James Lafferty Dating Eve Hewson -- Bono's Daughter!

James Lafferty Dating Eve Hewson -- Bono's Daughter!

One Tree Hill hunk James Lafferty is dating Eve Hewson, the daughter of U2 rock legend Bono (she was born Memphis Eve Hewson).

James, 25, and Eve, 19, looked like quite the couple on Tuesday (December 28) while watching the Leopardstown Horse Races with her dad and mom Ali from their private box in Dublin, Ireland. “They looked adorable together,” an onlooker tells “Eve kept whispering in James’ ear and they exchanged a few kisses.”

Cute couple!

Eve stars in the upcoming crime thriller, This Must Be The Place, alongside Sean Penn and Frances McDormand. New episodes of One Tree Hill‘s 8th season returns on Tuesday, January 25th on The CW!

UPDATE: A JJ reader writes in, “James and Eve were making out at a recent concert for Brooklyn-based alternative/rock band Wakey Wakey held at Maxwell’s, Hoboken, NJ, on November 20. They hung out at the with friends after the concert and looked adorable together!” (James is good friends with lead singer Mike Grubbs and also stars in Wakey Wakey’s “Car Crash” video.)

Piggy looking daughter of Bono.

James is so hot! Lucky, lucky girl!

ccghccghm @ 12/29/2010 at 1:12 pm

What, no outrage over underage drinking?

This is really old news JustJared!!

andreanne @ 12/29/2010 at 1:20 pm

SO HOT !! they lookk cute

@ccghccghm: In europe she is not underage to drink alcohol. At 18 you’re able to drink legally.

The last rumour about them was that they breaking up, so it’s clearly false.

James moved on pretty fast from Shantel, I dont blame him though. I give them few months before he cheats on Evie with some other girl.

Ugly piggy daughter of the rich singer daddy.

hjsjisjis @ 12/29/2010 at 1:34 pm


Jenna Shantel was cheating on James but word is that he’s cheated before so I wouldn’t doubt it.

JAmes had had only one serious relationship with Rachel Wilson all the other was never serious and James and Shantel always brohen up and get back together. It sais that James don’t whant to settle down and i don’t think just because she is bono’s daughter that make change think.

That won’t last…James won’t commit to anyone right now and he’ll move to a next girl quickly.Eve loves him more than he loves her…Shantel also has moved on, she’s been dating Rob Buckley for some time.

Shantall is with Rob together (who plays some role in OTH too)
She always said how best friends they are..etc. So of course it was meant to be that shantal and james was over.

She’s a *****, he’s a player, it’ll all be over before you know it.

@ccghccghm: Fyi they’re in Ireland where it is legal to drink from 18.


Yes, they were both cheating on each other but when James found out about Shantel cheating on him, they broke up. That relationship was very unhealthy.

James loves his strip clubs way too much to settle down.

Why does everyone assume all CW stars are dating. He wasn’t dating Quinn from OTH. They were just friends! People shouldn’t assume all the time!

Shantel isn’t dating Rob, she’s dating Brittany Snow’s ex. lol

The regular JustJared crazies have reached this post.

@Lauren Shantel and Rob are dating…They were just friends but it turn into something more recently…They were spotted ahnd in hand beofre christmas break in NC and are spending the holidays together…

As for James and Eve…won’t last at all…She’s young and James likes to play the field…Definetely not the relationship type of guy for now.

Shantel was dating Micheal-Brittany Snow’s-before joining OTH and they’ve been over for a while but believe what you want! ;)

hjsjisjis @ 12/29/2010 at 2:06 pm

Shantel is a witch. Robert Buckley should run fast.

Just after her break up with James she was with BS’s ex! But know everyone in Wilmi say that there indeed together and they don’t really hide, just like James and Eve at Wakey! Wakey concert a month ago, report says they definitely not hide!!!!!!

@Jenna: Well know one seemed to care when Miley was drinking legally in Spain.

I live in Wilmington and yes…James and Eve don’t hide like Shantel and Rob just like Sophia and Austin! They are all happy…

Rob adores Shantel and it has been that way for a while.
James and Eve well…I don’t think they are end game
Sophia and Austin well they are super happy together and will last…

But I guess what matter the most is that they are all happy in the type of relationship they are in!

You people talk to much ,it’s nobody business who he’s dating!!

James lafferty and eve hewson were going to the laker’s match ( lakers vs milwaukee) in 12/21/2010. They’ re courtside behind the lake cheerleaders …

Some of those are kind of nauseating

drinking in public???

stephzann @ 12/29/2010 at 2:39 pm

this is old news. i saw them together at the Edun fashion show in NY in september. that’s bono and his wife’s clothing line.

aww they are cute :D
ok ugly really? i thought she was pretty and natural james looks yummy as always
good luck to them x :D

So it seems like some people on here know a lot about James antics. I’ve heard a lot about him not being able to stay in a steady relationship for too long. Which I get since he is still in his mid-twenties and seeing as how he didn’t do something completely unforgivable like cheating on a spouse or something, his inabilitey to stay with someone for too long, doesn’t make him some horrible guy.
However, I’ve heard of a lot of not so pleasant things about Shantel. I know some people like to put the blame on James for that relationship not working out, but truth be told, Shantel behaved very immature throughout the relationship. She would flirt with other guys and used the fact that she is pretty to her advantage. She’s a tramp, so I’m glad things didn’t work out between them. It was a toxic relationship that had NO substance or meaning.

