How Did She Become An “Indie Rock Goddess”?

Jenny formed Rilo Kiley in 1998 with a few of her musician friends from Los Angeles. Jenny sang lead for the band and occasionally played the keyboards and guitar. Jenny later joined The Postal Service with Zooey Deschanel’s husband (and Death Cab For Cutie frontman) Ben Gibbard and pursued a successful solo career aside from her work with Rio Kiley.

What Is Jenny’s Connection To Jake?

Jake first noticed Jenny when she was performing with Rilo Kiley and the pair started to date in 2001. While their relationship didn’t last, Jake and Jenny stayed close and the Prince of Persia actor even took then-girlfriend Reese Witherspoon to see Jenny perform at Coachella in 2009.

So…Are Jake and Jenny Back Together?

Hardly. Jake is still healing from his recent break-up with Taylor and Jenny is rumored to be dating Jenny and Johnny bandmate Jonathan Rice. Jake probably just felt like taking an old friend with him to the Golden Globes. Isn’t that sweet?
