Jessica Szohr and Ed Westwick are back on and hotter than ever.
According to the New York Post, the on-again lovebirds spent hours locked at the Hard Rock Hotel during last weekend’s Lollapalooza festival where they racked up a $800 room-service bill. All this while frantic publicists were phoning and banging on their door.
Rather than attend the scheduled Belvedere Nights event, they apparently played dumb and pretended they had no idea they were supposed to attend. In an attempt to save face, they paid for their hotel room and incidentals and headed home.
Says a source: “Jessica was invited and took Ed as her plus-one. They were flown first-class and given two rooms, and her talent wrangler, Aaron, agreed they would appear at night or at one of the day lounges. But they never showed up. and instead they hit the minibar and ordered room service. The bill for food and booze for three nights was over $830. Publicists were calling their room and banging on their door. Eventually this blew up into a big argument on Sunday, when the event boss phoned Jessica and said he was canceling their flights. She said ‘We don’t need to do this. We can pay our own way.’ They left that night, and Jessica paid for everything.”
For her part, a rep for Jessica says, “If Jessica had known, she would have gone. She was never told until Sunday, and as a result she agreed to pay for everything herself and left. There was no fight.”
As for Ed? “Ed went as Jessica’s plus-one and had no idea about any agreement or photographs he had to take,” says his publicist. “He always honors any agreements.”
