Rumors We Love: Jessica’s Dad And Fiancee Feud Over Her Billion Dollar Empire

Jessica Simpson, Eric Johnson and Joe Simpson

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.
