A report on EOnline says Billy Corgan, frontman of 90s alternarock band Smashing Pumpkins, is dating reality show and pop music star Jessica Simpson.
Simpson’s had a bit of a rough year- she experienced a very public breakup with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo on the eve of her 29th birthday and Barbie and Ken themed party in July. In September, Simpson’s beloved dog Daisy was snatched from her home by a coyote and never recovered. And press rode her honky-tonk badonkadonkdonk all year for having gained a few pounds.
Simpson has shouted out Corgan, 42, on Twitter from time to time- and though a source says Jessica has “fallen hard and is smitten,” friends are skeptical the fling will last:
“He’s just another in an endless string of Jessica’s boyfriends,” says the source. “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.’ “
The source also says the pair consider themselves to be “officially dating.” In other news, Billy Corgan got totally old!
