    The couple who became known as the "White House party crashers” after they snuck into an official state dinner were allowed inside Jerry Jones’ suite during the Super Bowl, a Dallas Cowboys spokesman confirmed Tuesday.

    Tareq and Michaele Salahi know a member of the Jones family and were allowed to enter their suite, said Cowboys’ spokesman Brett Daniels.

    "They stopped by to say 'hello' and then left," Daniels said. "They were not invited to the suite as guests. They did not crash the suite."

    He said the Salahis had tickets to the Super Bowl.

    The celebrity website first reported Tuesday that the Salahis crashed the party and were escorted out by security officers.

    Daniels declined to identify the Jones family member who knows the couple or explain their relationship, but he said no security violations occurred.

    The Salahis posted a photo on Facebook that appeared to show themselves with Jerry Jones Jr. inside the Super Bowl along with another unidentified couple.

    The Salahis did not immediately respond to e-mails for comment.

    It was not clear who else was in the owner’s suite at the same time. But during the game, it was full of big names, including former President George W. Bush, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and actors Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
