Who is he?!
The celebrities in the slideshow below were all spotted with unidentified "mystery men" after their divorces. The tabloids were quick to call out rebound relationships, but were the hunky strangers really their new love interests? Click through to find out.
A little less than a <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/29/tom-cruise-katie-holmes-divorce_n_1638050.html" target="_hplink">month after filing to divorce Tom Cruise</a>, Katie Holmes was <a href="http://www.okmagazine.com/photos/hot-shots/katie-holmes-has-dinner-date-mystery-man-nyc" target="_hplink">spotted grabbing dinner in New York City</a> with a mysterious male companion. Dating rumors ensued, but <em>People</em> did some detective work and discovered that <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20616218,00.html" target="_hplink">Holmes' dinner date was actually her lawyer, Jonathan Wolfe,</a> who was accompanied by his wife, Renee.
After <a href="http://www.tmz.com/2011/07/01/scarlett-johansson-ryan-reynolds-divorce-final-married-2-years-green-lantern-star-split-prenup-property-earnings/" target="_hplink">Scarlett Johansson's split from Ryan Reynolds</a> was finalized in 2011, the actress was photographed lounging on a <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/07/10/scarlett-johansson-enjoys-italian-sun-aboard-yacht_n_1661542.html" target="_hplink">yacht with a bronzed, buff -- and super touchy-feely -- mystery man</a>. "The man was seen gently caressing the blond beauty's stomach and shielding her face from the blazing sun," <a href="http://www.gossipcop.com/scarlett-johansson-mystery-man-yacht-boat-july-2012-pictures-photos-boyfriend/" target="_hplink">the <em>New York Daily News</em> wrote at the time. </a> So who was the mystery man? Sources later <a href="http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/scarlett-johansson-showers-in-bikini-with-shirtless-bodyguard-2012117" target="_hplink">identified him as ScarJo's long-time bodyguard</a>, not a secret beau.
In the summer of 2006, Britney Spears was frequently spotted with a muscular mystery man the tabs quickly deemed her <a href="http://www.usatoday.com/life/people/2006-06-09-spears-manny_x.htm" target="_hplink">"sexy new stand-in husband"</a> The guy even <a href="http://www.hollywoodgrind.com/meet-britney-spears-mystery-man/" target="_hplink">pushed a stroller for the mom of two</a>... which made sense because he was actually the <a href="http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/13228977/ns/today-entertainment/t/britney-spears-manny-navy-man/#.UDK-MxrLyRl" target="_hplink">popstar's "manny"/bodyguard, Perry Taylor</a> -- not exactly the post-K-Fed rebound boyfriend he was made out to be.
In the same month that she <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/17/demi-moore-divorcing-ashton-kutcher_n_1100165.html" target="_hplink">announced her plans to divorce Ashton Kutcher</a>, Demi Moore was seen dining with a "mystery man" at the swanky Sunset Tower Hotel in Hollywood. But, according to one source, the meet-up "didn't look like a romantic date," a comment that made perfect sense when it was revealed that the man was <a href="http://hollywoodlife.com/2011/11/29/demi-moore-date-sunset-tower-eric-buterbaugh/" target="_hplink">actually the star's florist and longtime friend, Eric Buterbaugh</a>.