Let’s get something straight…James never dated Shantal, Sophia, anyone else from the show. So you people who keep making up cheating stories about his false relationships need to stop and get a life. Not everyone who star together on a show date each other and fyi, guys and girls can be just friends too. So get a life and stop making up false ****. Honestly, when I saw how old he and Eve was, I immediately thought he was taking notes from Chad with his relationship with Kenzie. But I like Eve more than Kenzie as well as I like James more than Chad and wish them the best. It’s hard to keep a relationship private when your famous so just let them be with no picture taking or false stories. When their ready to come out to the public with their relationship, they will.

Cute couple!! Hot James!!!

@Laur You can believe what you want and it’s okay but for someone who grew up in Wilmington and still lives there…James dated Sophia and Shantel…and both time he wasn’t afraid to show it. There’s even plenty of coupley pictures of Sophia and James and Shantel/James on Internet…But if you don’t want to believe that’s fine!

@laur: James did date Shantel and Sophia and there’s picture proof, too smart one.

@ccghccghm: Well, in Ireland the drinking age is 19. So she wasn’t doing anything illegal.

it’s clear it’s more a family holiday for Bono’s family! cute couple

Oh, you mean there’s a picture of them holding hands? Just because their holding hands doesn’t mean their together. But hey, I hugged my guy friend the other day, does that mean I’m dating him? NO. And you can take pictures close with one another and NOT be together. And fyi, James and Shantal barely even talk when their not filming or anything. So you people need to stop living in a fantasy world and starting false rumors and face the reality. GET OVER IT *******.

btw, James/Eve pictures are more “couply” like, there I use your word. There are NO pictures of him in mid-kiss with Shantal or Sophia.

@Laur Shantel and James barely talk because their relationship didn’t end well…And the pics are not holding hands or huggin’ in one of them James is kissing Shantel and on another one James has his hand on Sophia’s butt and everything but if you want to live in denial that’s your choice! But come to Wilmington and talk to people around and you’ll realise this isn’t b*llsh*t

This post is the perfect example of how crazy delusional some people are in the OTH fanbase. It’s hilarious.

I think James and Eve make a cute couple. They look happy, so good for them!

The crazy delusional people are the one who are to stubborn to admit that two person date in the past when they did infact date…I’ve seen those pics on facebook, myspace and other blog but if you prefer thinkin’ that it nevers happen well no problem but don’t come here sayin’ that those who say that James dated Shantel and Sophia are crazy and living in a fantasy world cause we could say the same thing for you!


Woahhh I wasn’t talking about you guys. I know James dated Sophia and Shantel. There’s more than enough proof out there about that! lol. I’m talking about the people who you can tell are mad that James is dating someone other than them.

@Jenni Sorry! :( But yeah soem people still think that they have a chance with James…fantasy thinkin’ big time!

Piggy girl. She only has his dad money.

A pig like girl…

a pig lilke girl

Irishteen @ 12/29/2010 at 8:33 pm

Ah now lads quit trashing Eve, she is genuinely lovely!
She was in my year at school and I had a few classes with her- didn’t know her well, but she was always down to earth and friendly- she’s no Geldof girl! She doesn’t use her daddy for fame/attention and actually has talent, she can’t help it if she’s stuck in her dad’s shadow whilst early in her career.

Was he really dating Shantel? Well, i don’t know if they were just rumours, i’m always behind on OTH dating details, last thing i heard was he was sort of dating Sophia Bush, and that’s old. This girl is pretty, they look cute together :)

@ccghccghm: Shes 19, they were in ireland…you can drink at 18 there, 16 with a meal.

Hey guys you seem to know a lot of thing
i wonder if you know how are the relationship with Sophia and James nowadays, are they still friends, did they still hang out together ? I just want to know if their breakup have some influence (bad) between them
i didnt know that Shantel was with James, i hope that the rumors about the both cheat on one other arent true, bc of the climate on the set and bc i always heard that James was a gentleman
And if its true it would be weird for the relationship between Rob and James if Rob really date Shantel bc they are friends(Rob and James)
If someone have some answer it would be great, but the most important it’s that they are all happy and there is a good ambiance on the set and they are still friends which each other

@sarah Well Shantel didn’t cheat on James and neither was he…Their relationship was pretty weird they kept broking up and getting back together and finally broke up for good. Sophia and James still talk but doesn’t have the friendship they once have and they don’t hang out anymore which is understandable because Sophia is now always with Austin but there are no hard feelings between Sophia and James…James and Rob used to be besties but since Shantel and James broke up, they don’t really spend time together and Rob is now always hangin out with Shantel and they’ve started dating just recently. But the ambiance is still good on the set as far as I know but it’s like a family. They are days better than the others…But I heard that James doesn’t really hang out with the cast outside except Stephen Colletti and apparently he wasn’t even at the Xmas party even though he was still in NC and if he was there, he didn’t took any pics with Rob or Shantel…


Oh it’s okay! I had only read the first page when I made my comment. I hadn’t read the James/Sophia/Shantel comments on the second page at the time, but it’s easy to see how my comment could’ve been misinterpreted.

You seem to be in “the know” with this stuff. I’ve always wondered if James and Austin get along with each other. I heard there was some drama with the James/Sophia break up, which I don’t know is true because there’s so many rumors regarding this cast, but I didn’t know if that would’ve put any type of strain between the two of them or if they were ever even friends to begin with.

@ Alex
Shantel and Rob aren’t dating and never have. People want them to because they are so close in real life but they’re just best friends and nothing more.

