Alabama QB AJ McCarron Split From Girlfriend Katherine Webb
College football sweethearts Katherine Webb and Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron have called it quits, according to reports.
Rumors surrounding the football royalty couple have been popping up since Sept. 20, when a report surfaced that Webb and McCarron had ended their year-long relationship.
“Yes [they’ve broken up]. Katherine’s just trying to stay real busy,” Leslie Webb, Katherine’s mother, reportedly confirmed to Radar Online.
Since her football romance became public, Webb, Miss Alabama 2012, shot to stardom with modeling deals and even a reality television gig – she competed on the celebrity diving competition Splash and has modeled in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
The rumored breakup circulated on the web, despite a denial from a representative of the model herself.
“AJ and Katherine have not broken up…The fact of the matter is Katherine is busy working [she is currently in NYC for a fashion shoot] and AJ is in the middle of the college football season on the #1 team in America,” reads the statement given to Radar Online.
Webb also appears to have denied the reports via Twitter, writing, “Don’t believe everything you hear.”
Don't believe everything you hear…smh

However, news outlets are quick to point out that the two lovebirds did unfollow each other on Twitter, which could be a sign of a breakup. In addition, a source close to McCarron said that, though the couple might not be broken up, they are certainly not together.
“It might end up just being a break, but for now they’ve called it quits,” said the source.
McCarron has not yet commented on the reports.
