Katherine Webb tweets ‘don’t believe everything you hear’ after AJ McCarron breakup rumors

Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron and his girlfriend Katherine Webb reportedly broke up recently. The story first surfaced early Friday morning, with Webb’s mother supposedly telling a gossip website that the couple is no longer together. Shortly after word began circulating the internet, Webb sent out the following tweet.

Katherine-Webb-AJ-McCarronWebb could have squashed the rumor altogether and denied the breakup, but she did not. For that reason, I’m inclined to believe the split is legitimate.

So what could the tweet mean?

The report from Radar also said that Webb’s modeling gigs and television roles — like ABC’s “Splash” —  have forced her to travel a lot and strained her relationship with McCarron. She is said to have broken things off with AJ, not the other way around.

Perhaps McCarron was the one who ended things, or maybe Webb’s busy schedule had absolutely nothing to do with the alleged split. Again, it would have been much easier for Webb to pull a Caroline Wozniacki and put the speculation to rest. She did not, which leads us to believe that the details of the breakup could be the issue.

AJ McCarron and Katherine Webb reportedly break up

Katherine-Webb-AJ-McCarronThe most famous couple in college football has reportedly split. According to a report from Radar Online, Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron and former Miss Alabama USA Katherine Webb are no longer dating. Webb’s mother told the gossip site that Katherine broke things off with McCarron.

“Yes [they’ve broken up],” Leslie Webb reportedly told Radar. “Katherine’s just trying to stay real busy.”

The report went on to say that Webb’s new-found fame has led to a great deal of traveling for modeling gigs and shows like “Splash,” which had become a burden on her relationship with McCarron. Less than a week after we posted a full history of how the Hollywood-esque story of Webb and McCarron came together, this certainly comes as a shock to LBS.

One friend of McCarron’s would not rule out the couple getting back together.

“It might end up just being a break, but for now they’ve called it quits,” the friend told Radar.

But that’s not all. Katherine and AJ have also stopped following each other on Twitter, which means the breakup just has to be for real.

McCarron and Webb had been seen less and less together over the past several months, but we were left to assume that was because Alabama’s season had started back up and Webb was busy capitalizing off of her good looks. Apparently there was more to it than that. This is truly a sad day for the WAG community.

AJ McCarron and girlfriend Katherine Webb: the full history

Katherine Webb AJ McCcarron

AJ McCarron and Katherine Webb make up Alabama’s first couple, if such a thing exists. McCarron is a senior and in his third season as the starting quarterback of the Crimson Tide. He led the Tide to back-to-back titles in his two years as a starter and has gone 26-2 in 28 starts over three years. He’s thrown for 50 touchdowns and nine interceptions during his career. Webb’s stats in her field of modeling have been nearly as impressive. She was the 2012 Miss Alabama USA, a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition model, and she has appeared on TV.

Webb became famous after ABC announcer Brent Musburger gushed over her good looks during the national championship game between Alabama and Notre Dame in January, but her relationship with McCarron began a few months before that.

McCarron and Webb met over Twitter after a mutual friend mentioned the two in the same tweet late last year. Webb says McCarron began following her after that, and she followed him back. They exchanged phone numbers and began to develop a relationship through text messaging. That happened in late November.

“I had no idea who AJ was. But I thought he was cute,” Webb told AL.com about the first time they connected over Twitter.

This is the tweet that started it all:

Katherine Webb wants to have a pajama party with Kate Upton

Kate Upton Vanity Fair

Best pajama party ever?

Kate Upton is on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine, so Katherine Webb, girlfriend of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron, decided to congratulate her fellow SI swimsuit model on the accomplishment.

Katherine Webb and Katherine Upton … together in the same room … ordering room service … and having a pajama party? Oh, I dunno, possibly two of the most attractive Katherines of all time? If you’re having a bad day, just think of that visual for a moment and I promise you it will get better.

Oh, and Upton’s not the only one of the two to score a cover recently. Here’s Webb with McCarron’s mother DeeDee Bonner on the cover of Access:

AJ McCarron and Katherine Webb seem to be doing just fine

AJ McCarron Katherine Webb

There’s a common response couples have when their relationship is being questioned, and that is to share a photo on social media as if to say, “see, everything’s fine.” That seems to be what Katherine Webb was telling us.

The Alabama beauty queen shared the above photo on Instagram Friday of her at boyfriend A.J. McCarron’s graduation. McCarron is a redshirt senior, so he just completed his fourth academic year at Tuscaloosa, which explains his graduation.

As for the timing of the photo, there was a report last week saying that a model spent the night with McCarron while Webb was away. The insinuation from the gossip reports was that there would be problems between Webb and McCarron as a result of the story, but it looks like that’s not the case. Here’s to America’s favorite couple.

AJ McCarron spent night with model Margaret Wood, so gossip sites implied he cheated on Katherine Webb

Apparently A.J. McCarron can’t even have a woman stay over at his home to prevent her from driving drunk without gossip sites suggesting that he is cheating on girlfriend Katherine Webb.

Radar Online reported on Monday that model Margaret Wood hung out with the Alabama quarterback over the weekend. She was flying from LA to Memphis and had a stopover in Birmingham, not too far from the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. After her connecting flight to Memphis was cancelled, she and her friends went drinking, and McCarron apparently went to meet them. The group went back to McCarron’s afterwards.

“We were hanging out at his house, and I had been drinking, so he didn’t want me to drive,” Wood told Radar Online. “I did not stay at a hotel. That’s all I can say. I’m trying to be careful about what I say because I feel really bad.”