The fact of the matter is, James isn’t prepared to settle down right now. He’s been dating around for quite some time moving from Sophia to Shantel to Eve. I doubt him and Eve will last long given his track record.

Well some people around here have seen Shantel and Rob holding hand and Rob is spending the holiday break with Shantel and her family…but oh well…I don’t think Eve and James will last either but for now they are together and look great but yeah certainly won’t last…He’s not ready to settle down yet!

@Jenni Well, from what I heard James and Austin were never “friends” to begin with but I think people assume they hated each other because Sophia and James broke up and then she got back with Austin but no…they are cool with one another but not friends…you’ll never heard about them hangin’ out outside filming. And James was hurt by the break up with Sophia even though people think their relationship was more about sex but what I heard is that James really had feeling for her back then and the fact that she never admit she was dating him and eventually got with Austin hurt him but they are still cordial with one another but not “friends” anymore at least not how they used to be before…

WTF?!? He is supposed to be my future husband or a f##k buddy….lol! In all seriousness, he could have found someone better looking! SEXY JAMES!!

Wow can’t believe that is the same girl from the For the first time video by the script. She looks so different

@kelsi: Apparently James was not in oth chrismas party because Michael Galeotti was there and the 2 of them don’t get along at all

Just wanted to chime in. I live in WIlmington and have a lot of friends in and around cast members. James and Sophia dated for a while. He liked her more than she liked him, she was always just waiting for Austin, and he got burned. He and Shantel were never officially dating as I understood it, more of a FWB thing. But people are right, it was toxic, especially when Shantel would up and leave for weekends at a time with other guys. I don’t know much about Eve but she seems nice enough. James is young, he’s gotten hurt in the past, so it’s pretty natural at his age to play the field. At least he isn’t anywhere near as bad as Chad.

As for the Christmas party, there were a bunch of reasons he wasn’t there. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a cast with as much drama as this group has had.

How exactly Joy and James relationship is? Are they close friends or just People who work together? I don’t care if they dated or not it’s not the point it’s just if they get along or not?

It’s not what is used to be even on a friendship level. They still support each other and care about each other, it’s just done from a distance now.

Are any of the cast members from the show really close friends? I mean by reading interviews and seeing pictures, I can tell that Shantel is close with both Joy and Rob, and Sophia is close with Austin and Jana, and by twitter it seems that Joy and Sophia are good friends. But, whenever I hear things about the cast sometimes it seems like they really aren’t that close with each other at all. I also heard that Hilarie isn’t friends with no one from the cast anymore, not sure about Chad though.

@JustAGirl: Thanks it’s weird because they were so close during the firsts seasons.
But afterwall it’s not because they’re actors that they have to love each other to death, i mean in real life we don’t stay friends with everyone ever!!!

@babou: Why don’t James and Michael get along?

@JustAGirl: Why didn’t James go to the Christmas party?

@Sandy: that’s what i heard but maybe it’s just sad fan who have nothing to do better that make rumor.

bono was one of ledgers fave singers

Sophia and Joy are good friends. Sure, they don’t have same opinions when it comes to politics but they respect each other and Joy joined twitter and crowdrise because of Sophia. For some reason Joy fans can’t stand Sophia so there are always stupid rumors about them not getting along.

James only hangs out with Stephen, Lee and Mark. Even though he’s married, Mark cheats on his wife constantly.

If this show was popular as Gossip Girl and filmed in LA or NY all of their dirty secrets would already come out.

Wow! I’m really surprised with all your knowledge about cast private life…
I suposed that most of that comments are just not confirmed rumours, but I wanna know if you heard more about Rob and Shantel friendship or relationship, because I read a lot of rumours of them holding hands and spending x-mas holidays together but there are no pics or proofs of it.
I’m the ones I thought that them were dating since the first time I saw their chemistry, but her dating James surprised me a lot, so I don’t know how is their relationship by now.

And one thing more.. if you know how is the relationship of Sophia and Shantel? I mean… if their romance with James did that Sophia and Shantel didn’t get along?

Thank you and sorry for my bad english!

@kelsi @alex @justAgirl

Do you guys know if Austin is serious with Sophia, because a lot of people used to say that he is a flirty guy, that he loves to flirt with every single woman. I just don’t want their relationship to end like the Chophia one did.

That’s not news but they’re cute :D

They look cute together … :o)

And as for the alcohol — they were in Europe where the legal drinking age is 18!

It’s weird because all american complain about the fact sh’s 19 and drink wine!!! Please it’s not like every american wait 21 to drink alcohol for the first time!!! Some realism will be good!!!!!
James is just sooooooo hot espacially with his jacket it’s look reallly good on him and the little beard Yummy!!! She’s some lucky girl i hope she is aware of that!!!! Good for them i hope they’re trully happy!!

oooooold news. I have a picture of James & Eve together from back in July/August in wilmington. they are not shy about affection..

ooold news. I have a picture of James & Eve from wilmington from back in July/August .theyre not shy about affection ..

@Manu Yeah Austin love to flirt but that’s how he is…He’s a charming guy…but he’ll never hurt Sophia….He’s very much in love with her and their relationship is super serious. They are ALWAYS together and even live together…Sophia has nothing to worry about, she’s got Austin in her pocket, he follows her everywhere.

Well,some people said that some OTH fans are crazy and when I read all of your comments I think it’s kinda true!! PEOPLE GET A LIFE

@kelsi Thank you Kelsi, are they still living with Jana in wilmington?
Do you know if they are living together in LA?

