Ashlee's band romance
13:30 18 March 2005
Ashlee Simpson is reportedly enjoying a new romance with a bandmate.
The pretty singer, who has recently been linked to Lindsay Lohan's ex, Wilmer Valderrama, was spotted canoodling with the handsome man, who plays in her backing band, at New York's Marquee bar.
A source told America's New York Post newspaper: "They've been dating for about two weeks and they seem smitten with each other."
Last year, Ashlee, who stars in MTV's 'The Ashlee Simpson Show', split from long-term lover Ryan Cabrera.
The 20-year-old brunette ended the relationship with singer Ryan because of their conflicting work schedules.
A source revealed at the time: "They are both so busy with their careers that they didn't have any time to see each other."
Ryan - whose manager is Ashlee's father, Joe - was often seen in the hit reality TV show with Ashlee, whose debut album 'Autobiography' went straight to number one in the US charts.
Ashlee's older sister, Jessica, is happily married to singer Nick Lachey, with whom she co-stars in the reality show 'Newlyweds'.
