Contrary to reports circulating online that Mayer met up with Simpson at the restaurant, a source tells PEOPLE he was never there Saturday. Instead, Mayer showed up at Katsuya on Sunday and had a guys’ night out.
Mayer and his three buddies drank whiskey neat and enjoyed crispy rice, spicy tuna, edamame and yellowtail with jalapeno, according to the source.
“I don’t know where this rumor got started,” added a source close to Simpson. “John was not at Katsuya with Jess.”
Mayer, 31, and Simpson, 29, have been in contact via text message since her split from NFL star Tony Romo, but, “they haven’t met up,” according to a Mayer source. “They’re friendly but that’s it.”
At Simpson’s dinner on Saturday one thing seemed apparent: She wasn’t mourning her split from Romo. “Jessica looked like she was having a good time with her friends,” says an onlooker. “She was all smiles and didn’t look like Tony was on her mind at all.”