As for James and Eve I think they are cute and if they are happy that’s all that matters.

@kelsi Thank you so much kelsi. Do you know if jana still live with them in wilmington? And are Austin and Sophia living together in LA also?
As for James and Eve all that matters is that they are happy. I think they are cute together

@Manu You’re welcome! No Jana doesn’t live with them anymore. This season Sophia and Austin are living just the two of them with their dogs in an appartment in downtown Wilmington. Jana is barely in Wilmington anymore, she’s just in town when she’s filming and goes to Nashville all the time. I think she’s stayin’ at the hotel but not 100% sure. For the LA thing I would assume so since they are living together in Wilmington and are inseparable but I’m not completely sure!

She’s pretty but cast alongside Sean Penn at 19?!?! And no previous jaw dropping roles to back it up?
So many talented actors out there who’ll never get that chance just because they aren’t related to a famous rock star..

Hey Kelsi! I was just wondering whether you know anything about whats going on with Jana and Jonathan? Do they still talk or are they over for good and are no longer on talking terms? I know Sophia and Austin were a huge support system for her when it was revealed/announced she and Jonathan were over. I love how supportive the three of them are of one another! I know Jana really wants to get into her music career right now which explains why she spends so much time in Nashville and not Wilmy, Detroit,etc.

@Jenny It’s pretty unclear what happened to John and Jana…They broke up pretty fast after the wedding like 2 weeks…Of course Sophia was a big support system bc she had the same thing happening to her with Chad…John and Jana are over for good and they don’t really talk anymore from what I heard…Some people said John cheated on her but nothing 100% confirmed but apparently John did something to her that made her pull the plug on their marriage.

@alex: @kelsi: @Jenna:

Sorry for repeat my comment, I just wanna know if you could tell me something about that, in case you missed read it before :)

“Wow! I’m really surprised with all your knowledge about cast private life…

And one thing more.. if you know how is the relationship of Sophia and Shantel? I mean… if their romance with James did that Sophia and Shantel didn’t get along?

Thank you and sorry for my bad english!”

@Laura I heard the same thing about Rob and Shantel holding hands and everything but haven’t see it with my own eyes…some of my friends did and it wouldn’t surprised me since they spend all of their free time together…Shantel and Sophia get along very well. Sophia don’t really care about the fact that Shantel and James dated since she’s in love with Austin and wanted to be with him at the end of the day not James. She kinda dumped James to be with Austin so she couldn’t care less about who James is dating and like some people said James had more feelings toward Sophia than she had toward him.

@kelsi What I don’t understand is that Sophia dumped James to be with Austin so it was at the end of season 6. But during the summer Austin wrote a blog about his trip in Italy and post pictures with several girls… So when did their relationship began exactly?

Austin wanted to be with Sophia from the very beginning. The fact that he took the job on OTH to be with her spoke volumes. And the reason Sophia and Austin couldn’t really make it work prior to bim joining OTH was because of the long distance and because neither of them were sure how the other felt. James and Sophia dated, yes. But by the time Austin came and joined OTH, the relationship wasn’t as strong between James and Sophia as it started off as being. They really did care about one another and they still do, although now they don’t really spend time together since Sophia is dating Austin and James has been doing his own thing, including dating other girls as well. Towards the end of their relationship, I think Sophia pretty much knew it wouldn’t really mount to anything super serious because they started off dating to see of it could turn into something deep. They started off as being really close friends and always hung out together and at one point, they realized they were developing feelings for one another which is why they decided to date. We’ve all done it to try and figure out if you can make it as couple with someone, and sometimes you realize it works and sometimes you realize it doesn’t and you’re better off as friends. And thats exactly what happened with Sophia and James. With Austin, however, she always shared this connection with him since she met him in 2006 but never really did anything about it until Austin, himself, confessed to her how he wanted to be with her and how he took the job on OTH to be with her. Sophia was nervous and hesitant about it at first(which is understandable seeing how her past relationships have gone) but once she learned how much he cared for her and wanted to be with her, she decided to give them a chance. And how they’re both happy and together.
As for Shantel and James, like others have said, that relationship was toxic and made NO sense. Especially with the way they were always treating one another. I’m pretty sure Rob and Shantel are together now which isn’t surprising because judging by how much time they spent together, I knew it was going to turn into something more. And Rob and James definitely don’t hang out like they used. But I do wonder if or how long Shantel and Rob will make it.

There relaionship began when they started filming for season 7. I know several people think that they started dating at the end of season 6 but that is definitely NOT true. Sophia and James ended during the filming of the final episodes of season 6. After they ended their relationship, Austin confessed to Sophia how he wanted to be with her. But Soph wasn’t really ready at the time to commit to anything after everything, after season 6 ended and everyone went on their summer vacations, Austin went to Italy and Sophia went to LA. They weren’t dating at the time. It was during the break that Sophia had to have her tonsils removed, which she talked about at the Star Trek premiere and when Austin had came back from Italy, he went to see Sophia and to check how she was doing. Things just started to develop between them from there.

@Claire What Shay said is totally right! They started seeing each other in may and thing got stonger when they started filming season7 and since then they couldn’t be happier…They are very happy together, always smiling and eveything…Their couple is real and really strong from what I saw! I think Sophia realised that she could really trust Austin and give him her love and she realised that she wouldn’t have her heart broken again.

Sock puppets are fun.

are you saying that joy and james aren’t really friends anymore? what sophia did to james sounds pretty douchey.

