Katherine Webb is familiar with what life is like in the public spotlight. As someone who was crowned Miss Alabama USA last year, she wasn’t exactly unknown before she became A.J. McCarron’s girlfriend. However, it sounds like the attention Webb is receiving in the wake of Alabama winning the national championship and ESPN’s broadcasters drooling over her has started to take its toll. According to TMZ, Webb released a statement on Thursday confirming that she had canceled eight interviews but insisting it was not at the request of McCarron. Earlier in the day, there was speculation that the Alabama star was becoming upset that his girlfriend is receiving more attention than he is. “I want it to be about me and him,” Webb said in the statement. “He’s a guy I can see myself having a real future with.” Webb said she decided to cancel the interviews because she doesn’t want her relationship with McCarron being viewed as merely a “celebrity status” thing. Remember, Katherine claims she and A.J. met when they were tagged in a mutual tweet and insists she had no idea he was the quarterback of the best college football team in the country. A report from the NY Post also says Webb has decided to change her phone number. Donald Trump, who knows Webb through their mutual connection with Miss Universe, said the calls have become too much for her. “She was forced to change her phone number,” Trump reportedly said. “She was getting thousands and thousands of calls. Katherine has to stay grounded now that she’s become a big star.” McCarron may have just led the Crimson Tide to its third national championship in four years, but Webb is the talk of the town. If A.J. is unable to get past NFL players hitting on his girlfriend and seeing her face on every tabloid magazine in the country, their relationship could be doomed.
