Jessica and John Making it Work

Jessica Simpson and John Mayer have been playing the denial game. She even fired her publicist after US and People cover stories talked about them being an item, but now it's looking like the two really are dating (again?). They apparently had a not so secret rendezvous at the Four Seasons, and the two were spotted having a flirtatious lunch together in Malibu at Paradise Cove Beach Café last week. He must really like her since he is about to be followed everywhere. US Weekly reports:

“She didn’t eat much,” a witness says. “She drank double vodka cranberries. When they got up, Jessica was rubbing his back. You could definitely tell they were on a date.” Mayer left a $40 tip on the $100 bill.

“She’s taking her time with it,” a Simpson pal says.

Adds a Mayer source, “It’s a flirtation. I wouldn’t call it full-on dating, but there is a fondness. He doesn’t like the attention, but he likes her. He wants to avoid the public scrutiny of last time.”

We bet John will update his blog soon to let us know how he feels about being caught with Jessica. We wish him the best of luck since he knows how hard it will be to date such a tabloid favorite. As for Jess, we are hoping she finds love again since it must be hard to see Nick so happy. Of course all this could be just Pimp Daddy Simpson's plan to distract us from the fact that it's the anniversary of her split from Nick.

He looks miserable in that picture...She looks like a young school girl in that pic so happy that she finally got out to go on her very 1st date ( Papa Joe must have been in a good mood that day.. And for JOhn Mayer he looks as if someone just ripped his stomach out.. I don't like these two together cuz I love JOhn Mayer but, now I cannot stand him...

Oh and ladylove, you gave me a funny image in my head of Pimp Daddy running after Jessica & John taking pictures.

This baffles me. I can't see them having anything in common.

who cares? as long as they enjoy spending time together, as friends or as a couple. it doesn't really matter. they are normal people too, and deserve something good in life. I adore JM and think he is a funny, talented and down to earth honest guy. I have never really paid much attention to her, but she's somehow cute, and I'm sure it's not easy to live your life with all the cameras and shit.

These two are both gross individually and paired up. Great guitar player he is though.

I completely disapprove. John needs to give up the grass. It's affecting his good sense.

Sounds like a friends with benefits for the publicity situation. What in the world could Pappa Pervert offer JM? Fame and fortune? He's done so well for his own skanks. Jessica's best publicity would be to stay home.

ladylove, I feel the same way. I think she is honestly doing this for publicity. For one thing, jon is so not hot, I think they are friends, but she is getting good press as in she is hanging out with a creative, unsuperficial other male star, and he is respected in the music world. I really do not see these 2 as anything more then publicity for Jess, and at the end of the day, no guy is turning down Jessica, let your boyfiends tell you what you want to hear , but all guys would love 1 night with her.

She's such a bimbo! I don't like her at all. No-talent.

She's bad news for these celebrity men. Because of her, I can't stomach Maroon 5 anymore, and while I wasn't a big fan of Mayer's, I at least tolerated him. Now, I can't stand him anymore. Talk about a total sellout...all for a piece of her fake tail.

I USED to think John Mayer was a smart, cool guy. What is he doing with that bimbo? It's even worse of a mismatch than Ben Affleck and J. Lo.

I was REALLY hoping this whole thing was a rumor. I am a huge fan of John Mayer's music. He's such a witty, creative, intelligent and talented individual and I just cannot for the life of me understand why he'd be hanging around with a fake, moronic, overproduced person like Jessica Simpson. He is not the most gorgeous animal in the world but he does have a thing for hot women. If anything I hope it's just a fling and he's getting what he can get out of it, but I just thought he had more requirements (brains over beauty).

I think somebody got tired of Nick stealing her thunder. It's really sad, because most people can see through the BS that this is.She's all about status, and for me, how you start a relationship, is key as well. This whole thing started off terribly, and if she thinks that this guy is going to be the "one", forget it. It wasn't just the typical, denial that most give, it was uncleverly calculated, and based on them making her out to be bigger than she is. And then when it blew up in her face, Mayer ran from the whole thing, and MADE her look desperate.Just because her dad's not running off at the mouth about it, doesn't mean that he's not involved. Who else do you think took these pictures of them?

Whatever. That's weird. I wish Nick and Jess would just come to their senses and get back together. That's all I want for Christmas this year. ~Bonnie~

John Mayer gets around. He was previously linked to Heidi Klum and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
