Skip to comments.(Alabama QB) A.J. McCarron Upset Over Girlfriend's Sudden Fame
Posted on 01/09/2013 5:51:23 PM PST by drewh
Katherine says she decided to pull out because she feared her relationship with A.J. will be viewed as a "celebrity status" thing ... instead of a real, legitimate connection ... and worries that the misconception could spell doom for the couple. "I want it to be about me and him," Webb says ... adding, "He's a guy I can see myself having a real future with."
Katherine Webb has gone off the grid ... banning herself from speaking to ANY media outlets ... partly because her superstar QB boyfriend A.J. McCarron is upset that he's been overshadowed by Webb's hotness.
Of course, Webb -- the reigning Miss Alabama USA -- shot to instant fame Monday night, when ESPN announcer Brent Musburger pointed her out in the crowd and RAVED about how insanely attractive she is.
Since the game, Webb's gained more than 100k Twitter followers and has been getting hit up by media outlets from around the country -- including the "Today" show and various entertainment news shows.
But sources close to Webb tell us ... McCarron made it clear to her -- he's not happy that the media is ignoring his accomplishments on the field. We're told Webb is taking her relationship seriously and thinks the publicity could torpedo things with A.J.
In fact, we're told one major media outlet showed up to Webb's front door this morning looking to speak with Katherine ... but she turned them down. We're told she also backed out of several interviews that were already scheduled.
Sources connected to the situation tell TMZ ... Donald Trump -- who owns the Miss USA competition -- got word of Webb's self-imposed media blackout ... and decided to get involved.
We're told Trump talked her into appearing on the "Today" show -- but she won't budge when it comes to doing any other PR.
Sources close to A.J. tell us ... the QB has made it clear to friends he wants to keep his private life private. One source tells us A.J. isn't jealous of Katherine, but wants to keep the spotlight on his team and their accomplishments.

Yes, she is hot. And whether you like the “Miss Alabama USA” thing or not, she has her own public identity. I have a problem with McCarron having a problem with her getting attention like this. Huge red flag, missy. I don’t care if he is the QB of the BCS championship team.
I wonder if he has ever seen he without that fancy paint job.
Aw jeesh! Grow up AJ! The seasons over you knucklehead.
A.J. you idiot!The way to impress your girlfriend does NOT include whinning about how much people admire her.There’s guys out there with a lot more potential than you have that would kill to get her.
He looks like a goofy kid who’s out of his league.
She’s not that hot. I can go over to Target or the mall and see a hotter girl anytime.
Agreed. He knew she was a Miss USA competitor when they started dating or hooked up or whatever. Did he think she wouldn't get attention if she won the competition?
(Maybe it's just a photo-sizing issue, but her nose is strangely near her chin.)
She looks much older than him. Looks like she could be in her early 30s and he looks like he’s still in high school.
If it is from TMZ, it must be true. /s
Agreed. She is a model....other guys are going to look at her. She got more famous off that 5 minutes than she could have hoped. Let her have her moment in the sun.....
The way that AJ lit into Barrett, my guess is that he is a bit of a conyrol freak. If it wasn’t for his offensive lineman, Barrett Jones,he wouldn’t have had the success that he has had.
She can break up with him and go out with me then. I cannot throw a football, but I can dance a storm up. LOL
That Vile TMZ makes crap up !
It’s a left wing website for obamabots
