TAB: Katie Holmes Dad on “Mission” to Find Her New Husband

Truth rating: 1

By Michael Lewittes


“Katie’s Dad Plays Matchmaker,” reads a headline from OK!, which claims Katie Holmes father Martin is “leading the hunt to find his daughter a new husband!”

According a supposed “pal” of the actress, “Katie hates being single — and her dad knows it.”

The so-called “friend” says Martin, a lawyer who helped Holmes file for divorce from Tom Cruise over the summer, has “made it his mission to find her a new man.”

Holmes is allegedly “willing” to let her dad set her up on a blind date, explains the source, because it’s been “daunting” for her to “get back into the dating pool.”

Now, the tabloid says Martin is “quietly putting out feelers to his lawyer friends in Katie’s former hometown of Toledo, Ohio.”

The friend notes, “In Katie’s eyes, her dad can do no wrong, especially after the way he masterminded her escape from Tom.”

OK… so because Martin is a talented lawyer, Holmes also wants him to find her a new husband?

Attorneys and matchmakers don’t really have the same skill sets.

Meanwhile, Holmes is not at all focused on dating right now, as her number one priority remains her daughter, Suri, and their new life together in New York.

In any case, a source close to Holmes says there’s no truth to the mag’s matchmaker tale.

OK!, on the other hand, may want to look into getting set up with a fact-checker.
