Katie Holmes may have found herself under pressure following her shock split from Tom Cruise, but it seems as if she's found the perfect (hunky) shoulder to cry on...
Katie Holmes has, according to sources at Heat magazine, been relying heavily on 'American Reunion' actor Chris Klein following her speedy divorce from Hollywood husband Tom Cruise.
Klein and Holmes were famously in love, dating for five years before announcing their engagement to the press. And, despite calling off wedding plans, the pair remained excellent friends - even after Katie began dating Tom Cruise.
Klein recently spoke to the Daily Beast about his amicable split from Katie, suggesting that the relationship simply came to a natural end due to work commitments:
“Young Hollywood was ending. [Holmes’s] huge television show was ending. Life was changing and that adventure ended. It was a transitional period."
And now it seems as if Katie has called upon her "solid friend" and ex-lover for support during this difficult period in her life.
An insider explained to Heat that Chris Klein has been Katie Holmes' rock:
"Chris has been a huge source of support. They've stayed on good terms since they broke up and he's one of Katie's few really solid friends."
Even more tantalisingly, the source suggested that the friendship could soon become much more than that...
"It wouldn't surprise anyone if they became more than just friends."
