New boyfriend for Simpson

New boyfriend for Simpson

Jessica Simpson started dating NFL football player Eric Johnson last month, it has been revealed.

Sources say they are smitten with each other, according to gossip website TMZ.

One said: “They are very happy.”

Johnson – who has previously played for the San Francisco 49ers and the New Orleans Saints – split from his wife earlier this year and filed for divorce in February.

Although she has been romantically linked to Smashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan, Simpson has not been in a serious relationship since ex-boyfriend Tony Romo dumped her on her 28th birthday last year.

Despite the way Romo – who also plays in the NFL - ended their romance, Simpson insists the pair are still friends.

She has said: "Tony is great, still a friend of mine. I still look at his cute butt in the outfit - uniform.

"What went wrong? You'd have to ask him that. He broke up with me on my birthday. We are still good friends."

The 29-year-old blonde beauty was previously married to singer Nick Lachey and dated John Mayer for nine months.
