and according to her good friend Nancy O'Dell, they're officially coupled up. Loved her from 1st time I met her & now she's dating a Clemson fella, Charlie Whitehurst = awesome! " Jewel has a thing for jocks -- she used to be married to pro rodeo cowboy Ty Murray ... Now, she's hooked up with Whitehurst -- who's considered a Top 5 QB in the NFL ... Not the rote "irreconcilable differences," though that shouldn't be totally cast aside just yet since it's a legal answer.
Looks like Jewel has met someone who is meant for her! News can confirm the singer has been dating the Colts' backup quarterback, Charlie Whitehurst, "for a while."A source exclusively tells us, "They are boyfriend and girlfriend, and its official. Jewel announced their divorce in July 2014, writing in a blog post at the time, "My husband, friend and partner of 16 years and I have decided to get a divorce.Good news for the man they call Clipboard Jesus ...NFL quarterback Charlie Whitehurst just scored himself a HUGE celebrity girlfriend ... The Indianapolis Colts QB -- and former Clemson star -- hit up the national championship game Monday night with the singer by his side ...Who better than each other to bear witness to the heart ache of redefining our family?And who better as ally, while we learn to redraw ourselves in whatever new shape we find as separate people who are still striving to be the best versions of ourselves- as humans and as parents."As for the reason for their split?
