Katherine Webb

A.J. McCarron Upset

Over GF's Sudden Fame

1/9/2013 1:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

2:07 PM PT -- Katherine has released a statement to TMZ confirming she cancelled 8 interviews scheduled for today ... but says, "My decision to cancel the interviews was not made at A.J.'s request."

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 -- Miss Alabama USA 2012 -- 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.

Again, screw her boyfriend. She would be STUPID not to ride this 15 minutes of attention. Screw his insecure and jealousness as well. If he were decent, he would encourage her success. She needs to drop any boyfriend who does not celebrate her success. My vote is drop his azz pronto.

I think Katherine has HUGE potential. The cameras love her. A.J. should be nervous.

Okay, so he's not jealous? But he is. That's ALL it's about; he's figuratively waving his arms about shouting "but look at me! look what i can do!!" What a pathetic little boy. Grow a pair AJ and be proud of your pageant girl before she realizes how big of d-bag you are.

He sounds a little jealous and controlling to me...

Sounds like jealousy to me! I wonder if he really means it about staying out of the press? That would be good on him.

He should get over it, and she should find herself someone a little more grown-up. First time I have ever seen a guy who was OK with letting everyone know he travelled with 30 pair of shoes. He sounds like Kardashian material.

"he's not happy that the media is ignoring his accomplishments on the field"

There's a problem here    

She's a beautiful girl, has a great body, and seems very gracious but why oh why does she have those obvious hard rubber looking breasts? Damn.

Guys who are so insecure over their girlfriend being more successful than them general end up beating them in the end. In short amount of times I bet their will be some domestic dispute case between them.
