Jessica Simpson Dating Another Football Player
Jessica Simpson is dating ex-San Francisco 49ers tight end Eric Johnson.
TMZ reports Simpson, 29, and Johnson, 30, began dating back in May and have been keeping a low profile until recently. A source close to the couple said that the new couple is “very happy.”
Simpson, who starred in The Dukes of Hazzard, dated dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and singer John Mayer after her split from husband Nick Lachey in 2006.
Johnson was drafted by the 49ers in the seventh round of the 2001 NFL draft after attending Yale University. He had his best year in 2004, when he led the team in receiving with 82 catches for 825 yards and two touchdowns.
Simpson is best known for the MTV reality show Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, which she starred on with former husband Lachey.
