A new tabloid report maintains Jessica Simpson is pregnant, but itâ€™s not true. Gossip Cop can not only correct the claim, but also point out how the magazine is being untruthful about its sources. Conversely, a rep for Simpson tells us on the record sheâ€™s not expecting.
According to the National Enquirer, Simpson has a third â€śbaby on board.â€ť The supermarket tabloid falsely asserts that a source â€ścloseâ€ť to the actress-singer says sheâ€™s â€śabout three months along.â€ť After the same unnamed â€śsourceâ€ť declares in the publication thatâ€™s â€śshe pregnant,â€ť the untraceable individual adds, â€śSheâ€™s keeping it secret for now.â€ť
As its supposed proof, the magazine writes, â€ś[Simpson] looked just as put together getting off a flight to the Big Apple as she did getting on.â€ť The seemingly fake â€śsourceâ€ť offers, â€śThe fact that she looked good after the flight is a sign that sheâ€™s probably laying off the booze.â€ť The tabloid also features a photo of Simpson with a circle around her midsection with a caption that reads, â€śBursting bulge.â€ť
Allow Gossip Cop to tear apart the outletâ€™s bogus article. As noted above, Simpson is not pregnant, her rep assured us last week. So thereâ€™s no third â€śbaby on board.â€ť But whatâ€™s wrong on another level is how the tabloid has the gall to contend it has a source â€ścloseâ€ť to the fashion mogul. If the magazine truly had a Simpson insider, it wouldnâ€™t be wrong about her expecting and that person wouldnâ€™t share such personal news with a downmarket tabloid if Simpson were really â€śkeeping it secret for now.â€ť
Actually, Simpson has made no secret of not wanting another child. Last year, Simpson told Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show, that sheâ€™s happy with her two kids, Maxwell and Ace, but is â€śnot having a third.â€ť She even shared, â€śWe got an IUD, nothingâ€™s gonna get in that uterus.â€ť
Additionally, a real-life insider wouldnâ€™t base his or her contention that Simpson is pregnant on how she looked when getting off a plane. It appears the magazine manufactured its article on recent photos of Simpson and then concocted quotes that it ascribed to a source â€ścloseâ€ť to her. But itâ€™s all a lie and wrong.
Just days after wearing the outfit that the publication circled and captioned â€śbursting bulge,â€ť Simpson shared photos on Instagram of herself in a bikini while on vacation with her husband Eric Johnson in the Bahamas. In the images, itâ€™s clear the actress is not expecting. But this is hardly the first time the tabloid has used pictures to falsely allege Simpson is pregnant.
A year ago, the same often discredited magazine similarly maintained that photos then showed â€śunmistakable evidence of a baby bump.â€ť It also contended that Simpson was â€śat least three months along.â€ť The Enquirer was wrong and didnâ€™t have a legitimate source a year ago, and itâ€™s the exact same scenario now.
