AceShowbiz - Jewel Kilcher had admitted her adoration for Indianapolis Colts backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst. She just has to confirm the latest reports that they are dating.
Rumors of them dating started because the two seem to be running into each other a lot lately. Jewel posted some photos from the national championship game on Monday, January 11 night. Actor Robert Patrick also tweeted a picture of him meeting Jewel and Charlie backstage of Austin City Limits in Texas on Saturday. But it was TV host Nancy O'Dell's Facebook post that outed their status. "Love running in to my pal Jewel on the field. Loved her from 1st time I met her & now she's dating a Clemson fella, Charlie Whitehurst= awesome! #nationalchampionship," O'Dell captioned a pic of the lovebirds.
Jewel actually made no secret that she had been spending time a lot in Indianapolis and attending Colts games. She was even emotional when she had to leave the city, tweeting, "Sad to leave Indianapolis.... Had a great time...But now the mountains call..."
Jewel was married to pro rodeo cowboy Ty Murray for six years and has a four-year-old son with him. They announced their divorce in July 2014.
