Ashlee Simpson Seems to Have a New Boyfriend, And He’s the Son of Diana Ross
It looks as if Ashlee Simpson has found a new “baby love” to cuddle up with. The singer/actress/fashionista was recently spotted getting all love-y dove-y with Evan Ross, the son of iconic Motown songstress Diana Ross.
Rumors began to swirl when Simpson, 28, and Ross, 24, were spotted leaving Teddy’s nightclub in Hollywood (via Daily Mail) — of course, paps were on-hand to catch their every move. The duo were apparently out partying on Monday, July 1, and the paparazzi snapped pics of them as they were exiting the L.A. hot spot hand-in-hand.
Before Simpson and Ross headed over to Teddy’s in Hollywood, they were seen leaving Simpson’s hotel room at the Sunset Marquis. Simpson was wearing a floral-printed, two-piece ensemble, while Ross looked vamp-y in a long, flowing, black coat and combat boots.
After they left the club, Simpson was looking a bit tipsy but totally smitten, and for good reason. According to the Daily Mail, Ross was quite the gentleman on their big night out — he opened the car door for his date, and kept Simpson close to his side as they walked through the sea of photographers clutching hands. Diana raised that boy right!
Evan is the youngest of Diana Ross’s five children and tends to keep a lower profile, although he did have a short-lived role on the revamped version of ‘90210’ as Charlie Shelby. He was born to the Supremes singer and her third husband, Norwegian shipping tycoon, Arnie Naess. Naess tragically died in a climbing accident in 2004, post-divorce from Diana Ross.
Simpson used to be married to Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz, with whom she has one son, Bronx.
We’re happy Ash has found a new guy that seems to make her happy, but her new relationship isn’t the only thing she has to celebrate — she’s also a new aunt, as her sis Jessica just gave birth to a son, Ace Knute!
