Katie Holmes is reportedly pursuing a relationship with Robin Thicke; meanwhile, the singer’s ex may be planning to switch teams.
Sources have indicated that Robin and Katie are talking and flirting a lot lately, with plans to go on a date soon.
“She dropped him an email recently to see how he was, knowing he was going through divorce hell,” an insider told New Idea. “And he was so happy to hear from her.”
Katie Holmes reportedly plans to give Robin a chance as soon as he returns from his summer tour.
“They’ve arranged a date in New York after his tour ends this month,” the insider said. “Everyone’s encouraging this as they have so much in common and if anyone can get him over Paula, it’s Katie.”
Ironically, Robin Thicke and Katie Holmes first met through their spouses. Tom Cruise had some scenes with Paula Patton, Robin’s now-ex, in the movie Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.
Robin and Katie reportedly bonded over their young kids.
“Robin totally leaned on Katie,” the source said of their relationship. “As she was in the same boat with Suri, who was four at the time.”
“She was invaluable with her advice on looking after a new baby. They bonded over tips and music after he heard her sing to Suri.”
While Robin Thicke may have snagged Katie Holmes, sources say ex Paula Patton may be turning to women.
“Robin and Paula aren’t getting back together because Paula’s into girls,” an unidentified actress told Media Take Out.
“I don’t think Robin’s cheating made her give up on d**k either, she just likes women…. Actually, I think she may have just used that as an excuse to get out of her marriage,” continued the insider.
There was no verification of the rumor that Paula Patton is now pursuing women, and there could be doubts about the reports of Katie Holmes and Robin Thicke are dating as well. The source said they planned a date for New York, but Katie and daughter Suri just moved to Los Angeles.
