John Mayer may be a big turkey, but he didn’t dine on any with Jessica Simpson last week.

THG NOTE: That may well have been the worst intro in history, but that doesn’t make it untrue.

Despite reports to the contrary, The Hollywood Gossip has learned that the loser singer ended up spending Thanksgiving in the Big Apple, and rumors of his holiday vacation with Jessica Simpson were just that. Rumors.

As you know (especially if you’re Lindsay Lohan), Rumers follow everywhere you go. In the case of Jessica and John, speculation was sparked when the two were spotted together at LAX on their way out of town.

Mayer and Simpson have recently grabbed the spotlight again after they were spotted on a date together in Malibu, California, on November 12. But that didn’t lead to holiday plans. Mayer’s rep laughed off the idea that the singer was making plans to go to Texas for Turkey Day.

“A press release was issued several weeks ago stating that after the American Music Awards on Tuesday, November 21, John would be flying to New York for his third consecutive Thanksgiving performance on The Late Show with David Letterman.”

“This has become one of Mayer’s favorite new holiday traditions. He has been on the phone with Paul [Shaffer]. Collaborating on the arrangement since he was in Japan several weeks ago on tour with Sheryl Crow and will be performing a song from his platinum-selling album Continuum that he has not performed on any other TV appearance to date. Mayer will then spend Thanksgiving with his family in Connecticut following the appearance.”

Thanks for the clarification, John Mayer rep. Your job must eat it. Anyway, we hope the “musician” had a nice time last week. In other news, here are some celebrities who, like Mayer and Simpson, DID NOT spend Thanksgiving together:
