A friend told the outlet the snaps were a shock and her friend reportedly had no idea he was a “cheater.” Emmons and Vitolo Jr. were engaged for 18 months and he never mentioned Holmes, the friend also shared.

“Up to this press coming out, Rachel had no idea what was going on,” one of Emmons’ friends explained.

“He is a cheater, and this isn’t a ‘happy ending’ story,” she added. “They had concrete wedding plans in the works … now she is just left with bad press and forced to move home.”

As previously reported, the “Batman Begins” star made numerous headlines over the years with reports that she was dating Jamie Foxx before the two reportedly split last year. Before that, she was married to Tom Cruise before the two divorced in 2012. They also share a daughter, Suri Cruise, 14.