It wasn’t douchy especially since they had both broken up way before Sophia and Austin started dating. And they were never very serious to begin with. James is over it and Sophia is over it. So I can’t understand why the fans can’t get over it.LMAO
And Joy and James aren’t close. They care for one another but like someone said, they aren’t as close as they used to be. Don’t really know what happened between them.

it sounds douchey in that she was stringing him along while she sorted out her feelings for austin. if she wanted austin all along then what was the point other than having a warm body to get her laid?

Can someone really tell us about James and Joy’s situation? They talk a little or not at all?????

it was said that joy and james dont really have much to do with each other anymore.

Yeah what is/was up with Joy and James….?

And why would James hate Michael? I thought he was a good guy and made Joy super duper happy…

Joy and James dated at the very beginning of the show, broke up, got back together, and during season four or five I think Joy and Michael were “separated” and Joy and James started spending time together again. Then Joy and Michael got back together, and now she’s pregnant and James hates Michael because James loved Joy very much but since he wasn’t ready to commit/settle down Joy had to move on and Michael was ready you know?
Joy and James are friendly towards each other on set but they don’t spend time together off-set anymore. Things are really awkward now that Joy is pregnant and James has turned into quite the player.

LOL. Calm down girl.
She was never stringing him along. Sophia and James were dating way before Austin ever came to town and joined OTH. For all Sophia knew, nothing was going to ever happen between her and Austin and was fine with it. She considered him a friend at the time. Nothing more, nothing less because of many factors standing in their way. She barely saw him or anything because they lived completely separate lives before he joined OTH. And once he did, there friendship got stronger. But she didn’t date him until after she and James were done and until Austin told her how much he wanted to be with her. And like others have said, she actually spent some time just being single until later on in the summer when she and Austin decided to give it a go.
So do yourself a favor, and DON’T jump to conclusions. Take it from the people who know the truth and actually live in Wilmy and know the cast and crew. Because bottom line is- more than half of the crap circulating about the cast on line is nothing but rumors and pure/mindless BS.

lolololol james and joy NEVER dated. wtf people

Hahahahah @ 12/30/2010 at 1:01 pm

I’m sorry but all of the sh*tt about James and Joy sounds like LIES.
James and Joy NEVER dated and they NEVER will. You Naley fans really need to get over it and stop hating on Michael or whoever James dates because nothing will ever make Joy and James want to date in real life.
This is some hilarious sh*tt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Um, yeah they did actually I know for a fact so don’t try and tell me I don’t know things that I witnessed. Wtf people.

@Woah I am calm lollol.

Isophia has done tons of other things that make me question what kind of person she is and its been made clear by other people who have ins with the show that she was still dealing with her feelings for him when austin came in 2008 on the show and she was sitll dating james.

plus she was really tacky with that interview she did where she was blabbing about how austin joined the show to be with her considering she was still with james lafferty then.

Did you take your meds today?????????????
You do realize that if what you said was true, this would have been all over online ages ago and knowing the OTH fans, it would’ve turned into some sort of a hilarious f*cked up mess. Especially since this fanbase is so crazy and effed up.
Talk to anyone in the cast or related to them, and they too will laugh at this James and Joy story.
Thank you for providing us will a laugh though!! Haha

omg seriously emilia james and joy NEVER dated. who the hell is starting this sh*t???? have some respect ok. shes been with her husband for almost the whole show and shes like 8 months pregnant

So is it true that James is such a player???

Wow, okay, whatever do you want to see pictures of Joy, James and I from all the times we were hanging out and times they were together because I can show them to you guys. Really, I’d love to.

omg you psychos. shipping naley is something but for fcks sake END this james and joy bullllsh*t. its so disgusting.

I don’t evens hip Naley, rarely watch the show to be honest, I catch it occasionally to support/see my friend but that’s all.

yes please post them. i want to see. you know why? cause im sure they dont even exist. im a oth and naley fan but the james and joy bs is so sick.

Do you think James is serious with Eve or is he really the player some people say he is?

Yeah. I’m sure I’ve heard about those “tons of things” as well. And if my uncle and father weren’t a part of the crew, I’d believe that BS too, especially since several OTH fans come across as very “reliable” or “truthful” when they’re far from it.
Sophia and Austin are among the nicest cast members on the show and everyone from the cast to the crew will tell you that. The crew love them and Jana, Daphen, Sharon etc. are always raving about them. And if thats still not enough for you, then oh well. Go on believing what u want to believe.

sorry but before people like you showed up who claim to have family members working on the show there were two spoiler sources from season 1 to season 5 who no longer watch the show and who had extreme reliability and neither of them were singing sophia’s praises especially in the season 2-4 era. sorry.

not saying youre not who you claim to be but ive seen of the crazies in the fandom and i know who i trust.

Hahahahah @ 12/30/2010 at 1:17 pm

I’d really like to see these pictures too. So feel free to post them as soon as you can because right now, you just sound like a pyscho.

James looks great. It seems to be serious between these two

postwatcher @ 12/30/2010 at 1:19 pm

She is the spitting image of her father.


there are NO pictures. i remember when these psychos started all sorts of bs about how james and joy got together after season 4 and she was pregnant with his baby ROFL.

