Jessica Simpson and her younger sister Ashlee’s upcoming nuptials are threatening to tear them apart,” reports In Touch. According to the tabloid, Jessica is “livid” that her “time in the spotlight” following her planned July wedding to Eric Johnson “will be short, thanks to her sister.”

A so-called “insider” tells the outlet, “Ashlee scheduled her wedding [to Evan Ross] for just two months later, in September. She did it on purpose. She wants to have the bigger and more elaborate wedding than Jessica’s.” In Touch adds that Jessica is paying for Ashlee’s big day, “adding fuel to the fire.” “Jessica is tired of being the family breadwinner. She’s supported Ashlee for years and she’s fed up,” says the mag’s source. “The whole thing has become a real nightmare.”

Is anything more nightmarish than In Touch’s “reporting”?

Gossip Cop can point to numerous examples of made up stories that In Touch has fabricated about Jessica and Eric. The tab also has a rich history of manufacturing claims about Ashlee.

Gossip Cop didn’t exactly have to break a sweat finding examples.

The idea that the sisters are now at war over their nuptials is laughable. “They are very excited and happy for each other’s weddings,” a source close to the family tells Gossip Cop, calling the In Touch report “obviously not true at all.”
