After weeks of dating rumors have circulated on celebrity gossip blogs, it appears Ashlee Simpson has made her romantic attachment to Evan Ross, Ms. Diana Ross’ son, official.

The two stepped out for a red carpet event and it wasn’t just Any Random Red Carpet You Bring a Platonic Friend To Tag Along With red carpet. It was for the launch of her older sister’s Jessica Simpson Fall 2013 Campaign, a real family affair, making this their first public outing together for the cameras.

Ashlee and Evan were first photographed together in early July, leaving Teddy’s nightclub at the Roosevelt Hotel. This is when the "are they, aren't they?" rumors began. The next day they were seen getting a bite to eat together in West Hollywood.

“Evan and Ashlee have been friends for a really long time, probably ten years," a source told Us. "They know each other from the club scene and have tons of mutual friends." 

“It helps that they were friends first,” a source added. “They have a long bond. They already know each other really well.”