Oh I know which two sources you’re talking about and if I remember correctly, one of them had a hidden agenda because she was close to another person on the show and there was jealousy involved which is why I recall her saying some of the things she did. I’m not going to get into who and exactly why, but some of the crew were well aware of what was going on. And I’ve seen plenty of “reliable” people trash Joy and others as well and they weren’t singing praises about Joy either. Lets all believe that too, now shall we?
You listen to your “sources” and feel free to do so. I know what I know and its good to see judging by some other peoples posts that they seem to have their head on straight as well.

Wow, in some pictures she really looks like Shantel. I always read he is a player but if he flies to Dublin for her must be more

Thank you for reply my questions!
I really wanna know if there are any pic or proof of Shantel and Rob relationship, so if anyone have… feel free to post or comment about it xD

I reeeaaallyyy wanna know if james is the player some say he is or not

James loves to travel. So just because he flew to Dublin where her family happens to live doesn’t mean all that much.
I’m with the crowd-
Funny, how the person seems to have dissapeared now!!


At least three of the sock puppets on this thread are the same psycho who made up that bs story.

This whole thread is mostly bs.


for what it’s worth, people who dish out spoilers right now have said all nice things about joy, sophia and austin and im sure there’s merit to that.

lets stop this. there are enough crazies on the loose now claiming that joy and james had a love affair.

people who dislike joy and how claim to be “reliable” say all sorts of nasty things about her, many of which are falsified because its their agenda to promote hatred for her. same thing with sophia. i can see why you respond that way.

lets it call it a truce.

The comments were actually sane and normal right up until the James and Joy crap started.
The Naley fans are HILARIOUS.
I still find it funny how the fans that desperately want Joy and James to get together and have such a strong hatred for Michael, want for him to dissapear so James can make his “move.” If James really felt that way about Joy, even a little, he would’ve done something about it years ago. Deal with it!
But as for their friendship now, I have nooo idea why they don’t really talk all that much anymore. But if someone know, feel free to share. Maybe it has something to do with James and Shantel. Although I heard they were both in the wrong in that relationship. So maybe thats not it.

forgodssake @ 12/30/2010 at 1:51 pm

Mhhh, James doesn’t look like a player to me….

Don’t put al the crap on Naley Fan. I know i’m and i really don’t think about them dating. I mean it’s pretty hilarious because Joy seems happily married ( and for 5 years now!!!!!!!) and had her baby on the way so it’s pretty clear that the only one relationship that James and joy can have is purely friendship. as naley fan i really wish they can be friends but it’s not because they’re acting a couple that they have to be a couple, and most of the Naley fans are aware of that. they’re not all the crazy who claims that thy used to be dating.

Pictures please.

I’m a Naley fan and I never thought James and Joy dated, I actually never wanted them to date, I like that they just stayed friends. Plus Joy and Michael are too adorable and they seem so in love, its stupid that people hate Michael just because he was the one Joy fallen in love with instead of James. It is kind of sad though that Joy and James aren’t close like they were in the earlier seasons, they seemed like such adorable friends.

You seem to know a lot of think people, thank you to share : )
i must say it’s really scary and hallucinating to see how you know about their personal life and the details. i dont know why have the need to know about their personal life, we are interested . For me i was really concerned how the cast in general get along with others. Bc i want them all friends, i want no drama like for all series i watch.
But yes my question is now about a tense subject, it’s about Chad and Sophia i would love to know what happend really and how it was on the set after i just rewatch the last episod od the season 3 and it was so sad, hurtful, emotional and i know that sophia was really crying and i heard alot things about them,especially on the Sophia and Chad Fanforum, i heard a lot of anecdotes during the filming of episode.
Thank you to answer me

That subject is best left untouched seeing as how it always stirs up a lot of drama and arguments. Don’t even bother going down that road.
And this post is about JAMES and EVE. We’re almost at 150 comments and most of them have been about other cast members. Let’s drop this people before any fighting ensues and just talk about James AND Eve—no one else. Move on!

haha i love reading this oth storys cause all the people who post here are nut cases of there meds no one ones what happened with any of the relationships there just stupid rumors people make up to make themselves feel hell at least i had a good laugh you people are nuts

Shegoesherownway @ 12/30/2010 at 6:15 pm

It’s nice to have some news of James !
They are cute and they seem in love , right?

All the best.

It’s about time this came out. LOL They’ve been dating since July, so everyone in Wilmington and on the OTH set has known about this for a while now.

Jenna, James and Shantel weren’t really serious to begin with. it was FWB, just like it was with James and Sophia. He started dating Eve 2 months after breaking up with Shantel for good and Shantel has been with Rob Buckley for a while now.

hjsjisjis, it’s not cheating if it’s an FWB relationship which most of his relationships since he’s been on OTH have been.

bouba, James wasn’t actually serious with Rachael at all. LOL By all outward appearances, it would seem that way. But, that was actually also an FWB relationship. It was just on and off for a year and a half, so it seemed longer.

alex, you are right about Eve loving James more than he loves her. That’s definitely true.

hjsjisjis @ 12/30/2010 at 6:49 pm

Jamie you’re notorious for instigating the BS about James and Joie but at least you are correct in your claim that most of them were non-serious relationships.

Jokergurl @ 12/30/2010 at 6:50 pm

Cute couple, I didn’t know Bono had children, shows how much I pay attention.

kelsi, it’s pretty well known in Wilmington that Jana was the one who cheated, not Johnathon.

#149, you must be thinking about a different Jamie. Because I personally have never said anything about James and Joy. I’ve talked about James and Shantel and James and Sophia, but not James and Joy. It’s an ironic concept isn’t it that more than one person can actually have the same name? Weird, I know. Don’t start with me, loser.