Wood says she met McCarron last fall, before he even got involved with Webb.

“He asked for my number back in the fall when I was on the sidelines at the Ole Miss-Alabama game,” Wood told Radar Online. “I didn’t even know who he was. I had no idea he was even talking to Katherine. I thought he was cute.”

This photo, posted to Wood’s Twitter account on Nov. 19, 2012, seems to corroborate her story:

Even after getting together with Webb, McCarron apparently was still trying to make plans with Wood.

Katherine Webb forced to leave ABC’s ‘Splash’ because of a back injury

Katherine-WebbKatherine Webb had not exactly been lighting things up on ABC’s reality diving show “Splash” prior to Tuesday night, but the former Miss Alabama USA had been holding her own. However, her run on the show came to an end this week due to a back injury.

According to AL.com, Webb had performed inconsistently on the show but done well enough to stick around while four other competitors were either eliminated or decided to quit. A training montage of Webb that was played at the beginning of the show’s most recent episode showed her struggling mightily during a series of practice dives. Before making her competitive dive on Tuesday, Webb revealed that she is leaving the show.

“I went to the doctor and unfortunately he told me I’m out for the competition,” she said.

Webb took to Twitter late Tuesday night to thank her fans for their support after making the announcement. Because Webb has been forced to leave the competition due to injury, the show’s rules state that the competitor who was most recently eliminated will be brought back. That person is 400-pound comedian Louie Anderson, who has served as an inspiration to many because of his witty sense of humor and the weight he has lost during the show.

Anderson delighted the audience on Tuesday with a feet-first jump from a 10-meter platform. However, I’m sure there are plenty of people who will miss seeing Webb in her bikini. AJ McCarron did all he could to coach her on dealing with the media, but I’m sure he could tell you that injuries happen.

AJ McCarron says he has been coaching Katherine Webb with her media work

Katherine-Webb-AJ-McCarronEver since Brent Musburger drooled over her on national television during the BCS National Championship game, Katherine Webb has been a celebrity. Her new-found fame has led to appearances in publications like Sports Illustrated and on reality TV shows like ABC’s “Splash.” As a result, she has had to learn how to deal with the media.

Luckily, Webb’s boyfriend AJ McCarron has already been there. Considering he plays for arguably the most popular football program in the nation, the Alabama quarterback knows a thing or two about having microphones in your face and cameras following you around.

“She’s been asking me for advice the whole time,” McCarron told ESPN.com’s Chris Low. “Even though she was Miss Alabama and all that, she had never been through any of the paparazzi deal, and it all came at her at once so fast.

“She’s still learning how to handle everything and will text me or call me for advice. I just have to tell her, ‘Listen, I’ve been going through this for three years almost.’ I do my best to help her every way I can.”

Something tells me it could be the other way around before long. As for Musburger, we already know the ESPN announcer doesn’t think he did anything wrong with what he said about Webb on the air. Webb even said herself that she appreciates what he has done for her career, and McCarron seems to share that opinion.

“He didn’t say anything out of line, and he told me they were going to show her,” McCarron said. “I told him where they would be sitting earlier that week at practice. He helped boost her career, which is awesome.”

For all that’s been said about the 73-year-old acting out of line by talking about how beautiful Webb is, he has made her into a very rich and successful young woman. If Musburger hadn’t said what he did about Webb, McCarron wouldn’t be giving her tips on how to handle fame. That’s just the way it goes in America.

Brent Musburger signs fan’s Katherine Webb poster ‘She’s a 10!’ (Picture)

Brent Musberger Katherine Webb poster

Brent Musburger is not shying away from the Katherine Webb situation. In fact, he is embracing it.

Musburger was calling the Kansas-Iowa State basketball game in Ames Monday and was approached by a fan who brought a Katherine Webb poster. The fan, Iowa State freshman Matt Mummelthei, showed Musburger the poster, and the announcer happily signed it with a personalized message.

“She’s a 10!” he wrote.

Mummelthei tells Larry Brown Sports that he got the idea to bring a Webb and Honey Badger poster to the game because Musburger “obsessed over” both of them during the last two BCS National Championship Games. He says he spotted Musburger before the game and approached him with the posters.

Mummelthei says he was nervous and worried about approaching Musburger with the poster, but the announcer was laughing and easygoing about it.

“He just loved it,” Mummelthei says of Musburger. “He gladly signed it.”

Musburger said last month that he didn’t think he did anything wrong when he gushed about the beauty queen’s good looks during the BCS National Championship Game. Webb stated that although she hadn’t spoken to Musburger, she appreciated his compliments about her looks. She also recently said she was thankful to him for launching her career, and she even retweeted a picture of the poster.

AJ McCarron calls out Darnell Dockett for flirting with Katherine Webb

Katherine-Webb-AJ-McCarronWhen Katherine Webb first gained national attention after she was shown on television during the BCS National Championship Game, Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett was one of the first people to hit on her. Dockett tweeted his phone number at Webb and then claimed it was supposed to be a direct message.

Last week, Dockett said he would be able to get Webb if he wanted her, but that she isn’t his type of girl. He said he is more into “hood chicks,” but that apparently hasn’t stopped him from flirting with the former Miss Alabama on Twitter. On Friday, Dockett gave Webb another shout-out.

It sounds like AJ McCarron has had enough of the 290-pounder hitting on his girlfriend. The Alabama quarterback called out Dockett with a pair of tweets on Friday night.
