Has Billy Corgan dumped Jessica Simpson?

After dating for several months, it seems that Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan couldn’t stand the heat and has dumped Jessica Simpson. Sources close to the unlikely pair say Billy disliked the constant media scrutiny he has attracted since hooking up with the unlucky-in-love singer/actress.

“Dating Jessica publicly can be intense,” reports one insider. “Billy maintains a quiet, private music-focused life and the taste of publicity he got while being with Jessica was an eye-opener.”

However, some other sources claim Jessica and Billy were never actually dated and that theirs is merely a working relationship. “Jessica loved spending so much time in and out of the studio with Billy,” tells one of Jess’ pals. “She’s in awe of his musical prowess and it adds to her feelings for him, but they are not dating.”

The friend continues, “Billy likes Jessica, but he will work to keep their relationship as it is and focus on the music. They are not getting serious, but Jessica has had so much fun with him.”
