Katie Holmes and her new boyfriend Emilio Vitolo Jr. have been nearly inseparable in recent weeks.
But one person seems particularly unhappy with their new relationship: Emilio's mother Lourdes.
Sources close to the family say she was furious after the chef ended his previous engagement last month and moved on with the Batman Begins star, Page Six reports.
Not a fan: Katie Holmes' new relationship with chef Emilio Vitolo Jr. has left his mother upset after he dumped his fiancée, Page Six reported on Saturday; shown together on Thursday
DailyMail.com confirmed exclusively on September 10 that Emilio, 33, broke off his previous engagement with his live-in fiancée Rachel Emmons, 24, via text when handsy photos of him and Holmes, 41, were first published.
The handbag designer, who had been engaged to the restaurateur for 18 months, was left shocked and scrambling and had to move back home.
'[Lourdes] thinks she brought him up better than that,' an insider said. 'She didn’t like how [Emilio] handled this at all.'

'He and his fiancée were taking it slow, and it wasn’t working out,' the source said.
According to them, someone like Katie is more his speed.
'He likes older women,' they continued. 'He dated an older anchor at Fox, and others, so he has a history with older women.'
The same insider claimed that neither Katie nor Emilio have particularly sophisticated tastes, suggesting they could be a fit for each other.
'So it could work out. They’re not, like, discussing books, or art or anything,' they added.
Representatives for Katie and Emilio's family couldn't be reached for comment.

The alleged disapproval from Emilio's mother doesn't seem to have dulled the new couple's affection at all.
'Emilio and Katie act like young teens in love when they are together,' a source to Us Weekly on Sunday.
'Emilio lights up when she enters his restaurant and they kiss and hug like they haven’t seen each other in forever, but really they see each other almost every day.'
