Jessica Simpson Is Dating Billy Corgan?!
It’s official, the Simpson ladies like rocker dudes. But while nobody really batted a surgically-enhanced eyelash at Ashlee and Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy, people are seriously stumped by Jessica’s new beau: Smashing Pumpkins weirdo frontman Billy Corgan.
According to E! Online, a source claims that “She has fallen hard and is smitten,” and that the 29-year-old singer and Corgan, 42, are “officially dating.” A representative for Jessica wouldn’t confirm the report, but the two have recently been spotted together in New York City. And maybe Jessica’s smart for looking for a different type of man; her last major boyfriend, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, dumped her on the night before her birthday.
Another source close to Jessica says that her close pals are concerned that the age gap is too great, and the couple won’t last. “He’s just another in an endless string of Jessica’s boyfriends,” the source said. ”They think he’s too old for her. No one takes any of her boyfriends seriously anymore because she has had so many. They’re sick of all of them being ‘the one.’ ”
Yowza! I understand that it can be annoying when a friend constantly thinks they’re in love, but I want to give Jessica the benefit of the doubt. Maybe she’s finally figured out that you have to go older if you want a man with an ounce of maturity!
