Katie Holmes recently parted ways with her stylist Jeanne Yang and the fashion line they started together, Holmes & Yang.
There was speculation that the break-up was a result of the two no longer getting along, but Katie spoke up about the issue to Elle UK, and the explanation is much more benign than people would like to think.
“I loved every minute of my time working on Holmes & Yang. I remain passionate about the design aesthetic we created, and am so happy with what Jeanne and I accomplished. However I am now concentrating on acting and motherhood, which did not leave the label the time and attention it deserved. I’m really thrilled that the final showcase for Holmes & Yang is in Elle — I had a blast at my shoot for the magazine. It is fantastic to feel like it’s ending on a high.”
Late promo is better than no promo, we suppose!
Despite Katie's diplomatic words, rumors of a rift will probably persist. A source said:
“They have different approaches to absolutely everything: how to run the company, how to promote it and how to handle the press. The conflict isn’t about any one thing, it’s sort of about everything.”
Oh, well, not every partnership can last forever, and that's okay.
See you on the silver screen, Katie!