She’s really pretty, just like her mother.

I bet Joy and Michael are dying to meet Bono now that James is dating his daughter. Isn’t his band Enation inspired by U2?

I am loving a little James attention and the fact that he has a life finally!! He is so private. It is good to see him out and about and having some fun. He is a fine Irishman after all so Papa Bono must be happy.

James and Joy have a great rapport and relationship and mutual respect they just can’t hang out because Joy is married and it wouldn’t be right with her husband across the country. We know how rumors get started in Wilmy! You can be friends and not hang out in bars together.

First of all, I am happy for him. He deserves to be happy after all he went through and I am not speakingabout Shantel, Sophia, Rachel or other girls but what went on with Joy.

As Emilia has said, Joy and James were together in the first season (not seriously), the broke up because of external reasons, Joy got married, Joy started to leave away from Michael (and understand this as you want but it was serious) then they got again together and by the end of season five Joy came back to Michael. Now they are supposed to be happy and having a baby but between Michael and Joy there was always James. They care about each other after all they went through but James can`t stand Michael (for lots of reasons) neither Michael can´t stand James (for the opposite reasons).


Because Mark has been sure enough to keep this story closed. Don’t you realise that by the time James and Joy story started to be in the media (just the gossip and rumors) at the beginning of season one he decided that it was better to be known Chopia story? Mark is too protective about James (He is his friend) and no matter what, what James says it is what counts for him.

He loves Joy too because she is a great girl but the laugh you’re having, shouldn’t be such a laugh if you knew the real story. Joy isn’t such a perfect wife (neither Michael) and although finally she has moved on with her problems and now she is happy with Michael, there was a really long time when she wasn’t (and read her blog to see it. Just a clue: when there aren’t frequent posts- I am talking about last autumn- it’s because things aren’t in good terms for her and Michael) You can believe me or not, but I have a close source.

What the hell? @ 12/31/2010 at 6:33 am


Are you kidding? When Joy doesn’t have frequent blog posts it means she’s having a rough time with Michael? LMFAOOOO. You few psycho naley fans take this JLs **** way too far. I first heard about it during season 4 and it was clearly not true even then. Let me ask you this (or rather maybe you should ask yourselves this), specifically HOW do you people “KNOW” this? You don’t. You’re willing to trust people who claim to be sources, who make up what is more or less fan fiction and you believe it because you so desperately want it to be true. That’s all there is to it. There is no proof and no evidence. No one who has ever been proven to be a reliable source has ever said that was true. In fact, the only people who ever believe/spread that rumor around are NH/JLs fans. That should tell you something. Do yourselves a favor and quit lying to yourselves.

@What the hell?:

I have my doubts about all the rumors going around. I don’t even believe that Sophia and James ever had a thing, that is just those crazy obsessed Brathan fans talking and nor do I believe that James and Shantel had a thing either. Poor James is so private and that gives everyone the right to make up any story they want about him and throw him with all the girls on the show. He is young and single and likes to hang out after work. He hangs out with the young and single cast members, does that mean he has to date them all!! Some of the so called true information on here is hysterical! I don’t believe for a second that Joy and James ever had a relationship or even dated. As adorable they are as Naley, they are total opposites in real life and are probably no more than good friends with totally different interests.

Anyone knows anything about Robert & Shantel??

if people really want i will send a link of pictures that clearl show him being affectionate with sophia ad him and shantel.

Lol you morons James and Joy were together, I actually hate Naley but I know for a fact because I used to be James’ neighbor and I remember when Joy would be there all the time. Emilia is right so don’t try and hate on her because you’re anti-Naley or you don’t watch the show or whatever. It’s funny when people always hate on the people who have the right facts.

God the cat is finally out of the bag. I’ve known about James/Eve forever now. I’m surprised it took this long for somebody to actually take pictures/send them in to JJ or whatever..

Sophia and James did date. There’s pictures of affection that’s clearly more than a friendship. Shantel and James were FWB, nothing serious, Shantel is really, um, friendly with everyone therefore the relationship couldn’t have worked. She was really weird, too, she showed up at his parents house in Hemet after they’d been over for quite some time and wanted to get back together in a real relationship… odd much?

Yep, Rachael and James weren’t actually that serious. He called her his girlfriend but they weren’t anything more than FWB. Like someone else said they were just together for a long time so it looked serious, plus there’s a lot of pictures of them.

James loved Joy but he wasn’t ready to commit, and she was. Don’t get me wrong though, Joy is anything but as perfect as she’s made out to be. She’s not the saint a lot of people claim that she is. Michael is a really good guy though, I don’t see why all these Naley fans hate him so much? He treats Joy right. They had their rough spots but he was really keen on making everything right. I’m glad they’re having this baby, I’m sure it will be good for them.

The thing is, is that you need to come to terms with the fact that Joy and James had something but now it’s over.. it’s done, Joy is having a baby with Michael, James is living his young life, it’s donezo!


Everyone is James’ neighbour these days.

Landfall, Wilmington. James lives there. I moved out a few years ago. Paul Johansson is/was there too. Chad/Sophia too I believe. You don’t have to believe me I’m just saying.

Ok, listen, with how popular the Nathan-Haley pairing is do you legitimately believe that in all these years, it never came out? When people have been dating on this set for years, and it’s been coming out into public knowledge, it’s not plausible. James and Joy are co-workers who share mutual professional and personal respect toward one another but that is all.

