Mayer & Simpson's Post-Grammy PDA
February 12, 2007 3:23am CST
If John Mayer and Jessica Simpson aren't dating, they sure act like they are. "She's a lovely woman, and I'm glad to be with her," is what he told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet—in Japanese. And later that night, around 9:15 p.m., Mayer was the third celeb to hit Sony's Grammy after-party at the Beverly Hills Hotel. He and a posse of a dozen men made a beeline for one of the four private outdoor cabanas. Mayer immediately sat down, started texting on his phone and made a brief phone call. About a half hour later, Simpson popped in. She and Mayer went deep in conversation, and Simpson made a sweet pouty face. And then it happened. I saw Mayer kiss Simpson tenderly on the cheek. They parted ways, and Simpson chatted with her sister, Ashlee. But few minutes later, she and Mayer were talking. This time, Mayer was stroking her back. Now, this certainly wasn't the place for one-on-one time. The lovebirds were soon joined by Simpson's dad, Joe, and then American Idol-er Chris Daughtry. Despite all the interruptions, Mayer kept at it, singing Terence Trent D'Arby's "Wishing Well" to Simpson. Let's consider this Mayer and Simpson's coming out, of sorts. It wasn't a red carpet appearance, but they're certainly not hiding their romance. Dozens—and I mean dozens—of people were watching. Celebrity photographer Kevin Mazur even got them to pose arm-in-arm for a few photos.
