Jessica Simpson is depressed over a weight gain and her supposed career slump, according to a completely wrong tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop has exclusively learned this report couldnâ€™t be further from the truth. We can bust the baseless claims.
The new cover of NW features recent photos of Simpson in a bikini with the fake quote, â€śI Feel Fat & Alone.â€ť The singer never actually made such a comment, but the same fabricated declaration is used as a headline inside the issue, too. According to the accompanying article, Simpson is â€śseriously down in the dumps as her weight spirals and her performing career slumps.â€ť A so-called â€śinsiderâ€ť claims she has â€śput on about 50 pounds,â€ť and often â€ścanâ€™t stand to look in the mirror.â€ť Contends the supposed source, â€śShe feels so alone and like no one understands what sheâ€™s going through.â€ť
The gossip magazine acknowledges Simpsonâ€™s personal life with Eric Johnson and their two kids is going strong, but maintains â€śthe root of Jessâ€™s unhappiness and weight gain is her professional life, or lack thereof.â€ť Though sheâ€™s the head of a â€śbillion-dollar fashion empire,â€ť itâ€™s pointed out her â€śacting and singing careers have stalled.â€ť And, alleges the outlet, â€śnow that sheâ€™s no longer on stage, sheâ€™s lost the motivation to stay in shape.â€ť
The publication next goes on to regurgitate some bogus claims. First, after insisting she has a happy marriage, the tabloid bizarrely brings up a September In Touch story that falsely alleged Simpson and Johnson were regularly having fights over her drinking. Then the magazine repeats untrue contentions about the couple adding another child to their family. As Gossip Cop has reported several times recently, Simpson is not pregnant and has no intention of expanding her brood.
That the outlet is spreading all of this misinformation indicates that it doesnâ€™t actually have a credible â€śinsiderâ€ť with real insight on Simpsonâ€™s life. But Gossip Cop does. We actually spoke with her rep, who tells us on the record that thereâ€™s no merit to this narrative about her being depressed over her size and the state of her career. It should be noted Simpson has regularly flaunted her appearance on Instagram in recent days, which goes against the notion that sheâ€™s unhappy with her looks.
As for returning to her musical roots, earlier this year Simpson shared an Instagram post showing she was working on new music. Just because she hasnâ€™t chosen to release any yet doesnâ€™t mean sheâ€™s in a â€śslump.â€ť Simpson appears to be living her best life. Itâ€™s a shame this publication is suggesting otherwise without legitimate evidence.
