Jessica Simpson is not “popping Adderall” and “addicted to dieting,” despite yet another false In Touch report, this one claiming the fashion entrepreneur has “turned to pills” in a compulsive quest to lose weight. Gossip Cop can bust the story.

According to the outlet, the “rail-thin fashion mogul” is allegedly “so obsessed with getting even skinner that she’s resorted to taking Adderall, a highly addictive stimulant drug.” A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “Her desperation to lose more weight has led to a real problem. She thinks she’s still overweight. She wants to lose 10 more pounds, and is willing to do whatever it takes to get there.”

In Touch claims a regular diet and exercise regimen is simply not enough for Simpson. “Jessica is out of control. Her family is very concerned,” the magazine’s source says of her alleged drug use. The outlet’s insider later adds, “She keeps telling herself, ‘Just a few more pounds.’ It’s the only thing she cares about anymore.”

We wish In Touch would care about getting things right. This is the same magazine that falsely claimed Simpson was pregnant with her third child last fall, and followed up that misfire with bogus stories about her allegedly choosing booze over her family and being pushed toward rehab by her family. NONE of those reports was true, and In Touch has been getting stories about Simpson wrong for years. A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop there’s “no truth” to the new Adderall rumor.
