It seems Jess was more than happy to focus all her attention on her supposed former flame...
Simpson watched her rumored ex-lover perform at the Laugh Factory Tuesday, and she was all smiles.
"She came in to see [Dane] with two girls and two guys," says an eyewitness. "They snuck her into the back door right before the show began, and she sat at a table on the floor level."
Our spy says Simpson, dressed in a Rolling Stones T-shirt with jeans and heels, looked very natural and relaxed as she laughed, dined on cheese pizza and drank Stella Artois beer.
Was the admiration mutual between Jess and Dane? It seems like Simpson has been the media's mini Jennifer Aniston lately, always being portrayed as the lonesome older sis after splitting with Tony Romo.
Well, we hear Dane was happy to have old flame Jess there and even sent over a round of drinks to her table. He then invited her backstage after the show, natch.
"After the first round of drinks, the waitress went over and said, 'This round is on Dane,'" dishes our source. "Jessica seemed so excited. Once the show ended, Simpson was taken upstairs to the VIP area where she and Dane flirted and had another round of beers.
"The staff left, but Jessica, Dane and her four friends stayed in the VIP section after hours."
But not everyone had a great evening.
"Jessica didn't tip the waitress at all!" adds our sassy insider. "Dane paid for the first round of drinks and then the Laugh Factory comped the rest of the check...But she's still supposed to leave a tip, and she didn't leave anything."
Maybe she was so focused on Dane she simply forgot, right?
