Is Ashlee Simpson dating Diana Ross’ son Evan? Reports indicate that the single mom may be getting “cozy” with the younger hottie.
Ashlee Simpson has been spotted out and about with Evan Ross in recent weeks, and the 28-year-old star is believed to be more than friends with Ross, 24.
Simpson divorced Pete Wentz in 2011, and the former pair have a son, Bronx, 4.
Us Magazine reports that Ashlee Simpson and Diana Ross’ son were seen Monday night at club Teddy’s at the Roosevelt Hotel, saying that the duo were not only seen out Monday, but again on Tuesday in L.A.:
“Ross, 24, similarly kept casual for the pair’s outing, wearing a black sweater over a loose white shirt and dark pants. According to X17 Online, Simpson giggled a bit as Ross helped her into the back of a chauffeured car as they sped away… The next day, on Tuesday, July 2, the duo grabbed lunch together in West Hollywood after they were spotted leaving a mutual friend’s home that morning.”
But the mag also says Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross are longtime pals and not necessarily dating, quoting a pal:
“Evan and Ashlee have been friends for a really long time, probably ten years… They know each other from the club scene and have tons of mutual friends.”
Us adds that Ashlee has been a free woman since she and ex Vincent Piazza split — but on good terms:
“There was no bad blood and no third party involved… It was honestly just a long distance relationship and it became too hard to make it work.”
“I feel like we both realize that we’re parents and we’re in it for our kid. That’s made it really easy… I feel like, as a mom, she’s awesome. She’s an awesome mom and we get along really well when it comes to our kid now.”
In addition to Ashlee Simpson, Diana Ross’ son Evan has been linked to other famous hotties, including Hayden Panettiere and Lindsay Lohan.
