A Pitstop On The Information Super Highway

Underwood & Crawford supposedly split

March 28th, 2008 Posted in Celebrity Gossip

A shared love of side-swept bangs may not have been enough to save the romance of Carrie Underwood and Chace Crawford. Us reports the furtive flames have called it a day after several months of way under-the-radar coupledom.

The country belter, 25, and the “Gossip Girl” dreamboat were first spied looking cozy last October in New York, although the romance supposedly blossomed three months earlier, when they crossed paths at a Los Angeles hot spot.

A few PDA-filled sightings followed, including one from a night out in December, when they danced “suggestively” at a Manhattan club.

“They were high-stepping and cavorting … it wasn’t pretty,” an eyewitness grumbled to the New York Daily News. “After five minutes, they sat down, thankfully.”

Underwood joined Crawford and his family for Thanksgiving and Christmas, says Us, but he celebrated New Year’s solo, party-hopping with pals in Miami.

One of those buddies was JC Chasez, who spent Wednesday denying tabloid and Internet speculation that he had fallen under the spell of the actor’s irresistible baby blues.

“It’s stupid, really,” the former *NSYNC-er said during an interview with Arizona radio station Kiss-FM. “For the record, we’re both straight. We’re not dating.”

Not that they aren’t chummy.

“We are friends, absolutely,” continued Chasez. “The guy is a super nice guy and he’s a friend of mine.”

As for how the rumblings began, he figures it’s because they’ve been repeatedly snapped hanging out together in recent months.

“You know, the only time people would usually see us together is in some type of photograph,” he explained, “so they just assume that it’s like that.”

Besides, added the verbose crooner, “If I’m dating a girl and I’m standing next to another girl, I’m having an affair. So now, since there hasn’t been any of that smoke out there, if I’m hanging out with a guy, they’re going to make up a rumor.”

Chasez, who — good news, ladies — says he’s “actually single right now,” calls the kerfuffle “just stupid.”
