they remain friends, it’s clear both are moving on. Rumors have been swirling for months that Aniston is rekindling her love affair with her first husband, Brad Pitt. Now, it’s rumored that Theroux is dating Katie Holmes. So, are the rumors true?

How did the rumors start?

Rumors of a Holmes/Theroux romance began back in October 2019 when Woman’s Day quoted an anonymous source who suggested the pair were spotted out together in a New York City restaurant. The following month, the same publication reported that things were getting more serious. More recently, the magazine once again ran a story regarding the potential romance, claiming Holmes had introduced her new beau to her daughter, Suri.

Here’s the issue; there is no photographic evidence to back up the claims. In fact, it doesn’t even seem like Theroux and Holmes have ever been in the same room together, let alone having romantic one-on-one conversations. Theroux, however, has been spotted on the town with a mystery woman, who most assuredly is not Holmes.

Holmes’ rep insists she doesn’t even know Theroux

While several publications have decided to run with the rumors that Holmes and Theroux are an item, it doesn’t seem to be true. In fact, Gossip Cop has reported that Holmes’ rep insists she doesn’t even know Theroux. The only commonality the rumored duo have is geography. Holmes and Theroux both reside in New York City, along with 8.6 million other people. Beyond that, though, they don’t appear to even run in the same social circle.

Theroux moved back to New York following his split from Aniston. It has been rumored that the pair ended their marriage because of Theroux’s desire to live in New York and Aniston’s desire to remain on the West Coast. Since the end off their union, Theroux has been spotted out and about in New York’s art scene often, but Holmes has never been pictured with him.

Holmes is known for keeping her relationships low key

Even if Holmes and Theroux are seeing each other, which is far from confirmed, fans probably wouldn’t be clued in for some time. In the years since her famous divorce, Holmes has kept her romantic relationships extremely private. In fact, it took years for Holmes to acknowledge her romance with Jamie Foxx.

Holmes and Foxx reportedly began dating back in 2013, shortly after Holmes’ divorce from Tom Cruise was finalized. The pair didn’t acknowledge the relationship until 2017 when they were photographed holding hands. They didn’t attend a public event together until 2018. Rumor has it the romance was kept quiet due to a clause in Holmes’ divorce agreement. They split in 2019.
