US reports say she's found love again

Katie Holmes has sparked rumours that she’s dating again after she was spotted being walked back to her New York apartment with a mystery man.

Katie, 34, who split from actor Tom Cruise, 50, after six years in June, 

‘They were saying a long, long goodnight, talking and looking pretty romantic in the lobby around 2am,’ A source tells the New York Daily News.

‘He looked like a finance type, was wearing classic Cole Haan shoes and a navy pea coat. He walked her to the elevator and then she said “good night” and smiled.’

But Katie‘s people have already put the dampeners on the news, saying he’s just a gay friend.

Whatever the truth, it’s good to see her enjoying life again since the split.
