John Mayer thinks Jessica Simpson is “desperate to stay in the spotlight”
First, Jessica Simpson’s camp overplayed her relationship with John Mayer, and then she underplayed it on The View, but now a source close to John has claimed that he finished with her between the two events.
The source told Us Weekly: “The thing between Jessica and John was a 2 that her camp spun into an 11.”
The source went on to suggest that John has lost respect for his friend Jessica after the publicity machine went into overdrive: “now he will stay away from her. He thinks it’s desperate. An attempt for her to stay in the spotlight.”
“It’s very clear to John who was pushing this story. And it’s also very clear to him that Jessica is under a lot of pressure to sell an album.”
Needless to say, team Simpson have pushed the blame onto Mayer, claiming: “She met a guy who was scared away by all the attention.”
