Kings’ Jarret Stoll “Confirms” He’s Dating Erin Andrews When Everyone Already Knew That, Still Treated As Scoop For Some Reason

A couple months back, we ran an item on the hubbub over an Instagram photo showing Erin Andrews enjoying New Year’s festivities with Los Angeles Kings center Jarret Stoll, in what appeared to be a couple-y way. So couple-y, in fact, that one person tweeted at Andrews talking about her “boyfriend,” even though they hadn’t officially come out as a couple or anything. How Andrews responded:

Still, nothing official, but at the very least she didn’t deny it. In other words… amount of time everyone’s been pretty sure Erin Andrews and Jarret Stoll are a couple: 2.5 months.

Then, just before Valentine’s Day, TMZ caught the two taking a stroll, holding hands, and asked them about Valentine’s Day plans. The couple played along, discussed possible plans, and generally were really, really clear that they’re a couple. Unless they just happen to hang out and like to pretend they’re dating when cameras are on them. But we’re gonna call that option “unlikely.” In other words… amount of time everyone’s known damn well Erin Andrews and Jarret Stoll are a couple: over one month.

And that brings us to the present. Yesterday, E! (piggybacking, we assume, off that TMZ video) asked Stoll how that Valentine’s Day went. Nothing too noteworthy there, right? Well, not really, except that E!’s story says this:

Sorry guys, Erin Andrews is taken.

Los Angeles Kings hockey player Jarret Stoll exclusively confirmed to E! News today that he’s dating the sports reporter and Dancing With the Stars alum (which only makes that kiss attempt by 50 Cent that much more awkward.)

“Exclusively confirmed.” Again, this was more than two months ago:

This was more than one month ago:

Sweet scoop, guys.

    The TMZ video and her own constant self publicizing didn’t get her enough attention so she had her PR team set up this latest publicity stunt. Um, I mean “random” interview on the street. The chick needs constant attention. Don’t believe me? Check the daily Instagram selfies.

    He also confirmed it on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show months ago.

    Tmz is always getting celb. out so not every one believes that it was set up!She doesn’t need to as she gets a lot of attention even when not The instagrams&tweets are her accounts &her life and her followers love being updated. What do others do with their account ;but have things on it about that person. Nobody is forced to look at them.! E just seemed like a follow up about Valentines Day! Nice interview! Good way to get positive info. out rather then the negative .

    If you watched the E video you can tell it’s a total set up. What athlete goes into such detail about their private life to a tabloid reporter? Also just read she’s filling in for Kelly Friday. So what a coincidence they keep name dropping Strahan’s name (he introduced them). Next week she can go on the show and publicize her relationship because it was all over tabloids this week.

    Wasn’t she supposedly stalked? You don’t see too many stalking victims publicize their lives as much as this woman does. And he’s no better than she is.