When would they have dated? When James was dating that girl in Season 1? Or was it when Joy married Michael in Season 3? Joy has spoken about her marital problems with Michael before so it’s no secret that they’ve had rough patches. Are you insinuating that she was having an affair with James Lafferty?

James and Joy never dated…In season 1-2 he was dating his high school sweetheart Kelly and Joy got married in season 3 and James started seeing Rachael during that time…they never dated..And James doesn’t live in Landfall anymore by the way…

@What the hell?:

You should ask I am not a Naley fan, neither a OTH fan at all since season two so you may believe whatever you want.

James broke up with his sweetheart at the middle of season one, Joy went on tour in the middle of season 2 but between that there’s a spot (if you know what I mean). Joy married in season three that’s right and James was in a FWB relationship with Rachael but in season four she wasn’t in the right place with Michael (let’s call it like that or you may call it a “break-up”) and he wasn’t seen nowhere in set. In season 5 yes. Guess why!

Joy and Michael are finally together, James has moved on, Joy too. Both are happy that’s what counts, as I’ve said James is a good friend of Mark (the director and boss of everything that goes around there) and a very very very loyal friend.

I wouldn’t know if James still lives in Landfall because like I said, I moved out.

James and Joy did date towards the end of Season 1 and up until Joy left to go on tour with Tyler.

James and Sophia did date. There are pics of them all over Just do a search and rare pics of them will pop up. Same goes for James and Shantel.

What the hell? @ 12/31/2010 at 5:38 pm


You knowing that info about where he lived and the fact that Paul and Chad & Sophia lived there proves absolutely nothing. Unfortunately for James, people posted that information online years ago. I’ve never even been to North Carolina and I could have told you that. So, that proves nothing.

@ana for someone who claims to not be a fan of Naley or even OTH, you sure “know” a lot about them. Again, everyone who believes that is either a Naley fan OR is just simply insanely gullible and probably believes EVERY single thing they read about this cast. I bet half of you who are claiming to know something happened between Joy and James actually originally read it in a JJ comment by some anonymous person who very could have easily been lying. Sophia and James had something. There are both pictures to confirm that as well as people who have actually been proven to be reliable. Shantel and James also had something. Again, there are pictures and proven reliable sources that have confirmed that. Neither of those things are in existence for the James and Joy rumors. You people are one level of crazy below the people who insist they’re married to Jensen and Jared and that their real wives are lying.

@What the hell?:

YES. These people are so delusional. Can you please leave Joy and James alone already people? She is pregnant for goodness sake and she has nothing to do with James Lafferty’s personal relationships.

To the people who whine that James and Joy don’t come over to the fans anymore, you have your answer. Thank these people over here.

James and Joy had something now it’s done. It was years ago. Just forget about it. Joy/James is never happening now, Joy is married to Michael and she’s pregnant.

So James Lafferty flat out denying in a magazine that he and Joy are not dating is not enough for you? Ok then. I guess delusion runs pretty deep.

I meant denying that he and Joy are dating. You get the point and it’s linked below. Jesus H. Christ

awh thats like 10 min from my house ahhh and for the comments on underage drinking well you can drink when your 18 in ireland :P


So you claim James and Joy dated in the early seasons (1? 2?) for a while and that you know this because you used to be his neighbor and apparently Joy was at his house a lot, right? And then James started dating Rachael in 2005 and Joy got married. Which was during season 3. Can I just point out that James moved into Landfall in 2005? Which makes your “observation” of him and Joy spending time together and “dating” completely made up. Sorry ;)

@ccghccghm: In Ireland the drinking age is 18 so she’s perfectly within her rights to be having a drink…

Not sure if anyone will see this but just wanted to chime in on the James/Joy comments from a few pages back. Joy and Michael had serious issues in their marriage during S4 and even the start of S5 and Joy herself has admitted this. James still considers Joy a friend and did during S4. He had some serious issues with the way Joy was treated by Michael and his family members. There are a lot more details but that’s the Reader’s Digest version.

They were in Dundrum shopping centre on new years eve. They were shopping in House Of Fraser :) Nobody knew who Eve was but James was very easy to recognise!

This girl is 19! How is this ok? He is 25! They drink all over Wilmington and always party and yes she is really underage…..Next

Yes Joy and Micheal had mariage issues she even wrote a song about that it’s called little Children, she even told during everly Q&A in May. She told that marriage was never easy and they had their problem but clearly now they are over all this problem and it’s good for them she deserve to be happy!!!

She looks like Sophia Bush.

Guess he has a certain type/look.

I don’t know what goes on in their private life but I’ve seen them out several times, & he looks so unhappy with her. I mean in this picture they look happy but I’ve seen them on other occasions & he looks so miserable! Eve isn’t really his type, in my opinion. She likes to party at clubs & he’s more of a low key, pub kind of guy. & don’t start sassing me for thinking I know him because I don’t but anybody who’s seen him out will know this, it’s not rocket science.

Why doesn’t this article bother to mention that One Tree Hill got its name from a U2 song in the first place? I think that’s pretty relevant, considering Bono is the lead singer. I find that quite amusing actually! :) James is so darn cute! :)


I’m interested in seeing these pictures. Are you willing to send them to me? If you are, let me know and I’l send you my email address. I’m really curious because James and Joy never dated so I want to see your so called “proof”.

Thank you for some other informative site. Where else may just I get that type of information written in such a perfect method? I have a project that I am just now operating on, and I have been at the glance out for such information.
