The National Enquirer says Jessica Simpson‘s plans to marry Eric Johnson have been thrown into disarray as Eric doesn’t want to sign the prenup Papa Joe Simpson is demanding. “[Joe] is insisting Jessica sign a prenup to protect her surprisingly large fortune, which is nearing a billion dollars because of her thriving fashion empire.” What the hell? A billion dollars? Maybe the government should stop borrowing from China and see if she’ll fund our education system!
Seems the Enquirer missed the news that Jessica’s nowhere near a billionaire—just because your name winds up on a billion dollars worth of clothing sold, that doesn’t mean you keep all of the cash. Still, the $20 million Forbes guesses she’s making could reasonably make Papa Joe paranoid. “Jess thinks a prenuptial agreement is unromantic and a bad omen. She doesn’t want to make Eric sign one—but her dad IS adamant.” See, if she really was a billionaire, there’d be plenty of cash to go around.
