As she battles controversy over her latest single, “A Public Affair,” Jessica Simpson took the time to shoot down other rumors, as well.

Appearing on metrosexual Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, Simpson slammed reports she is dating Jared Leto, insisting the pair just happened to run into each other during a night out on the town. Those crazy gossip rags too it from there.

When Seacrest asked her if she was dating Cameron Diaz’s ex-boyfriend she shot back, “Don’t ask me about that! It was just a night out!”

Seacrest replied, “So you guys were at the same place at the same time?”

And Simpson said: “We were, isn’t that a coincidence? We said ‘Hi’ and gave each other a hug and somehow it became this whole huge story. He’s a friend.”

A friend who would probably love to tap that hot body.

In other news, the singer was scheduled to shoot the music video for her new single in Los Angeles yesterday. In it, Seacrest will appear as a limo driver taking Simpson and pals, including Eva Longoria, to a rink to roller skate. Makes perfect sense to us.
