Jessica Simpson may be enjoying the dating rounds, but her recent alleged hookup with Hurt Locker star Jeremy Renner was "just for publicity," a source tells

"Jeremy has actually been dating a New York-based blonde who isn't Jessica on and off for the past few months," the source revealed.

"She asked Jeremy when the story about him and Jessica came out and he said they were just friends and that it was just for publicity."

Renner and Simpson have been linked since awards season when they were spotted chatting at a cocktail party in early March. At the time, Renner downplayed their interaction.

Just a week after a New York paper spotted Renner and his actual gal pal kissing at Nobu Next Door, the Simpson rumors began again in earnest after they were allegedly spotted together a Washington D.C. hotel.
