Roommate of the Titans star receiver says he and Bachelor 8’s Sarah are “just friends”

An e.mail message allegedly written by Travis’ brother-in-law claimed that The Bachelor 8‘s “winner” Sarah Stone had broken up with Travis Stork and “might even be dating one of the Tennessee Titan football players.”

As it turns out, she may be dating a Titan’s roommate. That roommate, however, denies it. “We’re strictly just friends. I’ve been friends with Sarah for a long time,” Matt Lauderdale told the Tennessean. He’s the “roommate and business partner of Titans star receiver Drew Bennett,” according to the paper.

Why the suspicion? The Tennessean says that “Sarah and Matt also were spotted having dinner at Belle Meade eatery Sperry’s Friday night, and then Sarah and Matt went to a private post-Kid Rock concert party that same night at Layl’A Rul, and “[l]ast Tuesday, the two spent quite a bit of time talking together at the Nashville Lifestyles’ Singles in the City party at the same hot spot, Layl’A Rul, though they arrived separately.”

In other words, even though they’re not dating, Sarah’s spending way more time with Matt than she is with her reality TV match Travis.
