Everyone knows Jessica Simpson is busy taking care of her newborn son, but what about sister Ashlee?

Mom to her own son, Bronx, 4, with ex-husband Pete Wentz, Ashlee split from her Boardwalk Empire boyfriend Vincent Piazza in November, and right after that she was spotted with a mystery guy in NYC.

Now Us Weekly is sharing photos of Ashlee with Evan Ross, the 24-year-old son of legend Diana Ross. Ashlee, 28, and Evan went to Teddy's at the Roosevelt Hotel late Monday night in Hollywood, then met up again for lunch the next day after they were spotted leaving a mutual friend's home.

But these two are apparently still in the friend zone. "Evan and Ashlee have been friends for a really long time, probably 10 years," a source told Us Weekly. "They know each other from the club scene and have tons of mutual friends."

A lot of good relationships start from friendship, but a girl's allowed to have male pals without them all being boyfriends. Sounds like she's just having fun, but it's interesting how many famous people and children of famous people are connected like this. There should be a chart of all the friendships/hookups out there. Get to work on it, Kevin Bacon!
