    For what it's worth, Simpson may have been tweeting about her new relationship back in May, musing on multiple occasions about love:

    • "This is the first day of my life. I'm glad I didn't die before I met you," Ashlee tweeted on May 17.
    • "The light of my life. I adore you : )" she wrote two days prior.
