The truth is — there’s absolutely nothing going on between Alex Rodriguez and Katie Holmes. The former baseball star may have been exiting Katie’s apartment building on June 13, but the visit had nothing to do with her. “She doesn’t know him,” a rep for the actress told E! News. The reasons behind A-Rod’s visit to that particular building remains unclear, but, according to Katie’s rep, it was not to visit the 42-year-old.
However, there may be some exaggeration in the statement, as there’s actually photo evidence that Katie and Alex do know each other. Back in 2010, they were even photographed together at a Super Bowl party in Miami Beach. The two were joined by their then-partners, Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, in the photo. Alex and Katie are posed next to each other, with Tom and Cameron on the ends. Of course, this was likely nothing more than a celebrity photo opp at a high profile event, but it’s clear the two have, indeed, met before.
Considering Alex and Katie are both newly single, fans were quick to wonder if something was going on between them after the photos of him at her building surfaced. Alex’s engagement to Jennifer Lopez ended in April, while Katie split from Emilio Vitolo Jr. in May, after several months of hot-and-heavy dating. Katie and Emilio appear to be on good terms, as she publicly congratulated him for a film premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival this month. Meanwhile, J.Lo wasted no time moving on from A-Rod, as she got back together with another ex, Ben Affleck, after the breakup.
