UPDATE: A photo showing Jessica Simpson and Billy Corgan out together in New York City on Friday has just surfaced.


We suppose this is one way to get over those feelings of melancholy and infinite sadness when it comes to trying to find the right man.

It seems Jessica Simpson, whose most recent relationship with quarterback Tony Romo experienced a bit of a fumble earlier this year, is now looking to make beautiful music with Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan.

What reportedly started off as a mere crush has turned into something a whole lot more.

"She has fallen hard and is smitten," a source tells E! News of Jessica, adding that both she and 42-year-old Billy consider themselves "officially dating."

Reps for both have yet to return calls for comments, but another source close to Jess says her inner circle is not exactly whistling a happy tune when it comes to this rumored hookup…

"He's just another in an endless string of Jessica's boyfriends," says the source. "They think he's too old for her. No one takes any of her boyfriends seriously anymore because she has had so many. They're sick of all of them being 'the one.' "


Let's sure hope this one sticks since there obviously won't be any pity party next time around.
