In recent celebrity news and gossip, pop singer Jessica Simpson is no longer unattached. She has been dating former NFL tight end Eric Johnson since May, according to website TMZ. Johnson played for the San Francisco 49-ers and the New Orleans Saints, whom he played for when he retired in 2008. The 30-year-old was married to Keri Johnson, but filed for divorce early in 2010.
Simpson has been single since Tony Romo broke up with her last year on her 29th birthday. Other celebrity gossip news linked her romantically with former Smashing Pumpkin Billy Corgan, with whom she worked in the recording studio for a time, though neither admitted to a romantic relationship.
Simpson’s unique celebrity fashion style has led her to turn part-time fashion accessories designer in recent years, designing a collection of sexy high heeled shoes that have become very popular.
