RadarOnline.com exclusively reported that the pair were seen locking lips at the star-studded opening of La Scala Boutique in Harlem just two days earlier.
“They were in the corner making out,” the source said of the unlikely couple. “They were all over each other.”
Although she was on the guest list, Jacqueline never showed up at the Spin Crowd finale party.
“It caused some tension, but Ashley really wanted to see him and went to the party anyway. She actually avoided the red carpet walk to be less conspicuous and went in a back door.
“When Jonathan was asked about their relationship, he mimicked a zipper across his mouth and smiled.”
