Like the rumor that Jessica Simpson was after James Blunt (which may have been true, but would you choose Simpson over Petra Nemcova?), I doubt that much will come of this, but People is reporting that Jessica Simpson and much more talented singer John Mayer are an item:
“She’s tiptoeing back into the dating world,” a source tells PEOPLE. “It’s the first stage. She’s never been happier.”
Mayer, 28, began a co-headlining tour with Sheryl Crow on Aug. 24, and Simpson, 26, is expected to attend his concert in Jones Beach, N.Y., on Wednesday night.
Simpson is currently in New York promoting her new album, A Public Affair, which was released Tuesday Ã¢â‚¬â€œ although a bruised vocal cord has quashed any planned performances. Similarly, Mayer had to cancel his Hartford, Conn., appearance with Crow on Saturday due to laryngitis, the Associated Press reported.
The two singers have known each other for several years and last year both attended Clive Davis’s pre-Grammys party in Beverly Hills.
So Jessica Simpson and John Mayer are supposedly dating now, and they’re both suffering from laryngitis at the same time. Aww.
It doesn’t matter how hot she is, Jessica is not the type of girl that keeps a busy single guy interested. She’s not mysterious enough, and seems like she would be a royal drag after a couple months. We doubt this will last.
Despite coming down with a case of laryngitis so bad she has to communicate in writing, Jessica Simpson appeared on MTV’s Total Request Live yesterday. Teeny boppers everywhere turned up the volume and sat close to the TV to catch her every brayed word.
Here are Simpson’s horrendous fashion choices as she arrives and leaves the MTV studios yesterday. Thankfully she wore a different outfit during the show, but it wasn’t much better. It was a flouncy shirt, vest and shorts combo.
