Jessica Simpson is engaged to former NFL player Eric Johnson. The pair began dating back in May, when Johnson was still married and in the process of getting a divorce form his wife.
Simpson’s rep confirmed the news to JustJared.com, “We’re thrilled to confirm that it’s true! They are engaged.”
In his short lived NFL career, Johnson played five seasons with the San Francisco 49ers and was released by the New Orleans Saints in 2008.
Johnson’s and Simpson’s relationship has apparently caused a rift between Simpson and her close friend and hair stylist Kevin Paves. Paves is rumored to not like Johnson and thinks he is dating Simpson for fame. Johnson was supposed to start business school at the prestigious Wharton School but dropped out to stay close to Simpson.
The couple’s engagement comes just one week after Simpson’s ex-husband Nick Lachey proposed to his longtime girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo.
This is not Simpson’s first stint as a jersey chaser. Simpson had a two-year relationship with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo before he broke up with her on her 30th birthday.
Congrats to Eric and Jess! Keep chasing ;)
The Dallas Cowboys forgot to renew the dallascowboys.com domain name. The team’s website went down on Sunday night just after the Cowboys suffered a 45-7 loss to the Green Bay packers.
The Cowboys, who were a Superbowl favorite at the start of the season, are currently 1-7 and fired head coach Wade Phillips on Monday. During football season, dallascowboys.com gets more than 1 million visitors a month, that is second among football sites only to NFL.com. But on Sunday, visitors could not visit the team’s site. Instead internet browsers were greeted with a landing page indicating the address was available for purchase from Network Solutions LLC.
While the issue was resolved and the site is back up, it just added more fuel to this season’s disastrous fire.
Happy Monday jersey chasers! Hope you had a good weekend, here are some stories you may have missed.. xoxo & keep chasing

Mediatakeout.com reported LeBron James was dating Kim Kardashian, but he quickly took to his Twitter to deny the rumor: “MTO is the most disgusting site in the world! All they do is try to ruin people lives and talk bad upon them.”
LeBron was quick to defend his newly engaged fiance and baby mama Savannah Brinson with whom he has been with since high school. Just like week, Kardashian was linked back with Miles Austin. Kardashian was allegedly in attendance to cheer on Austin as the Dallas Cowboys took on the Jacksonville Jaguars.
