A celebrity gossip magazine alleges that Jessica Simpson created the dating monster that is John Mayer. Must have been a slow week over at OK! HQ.
Before he met Jessica, John Mayer was "just another musician," according to friends of Simpson, who are delusional and say she put him on the map.
While it is possible that Jessica helped catapult John onto the celebrity dating map in a sense, he was a well-established figure in that realm as well.
The name Jennifer Love Hewitt ring a bell, anyone? Thought so. In any case, Jessica's friends are on the offensive after John betrayed her this month ...
How these two didn't last is beyond us.
In any case, the magazine says it was Jessica’s relationship with John - who recently humiliated her by revealing intimate details about their sex life - that propelled his ascent up the dating food chain after the couple split in 2006.
“It was only after she gave her seal of approval that A-listers like Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz started dating him,” the source says. “Before that he was a successful musician, no doubt, but Jess ushered him into the world of celebrity dating.”
“A lot of Jess’s friends joke that she created a monster,” a source tells OK!, adding: “She put John on the map and made him a tabloid sensation.”
There's no way those quotes are real, but hey, it's a good celebrity gossip debate - did Jessica raise John's dating profile? Or was he slumming it?
