Well, it sure beats the rumor that she was dating smarmy comic Dane Cook. According to articles published this week in People magazine and Us Weekly, Jessica Simpson is having a not-so-public affair with singer/songwriter/ersatz bluesman John Mayer.
A story in Us Weekly claims that Simpson admitted the relationship to the magazine but insisted that she wanted to "keep it private." That didn't stop People, however, from making it their cover story this week, reporting that the couple's been together for three months and that Jessica is telling friends, "I'm in love!"
John Mayer's camp, however, is downplaying any rumors of a full-fleged romance. A post on Mayer's official website yesterday (August 31) featured a link to the Public Enemy song "Don't Believe the Hype," which ironically generated so much hype among fans that it caused the site to crash for several hours. And a "source" close to Mayer told Us Weekly: "They've only gotten together a handful of times over the last few weeks. But yes, they've made out."
Still, can it really be coincidence that both singers have been suffering from laryngitis this week?
